General Details

 JUST LISTED!! Here's a big, solid, seaworthy sportfisher in nice clean condition for under $160k! She was repainted with linear polyurethane epoxy (LP) in 2011 from the hull up and looks terrific. She was a great looking boat in her day, and this timeless classic will still turn heads today. Her huge cockpit is well appointed for the serious angler. She feels more like a 48 or 50 footer, thanks to her 16' beam. She also sports a low profile (rebuilt) bower davit with 13' hard bottom commercial grade center console dinghy and new (2012) Honda 40hp 4-stroke outboard.

The master stateroom was modified from her original twin berths, to a spacious queen berth. There is a private head with shower and "Vacu-flush" toilet.
Additional upgrades include a new 12.5KW genset, two-station Glendinning electronic engine controls, new (2012) bimini with full eisenglass enclosure on flybridge, newer GPS plotter, plus other electronics upgraded in recent years. She is amazingly clean and well kept for her age, everywhere you look. 

Her 8V71TA Detroit Diesels have 3,100 hours and have just been serviced are maintained by reputable Detroit diesel mechanic (has had major overhaul), these hours are mostly from low trolling speeds. They start right up with minimal smoke, and are likely to pass an engine survey quite well. This is a lot of boat for the Mid $150's.
