Hi everyone,

I have a pretty rare 1973 built Caribbean Galaxy 67 and want to find out any history on this boat or model.

It has a AQ110/ 100 Volvo Penta inboard engine and leg built in 1973 model is 168 .3

Does anyone know how many they built? Specs or any brochures or information on this model.

Any help would be amazing thank you.

Hi, I'd like to welcome you to the Board.

Would you be able to upload some photos of your boat?

This is a classic boat; it is a 1973 Caribbean Galaxy 67í that has been well looked after and kept almost new to its former glory. The entire boat including the motor and trailer has been maintained in an amazing original condition. In its original colours, all the jewellery is in amazing condition. It has new carpet original trimmed seats in immaculate condition, new battery and 80-litre fuel tank.

The motor is a 1973 Volvo Penta AQ110/ 100 Sterndrive, and all are serviced, the twin Stromberg CD150 carburettors have been fully serviced as well as the leg and prop balanced. It's all running so smooth and strong.  Itís an inboard 110HP four-cylinder power which has little use since being rebuilt, it has even compression across all four cylinders and has been serviced with a new water pump and plugs.

Lovely boat in excellent & well kept condition.  I am sure you get many questions or comments at the launching ramp or jetty.

This might be stating the obvious, but have you contacted carribean boats

https://www.caribbeanboats.com

They're still operating in ferntree gully. Worth a call. I'm sure they'll be interested to see the boat.
