WTT: Offshore boat for Escape 19, 21, 5.0TA
I know this is a complete long shot, but our interests have shifted and now we're looking for a small travel trailer well suited for boondocking to replace our boat and supplement our fifth wheel. Maybe there is some interest here; I'm also looking at listing it for sell locally. Similarly reconditioned Stripers of this age with new electronics seem to vary for $20-30K.
2000 Seaswirl Striper 2300 walk around. Volvo Penta 5.0Gi (fuel injected) 250HP, runs well. Unknown hours, but the previous owner estimated around 500 and we've added maybe 20-30. Volvo SX outdrive with a couple four blade (15 and 17 pitch) props, including a stainless one (the 15). Spare outdrive as well.
All through-hull fittings replaced, with stainless below the waterline, engine tuned up and new fuel pump, water pump, bellows, and gimbal bearing in the last year. Brand new Garmin 94SV depth finder/ GPS/ sonar and Sitex T-760 radar on Seaview mount. Modern Kenwood head unit with new marine speakers, brand new Tempress Elite high back seats, and anti-slip flooring. Fresh paint (5'er job, but much nicer than 18 year old gelcoat) on the outside of the boat, including bottom paint over two-part epoxy primer.
Has a cabin that can supposedly sleep two, with a small sink and brand new portable toilet. Lots of storage.
Trailer has a new hubs, new sealed electric drum brakes on both axles, new galvanized wheels and new tires (~150 miles on them), new EZ-Latch coupler, new jack, fresh wiring, and new winch.
Ultimately this is a nicely refreshed 18 year old boat, with a lot of life left. It isn't a perfect boat, but hard to beat when new/modern models like this go for six figures. Clean TX titles for both boat and trailer. Lots of little things fixed and/or replaced that I am likely forgetting in this post, and a few small things that could still be done (new upholstery in the cabin, though it isn't horrible) to complete the refresh if they bother you. Turn-key and ready for summer.
Looking to trade for an Escape 19, 21, or possibly a 5.0TA.
