Brokers Comments

This owner has changed his fishing habits and now travels with other captains.  The Chris has been on the hard for three years…so it’s time to pass the experience on to the next owner.  This listing is brief…but everything is there to start offshore fishing right away.  Or, you may want to convert this one to a day boat and leave the fishing to the others.  Either way, here’s a solid glass deep V offshore machine complete with dependable Volvo diesels.  Come by and have a look.  This might suit your needs.
