PRICE DROP AS OF APRIL 25 to $8900

is a 1985 Arima Sea Ranger. In late 2010 I repowered with the 2011 model 90 hp TLDI. Gives you the fuel use and lower noise level like a 4 stroke, but with the weight and torque of a 2 stroke. Plus you don't change oil. Currently running a pretty flat prop be cause we weig it down a lot when diving. Lower unit recently inspected and resealed. New solas hub installed

Hull has been slipped previously but now is on a trailer. Had to let her sit in the slip for a while during family crisis and she got a bit crusty but scraped it off and then redid the trim and tilt. Also has new seat posts and the non skid was all painted with Kiwi Grip

In 2010 the upholstery was replaced inside. I also added new wiring, new VHF, new gps (a small garmin 76) and new color fish-finder and some lights inside. Have replaced the hatch since then with a new Bomar unit too. Has bait tank that is removable and adequate anchor tackle. Will also come with life jackets and fire extinguishers. Ready to go IMHO. Has tube for Bimini to and vynil windows but current top is at end of life span.

The hull ain't the prettiest, but she is still solid. The low floor gives you a ton of room. Moderate v planes at low speed so you can plane even when it's a bit rough. The new non skid is solid and holds well.

I have a new boat and wife wants it gone. Wish I could keep it instead. ANew boat is in SD Bay and it would be a lot cheaper to dive la jolla from mission bay from the ramp than to spend the gas to get my big boat all the way that far north. This is a great boat. Pics will be tomorrow after I hose her off.

Text me at six one nine two one eight six four seven five. Or PM me here on BD.

Here are the pics. She's a little rough after 30 years, cant hide that. Pics show aome of thw scratches and the bent trailer fender.

Probaly 400 hrs or less on the engine. Was at 300 plus last summer and no real use since last major service.

Probably have $18,000 in acquiring and repowering, re outfitting her. View attachment 640142

I can't believe you haven't sold this.
When I got my arima the guy had people calling from other states wanting to by it.
As I was there making a deal with him.
Free bump

Me neither. Paid 6500 for it with old motor and and old electronics because I figure hull was with worth $6k by itself.
