Searay 290 Amberjack, crossover cruise fish and the most highly optioned boat I have seen for a while.
Searay 290 Amberjack, 2000 Model, twin Mercruiser 5.7L EFI V8’s total 600 HP, major reco on engines in 2014, stainless riser manifolds, closed circuit cooling system, Bravo 3 stern drives , Very highly optioned boat with a list way longer than both your arm’s put together! To decide between cruising and fishing is the big issue here; how about a comfortable cruiser with Westerbeke genset, aircon/heating, spacious cabin with good head room, stand up vacuflush toilet with shower and accommodation for 6 in three doubles, a proper galley with microwave, stove and fridge, pressure hot water, TV/DVD and upgraded C.D stereo, transom shower, swim platform and ladder; just for starters! But then combine that with a full on fishing cockpit including rod storage under the padded coamings, rocket launchers on the targa bar, rod holders around the deck, deck wash, bait board, cockpit work lights, self draining decks and plenty of room in the cockpit for 4 blokes to swing a rod. Now back to cruising, because this boat has been set up for sunbaking, with the wet bar and standard rear seat removed and 3 big interchangeable lounge cushions and cockpit table that make it a brilliant day boat, perfect for some bikini action and It has been tastefully reupholstered and recarpeted down stairs. Now if you are not already impressed how about the machinery and other goodies that comes with this boat. A ‘Jet Thruster’ bow and stern thruster system to make docking so much easier, a ‘Zip Wake’ dynamic trim control system which automatically adjust the trim attitude of the boat underway, 6 batteries, 2 battery chargers, auto fire system, twin bilge pumps, Lowrance HDS 12 touch screen, with GPS, big sounder transducer and radar, VHF and H.F radio’s, remote spotlight on bow, tilt steering, separate Morse throttle and gear controls, recent new hot water tank, electric anchor winch, helm stereo remote and the original wet bar a stern seat are still available; need I say more, because at this stage we are into your third arm. The Amberjack is a serious fishing boat if you want it to be, with 21 degree deadrise and 870 litres of fuel, and this one goes way further than any Amberjack I have seen before. It is not all beer and skittles, the camper cover clears need some attention and the boat is due for its annual out of water session, but the vendor will cover this for the asking price. Ok, I think thats it then, give me a call and get your deposit down, because boats like this don’t show up too often!
