2004 FishRite Explorer. 20 ft, 66” inch bottom with 10-degree dead rise. Marine Power – 375 HP 6.0 coupled with a Hamilton 212 (pump and impeller in great shape). This was my factory demo boat when I was a rep. I spec’ed this boat myself. Heater/defroster, dual wipers, Livewell, insulated bait box, wash down pump, bow storage, auto bilge pump, 4 speaker stereo w/ 1000w amp, docking lights, interior lights, dual step swim platform, Garmin Striker fish finder, seats on custom aluminum boxes (one is dry storage, one is an awesome cooler), storage/travel cover (showing its age but still water tight), full canvas top with side curtains (very roomy inside), sand trap, dual batteries with switch, closed cooling (self-draining) with low point drain and 54 gallon fuel tank. Exterior paint is not as nice as it looks in the photos. Has some minor scratches, scuffs and dings. Still a damn nice-looking boat.
BONUS: custom built hard sided, flip top, waterfowl blind. Bolts on in minutes with the help of a couple friends. I put it on in October and take it off in February. Hunt ducks in the warmth and comfort of a heated blind or take it big game hunting on the river or lake and use it for a camper! Still runs over 50 MPH downstream with the blind on and full of gear! Blind is turnkey with emergency cover, regular camo and snow camo that all just snap on.
Comes with a 2005 Tandem axle EZ Loader trailer with oil bath hubs, steel bunks and side guides with UHMW, ratcheting tie downs and Drotto Boat Latch.
This is one of the better running stock boats around. 54 mph downstream, 49 mph upstream. Also, very fuel efficient when not running hard. Between the speed and the 10-degree bottom, it runs super shallow (yes, as shallow as the cheaper lightweight boats) when on plane. Handles like a dream with the 66” bottom. It has 355 hours on it. Well maintained, oil changed every 20-30 hours. I am the original owner of the boat. I sold it to a friend in 2005 and bought it back in 2017. The boat has been used for its intended purpose, with well over 100 trips to the river. The bottom shows some rash and has one decent dent that the other owner put in it. It has no negative effect on the handling. This boat is a sportsman’s dream and would run you around 100K to build new. Only selling to buy a new boat. I am happy to keep this amazing boat if it does not sell, so please don’t bother with lowball offers. I am happy to give a demo on the river for serious buyers only. Offered at $48,500.00 with blind, $45000.00 without blind. Please email me through Craigslist with questions. Thanks for looking.
