2001 Boston Whaler 28 Conquest 2005 Twin Mercury 250 Verado (C)XLVER Engines (531 Hours) No Trailer Location: Hilton Head, SC
This 2nd owner 2001 Boston Whaler 28 Conquest powered by 2005 Twin Mercury Verado 250(C)XLVER Engines (531 Hours) is a strong cabin cruiser for use on those summer time family fun days and deep water fishing trips. This vessel has recently had solid cosmetic and mechanical upgrades to bring it into 20/21 season by the seller. He has since decided at this point in his advanced boating days to let it go and join the Freedom Boat Club. Please review the walk through video as it will fill gaps of detail not posted. Reasonable offers will only be considered with an earnest deposit on a Pre-Purchase Order to present to the seller.
Brokers Notes: As noted in the video the port windshield wiper is not working and the bow rail has a kink in it. The port motor Mercury Gauge is starting to fade and the starboard side spreader light needs to be replaced. The original Mercury Optimax 225 engines (one engine blew) were replaced with the newer Verado models purchased from Offshore Performance Specialty Inc at which point the seller went all in on everything else noted below. After parts, labor and materials, the seller is somewhere between $35K to $40K knee deep in cost on his mission to upgrade this boat which he purchased in 2011. There is no trailer and no outriggers as they were stolen. Clean titles in hand and taxes are paid up to date.

Manufacturer Provided Description (abbreviated): The Boston Whaler 28 Conquest, more than 30 feet long, has a 10-foot, four-inch beam and a 20-inch draft. Helm and companion seats sit in the spacious cockpit. The stern seat folds flush with transom for optimum cockpit space. The galley features a refrigerator, sink with faucet, stove and microwave and the dinette converts into forward V-berth. Freshwater shower, sink and electric toilet are included with the head compartment. Boston Whaler introduced the Accutrack hull in 1996. This system combines the smooth ride of a deep-V design with the dry ride provided by strategically placed chines. A Boston Whaler has a distinct style. The distinctive Whaler 'smirk' - a reverse chine and forward spray rail - catches spray and redirects it beneath the hull. In a following sea, it pushes the bow up for better steerage and improved safety. Thoughtful layouts put amenities such as prep stations and controls within easy reach. Seats can handle hundreds of pounds in static loads. Coaming pads are scaled to catch people above the knees. Helms have unobstructed views. And fishing areas provide optimum freedom of movement.
