2017 Custom Aluminum 47 Shrimping Skiff Fishing Boat in Westwego, Louisiana

Stock #191504

This Shrimping Skiff features an all aluminum hull built from the ground up by the Owner. The skiff is setup for a two-man crew with the capacity to go on 4 to 5 day shrimp harvesting runs. It is powered by a Caterpillar 3408 Diesel, with its 8 cylinders delivers 480 HP.

The skiff is propelled effortlessly by the Twindisc transmission turning its 32x#2 Nibral Alloy Propeller (Stainless Steel, Brass, Nickel).

This combination delivers an efficient and economical fuel burn. The fore cabin is equipped with two bunks bed for relaxation after a hard day on the water.

The cockpit houses a small galley with sink and granite countertops.

The pilot station is equipped with a swivel captain's chair with guidance provided by a complete Lowrance Navigation System which includes radar.

This boat is designed to harvest shrimp and it is completely set up for that purpose. The net frames were built in accordance with the most recent changes to harvesting laws.

The all aluminum frames are 20'x20' dropping 72 foot nets; (20' caulk line,11' sidewing and 30' lead line) with ease by the hydraulic winch system. Once the shrimp are hauled up they can be released on the deck and fed into the twin holding tanks on the aft deck. The tanks have a massive capacity for ice, water and shrimp.

This boat was built by a shrimper in 2017 and designed to provide the greatest experience in that endeavor. From its Caterpillar Diesel power plant to the comforts of its cabin, every consideration has been given to provide a great day working the seas in the search for shrimp.

After a long day harvesting, a hot shower awaits and then you can relax in the cabin. Prepare dinner in the galley that is fitted with granite counter tops. sink and stove.

Get some well deserved rest in the berths and get ready to go at it again.

Information On Condition

The skiff is in good condition mechanically. The engine gets maintained at its recommended intervals. The hydraulic winches and drive chains are regularly lubricated to provide trouble free use. The nets are in excellent condition as this is their first season of use.

The skiff is equipped with a Northern Lights 16Kw diesel generator and a portable generator is included as a backup. There a 3ea 3500 gph bilge pumps, one in the engine compartment, one beneath the foredeck and one beneath the aft deck. A submersible pump is also included for pumping water out of the shrimp holding wells.

The boat is scheduled to be hauled out at the end of the season and repainted. The previous paint job was not done properly by the "skilled craftsman" as the primer was allowed to sit too long without the paint being applied. That is why the paint is peeling.

The hot water shower is located on the aft deck.

Oil change on Cat Diesel regularly
