VERY WELL BUILT, OUTSIDE HEAD, WALK-AROUND DECK! You are looking at an amazing aluminum beast built in Chinook, Wash., by Edwing Boats. Known for exceptional design and construction, Edwing boats are built to fish in Alaska. This boat is very stable and has very safe gunnel and rails. It's extremely spacious on the back deck. Good for fishing and other pursuits. Would make an absolutely excellent charter or business boat. She is in pristine condition and has been lovingly stored in a heated shop.
This is a no-nonsense, get-them-to-the-fish kind of boat and the interior caters to folks who have one thing on their minds: catching the big ones. Stunning views are offered by the nearly 360-degree wraparound windows. The two forward ones open for ventilation. The captain and co-captain seats are air ride, adjustable bucket-style seats with arm rests. Cushioned bench seating for up to three adults is aft on starboard and a slightly shorter one on port. Each has foot rails for comfort. On the starboard side is a small cabinet with storage cubbies and a tabletop that can nicely fit a coffee maker. The stand-up head is reachable off the back deck and has an electric macerator commode and a 10-gallon holding tank. This external entry to the head is great for helping keep the interior clean and fresh. But if it gets a little messy inside, everything is super easy to clean. Forced air diesel furnace warms everyone up on the return trip to the dock.
Deck space galore! That s what you will love most about Alaskan Kai. She has a huge cockpit, wide side decks to fish from, and a lot of bow space to fish from as well. Come aboard Alaskan Kai by way of her port and starboard boarding ladders. The main fishing area, the back deck, is huge and unencumbered. A nice, large fillet table is mounted to the transom, which also houses equipment storage lockers. An in-deck fish/bait box is easily accessed and the swim deck is plenty big enough to lash a huge cooler upon. High sides and railing around the entire vessel keep you securely on board while fighting that stubborn beast on the end of your line. Pole holders are perched along the railing and numerous rocket launchers store your poles completely out of the way when not in use. In the bow, a storage box also doubles as a quick seat for tired backs. A partial overhand gives you a nice place to duck out of a squall. Another partial overhang is at the stern and also helps prevent poor weather from blowing into the cabin. At the end of the day, easily wash away fishing remnants with the deck washdown system.
This zippy gal has great power behind her, which comes from two 2017 Suzuki 200 horsepower gas outboard motors with only 190 hours on each. She cruises at 25 knots at 3,500 rpm and has a nice top speed of 35 knots. You won t be puttering to the hot spots, that s for sure. Trim tabs smooth out the plane. Her single fuel tank holds a generous 200 gallons of fuel. Anchoring is done with a Bruce 33-pound anchor, 60 feet of chain and 600 feet of line.
On Alaskan Kai, you have two Optima start batteries and one Optima housebank. Navigation is centered on a Garmin XSV system, including her GPS, plotter, radar and depth sounder. There is an additional depth sounder, a Furuno FCV-588. Back deck lighting really extends those fishing hours.
This boat is completely trailerable and comes with a Venture triple axle trailer. If you want to see one of the most solid aluminum boats out there, call today and make an appointment!
