1983 Key West #1
- Stock #095828 -
Diamond in the rough! Power AND speed = GREAT charter boat!
This is a serious boat.
#1's are well known in the Keys as commercial fish and dive charter boats, as well as being suitable for pulling traps.
This boat is powered by twin Johnson & Towers turbo charged diesels coupled with Allison gear boxes producing 485hp each! Raw water cooled, she cruises easily at 16kts and get you where you need to go with a top end speed of 32kts! Seller just had racks adjusted in Oct. 2015 by reputable marine mechanic in Key West. Seller ran engines when I viewed this boat and they sounded GREAT! Engines are housed in engine boxes in the house.
Batteries are DEKA 8 D's and are charged by engine mounted alternators or the on board battery charger. There are (2) battery switches and a constavolt too.
The cockpit is a large, lending itself to be a great fishing / diving platform and would be well suited for commercial / charter work. There is cockpit lighting available for those days when the fishing is just to good to stop and the sunsets before making it back to the slip. The custom built sun shade was added in November 2013. The frame is made of schedule 80 2" aluminum and the cross supports are schedule 80 1" aluminum. The shade is provided by Sunbrella fabric, which is top of the line fabric made for marine applications.
The bridge has great visibility for running offshore and maneuvering in tight marinas. The GPS / chart plotter / depth / fish finder will give you all the data you need.
The large foredeck will be a popular place for the kids and laying out.
The cabin houses the (2) engine boxes and small fridge and freezer. Walking forward and down a few steps you'll find (2) bunks to port and a head to starboard. There is a V-Berth forward with an anchor chain locker in the bow.
You can't have a boat with the history this one has without a few battle scars. Her scars are well earned and each one surely has a great story.
The next owner can keep her as she is and keep working her, or start over and customize her to meet their needs.
The possibilities are almost endless with this vessel.
