1979 Aquasport 22-2 - Complete Rebuild!!
Available on

1979 Aquasport 22-2, modified V hull. Completely restored from ground up in 2012 by Shipoke Boatworks in Tampa. The boat was built using composite materials like Coosa and Nidacore so there's no wood to soak up water and rot. Just a few details:
- 150 Yamaha 4-stroke on Porta bracket, only about 100 hrs on motor, has been meticulously maintained
- 3/4 tower from Quality T-Tops in Tarpon Springs, FL, with dual helms
- Dual morse controls (gear/throttle) at both stations w/ blinker-style trim and jackplate controls
- Custom coffin box for storage in front of console
- In-floor storage on either side of console running entire length of boat
- 82 gallon fuel tank
- 2 livewells, 1 as seat behind console and other in transom
- LED nav/anchor lights; nav lights are mounted either side of upper e-box
- Interior LED lights (blue) as well as LEDs in both livewells
- Garmin 4212 w/ 1kW tilted element thru-hull transducer
- Standard Horizon VHF & Fusion IP-700 stereo/iPod player
- Too many more to list!
The boat cruises with 4 guys and a load of fuel at about 30 mph burning 3.8-4 mpg. With the Porta bracket the boat will run in a foot of water or less. Some of the pics show trollin' tabs on the transom, but I replaced those with regular tabs because I never used the trollin' tabs.
The restore was done in first-class fashion, and as I mentioned there are many more frills that aren't listed here. The trailer was built by Loadmaster, brand new, and fit to the boat. I may be interested in keeping the trailer unless someone is in definite need of it.
Ultimately, I hate to be listing the boat for sale, but I have some ideas for another restore and want to see if there's any interest in this boat. It's a head-turner and is the only boat like it in the country. I have not listed a price here, I would rather talk with anyone interested first. Below is a link to some more pictures and a little more info on the build. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, thanks!
