Issues: Some of the exterior topside vinyl needs to be replaced.

The hull generally appears to be sound but the boat has not been on the water for 9+ years so it will require some attention.

The canvas cover and camping enclosure is included but the canvas is well worn and will require replacement or repair.

The boat is currently on trailer at owner’s residence 10 minutes west of Minneapolis, MN.

Call, text or email to arrange a time to check it out or with any questions.

Built by Skiff Craft (aka Henry Boats) of Plain City, Ohio, home to skilled Amish and Mennonite craftsmen.

The company is still in existence today, still building high quality boats but for a whole lot more than the price of this used one.

Skiff Craft also continues to offer factory parts service.

This cabin boat was designed for the open waters of the Great Lakes.

Its high gunwale design and enclosed helm station and dinette under a hard top provide plenty of protection from the weather for captain and guests.

This is a comfortable boat for day or over-night cruises.

The dinette seats 4, a long lounge at the stern facing forward provides another 5 seats, and there’s room for a few deck chairs.

The 8’ beam enables relatively easy trailering.

A complete canvas camping enclosure can accommodate a family of 4 or 5 for an overnight cruise.

The large cuddy cabin berth sleeps 2, two main deck seats can be converted to lounges which also double as beds, and the lounge across the stern of the boat could also be used as a bed.
