I’m selling my 1997 Kencraft Challenger 206 with a 1996 Yamaha 150 - 2 stroke. I have had this boat for 10 years and I’m the second owner. Unfortunately, I’m physically unable now to use this boat and must sell. This would be a great “first” boat for someone as it includes so many extras.

Boat is located in Atlantic Highlands, NJ 07716 - $8,700 OBO

If you’re unfamiliar with the Kencraft line, they build solid, heavy-duty hulls with smart layouts for anglers. Please check out their reputation online. This hull has never been bottom painted and it has always lived on a trailer. The wood stringers in this boat are solid. I’m sorry but I do not have any scientific fuel burn or speed stats. It’s a carbureted engine, I averaged about 15 gallons for each trip, 27mph @ 4,000 RPM.

Three months of boat storage and launches are included at my marina. (August - October)

This has been a great boat. She has taken me on a lot of adventures and never let me down. I hoped to fish it this season but no-can-do. I just took the shrink wrap off on 7/21. Priced to sell - $8,700 is way below NADA “low retail” value.
