1984 Stingray 190SVB. She is in her 34th season – garage stored since new and never spent an overnight in the water. All original including canvas. This Stingray is owned by Jim and Deborah Seufert of Wheatfield, NY
She was delivered to the dealer in December 1983 during a massive snowstorm. We had to wait a week until the roads were cleared to get her home. She lives in a custom built garage, and trails behind a dedicated period correct towcar.
