Default 25 Kencraft Buxton PilotHouse Cummins Tower

25' Kencraft Buxton Pilot House Cummins Tower Vehicle Description
ENGINE: Single Cummins 6bt 210hp w just under 1376 hours. Very reliable and maintained maticulously. Engine had a brand new water pump installed at 1200 hours and painted with Awlgrip. Engine comes with two extra impellers and waterpump. This engine does not burn any oil or smoke! Bring your mechanic to inspect it. I can't say enough about the engine and how well it runs. New valve cover gaskets were intsalled in March also. There are 2) aluminum 50 gallon saddle tanks that have a Racor 500 filtration system on each tank. Has a unique valve system to where the engine can draw off both tanks or one or the other while utilizing the racor Filters.
RUNNING GEAR: ZF 220A 1.6:1 Tranny is solid with no noises or leaking oil. When I purchased the boat it had a small leak around the main output shaft and I had it removed and a gasket kit along with a new main bearing installed by Clutch Products. This solved the problem. When the running gear was out I aslo had a new Flex Plate installed along with a new 1.25" shaft made by Bay Machine Shop along with a new cutlas bearing installed. This was all done in last 3 years. The prop is a 4 blade Nibral that is new last year and also comes with a 3 blade Nibral that is only two years old that has not been used more than 50 hours. The Prop is fully protected by a stainless skeg/rudder shoe
STEERING: When I purchased the boat it had rack and pinion steering and replaced it with Hynautic Hydaraulic Steering. I used the H-21 Helms that are for large boats along with a monster ram for the rudder. This was kind of over kill but I knew the Hynautic Steering from previous boat and it is proven.
Electrical: Boat has 3 Deep Cycle batteries one is the house battery and the other 2 are for starting the engine. After everything is up and running I use all three at once to be charged by a commercial 60 amp alternator that is new in January of 2008. There is a commercial two bank battery charger onboard. The switch panel for all dc accesories is only 3 months old and is set-up perfect. All running lights, cabin lights, and spreader light are new within the last year. Lenco Trim Tabs new in 2007
Tower: I had the upper station of the tower rebuilt in January of 2008 with a nice couch to relax while site fishing for cobia.
Trailer: 1995 LoadMaster Dual Axle Aluminum Trailer that has high bunks for the Skeg clearance. The trailer is rated for 7000lbs. It has not been titled because I live 5 blocks from the boat ramp, but I have a bill of sale where I purhased it. The Boat stays in the water 6 months and on the trailer 6 months.
Pilot House: The inside was redone this past winter with new windows, awlgrip paint, durabak non skid, and new controls for the engine along with some additional seating on the port side with some storage. The Captains Chair is also new along with the pedestal.
Hull: The bottom was completely stripped in October of 2008 and epoxy 235 barrier coat was applied along with Interlux Ablative bottom paint.
ELECTRONICS: Furuno FCV-1100 commercial bottom machine with a 1000kw transducer (amazing machine), Garmin Gps, Icom Vhf, and a Side Sonar made by Aqua Star that has two transducer (1 for scanning and 1 for looking down) JBL ipod/Sirius Radio paid up until April 2010. Radar in picture is not included (it quit working last year)
Extras: 35 gallon livewell, Saltwater wash down, life jackets, 500' rode w/ anchor, fire extinguishers, and Horn
PERFORMANCE: Fuel burn is 5 gallons and hour at 18 knots at 2150 Rpm. This is boat will surprise everyone with the economy of the fuel burn.
This boat is a proven fish catching machine! It is safe and rides well. When it gets nasty and all the center consoles that run 30 knots have to slow down this boat will pass them at its steady 18 knots with minimum fuel burn. I take my 3 and 4 year old out all the time and it makes a great boat for the family and the serious fisherman. I am very reluctant to sell because the money and hardwork I have invested. However, I am downsizing to something small that I can handle with just me and the kids. Please Call Mark @ 850 777-4455 with any questions

Would consider trade for a 22-24 center console.

I had a 1984 kencraft buxton.
Loved it, wish I never sold it.

That boat and that furuno fcv 1100 are a matched pair.
