It has a brand new custom made T top with Sunbrella fabric, radio box w/buss bar, 3 piece curtains, 6 gold rod holders, zippered life jacket holder, LED flood lights, a mounting plate for radar and antennas, stern light and has welded plates with 3? holes ready for outriggers. I was really picky about the top and Modlin?s welding did a perfect job.
The 2010 Venture trailer is an aluminum tandem axle with aluminum mag wheels and 7000 lb capacity. It has about 800 miles total since when I bought it new.
Also included with the boat are 2 Penn Fathom master 625 downriggers with extendable booms and swivel bases, VHF radio and high gain antenna with SS mount, compass, LED bow light, leaning post with back rest that includes a built in insulated bait prep area and 40 gallon live well with several rod holders,
It took me 1.5 years to rebuild this boat. I raised the deck 1.5? to make sure it would self bail with twins, including 4 strokes. I installed a bracket and twin 250 Mercury outboards. It would run upper 60?s with 500 hp. I used the boat from Sept-Nov 2011, 5 fishing trips. I decided to sell the engines and in the spring go with a single 4 stroke 250-300hp. It would run 49mph on gps with only one 250 engine running and the other one tilted up.
So I sold the engines, controls, twin bracket and steering. I unfortunately will be selling the boat instead of repowering it. My son starts college this fall and my other son needs help buying his first truck. On top of that, my wife?s boss cut her hours to part time so I need to let go of things that I don?t need right now.
I looked for 2 years for one of these hulls because they are the best riding 23? ever. I found it in Virginia and brought it back to NC to rebuild it. You will not regret buying this boat. It will run in a 4? head sea at 45 mph without any problems. I rebuilt it for rough weather fishing with high hp. From the t top to the 3.5? thick transom and everywhere in between, you will not find a 23? Formula this nice for the price.
I have clear titles in hand for boat and trailer. $12,900. 252-728-6923
