The other model is the Dorado 30 LE. This model is quite different with a cabin in the bow and 10 storage hatches positioned in the floor. The cabin is great for the wife and kids or just to get out of a rain storm. The hull is the same as the Pro-Guide, but features a full inner liner. This boat is very classic looking and more for the person who wants some creature comforts like the built in fresh water sink and electric burner. Customizable with different bait well choices and console choices let you build your boat to your specs.

The SANTOSHA is a 30 Dorado LE, the same boat as the PRO Guide, however the LE-Luxury Edition, has a full fiberglass liner which in addition to providing a much improved finished quality appearance, it also makes possible the copious storage areas that exist and should make the boat quieter running for those aboard. The SANTOSHA has always been lift-kept by the original, and now, the second owner, and never has been bottom painted. This owner has owned the boat since 2013 having cared for and lightly used the boat mostly for local cruising.

What a great "Wash and Wear" boat; easy care, fast, and miserly with your fuel. Boat is Very Clean; shows Zero hard use. A terrific opportunity to acquire a nearly "new boat" for a fraction of new replacement. All of the seating cushions are new 7/2020.
