Powered by twin yamaha four stroke 150's. Engines have only 358 hours on them and have been professionally maintained yearly. This big 27' center console holds 180 gallons of fuel, 15 gallons of fresh water and has a 10 gallon holding tank for waste. Plenty of tackle storage and rod storage. The head has a vacuflush toilet and fresh water sink that doubles as a shower. All electronics were replaced in 2009 and the software was updated in 2010. The state of the art electronics system consists of two Garmin 4212 12" Chartplotters, Garmin GSD22 sonar module with new Airmar transducer, Garmin XM satellite weather module with XM audio, Garmin GMR18 High Definition radar dome, Garmin network hub, Standard Horizon VHF with 8 foot black custom offshore antenna, 8 foot black offshore AM/FM antenna. This particular boat has fished the waters of Montauk in the summer and Key West in the Winter. She has been equipped with a custom eisenglass windshield enclosure, Taco grand slam 15' outriggers (double rigged), port and starboard electric outlets for electric kite reels or downriggers. In 2010 custom gunwale rod holders were installed for trolling. You will find 5 stainless rod holders in each gunwale giving you the option to have a huge spread behind the boat when trolling. This boat is turn Key ready to go. Her big Carolina flared hull will get you to the fishing grounds comfortably and safely. Coupled with a state of the art electronics system and tournament rigged fishing equipment there should be no excuse why you can't catch fish.

I do have a trailer. it was purchased last year and only used once. It is a venture tandem axel, mag wheels, brakes, and diamond plate fenders. It's a great looking trailer. The holes in the head are for rod storage. You can fit big stand up rods in there. The boat has a ton of storage.

Thanks! The benefit to the Yamaha Four Stroke 150's is great fuel economy. I make the run from Cape Coral to Key West which is a little over 100 miles, cruising at 28-30 knots in calm seas, she'll burn a quarter of a tank.

Awesome fuel burn numbers for a big boat. I love my KeyWest and want to move up, but a little pricey for my blood. Good looking rig however. Here are the Yamaha performance numbers..50 mph wot with the 150's..
