We use our boat for canyon fishing and all kinds of mid-range and inshore fishing as well, and we also use it as our liveing quaters when down there 2-3 days at a time, Would this boat be a good fit for that or is more of just a commercial fishing vessel? I had some guys recommend that we look into some of the Downeast boats and we've been told they'd be a good boat for an older gent, that they ride excellent and are extremely stable. I saw the 28 BHM which looked like a great charter type boat but a bit to small for staying on, I see alot of the Beal models when looking for DE SF boats, wondering if this would be good or any other companies that may make a boat for what we want to use it for? thanks very much.

Ron, whomever advised on downeasters was giving good advice! Yes, the tower and pulpit were custom built for this boat, but are fairly easily removed and are adaptable to other vessels so there is some intrinsic value to them. Albeit not anywhere near what they cost to fab for this boat, they do have some value. The pulpit is actually not included in the selling price so you wouldnt have to worry about that.

Beal has designed many of the current downeast models out there, even though some bear the respective builders name. There are many various builders of downeasters and since they are custom built boats quality varies greatly with each builder and or finisher.

My particular boat would fall somewhere between a commercial fishing boat and a yacht. It has enough accommodations to keep a few people aboard for 2-3 days at a time.

If interested in seeing it, feel free to contact me to schedule something.

Thanks

Paul

Thanks very much Paul for the info. I would love to take a look at your boat, your aways from us, but if our sale on our Albe happens then I would take the ride to see her. since the pulpit would be removed, I would think the smart think for us todo would be remove the high tuna tower in away that it could easily be reinstalled if selling it in the future, I know there are very few items on a boat new that come anywhere near the same cost when selling it used. Would probably gain a bit on cruise speed without the pulpit and tower plus, increase the stability on the drift. Pop worries about going to a single engine since we run offshore 80-90 miles, but what you can in a single engine set-up especially in a DE boat is an awfull lot. The tremedous economy in fuel burn burned in these days is just extremely important, it makes engine access so much eaiser especially going from Twin IBs with a Genset in between them in a 32 ft. boat like we have, we would have half the cost in maintenance and half as many things that could breakdown going to a single IB. While the major trend is togo to big 30-36' Center consoles with huge Outboards lined across the transom for running offshore day trips, we're starting to see more and more single IB downeast boats showing up as well. We must have a cabin since we use our boat as our shore house as well as fishing boat, even if I had a shore house we still would want a boat with a cabin, I can't see my 70yr old Pop sitting on a bean bag chair running 40knts to the Canmyon, nor do I want a boat I can't get out of the elements. We have a 20' CC which we love and do use for our inshore and backwater fishing which is excellent. Those trips are shorter and close to home so in that case the CC is great. We don't need a boat that is super fast even when running offshore, I honestly prefer to run overnight trips when going that far, it eliminates running in the dark and I enjoy being out there. If we did break down there's always sea tow, and the newer diesel engines are quite reliable as long as you stay up on your maintenance it would be a rare occasion to break down out there. I think since he's gotten older you get a bit more nervous about being out there with a single engine boat, when he was in his 40's and 50's we used to run a 22 single OB 40-60 miles on nice days and I didn't have to bend his arm to make those trips, but the main reason we're makeing the move from our current boat is to get a boat more comfortable for him to run and be on, especially on days I can't go out with him. The up and down to the Flybridge has just gotten hard own his knees and God forbid he slipped comeing up or down, I don't haver the best back and joints either so we both are looking forward to running the boat from the main deck and also both plan to fish for many more years no matter how we feel, it's just in our blood and we are very passionate about our sport. Again thank you and hope to be makeing a move in the near future if we sell or even get a serious looker I'll give you a holler to talk with you and take a look your boat. Tight lines, Ron

Sounds good Ron.Just an FYI though, if my boat is not sold by end of December, it likely will come off the market.

I love the Boat, out of my league right now, but Did I read correct it has 200 gallons of fuel only? What type of range does that give?

I see you are MMA grad, what year did you graduate. Were you sailing when you lost your job?

Will consider partial trades of real estate, newer vehicles with under 30K miles, motorcycles, and even consider any quality boat with less than $50K in trade value.

I was told that the island has a couple Seaworthy's on it now. This guy fished on one and liked it so he set about buying one, sight unseen actually. He sent me some pics after he'd had it awhile and it looks like a dog's breakfast now, set up and used hard for commercial fishing, made me sad actually!

Hooper, Do you have any idea what he paid to ship it there? I own a place in puerto rico and often wondered what I would pay to ship my little whaler there.

Puerto Rico, nice!

I don't know what it cost, a broker he was dealing with arranged the shipping on his behalf. I do know that he had a 12K # Loadmaster trailer made up special for the trip from Cape Cod to Norfolk, VA where the ship took it south. The broker was Larry Bussey in case you want to do some research on that.

Sorry for the thread hijacking....

That sucks......I know that was a very nice boat and you kept it up too. May be down there this winter, if so I will check in on it and give you a report.

Hello 1.) is the boat still for sale 2.) where is it located 3.) how much are you asking 4.) at what rpm does the boat run at 17k and is that with the stand on it. Sorry for all the questions but this is a very long post and a bit confusing since I do not have time to read it all? Regards mike If you prefer call email me at mbeng7@cs.com At that point we can exchange telephone numbers. Thanks
