Here is my 1986 21' Offshore CC, bought used in 1992 just before Hurricane Andrew, and at that time was already falling apart.

Here is my 1994 24' Offshore Yachts center console. I bought the hull a few years ago and have slowly redone the boat. It has twin 1997 150hp Yamaha's

Here is my 1984 Offshore 22, "Short Bus" or as my wife likes to call it, the 'tard cart.

I realize it was a cheaply built boat, but I have to admit my boat has been thru most of the keys, took us to Bimini, and all around the west coast of Florida and around Pompano Beach. We enjoy it alot, you don't see many other Offshores around.

That black dot is a water tank vent I used for a deck lid drain on the upper deck. Did not want to use a standard thru hull in that location.

The back deck is this winter's project. Going to cut out the back deck, reinforce the stringers, possibly add some in deck storage.

what a great job you've done, you had tons of storage before and now even more. I have practically none.

What are the divots where the speakers use to be?

They are recessed drink holders. We had a cushion made for the upper deck, great place for the boss to lay out.

How do these boats ride? I found one up here in the north east that is pretty rough all rigged for spearfishing and diving. all it says is offshore 218 or 228SS I cant remember. have not been able to find out anything about these boats like the lines though. Any info would be great thanks.

I like my 24', it rides well. It is no Contender or Yellowfin, but for the buck, it does everything we need. I have been in 6 to 7 footers, not enjoyable, but got us in.

Not sure how my 24' compares to the op's 21'

I forget if my deadrise is 22 degrees of 24 degrees in the aft. It is one or the other.

It is tippy and subject to correction when weight is shifted, constant working of the trim tabs unless everyone sits still.

I bought mine knowing it was a project boat.

I'll bet in the 5 years I have had mine, I have only seen 12 to 15 other Offshore's. Maybe 3 identical to mine.

My only regret is when I repowered and had no motors on the transom, I should have removed the deck and done the rework below deck then. It would have been alot easier.

I have NEVER seen another mid 80s Offshore like mine. Knot's boat's shape is different than mine. I've seen less than 10 in my life having the same logo as Knot's.

If the price is super right (IE paying for motor only and any other accessories) then you have a project boat.

I would love to see more of these fixed up, but considering the expense to replace transom , stringers and deck I can see where someone would run away. :-(

Here's our old 21' Offshore. Bought it new sometime around 1993 and kept it for seven years. At that point the rear deck was getting some soft spots and it was time for an upgrade. Definitely not the best built boat ever made, but it got the job done until I could afford a better boat. We affectionately called it the "Offshore Whore" but it wasn't a boat I wanted to go too far offshore with.

When this boat was built, Offshore was located in the Ulmerton and 49th St. area of Pinellas County. As I understood it, they were a completely different company with different boats than the Offshore that was located near the Sarasota airport.

Very similar, but yeah different enough. And the logo is completely different.The only other offshores I've ever seen were the ones with your logo. So the boats made in the 90s were either more plentiful, or my era boats simply sunk. :-)

I recon that the 80's boats were crap. I know that mine is. Still trying to decide whether to sink another 6K this winter to redo the deck, transom, stringers, and tank. The damn thing is so weight sensitive, I'm concerned about the ability to shift the weight enough to get neutral trim with the big setback and a larger outboard.
