32x12.5 Cape Islander, fully rebuilt from the hull up in 2021, 2800hrs on the entire boat, motor and all systems. Located in Eastport, Maine.

I raised the sheer 14” all the way around, raised the deck so she sits with 14” to the waterline, and pitched the deck astern for better drainage rather than to the sides like most Canadian boats. Widened hauling rail, long enough for two 54” lobster traps to be gone through at a time on. I slid the wheelhouse forward for more deck space, and made a built in, foldable side to cover the starboard portion of the cabin.

- 270 6BTA raw water cooled and 2:1 MG506 Twin Disc
- dual racor filter system
- direct drive hydraulics, 14” hauler with stainless plates
- 1” jabsco water pump
- 2 VHF radios
- FCV-628 Furuno Sounder
- 1815 Furuno Radar 36 mile range
- standard horizon plotter
- 80 gallon fuel tank + a stern compartment I built on to hold another 20 gallons + access to tank vents and pickup/return fuel lines (I fully cleaned and inspected the tank during the rebuild, I’ve never had fuel quality issues with the boat the filter bowls are always clean)
- steel prop cage
-2’ stern extension, radar/light stand, davit, buoy/trap rack, all rugged built aluminum
- LED hauling lights, deck lights, spot/flood and navigation lights
- shaft saver coupling between the shaft and gear

This past season:
-brand new coolers for the hydraulics to replace the old ones
-converted the motor to a spin on fuel filter rather than a cartridge system to make servicing 10x easier
- brand new RE Thomas rudder stuffing box
- brand new heat exchanger

Comes with:
- spare fuel lift pump
- spare raw water pump
- spare set of injectors
- spare heat exchanger

This boat is extremely fuel efficient. I fished 700 traps last season hauling through them 2-3 times a week and would fuel up every 1-2weeks depending on how far away my gear was. I have always kept the steel cage on and she likes to go around 7 knots with that. The boat will go 8-9 and top around 10+ without the cage, but it’s not a planing hull. It’s a displacement hull meant to carry a ton of weight, efficiently and she does just that, not a speed boat.

Everything on the boat is mechanical and accessible to work on. I made this boat to be a fuel efficient and utilitarian work platform, that was simple to service and operate. I upgraded to this boat from a 20’ skiff and it was a world of difference, and it did not cost much to run as I learned.

Reasonable offers considered. Please do not reach out if you’re keel kickin’. I can have the boat launched for a sea trial if someone is genuinely interested.
