This is a 1998 Stratos 2100 CC (21′ 6″ overall), also known as the 2160. For a brief history summary, Stratos got their start with bass boats from the owner and designer Earl Bentz (now with Triton Boats). While Stratos was owned by OMC (Evinrude/Johnson), Earl Bentz remained the president and expanded the boating line to include large center consoles designed for the saltwater/offshore market. Stratos/OMC was eventually bought out by the company that owned Hydra Sport boats, so Hydra Sport continued making large center consoles and the Stratos brand was used exclusively for premium bass boats.
This boat is extremely well taken care of and is in excellent condition. It is turn key ready to go boating, and is an offshore capable center console with a 225 V6 Evinrude that runs great and has also been well maintained. I have put about 550 hours on this boat/motor, and it has never left me stranded.
The trailer is a 2008 Aluminum I-beam purchased from Owen and Sons. It has new torsion axles, hubs, and four wheel DeeMaxx Max Coated disc brakes all installed 2 years ago. Tie-Down Engineering surge brake receiver is only 1 year old and has an integrated electronic reverse lockout solenoid to disengage the brakes while backing up. Load Range C Tires are less than 2 years old and are in like new shape with receipt of purchase.
The boat has all brass/stainless through hull fittings. Stainless steel prop is in perfect condition. Throttle and shift cables just replaced. Hydraulic outboard steering works perfect and has zero leaks. Bennet hydraulic trim tabs work great with no leaks. Engine electronics and charging system updated by Mike’s Evinrude in St. Pete. Custom waterproof genuine Sunbrella fabric T-Top canvas is less than 6 months old and is sewn with premium Gore Tenara PTFE Lifetime Thread and premium stainless steel grommets. Original captains chairs were removed and replaced with a new custom leaning post that has a removable back rest, tilt-up foot rest, and adds 4 more rod holders to the boat. Leaning post is designed to fit a 65 Yeti underneath it. Custom two-toned SeaDeck non-slip cushion material installed around helm, under leaning post, on center console foot well, side bolsters, and rear seat cushion backs. This material is great because it won’t get hot in the sun, provides cushion and non-slip for your feet and legs, and is very easy to keep clean. SeaDek foam at the helm is double thickness for added cushion while standing underway, and the non-skid properties keep the cooler planted under the leaning post in all sea conditions. Leaning post and custom SeaDek are just over a year old.
