If you are in the market for a rugged, all weather capable boat that can bring back the catch when the others can't leave the dock this custom Samson should appeal to you. Built to order for over 3 decades in Nova Scotia, these utilitarian boats are made extra strong and free of frills. This boat has had two caring owners, the current being a Captain that takes great pride in the boats maintenance and appearance. Power comes from a super reliable Ford 7.3 Diesel with only 346 hours of use. Her full length keel ensures stability and safety, and the beefy spray rails keep you dry in rough waters.  The cabin heater is powered off the engine. The forward V-Berth has plenty of room to standup, has a marine head, and carries the boats batteries/switch/charger.

Many nice upgrades have been made to this Samson including upgraded Sound Down insulation throughout, anti-fatigue matting in the wheel house, Hydro-Slave steering system. Check out the full specs and photos for the full run down on the complete electronics package. The absolutely enormous cockpit can host more fishing buddies than anything else under 35'. This is a rare boat for a rare type of buyer and they don't come much better than this one.
