PICTURES ADDED PLEASE REVIEW LISTING YES, THIS BOAT HAS MARINE AIR CONDITIONING COOLING PUMP IS ALMOST NEW, IT HAS 16,000 BTU'S AND RUNS EASILY OFF OF THE INVERTER, MAKING FOR AN EXTREMELY QUIET OPERATION - NO GENERATOR SPUTTERING AND HISSING !!!!!! THE A/C ALSO CAN BE RUN AT DOCKSIDE SINCE THERE IS SHORE POWER AND A SWITCH FOR BOAT/SHORE SELECTION. LUHRS 300 EXPRESS W/TWIN DIESELS - NEXT LUHRS TO SELL ANYWHERE THIS IS THE BEST DIESEL POWERED FISHING BOAT YOU WILL EVER FIND FOR THE MONEY. THIS MODEL OF LUHRS IS THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER FISHING BOAT EVER MADE - I HAVE BEEN TOLD IT HAS BEEN CALLED "THE JIMMY BUFFETT" MODEL AS TALE HAS IT HE HAD A HAND IN THE DESIGN? ONE OF THE MOST RESPECTED NAMES IN BOAT BUILDING AND CONTINUES TO DO SO AFTER 50 +/- YEARS. COMPLETE REFIT IN 2001 TO INCLUDE FULL AWLGRIP PAINT OF ENTIRE HULL IN "FIGHTING LADY YELLOW" WITH WHITE ON THE TOPSIDES. ALSO INCLUDED WAS THE OVERHAUL OF BOTH ENGINES WHICH HAVE LESS THAN 500 HOURS OF "BREAK IN TIME" AS OF THIS WRITING. IN 2006, ELECTRONICS WERE UPGRADED TO INCLUDE A NEW LOCK-ABLE CUSTOM OVERHEAD ELECTRONICS BOX TO INCLUDE A FURUNO NAV PILOT 511 (ABSOLUTELY A GREAT MACHINE) COUPLED TO A FURUNO 1650 GPS W/MILITARY DIFFERENTIAL/FISH FINDER, AN ICOM VHF W/REMOTE ON TOWER AND TOPPING OFF THE LIST A RAYTHEON XX RASTERSCAN RADAR WITH THE RADAR DOME POSTIONED ATOP THE BUGGY TOP WHERE IT SHOUD BE FOR A CLEAN UNOBSTRUCTED RECEPTION AND PROPER PRESENTATION ON THE SCREEN. ALSO AT THIS TIME ELECTRIC MORSE SINGLE LEVER ENGINE CONTROLS WERE ADDED FOR BOTH ENGINES AT BOTH STATIONS - THESE ARE GREAT FOR ANYONE NEVER HAVING THE OPPORTUNITY TO USE SINGLE LEVER ELECTRONIC ENGINE CONTROLS - WILL/IS THE WAVE OF THE FUTURE. BOAT HAS BEEN CUSTOMIZED AND IS MAINTAINED BY FLORIDA YACHT SERVICE, INC. ALSO IN 2006 A NEW HAIER REFRIGERATOR WAS INSTALLED ALONG WITH A SHARP MICROWAVE AND A 3500/7000 WATT INVERTER. MOST PUMPS, HOSES ETC., HAVE BEEN REPLACED AND/OR UPGRADED WITHIN THE LAST FEW YEARS. THERE IS A COLLECTION OF SPARE PARTS AND FILTERS FOR THE ENGINES WHICH PURR AND DO NOT SMOKE. BOAT IS EQUIPPED WITH DUAL RACORS AND ALSO HAS THE NORMAL SEPARATE ENGINE MOUNTED FINAL FILTERS. INSURANCE COSTS ARE LOW FOR TWO REASONS - DIESEL FUEL PLUS SPEED IS BELOW 25 KNOTS. PLEASE SEE THE ENGINE SPECS FOR THESE