Big, beamy fishing platform with a pair of Detroit 6-71 Naturals, 570 hrs. since full rebuilds. Motors run great. Boat is solid and stable. Sturdy plank on frame construction, giant cockpit with 3 chair setup and center console bridge with side benches. New batteries and charger. 15 knot cruise and burns just over 20gph. Roomy engine space with easy access to everything and large hatches, should someone want to increase horsepower and speed. Spacious salon with clean simple layout, head, storage and bunks below. Great deal for the money and lots of possibilities.
The Reel Addicition is a very cool, old school boat that is being offered at a very affordable number. She is built heavy duty in a plank on frame style with extra beefy frames and longitudinal stringers. She is glassed at the transom and around her chines, a foot up and down on either side. For power, she has a pair of Detroit 6-71 naturally aspirated motors. They were completely rebuilt in 2011 and have only 570 hours on them. These are very dependable motors but do not create a lot of horsepower, lending to her 15 knot cruise. Fishing out of Hatteras, NC for the last number of years, this has not been an issue as the fishing is normally close and her fuel burn is minimal. The salon deck hatch setup is such that it could easily be totally removed for direct access to the engine room which has plenty of space to accommodate an array of power options that could more than double the horsepower in the same footprint. The riggers have been removed for recent hurricanes and they sustained a little damage. They could be made workable with a few parts or a more modern set could be installed. She is very low maintenance in regard to cleanup and everything is easy to access throughout. She offers a great, stable ride and a world of fishing area...Giant cockpit, huge fishbox, central access ladder to the bridge and wide coverboards and walkways up the turndowns to the bow.
The owner loves her but has become too busy to enjoy her and just wants to let her go. At this price, there is a lot of potential in this rig and countless options for the ways to enjoy and improve her over time.
