Default 28 ft dual station cat/300 suzukis Now $59.9k

I purchased this boat off the THT last July. Boat is a 2001 Nautico Sea Gull tournament series 27 ft 10 inches long and 10 ft beam. Boat was completely restored in 2011/2012. everything that has been put on the boat was basically top of line stuff with no expenses spared. Brand new 300 hp suzukis with fly by wire throttles with Atlas hydraulic jack plates on both egines. Engines have just over a 1000 hrs on them and run good. Warranty until 07/09/2016. Large t-top and custom tower. All new upholstery seats and wrap around coaming pads. $2500 JL audio stereo system with 2 subs amplifier and 10 supporting speakers. Dancing under the gunnel led lights,12 inch raymarine touch screen, raymarine autopilot, raymarine high definition radar, 1000k transducer. underwater LED lights. LED lights on deck and in Hatches and console. Upstairs fly by wire controls digital gauges, raymarine 8 inch touch screen and a large seat for two. Boat has a huge custom built dive ladder as well as outriggers. I have a trailer that comes with boat just rebuilt last year. 4 commercial grade water tight storage hatches in floor with absolutely tons of storage. 60 gallon leaning post livewell, 6 ft long fish box with about 400 qts capacity with 2 custom dividers. 80 quart drink box/ console seat, 22 rod holders.
Boat holds 240 gal of fuel 120 each side. Fuel economy is 1.8 mpg at 32 mph normal load. . 1.5-1.6 mph at 40 mph cruise. Top end is at 52 mph currently. Have seen 56 once. However I know for a fact that props could be changed for increased speed/economy. I just didn't get around to it.
I bought the boat last year long range tuna trips to the rigs. I purchased it in July 2014 for 65k and have put in over 10k in upgrades and modifications in past year. I am big on preventative maintenance as I do not want to be broke down 100 miles offshore. Here is breakdown on what I have done to improve the boat. In Feb I put 4 brand new batteries in, had all fuel lines replaced with top of the line sierra 4000 ethanol resistant fuel line. brand new clear bowl filters and custom aluminum brackets. Engines had water pumps changed, new spark plugs, new filters, new corrosion anodes installed through both engines. Had 6 ft fish box and drink box pulled and insulated. cosmetic fiberglass work performed. New bilges and float systems. New underwater LED lights. Rebuilt the trailer with 6 new hubs and brand new brakes on axles, new bunks, new jack, and several new tires.
I have set the boat up for long range offshore trips, but she fishes just fine near shore as well. Boat has a big tunnel and rides very good. Boat is very stable with 10 ft beam. Tower folds down for trailering and is great for spotting birds and weedlines trolling or cobia fishing. I have run many overnight 2 day trips over 200 miles and feel very comfortable fishing it. This was a sweet boat when I bought it and even nicer now.
Please use forum or P.M. with questions. You can call me to see the boat. Boat is located in Gulf Breeze fl, which is very close to Pensacola. Price was $65000, now $59,900. 321-271-4556 Adam

Nice rig.

Any more pictures of all the hatches/in floor boxes? The spray rails on the front factory installed? Can they be taken off? Head in the console? Total weight of boat full of fuel?

Thanks for the comments, This boat all ways gets a lot of attention at the sandbar and ramp. If I remember the dry weight states 4200 lbs but with engines large second station and fuel closer to 7500 lbs. Spray rail was installed from previous owner. Can be removed but requires a lot of work and fiberglass touch up. Here is the pic of the huge fish box. I love the dividers which allows me to separate bait, ice, and fish. They can be pulled out for the longest wahoos. I looked up the water tight hatches online, I found them for around $1000 each. They are bad ass. Has 4 hatches and tons of storage under.

I really like the upstairs seat as two can easily sit with out being in each others lap. Having the electronics upstairs is nice as I have found many deep drop spots and stored them while trolling along weed lines and spotting fish from the top.

Some requests for more pictures. Huge live well under back side of leaning post. Sitting on top of leaning post facing back is great for watching your spread of lures.

Is there any wood in this boat (Floor, Stringers, transom, gunwales)?

Head in console?

Did some research on the boat and saw that some years had them while others didn't. Article didn't get too specific on which years.

There is some wood on the floor. It is done correctly and completely glassed in, the floor is more solid than any boat i have owned. Probably because it is glassed in and thick. No wood in transom. It is rock solid and feels like it when you walk around and check it out.

I think even yellowfin uses balsa wood in there boat. The key is using proper marine grade wood and glassed in with proper thickness and it can last decades. No head in console, i use 5 hallon bucket with sit on top toilet.

Thanks for info. This boat looks good and is set up very nice. If the boat is still around come Fall/Winter I may be in the market. Sorry for all the questions. Every time I see the pics I get antsy. Boat looks a lot like a Freeman and I know the odds are against me money wise for ever being able to own a Freeman but this boat is in my price range.

Divers dream! check out this custom dive ladder. Works perfect for getting in and out of water at sand bar as well as loading and unloading while on the trailer.
