33' Lifetimer 33 Cabin
Rare Opportunity: 2005 Lifetimer 3250 This is a must-see 2005 Lifetimer 3250, an ALL-WEATHER coastal cruiser and fishing boat built by Lifetimer Boats in Duncan, BC, which is famous for its designs, rough water durability, and LIFETIME hull warranty. Power is provided by a Volvo D6 310 with Duoprop. The leg was rebuilt in 2012 and the boat has had relatively few hours put on it since then. This vessel is totally loaded with navigation aids, hydraulic captain helm seat, diesel furnace, salt-water wash down, stand-up head, generator, crane for dinghy lift, 4.5 cubic foot refrigerator, galley, and so much more. It comes with a triple-axle trailer.
This boat does it all. With two 120 gal. (U.S.) tanks, a cruise fuel burn of 12.5 gal./hr., and a cruise speed of 23 kts., you've got 18 hours and 420 nautical miles of fun in front of you, and that's with an hour reserve. You can fill up in Friday Harbor and make it almost to Shearwater. Two Scotty electric downriggers, high sides, a wide beam, and a huge swim platform make this an almost ideal fishing platform. There is even an A/C outlet on the fishing deck so you can plug in the available chest freezer. And let me tell you, when you are hauling in Chinook and Coho in River's Inlet, that chest freezer is handy. Fishing is a breeze on this boat. Haul the fish in, clean it while your buddy re-baits the hook, rinse it off, and put it in the freezer. To make it even easier on yourself later, get a vacuum sealer and slice the fish into meal-sized portions before putting it in the freezer. This is a fishing machine.
But this boat is more than just a fishing vessel. This is a cruiser that will get you to your destination before night falls, in time to crack open a few cold ones and make a great meal in the galley. Use the combo alcohol/electric stove, or swap out the fish cleaning board for the Magnum grill out back. Get yourself a good chef's knife and a rice cooker, and you will be the envy of the anchorage as you make gourmet meals for you and your guests.
Speaking of guests, this is a great boat for families or the buddy fishing trip. The berth in the bow is very roomy, large enough for two adults and a kid (two if they're little). The dinette converts to a berth as well, and will sleep two cozy adults. The fully enclosed head has a salt-water flush toilet and the sink faucet doubles as a freshwater showerhead. You and your guests can stay out for as long as the food and drink hold out. Know what else is nice? There is also an A/C outlet in the bow, and a two-port USB charging outlet at the helm station.
This boat has been from Puget Sound all the way to Ketchikan, Alaska. It handles the seas and the weather very well. It is ready to take you up River's Inlet, or off the west coast of Vancouver Island to the albacore tuna grounds. In this boat, you can do it. Comfortably.
