1988 Shamrock Predator 20 Fishing Boat in Voorhees, New Jersey

Stock #226038

If you're a serious fisherman in search of a solid, no-nonsense platform literally made for fishing, your ship has come in!

This 1988 Shamrock Predator 20 was completely repowered in 2018 with a 351 Windsor! The owner saw the opportunity to turn a very solid hull with full keel (tracks straight and true at any speed) into a dependable offshore fishing platform that he personally designed for fishing.

The workmanship is evident throughout this boat where every feature is designed to be practical for fishing and to ease maintenance efforts. From the custom freshwater engine flush connection on the stern quarter to the remote oil filter placement and the removable decking designed to completeky reveal the engine and running, you appreciate that the owner was a very thoughtful craftsman who took his time to ensure he'd be spending his time fishing rather than struggling with accessing the engine for maintenance.

With a cuddy cabin, custom hard top, porta-potti, Humminbird Helix-5 GPS/Depthsounder/Fishfinder, a VHF marine radio, LED cockpit and deck lighting, rocket launchers, outriggers, and more rod holders than I could count (10 actually - I never ran out of fingers), a custom bait station and a below-deck fishbox, and a custom trasom bracket that can support up to a 50 HP outboard for propulsion redundancy, you'll have everything you need for you and your buddies to go out and catch fish!

The owner invested more money into the repowering than he's listing the boat for, but there's a good reason for that. He spent more time and money than he should have because he was creating this platform for his own use and wanted everything to be right because he intended to ship the completed vessel to Puerto Rico where he would use it in the open ocean. However, after he completed it - but before he shipped it - he was offered a boat that was already in Puerto Rio for a price he couldn't refuse.
So now he owns 3 boats, but only needs one. (He's also selling a 1998 ProLine on POP Yachts) He's willing to sell at a loss because he doesn't want this boat so sit unused and he knows he spent more on it than it's "worth" when you look at its book value. So his loss is quite literally your gain!

Also included with the boat is a 1988 galvanized Harding tandem-axle trailer. The trailer has hydraulic surge brakes, but they are presently disconnected for simplicity.

If you're a hard-core fisherman like the current owner is, you owe it to yourself to take a good hard look at this Shamrock and consider the amazing value being offered!

Information On Condition

Cosmetically the vessel looks like you'd expect a 1988 fishing boat to look. It wasn't stored indoors for 20 years, but it's obvious that it wasn't abused either. It was used to catch fish, and with that in mind it's pretty clean for a 32 yeard old fishing boat. (What I'm trying to say is that your wife will hate it (unless she loves to catch fish more than you do), but your fishing buddies will love it!)

The hull, engine, and running gear are all in very good for a boat of this age. Shamrock's 100% composite (no wood) structure mean there's no rot, the the recently replaced 351 Windsor with Velvet Drive and Morse Controls is better than OEM!

The trailer is in very good condition and has LED lights and new tires.
