The Outer Reef 26 Trawler-Tug $9,000 !!!!!

*
<table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width:100%;" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"><tbody><tr><td style="padding:2.4pt 0in 0in;">The Outer Reef 26 Trawler-Tug was one of thirty (30) built by Outer Reef Marine of Florida between the mid-1970s and mid-1980s. She is of trawler design with a displacement hull and a ballasted keel running aft on centerline to a protected prop and rudder secured at the bottom by a supporting strap. The exterior was designed to provide a tug-like look with: a false stack on the cabin top (for storage); aft mini-sundeck; wheelhouse with inside helm; berth forward and down; saloon/galley aft and down with port side head; and aft cockpit. Her hull is solid, hand laid-up fiberglass with a fiberglass/balsa core composite deck. The hull interior is lined with Sintra plastic, and the cabin aft bulkhead was stiffened with Klegecell. She is not fast by todays standards, but will do a leisurely six knots all day at a very economical burn. Of the thirty (30) Outer Reefs produced, some have found their way to Canada and the Great Lakes. At 7,500 pounds and only 9 wide, she can be loaded on a trailer. *She has a 2 6 draft.

RE: The Outer Reef 26 Trawler-Tug $9,000 !!!!!

The boat is located in Ortona FL, the one that is in about 55 miles from Ft Myers.

Just off the Calossahatchie River in our hurricane hole area.

Those that have cruised the river will know the Ortona Lock, about a mile away.

River Forest hurricane storage is a couple of blocks away .

Google,, Turkey Creek Moore Haven FL 33471,

Or 1080 Helm Lane Moore Haven FL 33471

Not the boats location but a block or two away.

Since the boat is easily trucked , even a Lakes or Left coast boater might be interested.

IF I didn't have so many projects on my plate I would buy it for a 1-3 month flip and perhaps clear $10-15K.
