The vessel is a production composite fiberglass sport fishing vessel equipped with two diesel engines and two diesel generators. The vessel is owned by a company, the vessel was previously owned by the prior owner of the company. The vessel has reportedly changed ownership (sold and repossessed) but the dates of the change of ownership were unclear. The engines were reportedly rebuilt 10 to 15 years ago and the generators are reportedly 10 years old. The vessel was reportedly last hauled and the bottom painted three years ago. The vessel was inspected in its slip. The engines were briefly test operated. The vessel was not taken on a sea trial or hauled for survey. The vessel exhibits passive maintenance. The vessel appears to be basically structurally sound. The vessel is questionably suitable for use in its current condition. Upon completion of the recommendations and a successful sea trial, the vessel should be suitable for its intended purpose as a coastal cruising and sport fishing vessel.
Overall Summary: Satisfactory





The actual cash value is the value that our research approximates the selling price of this vessel should be, at the time and place of our inspection. The actual cash value is best determined by a thorough market search to determine what vessels are available on the market, followed by negotiations between the interested parties. Consideration is given to vessel’s condition, geographic location, published listings and guides, comparable sales and listings, and market conditions. The new replacement value is the cost of this or a similar, new vessel, comparably equipped. The investment is the reported investment including purchase price and significant upgrades. No values include maintenance costs, storage or tax.

C & V Form Key: All systems are rated based upon their appearance, ratings include: Not examined, Not applicable, Faulty, Marginal, Satisfactory, Good, Excellent.


1. Provide federally required, approved and current distress signal flares.
2. Clean the fuel filter bowls and fuel as necessary. There is growth in the fuel filter bowls, more significantly to starboard.
3. Assure that the vessel has at least three functional electric / automatic bilge pumps that are suitably sized for the vessel.
4. We encourage installation of a high water alarm.
5. Provide and install covers for the electrical distribution sub panel in the engine room, the sides are not covered.
6. Provide and install a faceplate for the electrical switch aft in the engine room, which currently has no faceplate.
7. Free up and prove all of the engines’ through hull valves functional, they were stiff and were not moved.
8. Provide and install covers for all of the batteries’ terminals to prevent accidental short circuiting.
9. Determine why there are disconnected battery cables near the starboard aft engine room battery, assure there is no liability associated with the unused cables.
10. There is a wet bronze “spot” to port of the centerline aft in the engine room bilge near the main engine through hulls and strainers. This may be a fastener through the bottom of the vessel which is corroded away, determine the cause and address appropriately.
11. Remove oil and water from below the starboard engine. Eliminate any weeps or leaks.
12. Eliminate water below and outboard of the port engine. Eliminate any weeps or leaks.
13. Free up the stiff or seized through hull valve forward of the port engine, likely for the port generator.
14. Cap or plug all unused through hulls including one to port aft in the engine room and one in the lazarette bilge.
15. Replace the broken mirror located forward in the saloon, this presents a personal injury risk.
16. Assure that the vessel has suitable main AC over current protection. Comply with ABYC recommendations.
17. The HIN is illegible on the transom , modify to comply with federal regulations.


1. There is a hose connected to a through hull just above the waterline to starboard aft in the engine room, the hose is unused and is currently plugged with a wooden dowel plug. Modify to prevent any leaks through this hose.
2. The electrical system uses welding cable for battery cable. Welding cable is prohibited by ABYC recommendations. There was no damage noted to the welding cable. Monitor the cable and replace if / as necessary.
3. Address the corrosion on both engines’ starboard forward motor mounts. Eliminate the cause of the corrosion.
4. The starboard generator’s hour meter was running continuously, even though the generator was not running. Address as desired.
5. Eliminate the air bubble in the flybridge compass.
6. Address miscellaneous cosmetic deficiencies including scratches on the port hull side aft. The vessel was extremely dirty, clean the vessel as necessary.
7. Paint is failing on the foredeck, address as desired.
8. There is water damage below the window support in the saloon and galley, eliminate any water leaks and repair the damage as desired or as necessary.
9. The plastic shower enclosure in the master head is cracked, replace as desired.
10. Miscellaneous aluminum components exhibit corrosion including hardware on the tower and backing plates for stanchions and deck hardware. Address as necessary.
11. Remove wire nuts used at electrical connections for the waste components in the forward bilge. Replace wire nuts with butt connections or terminal boards. Comply with ABYC recommendation.
12. There is minor corrosion and salt crystals about the rudder ports, address appropriately.
