Available on
Sarasota Florida

FS: 22ft Tolman Widebody skiff. Excellent condition. This is an Alaskan dory skiff. Built in 2000/2001.
New in 2011: Console, splashwell, electrical and hydraulic steering in 2011. Regularly fish 30 to 60 miles offshore in this boat..... just about every weekend I am way-offshore chasing grouper in this boat. Fuel economy is between 5 and 6 mpg depending upon load and sea conditions. Never less than 5mpg with 400lbs of ice and several people aboard.
Cruise speed with the Suzuki DF115 is 24mph at 3800-4000rpm. Motor is a 2008 and has 205 hrs of running time logged. Motor comes with a newer PowerTech SS prop as well as the original Suzuki prop.
Package also has a Loadrite galvanized single axle trailer that has new hubs, bearings, springs and lights (all replaced in 2011).
Other features of the boat: deck lighting, Icom 502 VHF, anchor roller/pulpit, Rule bilge pump, W/C bronze thru-hull, livewell pump and feed. Lots of storage.
Everything on the boat works! There is nothing that is in need of repair.
I was offshore fishing in this boat last Tuesday; ran 141 miles total and burned 26 gallons of fuel for a fuel economy of 5.4mpg (real numbers, not fabricated to assist with the sale of this boat). That is with 2 men, 1 95-lb dog, 300lbs of ice and a bunch of tackle. Fished as far as 56 miles offshore.
I am willing to sell the boat and trailer seperate from the motor or all as a package.
Boat is located in Sarasota Florida.
Complete package - $10.5k with the DF115
Complete package minus motor - $4.5k
Boat is made from Meranti Plywood that is fully encapsulated with RAKA epoxy. Boat has been garage kept when not in use.
With a growing family and more offshore fishing, I have simply ouitgrown this fine boat. I'd love to keep her, but I am running out of room. Plus, I plan on fishing more from the 23 SeaCraft that I recently finished building.
Again, I'll sell the boat/trailer or the boat/motor/trailer.
Electronics are currently a Furuno FCV620 sonar and a Garmin 2010c but I do not plan on selling these units with the boat.
