THE JOLLY ROGERS48' Hi-Star Sportfish 1987

$ 134,000

"If you're on the hunt for an exceptional sportfisher that won't break the bank, look no further than "The Jolly Rogers."

With over two decades under the current owner's belt, this boat has received the tender love and care it truly deserves. I've proudly served as the Captain and manager of this vessel for 15 years. The owner's commitment to maintaining peak condition is unwavering - an open checkbook and a credit card are at my disposal for any necessary upgrades or repairs, no questions asked.

Step on board, and you'll immediately witness the extensive list of upgrades and enhancements. Virtually every system and major component has been replaced with brand new ones. She's been meticulously customized, making her truly one-of-a-kind.

The engines and generator are not just up to date, but they're in top-notch condition, backed by a stack of invoices. Regular oil samples consistently come back perfect. At her last yard visit in 2022, new bottom paint and underwater lights. All running gear has been meticulously maintained and fine tuned. This boat is adventure-ready, having spent most of her life exploring the Bahamas out islands, the Florida Keys, and Dry Tortugas.

Once you step foot on her deck, you'd never guess her age - she's as spry as a much younger vessel. She undergoes a thorough survey every five years, always passing with flying colors. Docked in freshwater for 13 years, she's given a freshwater flush after every trip.

As a bonus, the price includes an 11'4 Boston Whaler CC with a Mercury 25 hp outboard, boasting a mere 10 hours of use.
