SOLD 2015 Boss 182 Conversion Amphibious

SOLD – Rare opportunity to purchase a pre-owned Boss conversion! This Boss 182 amphib conversion was completed in 2015 and only has 150 hours since conversion.  Avionics Suite has been updated to Garmin G500 Glass panel, active traffic, XM WX, SVT, EDM 930 glass engine monitor, G530W/G430W. Available on 3000 Wipline amphibs and factory gear or oversized gear with big tires! This is the highest HP conversion available for any 182.  This was not just an engine swap, but a firewall forward conversion and a factory new 580 engine.  The Boss conversion includes an additional firewall beef up and heavy duty engine mount, thus allowing for a very smooth running machine, when paired with Hartzell’s new Composite Trailblazer 82” propeller (hardest pulling propeller available)! If it’s a small strip you need to get in and out of on wheels, or small lake on amphibs and want all the modern amenities of the new 182 fuselage, this is the way to go!
