"Sports Series Custom Layout and 12' Beam With Very Low Hours!"

Coming up to this boat you could tell that it was a well cared for boat. The gelcoat was clean with a natural shine to it and looked like it was ready to set sail as soon as you step aboard.

The first thing the seller and I talked about was the fact that this was a 12-foot beam as opposed to...more

2005 Gibson 42 SS House in Wheeler Lake

Stock #103896

Coming up to this boat you could tell that it was a well cared for boat. The gelcoat was clean with a natural shine to it and looked like it was ready to set sail as soon as you step aboard.

The first thing the seller and I talked about was the fact that this was a 12-foot beam as opposed to the standard size 14-foot beam. The sellers' understanding is that this boat is either built for one of the Gibson's or a top executive. It is designed to fit in a 14-foot slip with no problems.

This boat is also a SuperSport Configuration with the single-level upper deck and no step down in the cabin to make the boat much more maneuverable for you and your passengers.

You have a master cabin in the aft of the boat with a walkthrough window to get to the back deck. The carpet is a heavier grade of Berber carpet and shows no wear.

The galley is laid out nicely with a Galley Maid 3 burner stove and Oven. The full-size fridge freezer is a GE

This boat is powered by twin Marine Power 6.0L engines connect to V-drives. As I joke with the seller that this was enough power to bring a houseboat up on plane, he just smiled and said "it gets closer to being on a plane than you would imagine"

If you are looking for an affordable liveaboard or just that place to get away for the weekend this is a great choice to give you independence.

Information On Condition
