28’ True World Marine 288, 2004 Walk Around Pilot House with Yanmar Diesel Power and Bravo III I/O for sale in North Beach, NJ
Here is one of the most prized 6 pack charter fishing boats with a real walk around short pilot house and a cuddy cabin with enclosed head. The Yanmar 6LPA STE diesel is amidships and has an Aquadrive jack shaft to the Bravo III outdrive which eliminates the inconvenient aft engine box, leaving the cockpit wide open for all around fishing. If you fish, this is a must see boat.
Diesel economy is tough to beat with a 28 mph cruise at 8 gph diesel burn. These are clean, no nonsense boats with simple easy hose off, clean cockpit and deck surfaces. Equipped with a salt water wash down, two fish boxes, live well and plenty of rod and tackle storage. The bow rail is oversized for secure, all the way around, fishability.
The short pilot house with side curtains and soft back is equipped with a full helm and seats for two, similar to a center console, but with a full windshield and hard top to give you full protection.
Below the simple cuddy cabin has an enclosed head with a sink. A small galley area is equipped with a refrigerator and a microwave. A couple of vee berths and a table fill in to sleep three very familiar people.
True World engineered and built these boats to handle offshore sea conditions as well as to be very able in the near shore drifts and flats.
Everything that makes these boats superior fishing craft also makes these beauties fine family beach cruisers.
This is a well maintained boat in excellent condition. Just over 275 hours on the Yanmar is hardly broken in. Canvas and upholstery is in excellent condition, you do want to see this boat for yourself.
