It would be hard to find a more well suited boat for the rigors of day in - day out, big time sportfishing than the Haphazard. Built originally as a simpler version of the sled she currently is, her owner and crew have put the time, expense and commitment in to allow her to be transformed into an absolutely rigged up fishing machine. They have done a good job of staying ahead of the ever evolving curve of industry upgrades in technology and systems and the current product speaks for itself. Their schedule of preventive maintenance, interval service and willingness to do what it takes has allowed for nearly seamless performance and opportunity in their offshore pursuits over the years. This is a great boat with a great program and a ripe opportunity for someone to step right in and make it their own.

WIth C-18 ACERT 2100hp, sonar, seakeeper, star link, ice maker, huge cockpit and mezzanine, comfortable interior layout, captain friendly bridge and electronics, a great ride and many, many recent upgrades, there is not much more you could ask for. Come see this rig and I think you'd agree...
