You may find one cheaper...
...but not one in better condition or better equipped.

This is probably the trickest, highest tech 251 on the West Coast. This was my present to myself in February of 1999 for my 40th birthday. It did not go in the water until July- after it was all rigged up- so it really is only a little over a year old. I treat this boat like it was my child. I am only selling it because I am getting a new Luhrs 360 convertible. This boat is in excellent condition and only has about 285 hours on it. It is kept in Phoenix, AZ most of the year in a covered parking space and spends much of its time in fresh water lakes. I have it in San Diego for the summer and it has proved itself as a great fishing platform. It is very economical on gas which allows me to run fast to the next spot in search of fish or fly past everyone else on the way home. The boat still looks brand new. In fact, just last week the guy at the fuel dock asked if it was new.  With all of the boats he sees, I would say that qualified as an expert endorsement. People at the dock always ask me if it is a brand new boat. I still have the original plastic on the cushions in the cabin. It even turns a lot of heads at the lake. This boat has been meticulously maintained and serviced. I take it to my mechanic (who was an 8-time offshore racing world champion) and say "fix anything you see wrong or that you think might go wrong". I don't like problems offshore so I have him check everything for reliability. I have gone through and upgraded and replaced everything I could think of to make this boat "bulletproof"! When you add up the cost of all of the options on this boat, you will figure out why it is really a bargain. Don't buy one of these boats without checking mine out. I have over $90,000 invested in this killer fishing machine. It has top of the line electronics, a full fold down tower by Pacific Yacht Towers (very high quality), twin 150's and virtually every option. My original plan was to keep it for 3 to 5 years, which is why I put so much money into it. What can I say? I got the big boat bug. Once you see this boat, you will realize what a real bargain and how truly exceptional it is. Oh yeah, by the way, once you have driven one of these boats with twins, you would not even consider a single motor boat.

These are from the day the tower was done.
