Predator Center Console 33ft
1991 Hull, 3 - 2005 Suzuki DF250s.
This is the story on the boat, 5 were commissioned for the Kuwait Coast Guard, they were brought to the Miami boat show in 1991 and then shipped overseas. Not sure how many made it back but this one did obviously.
Made by Tilton Boatworks in Florida, the hull is Kevlar & Fiberglass and not a piece of wood anywhere on or in the boat (except for a knife holder in center console). You will not find a soft spot anywhere on the deck or hull, boat is as solid as it comes. The beam is 12 1, not sure of the dead rise. The free board & flair on this boat is ridiculous, its nice and deep, great for fighting fish, kids, dry ride, and overall safety.
Weight 10-12k lbs.
Boat cruises at 33-35 mph @ 4100 rpm burning 1.5-1.7 gph. Other cruise speed is 36-38 mph @ 4500 rpm burning 1.2-1.4 gph. Top speed is 48-52ish, but never gets there, I prefer to save my gas.
Starboard engine was rebuilt couple years ago

Its not fast like a Yellowfin, Hydra-Sport or Contender, but its smooth and will get you there comfortably, dry & efficiently. Boat is in good condition and fishes very well. Its caught a lot of fish from Pinellas County to the Keys and back. Because of the bouyant lightweight strong Kevlar hull and hull design, this boat loves weight. You put 6-7 adults, full tank of gas and lots of ice/coolers/gear in this boat & it rides awesome.
It towers over all center consoles in its class.
It does have bottom paint on it, but its been on a lift since I bought it, so I havent bothered to repaint.
If you dont like talking to people dont buy this boat, you will get asked questions everywhere you go.
Purchased the boat in 2009 and selling to downsize.
I DO NOT have a trailer for this boat.
