Comments

Meticulous care in the build of this special boat shows in many details: solid (no core) fiberglass hull and deck, all interior wood joiner work (save the teak and holly floors) is finished in white gel coat, all interior exposed glass work has been gel coated, all systems are easily accessed for service, all drain holes have been fitted with brass piping, the list goes on..... This is a no-nonsense fishing boat of substance, reliable and economical to operate,and easy to maintain. There are not many single diesel engine fishing boats in this size class; this one deserves a close inspection by anyone shopping for one.
