Engine hours are indicated on Hobbs meters in current working condition, and the indicated hours are believed to be accurate. They are obviously low hours for the age of the boat, but the operating history of the boat as explained by its sole owner is supportive.

The generator is in a sound shield and is a newer Northern Lights. Up until recently the boat has been boat house kept.

The performance details are not verified. All listing details are as best efforts and not warranted to be accurate as there is incomplete information available about the boat. It will be up to the buyer and surveyor to verify information in regards to this offering.

Construction

Construction GRP
Underwater profile Semi-Displacement
Finish Gelcoat finish

For this specific customer-ordered boat the builder added approximately 3' to the waterline but kept the original 14' beam. This additional waterline length increased the speed at which it moves through the water. I actually measured the waterline and determined it to be 43' 8" and the length over all to be 47' 5".

The water and fuel tanks appear to be aluminum. There are receipts for a considerable amount of work including newer alternators, zincs, bottom paint, and Garmin Radar, Chart Plotter and Torrid MV 17 water heater. This work was completed on 6-2020.

Waterline Boats / Boatshed does not independently verify capacities and measures, which are reported from seller-provided information and/or literature.

Broker's Comments

VIRTUAL TOUR - VIDEO - 80 TO 100 PHOTOS - FULL SPECS CAN BE VIEWED OF THIS VESSEL!
For those of us who like the combination of a heavy displacement hull and the speed of a truly semi displacement hull that cruises easily at 14 Knots then give this boat serious consideration. I have had personal experience operating this vessel and can tell you that it as comfortable at 8 knots as it is at 17 knots. When looking at the interior photos pay particular attention to the quality and craftmanship of the wooden components.

This boat was custom-designed and built for the current owner and was boat house-kept for the majority of its life. To me a remarkable feature is that the hull is reported to be an extended Vietnam River Patrol Boat that Uniflight built for the US Navy.

A unique and sturdy boat.
