I hate to let this boat go but it is time to sell my Sea Ark aluminum deck boat. It is powered by a 150 hp Johnson and a tandem axle trailer. This is the ultimate boat for Texas Lakes and Rivers. It has the draft and durability of a john boat, the layout and deck space of a pontoon and the speed and agility of a ski boat. It is very wide and stable and listed as 23’ long but with the motor and outboard bracket (all aluminum no wood in transom) it is 27’. It has plenty of room and can accommodate older people with mobility issues because the deck is flat and on top of the hull so there is nothing to have to step over. It is easy to tow because it is light weight and has a very low draft so it can get can get in very skinny water.

It is also a modified v hull design so it can get up on plane with ease and is perfect for pulling tubes and skiers. It is built like a tank. Full aluminum hull that's a minimum of 3/16" thick and braced like crazy under the deck inside the hull. On a calm lake she moves over 50mph and can get out of the hole pretty good. This has been a really great boat but my father in law sold his farm and I no longer have a place to keep it.

Please note, I am selling this boat for such a low price because it does need new carpet, upholstery and to be serviced. The squirrels got into his barn this winter and decided to tear up the upholstry and carpet pretty good. The hull is in great shape though and the motor has great compression and never had any issues, but has been sitting for over a year so it will need a new impeller. It is a two stroke which means you don’t need fancy equipment or a masters degree to work on it and the parts are fairly inexpensive. This is your chance to get a great boat and if you are willing to do the work yourself you should be able to get it ready for the summer for a bargain. I am not taking offers at this time and will be fixing it myself and putting it on boat trader if it doesn’t sell. I just figured if someone wanted to buy it as-is and put in some sweat equity they could get a great deal on a boat they might otherwise not be able to afford.
