Default 2012 OBX Boatworks 326/36 Express - SeaKeeper 5 - FIRST $125K Takes It!!!

!! JUST IN ON TRADE !!

!! FORMER SEAKEEPER DEMO BOAT !!


Just in on trade, this 2012 OBX Boatworks 326 Express is a very unique and special fishing machine. The hull is cold molded and was the last one built by Billy Dupree of Outerbanks Boatworks, and finished by OBX. This boat was then used by OBX to create the molds for the OBX 36 XP model going forward. SeaKeeper purchased this boat in May 2014 to use as their demo for the boat show and tournament circuit in 2014/2015. The new diesel Kohler generator was installed along with an SK5 gyro stabilizer, reducing roll by 91% in 5ft waves even with the tower!!

Features & Upgrades Include:

  • SEAKEEPER 5 Gyro Stabilizer!!!
  • Upgraded Kohler 6 kW Diesel Generator
  • Raymarine HybridTouch 12" MFD (Helm) & 7" (Tower)
  • Raymarine 72 Mile 4kW Open Array Radar
  • Raymarine Autopilot
  • Fusion IP-600 Radio, 4 Speakers (Helm Deck), 2 Speakers & Remote (Cockpit)
  • Teak Package (Cockpit, Helm Deck, Covering Boards, Trim)
  • Helm Deck AC/Heat
  • Bow Thruster
  • Recessed Teaser Reals
  • Double Spreader Riggers
  • Much, Much More!!!

Don't miss out on your opportunity to own this very special fishing machine with a SEAKEEPER Gyro for FAR less than replacement cost. Contact us TODAY for more information or to arrange a showing!

Sorry I thought I had hours posted, they are right about 1250. Fuel capacity is 300 gallons in 2 tanks. We do not have a current survey report but did have the boat looked over by a surveyor. The boat is good structurally and mechanically, we had a few things replaced like the forward bilge pumps and shower sump. There are some cosmetic things to take care of on the topsides paint.

The engines don't need to be repowered, but we're selling the boat at a price assuming a buyer would want to repower. In my opinion the boat could benefit from an extra 100 or more horsepower. Current cruise is in the 22-23 knot range at 43-4400 rpms with the weight of the tower, seakeeper, teak decks, etc.

This is by far the coolest sub $150K boat on the market right now. I'd love to see what it would do with new 350 Zukes or Verados.

Yep, somebody is getting a steal. Even without the Seakeeper you'd still be getting a hell of a boat for under 150K!

My guess with the extra 100 horses this boat should be able to run in the +/- 26 knot range at 43-4400 rpms.

Thanks Doug! This really is a fantastic deal considering the 07 currently on the market is listed at $275K with no Seakeeper and a bare cabin!

Default Trips

Would the bracket/boat handle trips?

Realistically this is a Yamaha 350 boat or Suzuki 350 boat so you have the displacement to turn a big prop. But would need to check with builder on the Armstrong and its specs.

However - it's Mercury rigged and now you can get the extended Warranty on the 400R. So that is a viable option that would probably make her a 28-30 knot express which is plenty.

She may not have the right COG with an extra 550-600lbs on the back and 3 props in the water or the weight of the Yamaha/Suzuki option with Suzuki being the lighter option.

We had a buyer previously that planned to take it back to the factory for some custom work and repower with either F350's, or replace the bracket and go with trip F300's. I believe the factory will do them new with trips now, but I'm not sure if the COG would be affected much on this boat. She sits really nice in the water right now, and if anything maybe a little stern light.

All that said, I would still say twin 400R's would be ideal with 200 extra horses and sticking with the current Mercury rigging.

Factory advised trips would not be possible without re- doing the bracket. Twins of any other manufacturers would be fine. Rigging cost of switching to another brand, especially with tower controls would make it more cost efficient to stay with mercs.
