20’ Skipjack
Custom 20’ Skipjack Pilothouse Center Console Walkaround in excellent condition with 2005 Johnson Marine Aluminum 2 axle trailer. Boat resides in a permanent slip at Monterey harbor. This one of a kind beauty was custom built in 2013 at Port San Luis, California. The modification was done on a 1970 Skipjack Open Fisherman hull, however the boat is considered a 2013 Wilcox Center Console Skiff (built by Brad Wilcox), since that is when the rebuild took place. Boat had a full, extensive Marine Survey performed before purchase in 2018, by Richard Avant Jr. at Port San Luis Marine Survey and was given a clean bill of health. Put several thousand more dollars in customizations and upgrades after purchase in 2018 at Moss Landing Boat Works. Comes with Raymarine Hybrid touch fish finder, VHF radio, stereo, live well tank, custom electric for downriggers etc, fishing rod rocket launchers, and much more.

Unfortunately, the 2006 Yamaha 150hp 4 stroke outboard blew on me this year. Still don’t understand why, as it was regularly serviced at Monterey Bay Marine and Salinas Valley Marine and had been just serviced with clean bill of health February 2022. However, the diagnosis I was given after it stopped working on me was, “Top cylinder of piston isn’t moving, powerhead is done, zero compression.” They think the water passages got corroded inside, things got hot and seized top piston and broke rod.

Other than needing to be repowered, this boat is in immaculate condition and truly is one of a kind. If you know Skipjacks, you know how seaworthy these vessels are and with this custom build, it’s the ultimate ocean fishing boat. My loss is your gain. I am not in a hurry to sell and am not interested in low ball offers. If I don’t find a buyer, I will just hold onto it until I can afford a new outboard. Serious inquiries only. Send me a message if interested. Many thanks!

    Instead of selling you can get a rebuilt powerhead and swap over the good parts. I did that on an outboard of mine over the winter. Just an idea instead of a full repower.

    uh....
    Do you know of another 20 Skippy center console that you could buy for less? Find a roached out Skippy and see if you can build it for less. Maybe you would have it ready a couple years from now?
    Not that it matters. It is a cool boat, and maybe a good deal to someone.

    30k gives you some pretty good options for a center console that’s turn key.

    Boats have been at a premium for the last 5 years and going up due to lack of inventory.

    If someone has a spare motor laying around and likes this Skipjack it could be a great deal.

    The boat looks beautiful, good luck with the sale

    How did the 150 power it?? Did it seem under power I’ve been wanting to convert from IO to outboard bracket and see most people use 200hp on these but was wondering if the 150 was strong enough
