The Sea Ray Amberjack series of boats are a fantastic blend of express cruiser speed and creature comfort with a cockpit built for the fishermen (and fisherwomen) in the family. Equally at home cruising lakes and seas entertaining some friends or going out to the favorite spot for some grouper fishing, the Amberjack does both with style and ease.
Entering the cockpit of this boat, the first thing you notice is the wide open space provided for 4-5 or more fishermen to go about their business without stumbling over each other. The transom and gunwales are topped with beautifully maintained teak and the cockpit drains are covered with teak lattice. Overhead is a radar arch featuring 8 rocket launcher style rod holders. The transom has fittings for four more rod holders plus there are two built into the gunwales and an extra single rocket launcher on the port side of the arch. Put together you can carry as many as 15 rods out to sea on this fishing machine.
For those times when the trip is just a pleasure cruise, the transom features a fold-out bench for three passengers with hidden cup holders too. There is a rear-facing seat behind the port console. With the helm seat and a front-facing console seat to port, the built-in cockpit capacity rises to six, yet there is still room for folding chairs. All of the upholstery is original and in great condition. The bimini over the consoles is new for 2018 along with the canvas covers over the bow skylights.
The helm station features full instrumentation, VHF radio, GPS, and depth/fishfinder. There is a storage compartment in the helm console. The entire steering system from the wheel to the outdrives was replaced in 2018 with a full hydraulic system.
Pulling up the cockpit floor you find the engine and electrical compartments so clean you could eat off of them. The pair of 75-gallon stainless steel fuel tanks are brand new in 2018, custom made to fit the space. At the time of tank replacement, the engines were removed and fully serviced. Three automatic pumps keep the bilges dry. Three batteries power the electrical systems of the vessel and a new battery charger keeps them topped up from shore power. While the boat does not come with a generator or air conditioning, there is plenty of room to install them. There is a ton of space under the floors for storage.
Entering the cabin, directly ahead is the v-berth that comfortably accommodates two sleepers and which converts into a dinette. To port is the galley, featuring a two burner stove, fridge, and ample storage space. To starboard is the head with manual pump toilet, sink, and a drain in the floor to allow showering. The floor is painted in non-slip paint.
The vessel also comes with a full cockpit cover and a barely-used tandem axle trailer.
The vessel appears in excellent condition for its age, far better than expected for a 30-year old boat. The upholstery is clean, smooth, and fully colored as it left the factory in 1988. The wood trim on the gunwales and transom has been well maintained. As per the owner everything works, with the exception of one or two of the helm gauges.
