Default Palmetto Custom New Yamaha 150's

Well the time has come and we are ready to get a bigger boat so we are putting our Palmetto Custom up for sale. We are up for trading +cash for a Palmetto Custom 33, Contender 30+, Cape Horn or something along those lines. This is by far the best riding small sized offshore boat I have ever had and the ONLY reason we are getting rid of it is to take extra people out. This boat is very comparable to the Contender 25T (my buddy has the Contender and he said the size is almost exact, Palmetto is smoother, but the contender is faster). Boat is in Venice, LA we can schedule a time to do a day of fishing (test rides don't get the full effect IMO).

This boat is titled as a 23 Custom, but when you measure it you get just over 26' that's why they ride so well. We consistently fish in 3' seas with no problem. Top speed I have seen at 6,000 RPM is 42.8 kts, cruise speed is about 32kts @ 4500 RPM getting roughly 2 MPG. On one tank I have put 220 NM on one tank of gas with 8 gallons left in it (on accident, we got lucky).

Simrad NSS 7 radar/sonar/GPS plotter

Radio

Stereo

Built in rod holders/Gaff holders each side

Spreader lights front and back

55 Gallon dual pump livewell (some reviews say it's the best livewell made and we have never had a pogie die in it out over 70 miles and 100 lived overnight last weekend)

15 Gallon Fresh Water Tank with washdown

Macerator in fishbox and head

94 qt cooler with cushion

2015 Twin Yamaha 150 4 strokes 122 hours as of 5/25/2015 (3 overnight trips) with 5 year warranty

137 Gallon Gas tank

Mirage 17 stainless props

Dual axle aluminum trailer

Brand new batteries


I am sure I am missing something, so shoot me a txt if you have any questions the boat is in Venice so if you want to test fish it let me know.

We have had at least 5 folks on THT on the boat, they can vouch for the ride in TERRIBLE seas (5'+ with 20 knt quartering wind was not fun, but it was safe) and flying down the river.

Boat fishes 4 super easy on overnighters, with a max of 6 to be comfortable on a snapper run or rig fishing.

$59,750

Just sold mine they are great boats. I fished mine all day at the Canyons(65 miles out) and all we would burn is 85 gallons. I had a fiberglass guy look at mine and say it was one of the best built boats he had ever seen. I you need any help with the sale or anybody has a question feel free to call 443-336-5161. GLWTS

I overnighted on this sucker. Nice to fish in and the open bow gives plenty of room for fishing or snoozing. We rolled in from 40 miles out in solid 3-5+ footers. While we were not setting any speed records, the boat handled it very well and kept us dry. No hard landings at all. Nice boat Gene and I can't wait to see the next one.

Dude that trip was ROUGH!!!

My wife gave me the go ahead for a 2013 Cape Horn I have been eyeballing, but I'm gonna hold out for a palmetto 33 after the experience with this one...I wish they were still mfg, it's a shame...

This is a great boat. I had a 2004 23 and upsides to a 2005 33 about six years ago. I am actually thinking of selling my 33 and getting something a bit more family oriented. Might consider a trade + cash for a 23.
