Looking for $7500. I’m open to offers only after you’ve physically inspected the boat, but for this price this is really an amazing boat. I’m a USCG licensed master captain and I’ve kept this boat up to safety standards. I can tell you from experience it is much much easier to pay a little more for a nicer boat that to get a “deal” on something that needs a lot of work.
Thanks for considering my boat and please email me through this site (include your phone number) if you are interested (too many scammers to leave my number). If this ad is still up then the boat is still available.
