    Here and here I didn't see anything between 23' and 27', except for a 25' Express Cruiser which was built in the early days of Uniflite.

    Are you sure about the 24' ?

    Your boat looks like the 27' model or bigger and your beam fits that too....

    Below: Uniflite 27' Express -- Length 27' 3" -- Beam 9' 7" -- Draft 2' 8" -- Weight #5,300

    Humm..., I wonder why the 27' is lighter, maybe because of the shown outboard the 27' in post#2 has no inboards . . . :confused:

    Or something is wrong with above info ? ? ?

    Cheers,

    Here's a Uniflite 31' Sport Sedan for sale, which is different from your boat.

    They don't tell weight but it's on a 2000 Puget triple axle road trailer.

    Here you have a 31' Uniflite Sport Sedan project on the forum, maybe the guy has info about weight.

    Best click the button ‘‘Flag for Moderator[​IMG]’’ in post #1, and ask the Moderator to move this thread to the Powerboats forum*, also ask him to edit the thread title like you've done in post #1.

    * Maybe you have a better chance on responses over there.​

    Also better edit the length in this post.

    Good Luck !

    There is a Sport Sedan 32 FE listed by the manufacturer. The listed weight is 13,500 lbs. However, that will not include any equipment or probably a full fuel tank, water, etc. Your best bet is to go to a truck scale and accurately weigh the boat. The fees are pretty cheap, maybe $15.00 or so. Also, since you list your location as space, none of the options we offer may work. An actual location will get you better answers.

    All right Gonzo [​IMG]

    But to weigh it he needs a trailer first, and for a trailer he'll need to know the weight first . . :cool:

    Or he'll has to rent a extra heavy trailer for the weigh job :idea:

    Catch 22, I know. I suppose it is possible to estimate the weight of the extra gear, or take it out and weigh it.

    Here a Uniflite Crosair 32 (PBR Mk II)

    [​IMG]

    - - - Displacement approx 16,500 lbs. (7,484.3 kg) - - -

    Displacement is the weight of the boat including all equipment, full water and fuel tankage, cargo and supplies, crew and gear, and everthing else on board.

    So estimate and/or weigh the weight of the stuff that you want to leave out from the trailer and calculate the weight that has to be trailered.

    Have that foot less length as your safety margin.

    Good Luck !
