Looking for a Fishing boat 34-38' for some chartering, mostly comercial tuna fishing. Preferably hrs below 2500. Would like cockpit controls and pot hauler, but not a must. Price below 160k. Any leads would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Wasn't there a lively discussion on here about this particular vessel and the seller not too long ago?

Reminds me of buying a Northern Bay 36 back in 2002. We agreed on a price, went home to send the check for the deposit, he refused it. A few days later we agreed on the same price again, sent the check and he refused it. Game over, a year later the boat finally sold...

I dont know, I always seem to judge fisherman on "how new" their truck is... So funny how many times they tell me its been a horrible year but they show up with a new 2500 but they never use it for fishing, maybe it see's the liferaft...

Ahh not always true, but you know what I mean... I think some of it is true in the trades too...

Thank you Tuna Hotline.... That is a great looking boat..... I really am looking for an enclosed cabin and a flush deck motor. Again, great looking boat, just not exactly what I am looking for..... Any other leads out there would be greatly appreciated!. Thank you

Star, how 'bout some more info on that rig. I'm not in the market, but I'm curious as to who built her and when, some history. I like the layout. Looks like a pretty versatile boat. Twin 671's? What kind of bottom does she have?

this boat has single levers and is the most comfortable boat i have ever run. without our pride and joy of the fleet. pure elegance. no speed demon but handles the east end of Long Island perfectly.

Still looking for fishing boat

I have gotten some great leads that I am following... I am still exploring all options. Looking for boat 34-38'. Lower hrs. Preferably rigged up for fishing. Large cockpit, pot hauler, cockpit controls, good electronics etc., or at least some of those options. Looking to spend up to 150k. I look on all the usual sight brokerage sights daily. Any leads that are not on those sights would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
