Default My new 43 Ocean

So my new boat has finally arrived. After a long search I finally settled on her. She is a 2005 43 Ocean Super Sport. Twin 500 hp Yanmars. 25-26 knot cruise. 650 hours. She was up in RI. Had her delivered on Wed. I'm still going through everything and making her my own. then on to sea bass, followed by sharking/canyons for the season. Can't wait to get her bloody. She's in near mint condition.

Also wanted to thank everyone who helped me along the way on my search. Many folks on this site have been very helpful providing excellent first hand insight on the boats I looked at.

Boat looks great, but in that last pic not sure if you noticed some vagrant who looks a bit sketchy sitting on it. Might want to make sure you don't leave anything valuable out

Can't thank Captain John enough

He delivered the boat from Rhode Island back home to NJ. What a pro!! Kept me updated the whole trip. Kept me posted the entire week and a half leading up to the trip. Absolutely great to work with. I'd recommend him to anyone needing a real deal professional to help bring the new baby home!!
Thanks again Capt. It was a pleasure meeting you and working with you.
