The long story:
Well cared for meticulously maintained flat bottom cargo hauling river boat. Was originally built and put into service for one of our Alaska State Troopers back in 1990 for Yukon use. This is a vintage set up that has been tried and proven for many years in the Yukon hunting moose. It has no problem carrying two moose and camp gear. It sits on the top of the water like a mosquito.
The 115 hp Suzuki is a two-stroke oil injected and has been well cared for and comes with many extra parts for long river trip success & security. In 2022 a new canvas top was fabricated and installed, and the top surface deck was restored.
The trailer is an all-terrain heavy-duty unit with capability of stacking a canoe over the flat bottom or lumber. This is a true workhorse if you’re trying to build a cabin out in the middle of nowhere or bring back a couple of trophies at the same time. It is well thought out in many different facets for being self-sufficient and is very peppy. Will do 40 miles an hour all day and will maintain a solid 20 while fully loaded. The construction is heavy duty fiberglass over heavy duty, marine plywood. Any minor delamination has been professionally repaired.
If you are interested in a vintage workhorse vessel, this is a must see. Never wrecked and always cared for. This year new tires rims and Jack were installed. Also comes with a vintage 9.9 hp mercury kicker that is also in excellent condition for its age and starts every time. It is a mid-ship helm station and provides the ability to open the top of the canvas while standing at the helm for maximum visibility while underway… it has a small removable windshield that can easily be installed to redirect rain and bugs while underway. Truly a well thought out vessel for the Alaskan back country.
Has one inboard 35 gallon fuel tank and comes with an additional 12 gallon mollar fuel tank, oars, anchor, and line, ropes, depth finder and chart, plotter, navigational, lights, cable, steering bilge, pumps, and additional auxiliary’s (untapped), trim tabs, VHF, fully operational gauges, 4 flip down swivel seats, over 45 ft.² of storage area, a very traditional Alaskan Panga, if I’ve ever seen one.
She is ready for another 30 years of service. Truly a self-contained set up. It is currently appraised at $26,500, for sale for 23,500. Boat Works of Alaska is a Suzuki dealer and if an interested party preferred to have a modern four stroke outboard we can provide that for an additional price. It is supported by a very high survey which is a testimony to the condition of this vessel however, I don’t feel our current market can’t support that so I am asking $23,500. New trailer bearings, new registration, new license plate & tags.
Built in trailer second-story modification for carrying canoes lumber or extra gear comes with all attachments and accessories for full functional use. If you are a current boat owner and are looking for a new experience without outstanding capabilities, you do want to check out this vessel! It is truly one of a kind. I’m in the boat business, and I’ve never seen one like it.
If interested, we can meet in big Lake and give it a rip. While the boats in the water we can inspect the heavy-duty trailer, it’s a little scaly, but in no way is it structurally compromised and is overbuilt for its load. Case in point. (When we put 3000 pounds of gear in our boats and our poor Trailers were never designed for it), not a problem with the set up. Includes independent survey and current courtesy marine examination from United States Coast Guard auxiliary.
I bought it with the expectation of doing the Yukon, as he had so many times, but I’m better at restoring boats than getting out of town… let alone all the way to Yukon. So it’s ready for somebody more adventurous than me, God knows she is worthy. Thanks for looking!
