This fantastic 2004 28 ft True World Marine TE289 classic walk around fisherman just repowered March 2014 with twin Mercury 2 stroke Optimax 225 hp outboards is located in New Jersey and turnkey ready to go.
These hard to come by TWM 28’s are prized by charter captains because they just plain make fishing sense. The 289 TE series give all of the amenities of the inboard diesel models with the flexibility of outboard power. Here is an opportunity to purchase one of the most sought after walk around in the charter fleet.
The TWM TE289 series stands out from the crowd, from her full Carolina flare bow to the security of a full transom with Armstrong bracket. The open cockpit is a tremendous, uncluttered working space more characteristically found on a commercial working boat. Of course we have the 45 gal live well and fish boxes, and tackle center you would expect in a quality fishing boat. Near waist high gunwales guarantee that nice secure feeling while fighting a monster striper or a Yellow fin. Run that fish around the boat on the unobstructed wide walkways and room to fish three, open bow. The sturdy 1 ¼” T316 SS bow pulpit extends back amidships for additional security. There are no moments of panic leaping to the bow when that brute of a fish wants to take you forward. Equipped with out riggers, rocket launcher, pop up cleats, and 16 rod holders, there is no doubting the fishy pedigree of this boat.
This boat has ample space to fish a 6 pack on a fluke drift or diamond jigging the rips. The twin 225 hp Optimaxes will deliver 40 plus knots to get you out there fast, 218 gallons of fuel will let you fish all day long and back again the next day. Designed for the notorious Carolina rips and inlets, the extreme flare bow keeps you dry and safe in the inshore chop or the snotty offshore swell. This boat has a dream like soft ride that makes you appreciate the century of offshore experience that went into this classic easy driven design. The TWM TE 289 is a true walk around with a comfortable cabin with generous vee berths and ample below decks storage.
As with most things, the very same attributes that make this a classic fishing boat will also lend themselves to making a very nice family cruiser, beach boat, cheese and wine picnic boat with a lot of style and flare. Easily beached and an open cockpit for launching any manner of water sports, it would be hard to find a better boat to ferry the family and friends to the local sand hole for a day of sun and good times.
Needless to say, I personally have a lot of respect for these True World Marine boats. They are solid hand laid fiberglass hulls with a cored one piece deck. The workmanship is superior on a rugged no nonsense interior. The gelcoat is well done, the stringers are properly bonded, and the decks are nice and solid. These boats will last forever and look great nearly as long. This is a fast, functional, and classy boat.
