Looking for a twin inboard diesel between 28 and 32ft. At least 9' or 10' beam. Well maintained clean boats only.

Tower would be nice, but can add later.

No outdrives.

Skipjack 30, Topaz, Tiara, Henriques, Blackfin, Pursuit

Don't want 28 Carolina Classic, 28 Albemarle, or 28 Bertram. Too much deep V. Would consider a 29 Blackfin combi though.

Thanks

Not really looking at 28 Carolina Classic or 28 Albemarle, too much deep V. Would consider a 29 Blackfin combi though.

Thanks
What price range?

Im the one selling that Carolina Classic. It's a solid boat and a good price. I'm very motivated to sell. I will be moving out of state at the end of the month.

"Too much deep V"

Don't think I've ever heard that. But if you're concerned about rocking and rolling on the drift.......The CC28 mentioned for sale here does not have a tower. I doubt it's a concern on the drift at all on that boat. I have a tower and I'm used to the pendulum effect occasionally. Just bump it gear...........no problem. The trade off with that hull is your ride home and reduced dental bills to replace your fillings and your non existent chiropractor bills. :)

Yeah, the rocking, rolling, and added fuel costs of a deep V. I'll be adding a tower to whatever boat I end up with. I guess I don't see the point of a 24 degree deadrise in a 28 foot boat for our waters and/or style of fishing.

On the Alblemarle 28 I minimized the snap roll with the factory recommended spray rails. They work will to reduce the roll. FYI

You should be able to make a deal on a Albemarle 290 Express Fisherma (2008-2011 are the model years) for 100k.

11' beam and twin yanmar or cummins power.

Thanks guys, another thing on my list is a tower, so I'm looking for a boat with a tower or a boat that can fit a tower.

I'll go take a look at the CC28, Shamrock 290, and Rampage 30 this weekend. The Albemarle 290 is interesting, I hadn't noticed that boat. I will keep my eye out. Henriques 28 is on my short list, but I can't find any out here.
