This boat is ready to use and has been meticulously maintained by me for 13 years. The kids are all grown up and we are moving on. This boat is well appointed for it's category (32 foot), is easy to handle and dependable. All cash offers will be considered. Size is 35 x 10-8, 9000 lbs.

It is powered by twin Mercruiser 260hp 350cid Gas engines with V-Drives.
All maintenance is up to date.
A separate list of features is available by email but I will list some highlights.
The twelve volt system has 4 batteries and can be charged from 3 sources. It holds 200 gallons of fuel, 45 gallons of water, and 15 gallons of waste. We could stay off shore for days without returning for water, fuel or pump out. Everything we needed could be run from the 12 volt system and water heating and battery charging can be done by running the engines. It has 2 high capacity bilge pumps, 2 high volume blowers, and built in fire suppression. The cabin has sleeping areas for 6 adults. There is a full camper canvas to extend living area and privacy curtains for everything. Top speed under a light load is 37 mph but lower under a heavy load. Comfortable cruise is around 24 mph and yields around 1.5 mpg with a minimum of engine noise. The boat has been stored in heated storage all but this year so I could keep it close to home for quick access. Some safety gear is included. Stands not included. It has a Wisconsin title (clear, No liens) and registration is up for renewal this year. Insurance has always been under $400- annually. Email for a more detailed equipment list. Located in Fond du Lac.
