Man, every couple years a boat pops up on BD, that I get excited about. This is a steal, anyone looking at a Parker should go look at this thing. You will save money on fuel, have a better ride, and save money upfront as this thing is now priced cheaper than many of the 21’ Parkers I have seen lately. 10’ beam on a 26’ boat is bad ass.

I looked at this boat, but am holding out for twin diesels. I'll probably kick myself for not buying it. It is in great shape , runs great, very stable boat.
Plus I need to sell mine before getting another

Well done. Twins are nice to have when you need it, but it is a pain to maintain two... and expensive.

Great looking boat. Very versatile!

    Piratepetejr...being a Penn Yan officionado....you need a 4 blade prop...if you want more speed and efficiency. I have played all the games with piwer plants and props ecetra. I had a 81 33' sportfish with twins.
    You have to think of the tunnels the same as a jet pump, have to fill the tunnel with blade just like a jet impeller.
    I started with 18" 4 blades, had cut to 16" with a flat end on the outside, had them cupped and wa la. Had twin 210 hp diesels, 12 knot cruise, .95 to 1.05 mpg, went to twin 330hp 454's and a 27knt cruise with the same mileage.
    Good luck with her.
