Looking at a 196 SSI

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

New to the forum here as my wife and I are looking into purchasing our first boat for use with our young family!

We currently have our eyes on a 196 ssi and we're arranging to go view the boat from a private seller

Any recommendations for what to look for and specifically with this boat we should pay most attention to?

Also I will be hauling this boat with the trailer that's included using my 2010 escalade. Never towed anything on this thing before?

Your help and input is greatly appreciated!

What year is the boat?  What engine?  What outdrive?  What prop?  How many hours on the engine?

It's a 2011 with about 150hrs on a Merc 4.3L V6

As for the outdrive and prop that I don't have info on

You shouldn't have any issue towing the 196 SSI with the Escalade. The tow capacity of the Escalade is around 8300 lb and the boat with trailer will be under 5000 lb. My 2009 196 SSI with trailer is only 4300 lb. enjoy!
