Everything Counts


1986 Amstar Lazer Mini-Speedboat

This is a cool, rare, mini-speedboat in excellent condition with almost all the bells and whistles.  I've put a lot into this boat, including a brand new engine!  Current photos are below.  Contact me if you want to talk turkey!

The Lazer isn't just your average little mini-speedboat.  Here is some information about the boat:


It can be easily trailered by almost any vehicle.  The size and shape make it easy and convenient to operate on water. As it is an outboard boat, it has forward and reverse and is controllable at slower speeds whereas the jet pump style boats do not have control at slower speeds.  The cockpit provides a safe, dry, stable ride vs. a jet ski.  It is unbelievably cool!

This Lazer has a lot more bells and whistles...

The BRAND NEW (purchased at the Boat Shoppe in Fresno in October of 2017) 40 HP Evinrude engine starts every time, has nine-and-half-years remaining on it's [transferable] warranty,  and is legal to run everywhere in the world.  Along with the motor are BRAND NEW controls and instruments!

RECENT WORK (Since March of 2015):

• Bearings packed on the trailer by Carroll's Tire Warehouse. It's ready to hit the road!

• BRAND NEW red and white seats 

• BRAND NEW carpet!

• BRAND NEW cockpit cover!  WOW!  Beautiful custom work!

• BRAND NEW tires and wheels from Carroll's Tires

• BRAND NEW jack in case you get a flat tire on the road

• BRAND NEW winch on the trailer 

• BRAND NEW trailer guides to help the boat easily align on the trailer  

• Did I mention you can plug in the boat in your garage so your battery does not go dead?

• Did I mention the Viper propeller is insanely aggressive?


• A few spots of rust on the trailer (trailer is otherwise in great shape, very roadworthy).

• Trailer lights are being replaced at the present as they were "flickering."

• There are few nicks in the paint on the boat, hardly noticeable (it's a 30 year-old boat).

• Steering to the left takes a little extra effort due to steering cable being cramped (it's a small boat).

The boat and trailer have current registrations and titles.  All paperwork is up to date, baby!

There will be a few add-ins for whoever purchases the boat, including 3 life preservers, a throw preserver, an oar, fire extinguisher, anchor, oil for the engine, ropes, temporary LED travel lights for the trailer, and probably a few other things I can round up from around the garage.  Heck, I can even throw in four old trailer tires and wheels if you want. 

You might be wondering why I'm selling this classic vessel... Well, I'm getting a little older - this boat needs to go to someone younger who wants to go jump waves and speed up and down rivers at break-neck speeds!  But, I still love this boat and if I don't sell it I will continue to enjoy it.

Whether you're a racer, a cruiser, or a wave-jumper, this boat is for you!

A Final Note...

You may be asking how $10,000 is a deal... you may be thinking you only want to spend $2000...

1) The Evinrude 40 (Note:  the Evinrude shown in the sidebar is a 50 HP and not the actual engine on the Lazer) is almost brand new, works perfectly, and has 9 years left on the transferrable warranty; it is worth $9000 right now.  If you want to purchase the motor individually for the remaining payoff price. let me know, I would consider selling the engine.

2) I can't tell you how much time and money I've put into this boat and trailer to make them [almost] turnkey.  The boat itself has to be worth approximately $5000 to $6000 by itself (without motor).

Together (boat, engine, and trailer) are worth $15,000 if they're worth a dime.

But I'm willing to sacrifice now for only $10,000!
