I am not sure who built it. It was for sale on the hull truth last year, i think it was in Maine? Awesome little boat, had a 6bta 315hp I believe if memory serves me right.

Pretty sure she used to the Alison from Kennebunkport. 26' General Marine with a 315 Cummins. A guy who worked for Stacey's brother, [who built the DMR boats] finished her off and did very well tuna fishing. He had a trailer and fished from Maine to N.C.
Awesome rig.

That boat would be the perfect set up in a 36-38 ft 13-15 ft beam, Wayne or Calvin Beal, with a winter back with door & sliding doors both port & stb.
House about 9-10ft wide !
i agree with Ronnie...if i ever build another boat it will be a walkaround

Cool boat.

But he really needs a troll valve.

I'll never forget what a guy told me 25 years ago about going offshore in an open boat like that. He was a charter captain who started going offshore in outboards.

General Marine

I am the current owner. It is a custom built 26 General Marine built by a guy from Maine. It has the 6LP 260 Yanmar. Best 26 footer you will ever find!

Just to clarify, I think that General Marine is a bad-ass rig. I wouldn't call that a center console, just a walk-around. The 32' Mitchell Cove- well maybe there's a reason she's been in the National Fisherman for sale section for years now...

As for wet boats, my 56' DMR low house head boat is one of the wettest.
