Super Duty 33' ex military gunboat, Former Vessel Assist rescue boat.

Fully loaded think six-pac, commercial fishing, towing, salvage, crabber, patrol, light boat.

Was originally a navy personnel launch 2 plus 20 so one could get COI for 20 passengers.

It was then used as a Sherrifs patrol boat, crabber, tow boat, a live aboard and then a ocean rescue boat.

The hull is thick fiberglass and in great shape no blisters or damage.

It was made before they cut corners and made production fiberglass boats.

Has a forward hydro bow thruster, aft tow post and capstan.

Towing lights.

Would make a great personnel launch, commercial fishing boat or super duty sport personal fishing boat.

I have a survey valuing it at 55k.

It has been just painted and the bottom has been surveyed and painted 2013.

I have used it in 50 knot gales with no problems.

This is a very safe boat that will save your life if you get in a bad spot.

The engine has been taken very good care of with oil changes every 200 hours and annual servicing by a certified mechanic.

The turbo was has just been replaced less then two hours on it.

Has a brand new alternator.

Also had a compression check done and the mechanic said it would go another ten years as is and that it does not need a rebuild.

The vessel has a new coat of high grade red and white auto paint out side and marine white inside.

The boat comes with spares parts.

The boat is having a good going through and will be sold in ship shape and in working order.

This boat is fondly referred to as the Beast.

Not because it is big and ugly but because you can dish it anything and it will chew it up and spit it out. . .

That is why my friends are begging me to keep it for my personal use.

They even offered to do all the maintenance and pay the slip and insurance for me.

But it is time to move on and find the Beast a new master…
