Lets Go Fishing!

Price Reduced Again -- Owner Wants It Sold -- Bring Offers!

Re-powered with 2x Caterpillar 3208 diesels! More than 26k worth of work in new manifolds, risers, exhaust, packing, 4 blade props, shafts, cutlass bearings and alignments. Seller has also installed new vacu-flush toilet and plumbing.

The 33 Flybridge Sportfisher was one of Penn Yan's bigger models and is perfect as both a weekender and a longer range sport fisher under 40ft in length. This baby has won Marlin Tournaments and the owner, being a Caterpillar mechanic, dropped two CAT 3208 diesel motors in her to make her rip!  Cruising speed is reported to be 15 knots at about 1500 RPM and will do 25 Knots per hour top speed at 2800 RPM and fuel economy is spectacular at cruising speed with a reported 1 MPG while running both motors! 

The seller tells me that he has made it to turtle bay in one go.

Penn Yan was founded in 1921 by German-native Charles A. Herrman, Penn Yan boat company was famous for their fiberglass and wooden boat construction. These boats have beautiful lines, and the stepped planking of the fiberglass hull is particularly beautiful along the waterline. Among other innovations, Penn Yan was known for its patented "Tunnel Drive" concept, whereby a cavity was molded into the bottom of the boat's hull, partially enclosing the propeller and drive shaft.The tunnel drive system provided better boat speed and stability.

This convertible boasts 280 gallons of fuel in 4 Aluminum tanks, a redundant GPS, Radar, Downriggers, Outriggers, a 4 scoop bait tank plumbed for fresh or salt water, Polaris radio direction finder, Autopilot and much more.

Cosmetically, this fishing machine could use a little TLC, but the value is where it counts...In the motors and sport fishing set up.  The deck is large and set up for serious fishing and inside is a fold out leather couch, leather chair, and a walk down galley with 2 burner alcohol / electric stove, double stainless sink, and DC fridge.

The V berth is an offset double with plenty of room, and the head has the new vacu-flush and a stand alone standing shower.

This Penn Yan would make a great charter boat or even a good fishing weekender.

Extra pumps, tools, etc...

Raymarine C90 Multi Function Plotter

Raymarine Autopilot

Raymarine Digital Radar

Polaris Radio Direction Finder

Large Fish Bag
