This is a 1 owner 23' Nova XL Wellcraft, 1986. Fully loaded including updated electronics Garmin (Depth, `range`, chart plotter GPS Map 740 with Lake Washington and Puget Sound Sim Crds), Standard Horizon (Matrix AIS+ GX2150) Radio, Kenwood remote control stereo with upgraded base speakers and electronics done in 2013/2014. Brand new trailer in 2015 galvanized state of the art. Big block 454 rebuilt 2010 (151 hrs.) with Merc cruiser Alpha outdrive new at the same time. Total of 400 hrs. on hull.
Currently running a precision propeller; its a 14 by 22 C RH 4 blade Apollo propeller; changed to this in 2009. I have the original three blade prop but I went to the four as it gave me more torque and was more efficient for the engine. I have also updated the hub kit.
The boat has the full compliment of fenders 10" X 24" black with black lines. All docking lines are also black. It has a full compliment of; life jackets, dock power cables, cleaning equipment, travel covers, storage covers, crusing canopies, fire extinguishers etc. Cuddy Cabin sports a port-a-potty. It is off the water now and winterized. I also personally wax, polish and oil the teak every year.
A new custom built cover for Bimini top and custom made travel/dock cover in 2012; redone interior in 2002; full boat cover for storage purposes which is always on the boat when its in the temperature controlled facility; All maintenance records back to the day it was delivered to me, July 1987. The cockpit has a well-designed control panel with151bucket drop away seats for the operator and front passenger. The boat is stored in a temperature controlled facility when not in use (year round); the only time its on the water is when its being used.
This boat is in premium condition and is one you definately want to own. You ask why am I selling this.....fiially, after all these years we've decieded to purchase a cruiser that we can spend extended time on the water. I want this to go to someone who appreciates what this Welcraft boat is and hopefully will take care of it as I have. If you wanted to buy a classic corvette and missed itthen this is your opportunity to get the water version. Its been in salt and fresh water and meticulously cared for.
