2012 C-Hawk 26 (28.5ft) Center Console. The boat is much larger than other manufactures similarly sized center consoles. She is a full 26 ft hull, with a Stainless Marine twin bracket, making the boat 28.5 feet LOA, not including the front anchor pulpit. She has an 8ft 6in beam. I bought it directly from C-Hawk, and worked very closely with them adding many additional features. From the placement of the fishboxes, larger fuel capacity to the custom multi-color LED lights. She has a large livewell in the leaning post, custom T-top with electronics box and rocket launchers, fresh and raw water wash down, full bow rail, bolsters and front cushions, porta potty in the helm console and a transom sink/shower. Every extra available feature was added to this boat.
I fish regularly 30-60 miles offshore out of Manasquan, NJ. The boat is set up to fish and includes 23 rod holders, 5-Sided canvas enclosure, oversized transom fishbox, windlass anchor
Electronics: Lowrance HDS-7, Standard Horizon Class D AIS system. The stereo is fantastic. Previously had Lowrance which is being removed. Fusion stereo w/ IPOD docking station, 2 MBQuarts Amplifiers reference series amplifiers and 8 MBQuarts speakers with 2-10 inch subwoofers.
She is powered by twin 2012 200HP E-Tecs (335 Hours) with B.E.S.T. extended transferable warranties until the end of November 2016. There are 3 I-con gauges and the motors are linked to the Lowrance displays as well. She cruises at 28-32 kts and tops out at 43 knots. I had it propped with one size large props it did 50 knots. The E-tecs are very efficient. At 25 knots, I burn 13 gallons per hour loaded with 5 guys, 180 gallons of fuel, fresh water (30 gallons), 15-20 Rods, and a ton of tuna tackle. At 30 knots she burns less than 20 gallons per hour. It has good range and you can cruise at 25 knots while getting 2 miles per gallon. For a 100 mile trip, seas around 3 ft, the boats will burn around 45 gallons out/back or 90 gallons round trip plus trolling. So, with 180 gallons of fuel it has enough range for a trip like the above.
The boat has been lift kept at my home since new, is not bottom painted, and is dry stored during the cold months. I have maintained it meticulously since new. I replaced both water pumps, thermostats and had the drives serviced before this season. I just had the spark plugs replaced 10 hours ago. I am happy to set up a sea trial for the buyer and please view the links below to see the engines running.
There is only one livewell and it is in the leaning post. It is 45 gallons. The pump is a Jabsco FLOJET. There is 15 gallons of fresh water. There are three fishboxes. Two in the front and a transom kill box. The transom kill box is around 5 ft long and roughly 16 inches deep. The front fishboxes will fit three 60 lbs tunas in each box.
I have now purchased a larger center console, that is the reason I am selling it. This boat is turn-key. Paid $120K steal at $49,500!!
