Here is a rare 1978 Penn Yan 26 Sport Fisher Twin in VERY nice shape! 26'9" length; 10' beam; draws only about a foot and a half or so of water, and props and shafts are protected in the molded-in "tunnels" (i.e. "Tunnel Drive"). Thesec boats were built in upstate NY and prized on the Great Lakes for their stability in the rough chop which is characteristic of the lakes. They are well-built heavy boats- not very fast, but made for fishing, with a large wide cockpit.This baby was repowered with twin short-block Chevys, for reliability, ease of maintenance and power. They purrr like kittens. Fresh water cooled. Runs and drives PERFECT! Structurally the boat is solid. No soft spots or rot anywhere on the decks or transom (a rarity!).Comes with custom 2006 triple axle trailer- 12K lb. GVW. I just installed new brakes and bearing buddies (which is why one wheel was still off when I took the pics!). Tows great- come and tow it home! This is a really nice trailer!Boat has 6KW Kohler generator.
Central A/C (works perfect)
Working electric fridge (may be dual voltage...not sure)
Stainless steel windlass and anchor.
