1999 Kencraft Challenger 215 CC powered with a 2001 Mercury Optimax 225 Two Stroke. New plugs, wires, and control cables within the last year. Motor has roughly 475-500 hours, only 75-100 of which are salt water. Motor was purchased from a local who had it on a bass boat that never touched salt. Dual axle Pacific trailer just rewired with brand new wheels, tires still have 75% tread. 2 scoop bait tank, 3 kill boxes, self filling live well, windlass, wash down, twin hawker batteries and more. Furuno GP1650F color GPS/sounder/plotter. I've come down a lot on the price so the new owner can have a little extra to have it detailed, maybe some new upholstery, etc. Pretty firm at $16k, but make me an offer. Need it gone. Boat is stored on MCRD in San Diego, so if you'd like to take a look, I will have to escort you on base unless you have access. Please email me at [email protected] or feel free to text at 805-889-4911. Will throw in all my lobster gear if you want it. See the link for pictures. Thanks.

Great looking boat. If it had a 4 stroke I'd be a buyer.
You probably know--but in the off chance you don't--those Optimax engines are supposed to get the same mileage and EPA compliance as the four strokes, with better hole shot. I have not owned one so I don't speak from first hand knowledge re. longevity, stuff like that, but I do know what they are supposed to be.

Sweet looking ride. As a 4-stroke owner, I know that the optimax are a very solid reliable engine. You could easily make potential buyers aware they could sell the optimax in a heart beat to upgrade if needed.
