General Details

Whether you're looking for a turnkey charter boat ready for business, or a fantastic offshore dive/fish boat at an incredible price, this is your chance! 

This 42’ Dorado Custom Open Express with a beam of 12’8” provides a stable, very open platform for diving. Forward berth will sleep two comfortably and houses a head.  Dive benches are equipped to hold 28 tanks with gear storage underneath the bench.  The Marlin Tower provides plenty of shade and houses the helm; allowing more room on the main deck. Low gunnels on the stern allow for roll entry, or divers can use the removable transom door to giant stride off the dive platform. The custom-built dive platform has two ladders for easy boarding.

The engines provide a reliable, smooth, quiet and comfortable ride to your diving destination. That’s because of the combined strength of the twin Caterpillar 3208 TA’s (Turbo charged after cooled) with 900 horsepower.

Ultra Jet 305s are derived from the Ultra and Dowty jet drive range used in military and commercial applications for nearly 40 years. They provide superior maneuverability, excellent acceleration, easy handling, low noise level and a cruising speed of 22 knots with the Cat power.

Owner will consider trade of a flats, center console, or pilot house vessel.

*Boat will get around 2 MPG at 22 Knts
