Dude,
Seen that boat i think and never seen a Horizon before w a FB so I'm suspecting it was an add on. Good bones if a survey is positive but a rough looking boat. Corrosion in the ballast or bad blisters could ruin this "deal" but if all the unforseen stuff is good yes a good deal. Being repowered is a good sign.

COMBAT PATROL VESSEL - $290000 (Tampa)

FOR SALE: DEMILITARIZED COMBAT PATROL VESSEL


Unique opportunity to purchase a military vessel that is designed and custom-built of advanced composite fiber for special operations forces. It has the structural integrity to be dropped from a C130 aircraft and deployed in combat by the U.S. Navy SEALs.

This is one of only two vessels designed and manufactured by Revenge Advanced Composites LLC, former tenant of seller. The first vessel was successfully procured by the government for $5,620,210. Due to a management and investor fall out, Revenge Advanced Composites went out of business in 2012; and through a lengthy tenant eviction process we ended up taking possession of the second vessel, with a clean transferable Florida Certificate of Title in hand.

View Original Contract

The engines and weapons systems were removed prior to our taking possession of the vessel. It was originally designed for twin MAN R6-800 Diesel engines and could be refitted with the same for approximately $130,000 or a less expensive propulsion system as an alternative.

This multi-million-dollar one-of-a-kind military vessel is now available for purchase for only $290,000. Reasonable offers will be considered. The United States Navy has been formally and properly notified of the sale of this vessel on the open market as a liability safeguard due to the proprietary and stealth technology associated with the watercraft.

The vessel is located in the Tampa Bay area, and is available for inspection only upon addressing security issues and vetting of any prospective purchaser. Note also that the sale and transfer of ownership of this watercraft is contingent upon formal notification to the U.S. Navy, Homeland Security, U.S. Customs Agency, U.S. Coast Guard and the local law enforcement agency of the purchaser.

Serious Inquires Only.

Atomic anchor... blows hole deep enough in ocean floor to create mooring forever!

Funny thang! Moments after posting here I went back to CL to copy the link to add to my TF post... so you all could visit to see other photos of it. It's primary photo was still on CL but copy was not and a "flagged" notice was showing. I went off CL for a few more minutes and when returning I could find hide nor hair of the ad or picture I posted here.

Ya think DT Jr. bought it for his personal toy! lol

The $54B is for aircraft carriers and nuclear submarines.....not trawlers or even fast trawlers. The enemy....they are out there!

Yes, we have enemies, but we already spend so much. Seems crazy. Didn't mean to get political. My bad.

There is an opportunity to reduce that concern and save your and MY tax dollar. Report to your nearest Naval military yard and request a 50 caliber with 'Marine Mount'. Do your part, be involved with your neighborhood reserve marine protection detail.

Couldn't they at least include an operable, legal 50-caliber machine gun with the boat?

OK, that looks like it would be a ton of fun. Likely pretty efficient at trawler speeds but....

I can see a lifting crane for the dinghy on deck, a few lounge chairs....

Al,

Fisher did offer a trawler for a while in addition to their motor sailor line. The 37 is still available from a new builder on a custom basis.......[emoji383][emoji383][emoji383]
