The vessel is impeccably maintained and has meticulous logbook for ALL maintenence. The vessel has fished on /off for 5 years, although you would never know it. Before that ( for 15years) it was a picnic boat ( hardly used), with not a stich of fishing gear. There are two or so known on West Coast. This is an Eldridge Mcginnis Hull design that is extremely seaworthy and proven to be one of the most seaworthy in its class. It has superb lines and weight to power would make a fine economical family cruiser or hardcore longrange (450 mile ) fish machine. Similar hull to Albermarle or Albin . cruise 20kts, topend, 24kts. Everything works well !

This boat is hard to beat in chop, fuel economy, speed and abilities in confused seas. She is a tough cookie.

Another Big plus to this vessel is that you can easily change filters and engine zincs,wash turbo or freshwater flush ( which I do daily) right from the deck , there is room everywhere to work.

Also included is a 2005 King Boat trailer triple axle, refitted to haul above vessel, 10,000lbs carry cap.,13k gross, mint shape , spare hub/wheel and tire, stainless brakes, surge, etc. been in water 10 times. Nice trailer. Available separately after boat sells.
