In 2008 the boat went through a complete overhual.
Used yanmar 4lh-dte 170hp engines were installed with approximately 1400 hours.
Both engines have new air coolers, turbo rebuilds and new exhaust elbows.
One engine has a new heat exchanger assembly.
When the engines were installed a new 225 gallon fuel tank was installed with new fuel lines.
New 11/4" shafts were installed with dripples shaft seals at the same time with new props.
The exhaust system is all new as well.
The electrical system was upgraded at the same time with new breakers panels for 12 volt and 120 volt and about 90% rewired.
The top side of the boat was painted with awgrip in 2008.
The seats have been re-upholstered in 2010 and the coaming pads were re upholstered in 2008.
The v birth cushions were re upholstered in 2008.
The teak gunwales were removed and there was some rot in them that was cut out and repaired with new marine plywood and fiberglass. (there are pictures available of the repair) In 2008 a new icom radio and antenna, furuno 1650 gps, and stereo were installed.
There is a furuno 600l fishfinder and a furuno 1700 series 36 mile radar.
There is a 2008 zodiac six man cannister life raft mounted on the bow and a 2008 mcmurdo epirb.
The boat has a microwave and a refrigerator.
There is an enclosed head with a new macerator pump in 2010.
The boat has a tower with upper controls.
The boat cruises at 20 knots and tops out around 25 knots. the boat is extremely fuel efficient, we would cruise out 60 to 70 miles troll all day and cruise back on 75 gallons.
The boat has outriggers and a center rigger.
The boat handles well and is a great boat for offshore on a budget and cost hardly anything to stay inshore.
This is a great entry level offshore boat.
It does not have a generator but I used a Honda 2000 that I strapped up on the tower and used the shore power cord to power lights, battery charger and microwave.
The generator and thousands of dollars worth of fishing gear to make you turn key for offshore can be included if I get the right number for the boat. $37,000 or best offer.
