    Pictures of Older, Rare, Different, Odd or Collectable ChampioNs

    Over the course of a few years I have been collecting pictures of Older, Rare, Different or Collectable ChampioNs (Mainly from Criags List). If you have any to add please do so if it meets the above criteria. Please add any information you can with the picture such as year, make, model ect ect. Hope everyone enjoys.

    1980 Champion Tunnel Hull. Only about 10 or so made.







    1981 201 I/O. Only a few made, didn't sell well and ran like crap. Pops said they were to heavy and just made the balance of the boat awful.




    201 Mirage Speed Boat (early 90's I think)




    Early 80's 16'8 "Swift" speed boat


    Early model 1980s 14ft Champion


    Mid 90's 14ft Champion


    1979 Champion Python Tri-hull (the Pythons were the econ models. Nothing more than a plain old champion with no top cap.

    Early 80's Tri-hull "Fish and Ski". One of the last years they made the old tri-hulls.

    Very interesting look back, Thanks
    My 96 was a dealer prepped boat, it was done by the dealer as a West Coast Special, this added, hydraulic pedestals, and some other mods that the base tournament didn't come with, I up graded to a EFI instead of the carbed model mercury.
    I know the next year I believe they added hydraulic steering which I added later.
