Default 28' Master Marine CC

The hull is 1981 with a complete refit in 2015, along with a single 2010 F300 with approximately 1300 hours on a Armstrong bracket. Currently being auctioned on Ebay with no reserve. Fully equipped for fishing. Furuno 582, Furuno 1850, Lowrance 104c (11"), Raymarine ST6000 autopilot, saltwater washdown, live well, top gun outriggers, new canvas top, full 3-sided curtains, bennet trim tabs, Clarion stereo, VHF. Motor has electronic control. 2013 aluminum dual axle torsion bar trailer bought new in 2016. Center console, T-top and leaning post came off a sea cat. The hull was built by Master Marine and designed for a single outboard. Commonly referred to as a Moonie. A couple hundred of these boats were built for the Moonies to go Bluefin tuna fishing in. Google it. Boat was in storage for many years, probably since the 1980s when they impounded all the boats from the Moonies. In the refit the motor well was removed, the transom closed in and the bracket added. Vessel is fully functional, all systems work but still could use some minor finishing touches to the refit. The hull is deep V featuring heavy construction (the aft rod holders are actually glassed in) and a very sharp entry. Very smooth ride. Motor powerhead was reported to have been replaced at approximately 600 hours under warranty. Bracket is drilled for both twins and single engine. Runs great with about a 20 - 22 knot cruise. Boat stays in water in Wrightsville Beach, NC. I have a new boat and have to sell to make room. Asking $19,000. I currently have it on no reserve Ebay auction. Sold it last week on Ebay but buyer never showed up. A lot of boat for the money. Call/text with any questions/more photos. Thanks, Miles 910-228-1000.

I couldn't find it either. But figured out you have to search on 1981 master marine.
The Yamaha control for the engine is electronic. I had a F350 on the boat for about 10 hours before it got water in the oil (I'll never own another F350). The engine control is from the F350.

Big difference. The F350 has so much more torque with the cubic inches. Its the reason I originally went with it. Boat cruised about 5 knots faster. Sat a little lower in the rear cause of the weight. But overall I thought is was a good match.
