New Bomar

We are selling our 28 foot Carolina Classic express with twin Cummins diesels. My sons and I have treated this boat as our primary hobby for the past two years, and almost every weekend we are working on it to make sure it is in top condition, mechanically and cosmetically. My family and I use this boat for family cruising even more than for fishing, so we've worked hard to ensure that it's in great shape. The cabin is in like-new condition with all new soft goods. The only thing that isn't working is the center wiper motor for the windshield (the other two motors work). Otherwise, it's 100% operational and ready to fish and cruise. All service items on the engines and generator have just been done, so this boat needs NOTHING. You can step on and go fishing immediately.
This boat is VERY fuel efficient. It burns about 17 gallons per hour at a 24 knot cruise, including the fuel burn for the generator. (We always run the generator so we can have the cabin at 65 degrees while we're fishing.) You can fish 80 miles out all day on about 120 gallons. We LOVE this boat. It has been a pleasure to own and share with my family, but it's time for us to move on.
We are asking $62,500 and will consider reasonable offers.
