This exceptionally clean 2005 28’ True World Marine sportsfishing boat is a pleasure to handle. Whether you want to go out by yourself, with family, friends or as a charter captain, you will surely appreciate the ride and the fuel efficient Yanmar 315 Turbo Diesel coupled to an Aquadrive jack shaft and a Mercruiser Brave 3X dual prop stern drive. The tower helm adds greatly to the view of the water. This boat functions well whether you go inshore or offshore. A Fastload Tri-Axle trailer comes with the boat.

This is a one owner very low hour boat with integrated networks between the helm and tower stations. The ‘Reel Deal’ was kept in a covered sling for virtually its entire time in Texas. Operationally and electronically this boat is loaded with multiple features.

For fishing or maneuvering in shallow water the stern drive can be raised to reduce the draft to only 22".

Vessel Walkthrough

From the spacious deck you go around the leaning post/engine box to the helm area. With another step you can go down into the cabin which has a standup head, small galley and a table. The table can be lowered to make a sleeping area for two. From the helm you go to the very wide walkaround decks to the bow.

From the engine box you access the ladder to the tower that is another complete helm station.
