2001 Scout Abaco 280 Repowered with twin 2009 yahama 225 4 stroke engines with only 705 hours!! Divorce special. My loss is your gain. Price reduced $10,000! Boat is priced $13,000 below NADA value.
This is your chance to take home the legendary Scout Abaco 280! Located in Naples, FL. I have owned several boats and this one is definitely the highest quality. Scout spent years testing and perfecting this hull desing, which has reverse chines that allow it to get on top of the water and have impressive fuel economy for a 28 foot boat. According to the Yamaha bulletin for these engines, this boat and prop pitch, this boat gets 2.21MPG at 33Mph and has a top speed of 51Mph. Most boats this size get around 1.6Mpg. There is NO WOOD in the construction of this boat. It is made with only hand laid fiberglass (not chunks that are blown in) and hi quality vinylester resin. The main structural stingers go all the way from the bow straight through to the engine mounts, allowing the energy from the engines to be dispersed. It is not a "bolted on" transom. Its a true transom. This boat does not rattle or make noise even when in rough seas and is the most solid boat I have ever owned.
Engines recently serviced. Boat is pristene and turnkey ready! 9'6" beam so it can be trailered just about anywhere. Look how the hull shines. Perfect for wife and kids. Full enclosed head for the women. Kids can go inside out of sun and sleep/play electronics. I have pride in ownership and it shows. I have upgraded/replaced the following:
