Default Correct Craft Fish Nautique Inboard Center Console for Sale

Up for sale is a 1988 Correct Craft Fish Nautique center console direct drive inboard boat. The boat is 24'6" long and has a beam of approximately 8 feet. This boat is in like new condition. Absolutely everything on the boat works perfectly! It is powered by a 2003 Mercruiser 350 MAG MPI 5.7 litre Horizon fresh water cooled engine with a ZF transmission. As of August 2011, I just replaced the oil pan, both dipsticks, main oil pan bolt, replaced the splash guard, replaced the ring gear, starter, spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap and rotor, changed the oil, oil filter, and fuel filter. I had the engine pulled to complete this work and while the motor was out, the bilge was completely repainted. It has a fresh water and salt water washdown with a 30 gallon fresh water tank, all digital display and diagnostics, Clarion CMD4 radion with 4 new WET SOUNDS speakers, VHF radio, spreader lights, teak swim platform, removable tuna tower, and much more. The boat shines like new and was just polished a month ago. Since I have owned the boat, it has always been stored on a trailer and undercover. It is very economical on fuel and will cruise around 28 MPH burning about 8 gallons per hour and holds 85 gallons. Top end is around 42 - 43 MPH. It also include a ZF yacht drive controller which has electronic shift and throttle meaning you never have to deal with stiff shift cables. I hate to sell the boat but I am upgrading to a bigger boat and cant afford to keep both. It includes a Float on trailer with a new 3000 pound jack stand and winch. I am a professional captain and have maintained the boat to the highest standard. Please give me a call for more information as there is just too much to include in this posting. Adam 423-605-3766 or reply to the ad. Thanks for looking. $17500

Nice rig. What is the fuel burn at cruising speed? How many hours on the engine?

Naw--it's more like flying a airplane.

Love Correct Craft. If I ever decide to go a tad smaller--That is exactly what I would want.

Good luck with the sale. Someone will be happy.

Great looking boat, and I've never seen that model before. Kudo's to Correctcraft for having the foresight to have a big bow flare, a broken shear line, a deep vee hull and trim tabs. Those are not things that a skiboat company would necessarily know.

Fabulous looking boat.

I have fished on that model many times, great platform. The boat I fished on wasn't nearly as nice or clean, but it killed a lot of fish! The engine was super easy to work on with the hinged console, is that how you access the engine on your's?

1000 hours, fuel burn is 8-10 gph depending on how the boat is loaded.
