Default 1982 23ft SeaCraft Sceptre For Sale

The boat is a 1982 SeaCraft Sceptre. The transom was redone in 2001. It originally had a sheet of ¾ ply and a sheet of 5/8 ply, I went back with less wood (3/4 and ½ marine fur) and made up the difference with glass, 15 gal of Vinelester resin was used in the transom project. When the transom was complete, I sprayed the boat with Allcraft 2000 fighting lady yellow. I replaced the rub rail, vents, “SeaCraft” emblem, and stripes. I had to have the stripes custom made because no one has 1½” tape anymore. I also installed the 12x12 DF Bennett trim tabs and rewired the whole boat. All fuel hoses has been replaced (fill, vent, and engine). The 144 gal fuel tank is in good shape as well. In 2004 I installed the custom made A&J Marine bracket and Sea Star Hydraulic steering, and recored the bulk head that the steering helm mounts to. The boat has dual batteries, that were replaced in June 2006, also has a 3 curtain enclosure and a cockpit cover (not pictured).
A Garmin 162 GPS with blue chart, Garmin 240 Blue fish finder, and Apelco VHF radio is included with boat.

The engine is a 1997 200 Yamaha that I purchased new in 1998. The engine has been meticulously maintained and is in excellent condition, at this time it has 680 hrs on it. I replaced the water pump and thermostats last year.

The trailer is an older Aluminum Loadmaster. I rebuilt the trailer in 2003. The trailer now has stainless U bolts and bolts. The springs, tires, equalization bar, and hardware were replaced.
I’m asking $15,500. I can be reached at 228-990-7415
Thanks, Steve

I have fished offshore in this boat before. Its very solid and a great riding boat.
Somebody will get a good boat here without spending a fortune.

I too have been on this rig and I am also very impressed with the ride etc. Steve really knows these Seacrafts and is an excellent craftsmen. Again this is a great buy on arguably the best 23'er ever.
