Default 25' Kencraft Challenger $11k

Need a down payment on a house. The Kencraft's gotta go

1988 hull In excellent condition, had her 60 miles offshore last weekend. (EPIRB and type 1's can be included in sale)

Very stable yet rides good in the slop. Kencraft makes a very rugged boat, very difficult to find anyone who will say a bad word about them.

Updates this season, LED running and anchor light. New enclosure side curtains, new power pack, coils, voltage regulator and plug wires.

Last year the prop was re-done, a Faria fuel management system was added. New johnson bilge pump switch was put in.

Has very reliable 94' 200 Johnson Oceanrunner on it. Cruises around 27 knots, tops out around 34 knots. Burns around 17.5 gph at cruise. Holds 162 gallons of fuel in 2 centerline tanks.

Furuno 1942 radar

10" Garmin 2110 chartplotter

Standard Horizon VHF w/ twin 8ft digital antennas.

Airmar thru hull transducer.

Custom leaning post with livewell and rocket launcher.

SIRIUS ready black box stereo with two new speakers.

Comes with Long roller trailer in fair condition with certificate of origin but no registration.































will add some more detailed pics soon

In water, being fished right now. No sea trials, just fishing trips!

Asking $16,200

Yes, this model was made with twin 200's on a bracket. I think I've seen them with twin 150s on the transom. It has the fuel capacity for twins and sits very high with the single.

If I was keeping it I'd put a 300 etec on it when the oceanrunner goes. The oceanrunner eats gas and oil, but Is very reliable and cheap to fix/ get parts for.
