Default 2006 2300cc Polar- SOLD!

For sale is a 2006 Polar Center Console. I purchased the boat, motors and trailer new in 2006, so i am the original owner. I had the boat waxed and detailed this past weekend so it is ready to go to a new home. Below is a list of features that the boat comes with.

MOTORS:
2006 Yamaha 115 4stks(565hrs)
no warranty left
I am having a computer diagnosis done this week which will provide actual hours at certain RPM's,compression tests and a complete go thru.

TRAILER:
2006 Majic Tilt tandem axle aluminum trailer

new hubs, rotors and bearings

I am asking $30,000 obo for the boat, motors and trailer. If you have any questions, you can call me at (904)338-7354. The boat is in St-Augustine,Fl. Thanks-Ryan
Oh yeah, my wife is not included
I will also add that the only thing this boat needs is the front cushion re-upholstered and there is about a 2'' long area where the seam needs to be sown back. This is not one of the "problem polars".

*At cruise 4200-4400 rpms, I see 32-34mph and get close to 3mpg. That is with 1/2 tank of fuel (75gal) and 3-4 people on board.

*WOT with the same load I see 44-45mph and get 2+mpg.

*Fully loaded (150gal fuel, 4 guys, 150lbs ice, gear, etc) I get 42mph.

*This is a very efficient boat to have twin engines plus you have the reliability of both the engines on the back.

I too have a pair of F115's and will agree they are very efficient motors. Not real powerhouses on my hull, but I would expect your cruise numbers to be greater than 3 mpg.

To be honest with you, the Polar brand has some stigma concerning stress cracks. If your boat has none, I would make that statement in your ad....

Good luck with a fine looking rig. I think you might be around 2k - 3k too high...

Triumphrick, i will agree that these motors are really efficient and the numbers i posted are being very conservative. I do not have fuel flow meters/gauges so i didn't want to "overrate" the fuel burn if you know what i mean.

With any brand boat and this one being 5 years old, it has a couple gel cracks but none like other polars have had due to their Stigma. I have seen other boats prior to 2006 and they were all over the boat.

I am asking $32,000 which is the cheapest 23 polar in this shape with equipment. I am also excepting offers so if anyone is interested, please make an offer. I promiss you will not offend me. The worst i can say is no thanks

Thanks for all the feedback so far. Keep it coming!

We have a 2008 with 2004 F-115's and 3.5 to 4 mpg is not uncommon. Great boat. We can leave the ICW at Lockwood Folly, fish the tower and back, 8 plus hours and burn 35-40 gallons.

You are probable right about seeing the 3.5mpg at cruise. Common guys, this is a very efficient offshore boat with barely any hard running hours. Someone make an offer

Thanks MTC.
I have enjoyed this boat.
I guess the Polar name has people scared. It's a shame that they had a few bad years and the name is branded as a POS.
If it doesn't sell, no biggie.