MOTORS. www.yanmar.com.au/superseded/4LH-DTE.pdf THE YANMAR 4LH-DTE'S ARE EXCELLENT FOR THIS TYPE OF OPERATION AND ARE EXTREMELY ECONOMICAL TO OPERATE AND REPAIR WHEN NECESSARY AS THESE ENGINES ARE "SLEEVED" AND ALSO ARE STILL IN PRODUCTION BY THE MANUFACTURER. OUTRIGGERS WERE REPLACED ALSO IN 2006 ALONG WITH NEW TWIN TRUMPET "HAIMM"(JUST ABOUT THE BEST $ CAN BUY) AIR HORNS, ALONG WITH A NEW WINDLASS (NEVER USED YET) INSTALLED IN 2009. EXTERIOR HAS THIRTEEN (13) ROD HOLDERS AND THERE ARE ABOUT THE SAME AMOUNT OF "HIDDEN ROD HOLDERS" IN THE CABIN - SERIOUS FISHING MACHINE. ENGINE ROOM IS VERY CLEAN WITH "DIAMOND PLATE" AND A BRAND NEW LENCO HATCH LIFT (4/2011) PLUS THE FUEL TANK (250 GALLONS) IS FULL !!!!!!!!!!!1 CUSTOM REMOVABLE BACK BENCH REST WHICH FITS THE TRANSOM ROD HOLDERS AND/OR THE TOWER STATION FOR COMFORT. COCKPIT BOLSTERS/CUSHIONS ARE REMOVABLE IN 15 SECONDS (TIME ME) TO KEEP OUT OF THE WEATHER - AND CAN BE REINSTALLED IN THE SAME TIME. LIVE WELL IN TRANSOM. SALTWATER COCKPIT WASH DOWN WITH FESH WATER SINK/SHOWER BAIT PREP STATION HIDDEN BETWEEN TWO BUILT IN FIGHTING CHAIRS WITH GIMBALS AND THE "TACKLE DRAWERS" ARE REMOVABLE PLASTIC TRAYS FOR EASE OF USE. TUNA DOOR TO SWIM PLATFORM W/BUILT IN RECESSED SWIM LADDER. HATE TO GIVE THIS UP - BUT DO NOT USE IT ENOUGH, AND HAVE HAD TWO OF MY BEST FISHING BUDDIES RECENTLY PASS. INSPECTION AS ALWAYS AND/OR A SURVEY IS WELCOME AND EXPECTED, BUT AT THE PRICE THE BOAT IS BEING "GIVEN AWAY", IT IS "AS-IS WHERE-IS". CAN AND WILL HELP WITH ANY/ALL ARRANGEMENTS FOR INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING, AS IT APPEARS THESE BOATS WITH THESE ENGINES ARE EXTREMELY POPULAR IN EUROPE. PLEASE CHECK MY FEEDBACK - I DO NOT MISREPRESENT ANY ARTICLE I SELL. PERSONAL ITEMS ARE EXCLUDED FROM THIS SALE. VESSEL IS IN THE WATER AT CLEARWATER BEACH, FLORIDA WITH MONTHLY DIVE SERVICES FOR CLEANING AND THE OCCASIONAL AND NECESSARY ZINC REPLACEMENTS AS REQUIRED. I HAVE ALL MONTHLY DIVE INPSECTION REPORTS. ALSO HAVE ALL MANUALS FOR ALL INSTALLED EQUIPMENT, INCLUDING A MAINTENANCE MANUAL FOR THE ENGINES. OF COURSE QUESTIONS ARE WELCOME AND EXPECTED. EITHER EMAIL THRU EBAY OR DIRECTLY TO gtroyan@tampabay.rr.com OR PHONE CALLS DURING REASONABLE HOURS ARE ALSO WELCOME 727-462-5793 OR MY CELL 727-410-5129, AND FOR INTERNATIONAL PARTIES PLEASE SKYPE.
