    If you have a very large budget for fuel it is a great boat. They ride OK and the fishing layout is pretty good. There are several of them for sale here in my area and noone seems to want them. 2 that I know of are priced below 30,000 and both have power that is less than 3 years old and the boats are in immaculate condition. Both have been on the market for 2 seasons without a taker. My understanding on one of them is that the owner would go as low as 24,000. It blows my mind that these boats could be had so cheaply. Unfortunately here in Southern NJ we have nearly an 80 mile ride to get to the fish offshore so most people are looking for a boat that is as fuel efficient as possible.
