1986 Grady-White Sailfish 252 Fishing Boat in Lawrence, New York

Stock #190495

1986 GRADY-WHITE SAILFISH 252 POWERED BY A SINGLE EVINRUDE 250-ETEC

THE ENGINE IS A 2006

The boat was originally sold with twin 150 Evinrudes.

The single 250 ETEC that's on it now delivers just about the same HP and torque that both of the older Evinrude C Drives did.

Evinrude E-TEC is the best of both technologies. The technology is considered 2-Stroke, Direct Injection. Evinrude E-TEC in fact, has cleaner exhaust emissions than a 4-stroke, it produces 5 to 10 times less Carbon Monoxide (CO) while idling or trolling.

Here's the convenience of having one motor: one motor- fuel bills are half of what twin motors would cost.

The current owner went over this refit with Grady White directly before he did anything

GW documented other 25' GWs with a single 250 on it and discussed the bracket and engine mounting dimensions.

Grady White went so far as to provide optimum propeller specs for the new motor based on the LOA of the boat.

The Seller used Baldwin Harbor Marine to rip the boat apart and replaced or repaired just about everything on that boat that concerns electricity, water or fuel.

HE REPLACED THE HULL STRINGERS FROM THE CABIN BULKHEAD BACK TO THE TRANSOM.

TRANSOM IS ALSO REBUILT!

New windows in the cabin, new steering, new windows in the eisenglass, all snaps replaced.

REBUILT THE WINDLASS with new anchor, new spare anchor,

Fusion radio, Raymarine A78 chart plotter with radar and depth finder, new vinyl bolsters in the deck area, new LED lights in the cockpit....I can keep going.

2016 Custom aluminum fuel tank put in the boat

*No shore power

*YES OUTRIGGERS COME WITH THE BOAT

This boat will be the best thing you buy and enjoy years of fishing!
