This boat is turn-key, ready to fish or cruise. The engines have low hours for their age as the boat has primarily been used for trips to the sandbar (which is a 10-min run) for the past decade. They are running great as they have just been tuned-up and received new manifolds and risers. The shaft logs were also recently rebuilt and the struts were done a few years ago. The fuel tank is original fiberglass and has had zero issues with non-ethanol gas. Performance wise you can expect anywhere from .9 to 1.3/4mpg and 23 to 27mph at cruise, depending on load and cleanliness of the bottom. Clean and relatively light she will run 27mph at 1.3. Juicing her up into the 4 barrels she really comes alive and turns heads. She is very solid, but not perfect by any means and could use a bit of attention in some places. If you are looking for a well-outfitted fishing boat that will take you 50-miles offshore tomorrow at a price that leaves room for gas money or a cruiser that is a good candidate for a light restoration, this boat deserves a look.

Located in Alligator Point, FL (Big Bend / Panhandle)

Asking $16,500
