This is a working commercial fishing vessel currently pulling Stone Crab pots on the West coast of Florida.

She is powered by a 420 hp single Cummins C series turbo charged engine. Max speed is 23kts. and she cruises at 14kts.

She is outfitted with a hydraulic Trap puller.

The boat has an insulated fish box below deck which can hold 2,000 lbs.

This can easily be converted to a freezer. 

The boat also has a reinforced fiberglass top with a railing suitable for storing traps and gear.


Electronics include Furuno Auto pilot and  FCU 585 sounder, a Gamin 2010c GPS, Unden Solara VHF, an iPOD adaptable CD/AM/FM Stereo and a searchlight.


The boat was re wired one year ago.

This is a working boat which is ready to fish.

Jan 2015 update - Trap puller winch was relocated to the stern of the vessel and the roof has been cut back. This is a working stone crab boat and the operator reports greater efficiency with this new setup.

She is not for sale to a Bahamian or resident of the Bahamas without the payment of Bahamas import duty which is 10% or imported under the fisheries act.  VAT must also be paid.
