This is a sleek center console with clean, attractive lines that is all about fishing and playing in the sun but also cleans up nicely enough to go to dinner on in the evening. Has a live well behind the center console that holds bait, fish, and serves as deck storage also, plus bow storage up front. 250 HP Suzuki with approximately 400 hours provides a comfortable, fuel efficient 30 knot cruise with plenty of power left and over 40 knot top speed. Has been used primarily for fishing in the bays and occasionally out to 30 miles offshore. Performs admirably in seas up to 4’ wind waves. Was used twice to pull skiers and a tube. Has plenty of power to get a 220 LB. guy up on a competition slalom ski with three other people on-board. Also has a custom stainless steel outrigger pole designed to tow a side-scan sonar for finding fishing spots.
Trailer is a tandem axle aluminum I-beam drive-on with hydraulic surge brakes. Despite being a 27’ long boat it still tows behind a ½ truck or large SUV.
Boat, motor and trailer were all in 100% perfect condition, a fresh coat of wax and recent Suzuki dealer engine service when it was stolen. The engine is repairable but may be easier to replace the top end. The dealer said the ECU (engine control unit) was damaged and stopped the assessment at that point. All large electronics like the VHF radio, stereo, satellite radio, etc. and most wiring have been removed. Has transducer from Furuno sonar installed which should be fine to reuse. Trailer recently passed a safety inspection but needs bearings. After being recovered the boat was thoroughly washed, compounded, polished, waxed and looks great again. This boat needs upper engine work and new electronics to repair the theft damage. It is a newer boat and was in perfect condition when stolen as such it is a great opportunity to get a boat that even after repairs will cost substantially less than an equivalent used boat and have all current new electronics, etc.
This boat owned by a USCG licensed master captain with over 30 years of boating experience. Kept this boat for enjoyment. He is running private yachts in Alaska now and it is difficult for him to deal with repairs when he is away. Has a mechanic 250 miles away with a Suzuki power head and all other required parts who will do the engine work. A buyer can have a great deal on a fairly new boat just by repairing the trailer bearings and towing the boat up the coast to get the engine repaired then install whatever electronics are desired.
