    I don't know the year, but it looks to be a 17 footer. I derived at this by counting the number of boards on the dock. I assume that each board is 6 inches. The beam is probably 6ft 4in. My boat is a 1988 model, and it is mostly blue on the sides. I think that some of the earlier bluefins where white, like this one. I would google some images and see if you can narrow down a year.

      Welcome to iboats Flyaway, are you thinking about buying that boat?

      Looks like a late 70s-early 80s model to me, based on the bow rails and paint scheme.

      Nearly identical layout to the Starcraft Holiday/Jupiter models with the closed bow.

      Looks like 17-18 feet in length ballpark.

        It looks like a 18 foot Sportsman. In looking at 1980 specs:
        Center length 18'1"
        Beam 78"
        Capacity 2000 lbs
        Capacity People 900 lbs/7 people
        Maximum HP 120
        Weight 835 lbs
        Bottom Guage .080
        Side Guage .063
        Bow Depth 36"
        Transom depth 20"
        Transom Guage .090
        The color is a white bottom with a blue topside
        The Bluefin in the photo has a different Bluefin decal than in 1980

            I have a 1982 Blue Fin Sportsman 16'. I am glad to see your boat with the original top and cover.
