Looking for a used Downeaster in the 24' range. Single outboard with pilothouse. Budget? Yes definitely. 40k for the right boat with a sweet motor.

Thanks

Frank

That looks like a great little package for a good price. I've admired that one for awhile.
You'll have to squeeze in a head if it's on your wish list

Thanks Eastporter. I've been thinking about inquiring about that one but regret the lack of trim tabs and minimal equipment level. But its very close.

I just installed a little Garmin GPS fish finder, with a shoot through transducer. They are really easy to install, if space to swing a wrench is tight, and you can do it in the water

vaeatern--- give Paul at Atlantic Outboard in Westbrook, CT a call. Paul is a Eastern and Seaway dealer and has a few used downeast outboards on jis lot. Paul is a great guy and very easy to work with. If you call him tell him Capt Jay Mulligan referred you to him. good luck, Jay [toolmaker]

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. Will follow up on all of them. I saw that 24 Lobster in person in Yarmouth. Wish it didn't have the pilothouse door but otherwise a nice option.

What a great site- right? Guy is here on his first post asking for a little help and by his 3rd he has half dozen options. Come back and update us VA!

I posted it on this site a few days ago. Take a look at the photos and let me know if you would like to see it. Just finished winterizing and shrink wrap today.
