  • Sea Ray Hull # ID

    hello all, i just signed up on the forum.
    is there a resource out there where i can enter my hull number and it will tell me details specific to my boat, such as any options it originally came with?
    with a car VIN you can determine specifics and options that came on that particular car. is the same true for hull numbers on a boat? if so, where would i go about finding this information? maybe sea ray offers this service?
    by the way, my boat is a 1973 srv18. thanks.

      I also need the same information. I was able to find a little info on http://searay.com if you look in the archives you might find your boat.

          i contacted them too. they were worthless. unless you're going in to buy a new boat, i guess they don't have the time.

            Helo linckeil, not an expert on the subject but I will tell you what I do know for sure. On boats from the 1960's to mid 70's the first three letters should designate the manufacturer, in your case they should read SER. Some manufacturers used 2-0r 3 numbers to indicate the model number which would be the next numbers following. The 9th and tenth numbers indicate the month of the calander year, they go from 01 (January)- 12 ( December) The last 2 numbers should indicate the year, in your case the should read 73. Some companys followed with a dash on the end of the series numbers with 2 or three numbers which would indicate the length in your case -18. Something changed in the numbering system mid 70's but not sure exactly what date. I dont believe in your year the HIN numbers did indicate what options were on the boat, but dont hold me to that. Hope this may help out in some way.
