Thumbs up Sold-Nearly new Dingy and outboard

Hello all from the former owners of the Prairie Trawler “Stray Cat”. We have moved to land once again and were fortunate to sell Stray Cat to someone that will love her and loved our updates as much as we have. Now we have our nearly new dingy and Honda Outboard who also need of new a owner. We have settled in Stuart, FL because we fell in love with this beautiful town.

History:
The dingy was new in November of 2015, Highfield 9'6” double aluminum hull , flat floor, with a built in bow/storage seat and regular “drivers's” seat, last used in June of 2016. Weighs 93 lbs, and it includes a never used cover and wet/dry bag and anchor. Always stored on davits. Less then 10 hours of run time.

Honda 5HP, 4 stroke outboard with 3 gallon fuel tank acquired in the spring of 2015. Again with less than 10 hours of run time. Honda was the chosen brand because I could start it ..have a bad back..
Asking $3000.00 for both.
Located in Stuart, FL

We can be contacted at [email]bacchus42@mac.com or text 941 223 3665. Donna

Donna, would you sell dinghy and motor separately? I am not in the market but asking the question in case someone out there might want one or the other...especially since the boat could be considered underpowered and begging for a 15hp. Also pictures would help since Highfield is not as well known as other dinghy makers. I did google them and look like very nice boats!

Good luck with the sale!!!

PS...I used to own P29-55...the last one built. What a fantastic little boat!!!

How was the dinghy stored on the boat? Weaver brackets on swim platform?
Do you have those brackets or other system?

I own a Prairie 29 and am very very close (Vero Beach).

Our dingy was stored on custom substantial SS davits off the back of the boat. There may be a photo on our site..if not, I will try to post one. The dingy was level with the stern of the boat and so not to block the view off the stern. It is currently on the davits of a boat friend in Stuart. If you are interested in seeing it we would be happy to drop her and take a spin. There was a comment that the boat was under powered with a 5HP outboard, however the boat is not supposed to have more than 8hp because of its light weight. We still have the harness for hanging. This boat has sturdy built in hanging points. Send an email if you are interested. bacchus42@mac.com Thanks for your inquiry, Donna

Thanks for your question re: the power of the outboard. This boat only weighs 93 lbs and our engine was fine with her. The manufacturer recommends no more than 8 HP. The reason we purchased that boat was her weight, an aluminum bottom, double floor and a flat walking surface on the interior, and the ability to use a smaller engine. Neither of us was getting any younger did not wish to struggle with weight problems. The out board weighs 58+- lbs and for us, matched our abilities. Donna

We just bought the exact same boat, otherwise we would have jumped on this! I spent several weeks researching RIBs and Highfields are definitely highly rated and compared closely to ABs. New owners would be very lucky!

Dingy

Thanks all who inquired about our dingy and outboard. They have been sold and headed to a new home...and we hope that a little 4 year old boy will be happy with her.....and have many new adventures.
