    Many thanks for the kind words, yes they only made 6 or 8 of these and dont know why they didnt do more.
    Later on they made a couple more and have one of those that is why I am selling this one as replicating this engine & trans wise.

    What's up Grant? Nice ride. Thanks for the great service in the past few months. For those that don't know Grant, he runs Sea n Skl Volvo Penta in Costa mesa, pretty much the only place on the west coast that will hook you up on VP parts and and is eager to talk about yout engine and give solid advice regarding your situation. I needed an EDC panel for my 2 KAMD 300's that were barely readable anymore, vintage early 2000's, and he blew me away with what he could sell it to me for. I'd bet this boat is impeccable.

    Beautiful boat. The fact that you chose to completely rebuild a KAD43 vs repower with a D4 says it all to me about the reliability of the 43. What’s the interior layout? Is this basically a 262 flybridge with an enclosed bridge?

    If you want a diesel Skipjack and are sick of being inn the weather then you really need to check this boat out as where are you going to find a boat like this for the money, or spend $55k on one and another $45-50k when you find out everything is worn out?
