Beautiful, soft riding, well maintained Classic. Repowered with 450 Cummins!

The Gannet is a true old school classic sport fisherman. Built by Horace Graves in Hilton Head, she has all of the beautiful lines and features that so many boat builders tried to capture in that era. She is a sturdy, comfortable boat in a sea and has been owned and maintained by a professional captain with a lifetime of experience dealing with boats. Her creative interior layout makes for an awesome boat to charter fish, travel or live aboard and the roomy cockpit and bridge allow for a great fishing platform. She was repowered in 2008 with a set of 450 Cummins so she is reliable and economical as well. Don't let the age of this boat fool you, she is clean and rigged up and turn key ready to roll. If you want a boat that is pleasing on the eyes, affordable to buy and operate and can get you in the game immediately, take the ride to Virginia Beach and check out the Gannet. She is a very neat rig.‚Äč
