This 1985 Phoenix 27 Fishbuster, located in Shelton, CT is powered by twin 5.7L 270 hp freshwater-cooled Crusader inboards with new risers, elbows & manifolds. The Velvet drives were overhauled in 2007 and prop pockets minimize the draft. 

This is an exceptional boat for cruising or fishing, renowned for her great ride and the ability to handle seas that will send other boats of all sizes running for home. You can confidently forge ahead protected from the elements in the comfort of a full enclosure, cabin, a "bulletproof" hull, 540 horsepower, and 270 gallons of fuel. 

The "Fishbuster" name comes from the sea handling and great fishing setup. The "galley" is located opposite and forward of the helm. In "fishing mode" this serves as a deluxe bait station. Four rocket launchers on the T-Top, gunwale rod holders, and gimballed rod holders mounted on the engine boxes make reeling in your catch a breeze. 

Not fishing? No problem. There's plenty of seating aft of the Todd pedestal helm & companion seats. The port & starboard engine boxes are fully cushioned with reversible and removable back rests, so your passengers can look forward, look aft, or take the back rests out and bask in the sun. 

Below, there's a comfy V-Berth with storage below, two hanging lockers, and a spacious head with electric commode and stand-up shower. 

Yard maintained and in excellent condition, she's a real "head-turner" and ready for a new owner who appreciates a properly built, solid boat that can put most newer boats to shame in any conditions.
