The boat is a 2006, sold new from a dealer in Pensacola in late 2008. I have all the original owners paperwork, including the original sales brochure with pricing, and am including a copy of the 25 hour service completed in March, 2009, which should substantiate the original owners claim. These were k boats back in the day when the economy wasn’t the greatest. It was taken to Cape Coral, Fl and put on the owners lift. We purchased the boat in May of 2014 with only 280 hours on it. It was dry stacked in our marina in Hudson while we owned it. Kept covered and very well taken care of. In 2015 I had a trailer built for it by Peterson Trailers in Gibsonton. In 2019 I spent over in new brakes, rotors and calipers. Just this month I installed four new Goodyear Endurance 215/75R15 tires for , installed a new Demco surge controller for last week. It has a ladder and a full size spare with a hub.

The boat is 26’8" overall. From the tongue of the trailer to the end of the motors is 32′. It has a nice spacious 9’8" beam. The boat with the new Tohatsus weighs in around 8,000 lbs. Hull weight of the bare hull is 4550 lbs.

It came stock with a SeaLand flushable head with a 20 gallon holding tank and overboard macerator. This unit was completely rebuilt in May with a new pump, seals and pressure relief valve for over . The system works perfectly and will be one of the reasons your lady will enjoy a day on the boat! Other features are a pair of tackle storage boxes, 20 gallon rear livewell, 15 gallon fresh water tank, 23 rod holders including another four in the head that can be locked. Overhead console with VHF radio, three spreader lights and switches. Clarion radio and four working speakers. 202 qt rear seat/fish box. the front fish box is used for below deck storage and the macerator pump has been disconnected. It has forward seating and the cushions were never used as long as I have owned the boat. The cushion on the rear seat/fish box is a little worn. All of the coaming pads have been replaced at various times over the years. Most including the helm seat are in very good shape.

I repowered the boat in March of 2021, I replaced the orginal Honda BF150’s with almost 900 hours on them, installing a pair of Tohatsu/Honda BFT225’s, which was the optional power for the boat back when built. These motors come with a full five year warranty that can be transferred to the new owner. At the time of the repower I had a Simrad AP44 autopilot installed. They also installed four new transom thru hulls from Gem. The fuel tank was then drained and flushed. With the motors came new fuel/water separators and all new hoses back to the motors. Shortly after installing the motors I had a rebuilt larger Seastar helm and motor steering cylinders installed. The motors have 101 hrs port, 103 hours stbd.

I have continued to improve and update this rig. My first project was to install a Lewmar ProFish windlass in 2015. It has a 22lb stainless claw anchor and 300′ new 1/2" rode with 15′ galvanized chain. I installed the first of two Rhodans in 2018, it was an 84". In January 2021 I installed a new 96" along with an upgraded Shuttleslide. the three Duracell AGM’s are group 31’s using a Yandina Trollbridge combiner to charge them when on house power or from one of the Tohatsus when under way. It works flawlessly and after a day of fishing I use about 20-25% of battery power.

The ttop fabric and lacing was replaced last year.

In May I replaced the original 2 bank charger and installed a Guest 3 bank that takes care of the motor batteries and two house batteries. I have installed a pair of LifePo 100 amp batteries that are charged via the motors or when on shore power. At that time I installed a pair of Marinco electric reel outlets. I also replaced the Lenco control box () and put in a new control switch. I have also replaced the Lewmar control switch. I replaced the Furuno 585 with a Garmin 943XSV and a Garmin GT51 transducer. I also installed some led lights on the ttop that does a good job for night fishing. There are three spreader lights if needed. There is one underwater light. I have installed new baitwell/washdown pump.

I just had a new Laporte cover made for the boat, it was .

We have installed a rudimentary sunshade that works very well and can be removed if needed. It uses a pair of extendable painter poles and is ty wrapped to the ttop frame.

It has a Garmin 8212 that I installed in late 2017. I just installed a new Garmin 943XSV with a Garmin GT51 transducer for . It replaced a Furuno 585 I was using as a bottomfinder.

Sold with all the required USCG safety gear, including an eight year old ACR Epirb.

With the new power I can still see 2mpg, but now at a 37 mph cruise. With a light load I have seen 53 mph.

The boat shows as well as any five year old boat shows. Maybe better. There are no stress cracks anywhere and none of the gelcoat has any dings. This hull was formed and they used a lot of kevlar in the hull. It was an expensive boat to build. I have the boat detailed every year.

NADA shows this boat to be worth over k with the new motors, but not giving me anywhere near the credit for the Rhodan/battery install. I have no idea if that has adjusted for this market. I have seen the install be as high as .

Looking for folks in the Tampa BaySt Pete area to drop by and see for yourself how well the boat/motors/trailer shows, and make a purchase before I list it with Bob on Anglers Edge and start dealing with people from all over. Once I decide to list it I will start at k. For anyone reading this ad and who is either local or sends a surveyor my price will be k. Yes, I can seatrial the boat. But only after a purchase agreement has been signed and a deposit received.

Note: Nkers Needed. I have successfully sold a handful of boats and don’t need your help. POP yachts especially.
