1979 Island Hopper 30 Charter Fishing in Miami, Florida

Stock #205067

Excellent boat to start a charter or commercial fishing business.

Lots of open space to operate around this boat that can be used either for commercial fishing, charters, party boat, or just personal use.

This boat comes with a hydraulic pump that can run either a which, windlass, bow thruster or anything you like. The pump is driven by the engine and the reservoir is on the cuddy cabin.

Other upgrades are the Bennett trim tabs, GPS unit, stereo, and VHF. The engine is mated to a direct drive transmission, twin disc 507 with a 2:1 ratio, a 2' shaft, and 4 blade propeller.

There is a massive seating area in the middle with cushions, and at the bow, you have a cuddy cabin with toilet and storage.

The tower doesn't have a second helm station, but it could be added if the next owner wants to. From there, you have an uninterrupted view around the vessel, very helpful to spot schools of fish when out on the water.

This boat is a very versatile platform to either do business or use it as a personal boat.

Information On Condition

The batteries are from 2019, 2 AGM 8D Batteries, as well as the battery charger. The boat was updated in 2017.

Electronics are working and in good condition. The head is clean and working. The hydraulic pump is in good condition and working.

There are 2 small soft sports around the access covers to each side, otherwise solid all around.

Approximate boat location: Miami, Florida
