This is a 1976 Skip Jack cabin cruiser that I started to restore three years ago and then ended up dropping the project. It has an 18° dead rise and rides like a dream and all but the worst sea states It sits on a pacific 10,000 pound dual axle galvanized trailer that could use new springs and a little love but it’s generally in good shape and has four new load range, E tires. The trailer has notched bunks for hoist launch and galvanize side rails with ladder for ramp launch. The boat has been sanded, prepped and primed with two coats of Seahawk epoxy primer, which has powdered due to UV exposure.. The cockpit was not painted, but a good deal of grind and epoxy fill was performed on spider cracks in the gelcoat. The engine is a Volvo penta 350 V8 with 600 hours and brand new heads. It is fresh water cooled with heat exchanger, and with a unique aftermarket flushing system (not the bunny ears). It runs like a Swiss watch. The outdrive is a Volvo penta 290 dual prop which has been gone through, shafts, removed, re-metallized, and re-machined. All new seals were installed and the props only have about 20 hours on them. It has the original skipjack 110 gallon, heavy duty aluminum fuel tank, which is in good condition. It has hydraulic trim tabs that work well, as well as hydraulic outdrive trim, which also works well. it has a fully enclosed head, sparkling, clean 10 gallon holding tank, a macerator pump, and you can either pump to the holding tank or overboard. it also comes with two brand new ($1000, not installed)tinted opening side windows with screens, to replace existing, a brand new, stainless steering wheel with suicide knob. It has an ICOM VHF, radio with GPS and a stereo in a waterproof housing. It has a small galley with on demand pressure water sink, a Norco, 12 volt/110 refrigerator that works well dinette that converts to a double bunk, and a V birth, that sleeps two. It has two igloo ice chest that fit in built-in chocks against the bulkhead and serve as wonderful foot rests for both driver and passenger, plus they make it possible to spend extended periods out of the islands! it has a very nice Lewmar, pro fish, winless, two anchors, and a small anchor locker. it has a nice teak swim step that sits on Stainless Steel Brackets with a pull out stainless swim ladder attached to the bottom. It has a bait pump, and a large poly propylene bait tank that attaches to the swim step. It also has a brand new, heavy duty wiper motor and stainless steel articulating arm for the windshield which is needed because when it is snotty, the windshield gets quite wet. It is not a walk around, but can fish three easily in the cockpit.
WHAT IT NEEDS : paint, the primer will need to be sanded, re-primed, and the boat finish painted excluding the cockpit. I have done some rewiring to make the electrical more accessible but someone with 12 V wiring skills will need to sort it all out. It has built-in battery trays for two banks of two batteries each. There is one new battery in the engine compartment that was purchased two years ago and needs recharging. The railings are off, the swim step is off, and the gelcoat in the cockpit can use more grinding and filling after which the combing can be painted . I can supply receipts for all for the work mentioned and for right guy who is handy and capable, a couple of months work will turn this Incredible Boat into the island camper/fish, slayer, that it was for me and will give you years of wonderful experiences offshore! thank you for taking the time to read my mini boat novel.$5000 OBO
