My daughters grandfather just bought it.
I wasn't there when he bought it....he knows as much about boats as I do about time travel.

Looks like an old Grady white islander 1980 maybe?

Bastardized. Maybe little older than that. Please tell me he didn’t pay good money for that.

I cut up an 81 Offshore I can assure you that boat is a rainforest below decks.

Fuel tank and transom are well known issues. If he just bought the motor that’s cool

I'm not sure honestly what they go for. But a couple of things other than it being a very old boat. The hardtop was custom, the exterior appears pretty well kept and the outboard if kept up with service is way more power than needed for that boat. If the rest of the boat is solid and or was kept up with, then you may have a nice boat there. Just too many variables without inspecting it first. Do you mind saying what you paid?

Looks like a 20 Overnighter. I had one a long time ago, the top is custom. I think the boat is a little newer than you may believe as mine had a notched transom this has a bracket. Not sure what year they went from the brown accent color to the blue but it's probably a late model "Brown".

OP the hull ID is somewhat viewable if you take a pic or get that number it would be easy to figure it out.

I believe that's called the Grady White Abortion Model

I could be wrong though


BTW - Isn't your daughters grandfather your father, or FIL?

Oh, the Grady White Walk Around Pilothouse model. It must have been built by the GW-North yard.

Yup, certainly looks like a late 70s Frankenstein Grady 20’ Overnighter that’s been refitted to be a Pilothouse. What did he pay?

people spend 3k plus on kayaks these days. If it floats and runs, he did ok. Wouldn't put any money in it though.

In addition to the advice you got above, check out the transom and the bracket on that thing. It may have been an I/O and you want to make sure the hole is properly filled in behind that bracket. Is the trailer just covered with that brown bottom pain or is that rust? Shake the hell out of that dog house topper and make sure those joints are going to hold up if it takes a wave. It looks like it is held on with screws and the joint is filled with caulk. I'd clean it up and glass it on.

They are good boats, but the old hulls have their issues. Make sure this thing is seaworthy.

I actually like it. Nice little work boat. That wheelhouse will come in handy . Trailer looks decent. If the motor doesn’t have any serious issues I’d say he did great . 4 k is practically free in today’s boat market
