Custom Bimini Express. Recommissioned in 1995 and again in 2005. ready for fun times!.

This beautiful boat is basically a custom boat using the Seabird hull as the framework. Seabird is the predecessor company to Phoenix.

The vessel was recommissioned in 1995 with inboards removed and Armstrong bracket added and then updated again in 2005. Original recommission survey is available for review. It is designed as a family boat that can be taken offshore, has a tower with full controls that folds down for trailering, and has two fuel tanks midships 275 gallons, rear 125 gallons. for a total of 400 gallons, so you can take her pretty much wherever you want to go!

There is also room for 12 scuba tanks as the seller used it often for diving. They stacked them on foam tank holders.

She has twin rear doors for easy diving access. She can sleep four between the V-berth and with the two drop-down tables in the mid-section that also easily seat 8 people.

She is equipped with electric shifting and SeaStar steering, so you'll enjoy the way she handles, and she cruises at about 32 mph with about a 50 mph top end.

She is currently powered with twin 1998 OX66 Yamaha 250s. She also comes with a full boat cover to keep her out direct sun when not in use.

The seller's family grew up on this boat and she has been well taken care of, now she needs a new home!

ConditionThis boat appears in nice condition, and only needs a few more touches to finish her off. There are a couple of areas on the upper helm seat that shows some signs of wear, but doesn't necessarily need to be worried about right away. The owner confirms the Yamaha 250s have approximately 370 running hours. The two Raymarine E12s will need to be re-screened for about $1,000 estimated cost.
