Default Dolphin "22 Bull Dolphin" Center Console For Sale - F300 - $30k

I am reluctantly posting the 22 Bull Dolphin for sale and wanted to give THT first shot since that's where I found her. I bought her from ErikG who bought her from Reggie76. I'm firm at $30k and if she doesn't sell here with an easy transaction I will be taking her to a broker to handle it since I am out of the country. Boat is in Fort Myers, FL

For those who may not be familiar with Dolphin Boats, this is a 22ft with bracket (23' 8" LOA), 3 piece construction and 24 degree deadrise. The spec sheet for these boats is here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ftnmmvrgo...ll_dolphin.pdf

I have been slowly working on improving some things since I purchased her about a year ago, expecting to bring her to Exuma with us but it just isn't the right boat for what we want over here. I'm not excited to sell her but I also don't want to leave her sitting around.

Hull is a 2002 and the Yamaha F300 is 2011, warranty to November 2017. Approx 650 hours with 0 hours from 100 hour service.

Garmin 741 (Traditional sonar + chartplotter)
Garmin Striker 7sv (Side & Down scan + Chirp)
Garmin Autopilot
Yamaha Command Link Plus
ICOM VHF
All new speakers including sub + MB Quart head unit.
JBL Amp
Onboard charger
Taco outriggers
Fresh & Raw water systems
2 SS props - Yamaha 3 blade and PowerTech OFX4 which is on there now.
Full custom cover & leaning post cover
Trim tabs
jack plate
New anchor SS Chain and 300ft of 1/2" line (never even splashed)

2007 Ranger trailer with all new 10-year sealed hubs, tires are good, new jack. Bunk hangers are a little rusty. I have aluminum replacements for them but didn't get to it yet.

I re-did some cushions a couple months ago and they've been out once since then. I went with all white vs the green piping because green didn't match the boat anyway. I did the leaning post seat, the back, the cooler seat and seat back that snaps on the front of the console. The others are in good enough shape and since we never use them I didn't want to re-do them until they needed it. The others are bow cushions plus a seat across the transom and removable back for that seat.

Top end is 53 or so. I don't recall exactly but want to say 30mph cruise is around 3.5 mpg with the 4 blade. 3 blade would do up to 3.7 to 3.8mpg depending on load.

I have another 50 some pictures here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ftnmmvrgo...HI1dEOO2a?dl=0

@Big Bite - Almost only works in horse shoes and hand grenades.

That is an awesome boat and there is an awesome price I think. Why aren't you using in the Bahamas? Seems like a perfect boat for the Exuma's

Crazybeard, it's sad to see you leaving the dolphin gang. At that price I cant see this boat lasting long. Hell, the motor alone is almost worth 30k. Hell of a boat an priced to sell. Good luck!

@22 Bull Dolphin

Thanks! I know I won't be able to replace her for anything similar at this price.

Thanks!

It's not that the boat isn't right for the waters here. it's that our environment isn't conducive to it. We aren't on the water and I don't want to store her somewhere in the water. I don't want to bottom paint her to begin with. And I for sure don't want to trailer something this size regularly here, which I learned by trailing the little Dolphin around here. Plus the only real convenient ramp around has a low bridge and the t-top wouldn't fit under.

If we owned somewhere that we had a nearby ramp without the height restriction or on the water I'd definitely want her here. Likely a perfect boat for the size especially with bracket and jack plate.

A boat like that would be the perfect boat for the Exhumas, but every one down there is sold on a twin Vee

Yeah, it would be perfect for down here if we had a good place to keep her. Unfortunately the low bridge from the ramp is a non-starter with the T-top.

Yea pretty good activity. I've had 4 offers this week but I'm firm on the price just waiting on someone who knows what these boats are and understands the value here.
