The rub rail is stainless with a white backing for a very yacht like look.Custom Hell's Bay signature towing eye on the bow stem.

Renzetti aluminum pushpole holders (pushpole not included in sale). The steering helm is a polished wheel with knob from Ungaro Marine similar to those found on Viking yachts. The custom made switch panel has matching white toggle switch boots with polished nuts for the bilge pump, 3 gallon freshwater washdown, livewell pump,airstone,navigation lights,compartment and deck lights.The trim tab switch is also custom from Eddy Marine. 12 volt accessory plug  receptacle.

Console mounted VHF radio. All interior compartments were awlgripped to avoid mildew and the two aft compartments were modified and raised to allow better drainage.

The engine has approx 700 hours and all maintence records (Boat Center Ft. Lauderdale) are included. The prop is a Michigan Wheel Ballistic stainless.

      This skiff has been garage kept and meticulously maintained and is the finest skiff I have ever owned. I'm selling it because I also have a 16' Whipray Classic and am getting a larger boat for offshore fishing. The original purchase price was over $63,000. I am asking $43000 for this beautiful skiff. Pictures to be posted later today. I can be reached at 954- 646-2757.

    Took her out fishing last weekend. She is definitely going to be hard to part with. Poled for reds on Sunday and fished in 200' off Key Largo for Sailfish on monday.

    I don't subscribe to the notion that name brands mean anything. For instance if I buy a shirt from Walmart and a shirt from an expensive "name brand" retailer I will wear the shirt that fits the best.

    However, this boat is beautiful no matter what name you put on it. I know very little about boats but I know artwork when I see it.

    If I had the extra scratch I would run to your door.

    Congratulations on the boat and good luck selling it.
