(SOLD) 1985 Post 43 Sport Fisherman

This impeccable 43' Post has been lovingly cared for by a father then his son, both knowledgeable boatowners, for the past 10 years. Their efforts show in its shining gelcoat, flawless brightwork, spotless interior and extensive equipment list. The cockpit is expansive and features beautiful teak covering boards, transom door and custom teak swimplatform. Although it has a Lee fighting chair, Rupp Outriggers and tackle center, Reel Love has never been fished. The salon is very roomy with an open mid-level galley, single head and two staterooms. The centerline queen in the master leaves adequate room for mobility and ample storage, as well as a roomy head with stall shower. The entire interior is finished in teak. All this plus only 1700 original hours, oil changes every 50 hours and a Northstar 961 Chartplotter! If you are looking for a solid convertible style boat in excellent condition, look no further. The boat is in the water and ready for your sea-trial. We are located just minutes from the Portland Airport and 90 minutes north of Logan in Boston. Call us for a personal showing!
