It’s not just a boat, it’s a lifestyle!
Since we’re moving north soon, our Seaswirl can now be seen at Nation’s Best Boats in Key Largo – ask for Carl. (305) 451-2500 | 101851 Overseas Highway | Key Largo, FL 33037 | Nation’s Best Boats
Why We’re Selling
We’re heading north, we will have no place for a big saltwater boat 🙁
We bought this as the second owner from Boats Direct in late 2014 to replace our trusty Maycraft, and we’ve been 100% happy with it ever since. We love overnighting on it out in the backcountry or at Nest Keys, it’s nice to have the place to yourself and watch sunset from the upper deck, then the tranquility of waking up at anchor with nobody else around.
Works extremely well for diving also, and while not as good as a center console for fishing, still works very well for reef bottom fishing or offshore trolling.
Looking to run to the Bahamas? No problem. Cuba? No problem. Dry Tortugas? Also no problem. Plenty of fuel and water capacity to get you out, spend a couple days, and head back with a good reserve.
Maintenance and Inspection
All maintenance performed by Mike White at Keys Mobile Marine (904) 449-1901 – feel free to call him and ask about the maintenance history. Fresh 100 hour service on 12/3/2016.
Vessel was fully inspected and surveyed by Scott Austin All Marine Survey on 8/30/2014 when we purchased her. You can read the survey report by clicking this link (PDF) – Survey Report. If you have the boat surveyed for yourself, we highly recommend him.
Vessel was safety inspected by the Coast Guard on 11/3/2016 and passed with flying colors (“This is the easiest boat I’ve done yet”). Safety inspection report is with the registration paperwork in the vessel, I will scan it and attach it here when I get a chance.
864 hours port, 876 hours starboard on twin Yamaha 225 4-strokes as shown in the engine control module diagnostics reports below. Note that gauges have shown about 40 hours more than the engines have on them since we’ve owned the boat, I never bothered to try to sync the gauges up.
I think the cruise RPM is around 4100 but I always cruise at 3700-3800 at around 26mph and 1.3mpg.
The engine history data exported from the Yamaha diagnostics system can be seen by clicking these two links: Port Starboard.
This also shows how many hours the engine was run at each RPM level, as well as various diagnostics. We can plug the computer in when you come to inspect the boat and show you fresh data as the engines run.
Starboard tilt electrical system rebuilt @ 800 hours with new motor, relay, switch, and hoses.
CruisAir Air Conditioning/heater. We use the A/C at our dock frequently as we’re lounging on the boat, and occasionally while we’re out on the hook.
Kohler 5kW quiet generator.
Full Eisenglass surround with zip-up door in EXCELLENT shape. Always hand-cleaned after use, and stored indoors in our condo – no sun yellowing. As you can see from the photos below, you can hardly tell that they’re not actual glass when they’re installed. This is huge for extending your comfortable boating season in the winters, and with the full surround up you can barely tell that the motors are running at cruising speed. Rollup door in the back makes for easy entry, and rollup center window in the front allows for air flow.
We’ve come topside several times from diving
We put ~$10k in new electronics in 2015:

Note that the small Garmin 545s shown is not included, I just have it on the boat currently as a second depth sounder since I like redundant systems.
