26 Strike Center Console Cuddy Cummins Diesel
$47,500 Turn Key Boat

• Strike spared NO Expense when building this boat, NOR Did I creating the ULTIMATE FISHING MACHINE!


• 
I was a certified boat mechanic for over 20 years and I meticulously care for my boats, cars, off-road trucks (Toyota Diesel 40 and 60 Series Land Cruisers) airplanes, motorhomes etc...


• 
The only reason I am selling this boat is because I am in the Market for a Strike 29-35 or similar... If anyone is selling a like boat in that range, I would greatly appreciate any info!
*Notice the boat, console, deck and cutting board is dirty, covered in fish slime, lobster bait chunks, squid guts, sea kelp, drink bottles, fast food bags, coffee cups, etc... in most photos because I am actually out using the boat the boat! But she is cleaned spotless inside and out with lots of soap and fresh water (engine too) every time I use her...


•

with 30-inch draft (prop pocket)
-1987 Cummins 5.9 6BT 210 CPL 0742 with 350 hrs on complete rebuild done at 2900 hrs

-19 x 18p LH Four Blade Nibral Prop (New in Aug 2014 ACME CNC) Amazingly SMOOTH! Comes with old prop, which is in perfect condition, just not as smooth since it's a standard Michigan Screw, but a GREAT SPARE! Note: If no one has ever tried the ACME, believe me they are amazing and well worth the money. I had a very slight (annoying) vibration at low idle speeds (usually in the harbor) and the suicide knob on the helm would rattle. It was the first thing I noticed was gone with the ACME screw.

THERE ARE NO SOFT SPOTS, NO DELAMINATING AND NO BLISTERING ANYWHERE ON THIS BOAT/DECK/HULL!!!!!!!


THE BILGE IS CLEAN AND THE STRINGERS ARE ROCK SOLID AND DRY


THE SHAFT TURNS TRUE AND SMOOTH WITH NO VIBRATIONS


She has two 4D Marine batteries and,


Guest battery charger


Perko bronze seawater strainer with clear watch glass and easy access for removing and cleaning the stainless steel screen. This thing is AWESOME and saves you from clogging up the heat exchanger when doing a lot of fishing or lobstering IN THE KELP FOREST (ON THE REEF WHER THEY ALL LIVE!)


Two aft deck hatches for easy bilge access to all components


Full frontal and side engine access through console/seat hatch


Two rear console hatches:


One for full access to rear and sides of engine, seawater strainer, turbo, heat exchanger clean-out access plate (front and back) wash down pump and it's filter


Two for full access to rear bilge pump, bait tank pump, all thru-hull seacocks, trim tab pump housing shaft and stuffing box


For what it's worth, this boat has EASY ACCESS TO EVERYTHING so you can get to it and take care of it all and do your preventative maintenance as that's how and why these boats were designed since 1977 and they still make this EXACT SAME HULL TODAY! visit strikeyachtsdotcom.

Thanks for the comments guys, very cool of you all! I'm just ready to move up to something a little bigger, but I'll fish her until someone else buys her. They will not be dissapointed.

I am soooooo wanting to get offshore for this killer bite right now but workload is heavy and when I do get a break, it seems it's when my wife works and then I have my son to take to and from summer camp.

However, I am going fishing on Sunday and I'm gonna fill the bait tank with three scoops Saturday night so I don't have to wait in line Sun morn!!! Hope to have some pics to post!!!

    Hello: been out of town working in Tucson. Last week an boat north from Shelter Island last Sunday and headed up north to the hot bite. Scored some nice Bluefin up to 58#. I was so close to Oside I docked her there for the week as I was too far north and just got an Uber home to Encinitas and had to get ready to travel for work.

    Going offshore tomorrow for Tuna out of Oside and then running her back to her slip on Shelter Island. Call me to have a look sevensixzero sixonetwo threefivetwoeight...
