This legendary Phoenix SprortFish/Convertible has only 508 engine hours since rebirth 2007. Only the good stuff was utilized; twin Yanmar 240 HP turbo diesel with matching transmissions, Yanmar gen-set, dripless shaft seals, Halon fire suppression, cockpit shower, stainless rails, cockpit shade cover, convection oven and cooktop, downriggers, power windless and tankage.
Experienced sport fishers regard the Phoenix 29 as the boat that picked up where Bertram left off in this class. Draft was reduced 2' 4" with the use of innovative "prop-pockets" while reducing shaft angle for more fuel-efficient propulsion.
Low freeboard and enough hard chine to reduce rocking while drifting or at anchor. The deep-vee hull comes to plane handily with enough attitude control to maintain a sea-kindly ride in a rougher sea.
Recently used lightly as a sport-fishing charter, is currently owned, operated and maintained by a licensed master captain.
Current owner upgraded the electronics package with fully integrated Raymarine GPS/Fishfinder, 24-mile radar, autopilot with remote cockpit display and controls. There is also a recently installed three bank battery charger. Oh and underwater dive lights.
Sleeps 6 owners and guests in a forward V-berth, convertible settee and a convertible dinette.
The V-berth is forward with storage below and hanging lockers port and starboard.
Aft to port is the convertible dinette area followed by the enclosed head with toilet, sink, vanity and shower.
Aft to starboard is the convertible settee that converts to an upper and lower single berth.
Aft again is the spacious galley area with storage beneath. Up a couple of steps to the spacious cockpit suitable for entertaining or fishing.
A port side ladder provides access to the flybridge.
Engine room access is excellent due to 3 flush deck hatches in the cockpit.
The boat presents above average for its age with great "bones" for the discriminating non-angler that would enjoy a fresh pallet for a redecorate.
It's currently set up as a serious sport-fisher. There are rocket launchers and rod holders and fishing amenities surrounding the cockpit together with a large live bait tank on the swim platform. The interior spaces reflect the spartan fishing theme with just the necessaries.
The bilges and mechanical spaces are impressively dry and free from any grease, grime and film. It's most impressive feature is it's newer high-dollar twin Yanmar diesel engines. Check the video to observe smokeless starts and running.
The seller says everything on the boat is in working order. to the exclusion of the Yanmar Gen-set needing a service after faulty vents allowed water intrusion. The vents have been corrected.
Bottom and running gear were inspected and serviced, new paint was applied during last years annual haul-out.
There is a small tear in small side panel of the bridge enclosure.
