Description

Overview:

"Big Iron" was custom built in Key West by the #1 Boat Company which is known for building super tough, great performing, economical boats. They are primarily used in the charter and commercial fishing businesses where they have earned a reputation for quality.  "Big Iron" was originally built as a recreational fishing, Bahamas Cruiser and has only had two owners since new.   She is powered by low time 8-92 Detroit Diesels and sleeps four below with a galley, head with large shower, and large helm sitting area.  Super stable, quick, and rigged for fishing, this boat would make a great charter fishing boat, or Out Island Fishing/Cruiser.

New head system, new A/C, fresh bottom job in May 2014, three new 2000 Gym Rule bilge pumps and switches and high water alarms.  Engines rebuilt in 2007 and include 3-blade 25" stainless steel propeller with spare 3-blade Nibral propeller.

Cabin:

Opposite the helm to starboad is the cabin entrance with the galley refrigerator and freezer outboard of the stairs.  At the base of the stairs is a sink, stove, coffee maker, microwave, and storage.  Across to Starboard is a settee/ bunk beds.  Forward is the head with an oversized shower and a V- Berth in the bow.  There are two A/C units, one is a 16,000 BTU unit aft which is new, the other is a 5,000 BTU unit in the forward master which keeps the cabin cool even during hot Florida summers.

Deck:

The foredeck is open with a full bow rail, custon fender holders, complete tow rail, and an electric windless forward with controls.  It can easily be accessed along wide side gunnels.

The cockpit is huge!  It has a frigid Rigid Freezer, DC plugs for electric reels, Tuna Door, and a large Lazarette Door with scuba tank storage and room for plenty of other gear.  There is a custom storage system to hold an inflatible boat in the cockpit, and a gin pole that has been removed will come with the boat.

Helm Deck:

The Helm Deck is a large raised area forward of the cockpit that can be enclosed and air conditioned by a 6,000 BTU A/C located in a storage box port aft. The Helm Deck can also be opened up to feel the fresh Ocean Breeze.  The Helm itself is located to port and has great visibility. The large helm seat can easily fit three people and has a refrigerator underneath.  Across to Port is a dinette that can comfortably seat 6, with a manually operated table that can lower to make a third bed.

Electronics:

Furuno Nav Net with C-Map and updated NEMA 1983 operating software

2013 Furuno 1870S Combo using NEMA 2000 operating software

2013 Simrad AP60 Autopilot

Mechanical:

The engine room is under the helm deck and has excellent access.  There are two Detroit 8V- 92's which have approximately 650 hours since Major Overhaul.

  • Dual Racors
  • Air Sep Filters
  • Morse Controls
  • Delta T System w/ Air Intake DC Motors and Air Box- Air/Water Seperator
  • 1-LP AC to DC Converter located in the engine room powering 2 LP direct current outlets located each side of cockpit (port and starboard) under the gunwales to power the electric reels.
  • The Generator is under the deck in the forward part of the cockpit.  It is a Kilo Pack 15KW installed new in 2007.  It has just under 1100 hours on it.  The generator has a dedicated battery for starting and recently had a valve job performed and all of the belts replaced.
  • Extra fuel tanks were installed to increase the boats range for Bahamas cruising.  She has 2 300 gallon fiberglass tanks below deck and 2 200 gallon tanks above deck in the forward part of the cockpit. The main engines suck from the main tanks they are gravity fed with a simple valve to "drop" the fuel from the storage tanks into the main.
Fishing Equipment Available:

2 Penn 130's with LPs (electrics) with 2 spools each-2 with wire and 2 with Power Pro for day time deep sword fishing

2 9/0 duels with curved butts

2 spools with wire (wahoo rigs)

2 spools with Power Pro for swords or whatever

2 6/0 Duels with Power Pro for Tuna etc

Also included is a bunch of spare parts, rigs, lead weights, deep drop lights, a spare LP motor and more.

The Big Iron is rigged with an LP converter to go from 110v ac   to either 12 or 24 volt dc. The LPs run faster with 24 volts. What do you think is the best way to deal with this stuff? If a boat buyer is a fisherman, this equipment is important; otherwise, it's not.

The fishing stuff really should go with the boat-it all fits, but if a buyer is not interested, we can remove it and sell separately.
