Is this the same boat? It just showed up on Yachtworld today. Anyone know anything about the Pleasure Craft PX7 powerplant? The boat looks real nice.

Strange. The boat was listed yesterday but no longer there today.

do you know what it translates to?


I think it fits pretty well, even better for a Diesel Duck

This is an amazing price for this boat. She looks to be lightly used with few modifications/butcher jobs. These are relatively small PH boats as they were built with side decks on both sides. But they are solid cruisers with 7000 lbs of ballast giving it a nice, soft ride. Fuel tank is athwartship beneath the PH sole which does two things: First, because it's in the center of the boat, trim does not change as fuel is burned. Second, with no saddle tanks, it frees-up the engine room for equipment. Some have installed a Splendide W/D in the ER.

Engine selection is the only possible demerit I can envision - Pleasure Craft is a marinized IH engine. These IH engines have a good reputation in commercial OTR use, but are few and far between in marinized applications. Some frustration is to be expected when/if the time comes for major service.

Someone will get a very nice, capable, true trawler for a steal. When you do, join us at Willard Boat Owners Group https://willardboatowners.groups.io/g/main
