1987 Wellcraft 222 Elite
The Irish Wench has a New 375HP 400 Mercruiser with zero hours and a completely rebuilt Alpha1out drive with approximately 100 hrs.
She has power trim and tilt; tilt wheel steering; Marine band radio and AM/FM stereo with cassette player.
Her bimini top, full camper top, and mooring canvas are color matched and are in excellent condition.
She has more than sufficient power to pull multiple skiers or 'tubers' from the factory mounted tow ring.
The tandem axle trailer has surge brakes; the trailer and the 'Wench' have only been used in fresh water.
The original owners manuals are still with the boat; neither the boat nor the trailer have ever sustained any sort of damage.
The deep 'V' design of the hull cuts through the water like a hot knife through butter, it also keeps the boat very stable in rough water.
Many friends have remarked at what a 'romantic' boat this is: the full width swimming platform is very convenient for mooring in some little secluded bay for a private swim, and the cuddy cabin is very cozy and is quite comfortable to sleep in, whether it's for overnight or just an afternoon catnap.
The Irish Wench has been used gently, and has been well maintained.
She is the perfect 'starter' boat, much like a perfect 'starter' house. **Recent appraisal for insurance valued this at $12,500.00 so this is an excellent value!
