    I'm selling my 1970 24' Skipjack Flybridge. Anyone who's ridden in one of these knows it's the perfect trailerable boat for socal waters. This particular model has a shallow V hull that planes easily and gets great mileage. It's easy to spot paddies from the flybridge and there's plenty of deck space for fishing as well as plenty of cabin space for naps on long offshore trips. The retractable top is nice because you can throw jigs from the bridge while coming up on fish. I had this posted a few months ago, but loaned it to a friend for a few months so he could see if he really enjoyed private boating. The boat ran great and was just at Catalina two weeks ago. You can buy this boat today and be chasing bluefin below the coronados tomorrow. Some notable specs:
    • New engine in 2008, new starter, alternator, intake manifold, throttle cable, raw water pump, carburetor, distributor, distributor wires, spark plugs, exhaust manifolds, exhaust risers, and exhaust hoses in 2016 (~2.5 mpg in calm waters with the boat fully loaded)
    • Lowrance HDS 8 sonar/chartplotter and Furuno radar
    • Two 36 watt LED spreader lights and Scotty 2500 line puller for deep-water lobster hooping
    • New VHF radio and antenna in 2016
    A boat is only good if you can get it in the water, so I fixed up the trailer in February, adding vented disk brakes, new brake lines and a new brake actuator, a new jack, bearing buddies and a spare tire.

    Asking $7,000. Interested in trades for a minivan, saltwater fishing gear, or landscaping work.

    Replacing drain lines, routing a drip system, installing a low retaining wall, bringing in a bunch of paver sand to level an area, transporting 10k pounds of tile, grout and thinset. Able to help with any of that?

    Great deal! I don’t have a mini van, and trading fishing gear would be counter intuitive... but the work things you mentioned sound like things I can handle. I got a diesel pickup and a flat utility trailer that are always ready to work.

    That's correct. 2.5 mpg running in really flat water, around 2.2 mpg in normal offshore conditions. Boat planes around 16 mph, I like to cruise around 20-22 mph. I believe the tank capacity is a little over 100 gallons so you could theoretically run over 200 miles in a day at cruising speed. Practically, I've run 16 hour offshore trips and never worried about running out of fuel.

    I did a major engine rebuild in 2016. I pulled the engine, stripped it down to a long block and replaced most of the components. The boat used to get 1.8 mpg with a holley carb, but I put in a edelbrock that gets far better efficiency and is easier to service.

    Shoot me a text or call if you have any other questions. (310) 483-6253. Thanks for your interest!

    Bump. Seems like everyone is shopping for boats this weekend. Have half a dozen people trying to come see it. Let me know if you're interested asap. I still think $7k for a ready-to-run 24' flybridge boat with refurbed trailer is an unbeatable deal. I paid more than that for just my trailer.
