I purchased this boat from the original owner last year, fished
and played extensively this past summer. It is a proven fish
with Dorado, Yellowtail, Yellowfin, Calicos, and Halibuts
all hitting the
deck this past summer. I came down from a 37 foot Egg Harbor
decided this boat is just too small for my needs…now I need
to go back up.
This boat will make the wife and kids happy AND impress your
buddies during the Tuna season. You can bloody the decks on
and entertain your friends for a Sunday bay cruise (there
is a retractable
couch in the transom) …or take the wife and kids to Catalina
weekend. Recreational scuba diving in local spots in comfort
can be done as well.
If this boat were 5 feet longer I wouldn't be selling it!!!
The boat has been meticulously maintained from the original
many upgrades installed in the last three years.
Ask me to see the records!!
The starter and starter solenoid were replaced mid-summer
'04 as well as
two new batteries being installed.
Inverter needs to be replaced (or fixed) it blew out and
I don't know if it is a fuse
or internal. Wiring is in place, however.
