1985 Wellcraft 23' Nova XL. Has custom built pilothouse/cabin for ocean fishing.

Every boat has a story and this one does too. The owner purchased it in about 2013 with plans to restore and ready it for salmon fishing in the Pacific Northwest. He brought it to Arizona where he added the covered cabin, added electronics and a Kicker, fishing pole racks, and downriggers. He took it out on Lake Powell and Lake Pleasant in Arizona a few times, but three years ago he became ill and passed. The boat had been sitting since.

His widow had intentions to fulfill his dreams for it but recently decided to sell it. The boat is not perfect, but the work he did is very nice. She is working to thoroughly clean it and ready it for a buyer. Everything worked well the last time it was on the water.

It comes with everything they had for it including pet life jackets, very nice raingear, the downriggers, electronics, almost new Kicker, fishing gear, etc.

The seller is working to fully clean the batteries and charge them to be able to start the engines.

They have priced it pretty aggressively to encourage a quick sale. It is pretty nice for a 36 year old boat!

ConditionWhat we know is included in the photos. We do know that all systems worked when last on the water in about 2018. The seller thinks the Merc Kicker is a 2016 model with very few hours on it. Possibly the hour meter in the cabin is attached to the kicker. The hours on the Merc 260 are unknown. The downriggers, fishfinder/GPS were added in 2017 as well. I'm having a hard time finding capacities and speed information. The closest I've seen for speed is about 43MPH listed on a user forum.
