WTB: 23-28' boat.
« on: July 08, 2020, 11:46:53 AM »
Hi all, Looking to purchase a boat to use in the sound, and off the Washington/Oregon coast. Would want it to be trailerable.

Been looking at older trophy's and glasply's as that's what typically fits my price range, but I am open to anything.

Would like a small cuddy with a porta potty minimum to keep the wife happy, and prefer a hard top/cabin boat.
Really would like to find a trophy 2860 or 2459, without the Alaska bulkhead, but like I said, I'm open to anything!

Budget id like to keep around is 15k, but that can push up slightly if needed.

The ciearra classic isn't a bad boat and there not to outrageously priced. But bang for the buck its hard to beat a trophy.

I have looked at a few ciera classics, the 2558 is a decent looking boat for sure, and would probably do what I needed it to do. I just really like the small cabin on the 24' trophies, with the larger dance floor.

those fly bridge boats would sure be handy when packing out crab traps though, nice spot to store em lol

I sure wish we still had our trophy, But I have came to the conclusion that there is no such thing as the perfect boat, unless you have three or four of them.

Yeah something like the first 2. I like to start my search here, because ive had such good luck buying stuff from fellow hunt-wa members, and those push my budget slightly. (Which isnt a big deal for the right setup)

There is a 21' trophy in kettle falls thats a sweet little boat, but im holding out for one slighlty bigger.

Be really careful with motors. A lot of boats that size in your price range are going to need an expensive repower.  You donít want to be halfway across the bar and have your motor crap out.

Arenít the 90ís Bayliners the ones where the hulls would separate?

I was looking at them years ago and remember sticking to 2000 or newer.

Yep, I just dealt with this. After a full year I am almost done with a fuel rewire, repower etc. And just as I am finishing, I likely have to sell!!

They were built much better after 2000 or so, the early ones did have a problem with rotten stringers.
Every boat with wood stringers has a problem with rotten stringers eventually if not cared for though.

The glasplys had fiberglas stringers after 78. Im slowly being pushed that direction.
