Height and length of 247 on trailor


Recommended Posts

I currently do not have a trailor for my 247 but am considering purchasing one for storage. Trying to figure out if it will fit in my garage. I have searched to forum for the numbers but can't find it on a 247. The trailor I am looking at is a tandem boatmate with swing away tongue. Does anyone know the height of the boat with illusion folded down as well as the length on trailor with tongue swung away? Thanks.

I am going to guess 8.8' high and at least 28' long if you have the power wedge :unsure: My XTi is 7.6' high unless I drop the tongue all the way to the floor just clearing any rubbing on the trailer. I got it down to 7' exactly taking off the tow ball, I don't store in the garage anymore but have it in there now getting it ready for this summer. I'm sure other people will chime in soon.

My 247 sits in a 30' storage unit and with the swim platform on and the tongue swung away I have about 2-1/2-3ft to spare. So, approx 27-27-1/2 ft. The swing away only adds about 8" to the total length of the boat with platform. With the tongue extended, it just fits by 2-3" inside the 30ft unit. That is with an Extreme trailer.

Here's mine on a triple axle Extreme trailer with a swing away hitch (shown here on 17's). A tandem axle trailer won't be any shorter overall. It measures 30ft from back of swim step to front of the hitch, less 2ft for the swing (28ft if you unbolt it). Height is 9'8" to the top of the beam on my Illusion-X on my current 20" wheels, plus around 3" for any balls mounted on top of the tower = 10ft overall.
