Default 34 "Chandeleur" Lafitte Skiff Sale Pending

Due to a baby on the way and work obligations, I am forced to sell our 34 foot Chandeleur Lafitte Skiff. I put this boat together to make extended trips fishing the islands, and to duck hunt in Venice. This boat is 100 % turn key in pristine condition, with a flawless marine survey on file, preformed just last week. The boat is powered by a new Cummins 5.9 6BTA 330 hp diesel engine, and has a 5KW Kohler diesel gen set installed in a hush box. All mechanical and electrical components of the boat are either new or in excellent condition, and include just to name a few; Full Garmin electronics package with chart plotter, radar, radar overlay, sonar and XM satellite weather overlay, New Fusion am/FM Ipod stereo system, new VHF,two new flat screen TV's with DVD, new 12k BTU marine reverse cycle AC and heat, plus many many more. Boat comfortably sleeps 4, has hot fresh water shower, stainless marine grade stove and oven, big Green Egg BBQ pit, and stainless burner outside for frying fish. Also comes with a 14/36 flat boat tender with a new 15 Hp mercury four stroke, which is easily launched from the remote control crane, could easily accommodate a small go devil or surface drive rig. I am a aluminum boat builder by trade, and a licensed commercial captain, I built this boat for me and my family, with every attention to detail and function. There is nothing this boat needs, it is ready to be used and has been used since completing about 4 months ago. If interested, please contact, because I have done way to much to list in this add. I will take $58,000 for the boat without the tender, or $60K for the whole rig, or best offer. Boat is located in Bay St. Louis Ms for viewing. I can be reached a jjust4@gmail.com or Call @ 504- Three-Five-Two- 3142

Sweet rig - you must have enormous radio range with antennas on top of that mast - and the mast could double as a "green stick!"

Is the hull fiberglass or aluminum?

I have wanted that for years to hunt out of at the mouth of the river.

Just can't make it make sense.
You have done a fabulous job man, good luck with the little one coming and this one selling.

Default Thank You

I really apprieciate all the kind words! It really does kill me to have to sell, but at this point in life it just doesn't make sense. I just turned 30, and I have come to the conclusion that it just isn't the right boat for this stage of life. I have put so much time, money, and hard work and years of duck hunting and surf fishing expertise into the design and funtion of this boat.
I tried to upload some interior shots last night but ran into problems, I will try again this evening when I get to my home computer. The interior however is first class! everything completely re done, and the surveyor even noted the " yacht like finish " on the interior in the survey.
As to some of the questions:
The hull is fiberglass, a one off C-Flex boat built in Lafitte La. Everything is rock solid and in perfect shape. From the deck up everything is aluminum, the cabin, pilot house, hard top. The mast and crane are all stainless steel.
Holds 135 gallons of water
385 gallons of fuel
I cruise the boat at 1600 rpms @ 8 mph burning 4 gallons an hour on most trips.
The boat will plain up and run however and will run at 16 mph at about 2600 to 2700 rpms buring 15 gallons an hour on plane.
19 mph at 2900 rpms is the best I've seen, but all of these numbers are loaded with fuel, ice and gear for a 4 day trip.
Generator burns about 5 gallons a day.
We've been making a four day trip from in the back bay of Bay St. Louis Ms, to Chandeluer (North Isle, Redfish point area) and back on about 70 to 80 gallons.
It should do a 3 day hunt from Venice Marina to Main pass and back on about 30 gallons.
Please let me know if there are any other questions, and I will try and get some more photo's up tonight.

Here are a few more photo's. A couple of the int. (Still having trouble to get them to load, will try and take some new ones this evening), a couple of the tackle center and hard top as I was building them, and one from I had our Flats Skiff up top. If there are any photos in particular some one wants to see, just let me know, I have hundreds, as well as many from when I hauled it out to do the bottom job.

She draws 3 feet, and has a stump jumper protecting all the running gear, tying all the way back into the rudder.

You may want to post some pics of her out of the water. It will give some potential buyers an idea of the hull design. Best of luck with the sale. Cool looking boat.

What kind of boat is the white flats boat in the second set of pictures, the one with the poling platform?

The little flats skiff is StumpKnocker. I think they are built somewhere in Florida. I bought it for a few hundred bucks, it was just somebody's little bass pond boat. I gutted it out, built a front casting deck and rod box and built the polling platform. I'm only into that little boat about 1200 dollars, besides the motor, but you wouldn't beleive how that little boat fishes. We do a lot of fly fishing, all sight casting. We sold our Mavrick skiff when I bought the big boat. That little cheap Stumpknocker poles just as easy as the mavrick did, goes shallower, and at 14 feet, nearly rides as good and dry as our 17 Mavrick did. It's been a great little boat.
