48' Hi-Star 1987 The Jolly Rogers

Fort Lauderdale, FL, US

Previously Asking $149,000

Off Market



If you are in the market for a quality sportfish at an affordable price, look no further than “The Jolly Rogers”

The current owner has owned this boat for over 20 years and has shown her the love that she truly deserves. I have been the Captain and manager of this vessel for 13 years. Since I first came onboard, the owner has provided me with a credit card and open checkbook and insists that ANYTHING the boat needs to keep her in top condition and ready for his next trip should be done without hesitation.

This boat is constantly being upgraded and the list of upgrades and improvements are too long to list but are evident the minute you walk on board. Nearly every system and major component on the boat has been replaced with new. She has been customized in so many ways that you will never find another boat like her.

The engines and generator are fully up to date on all services with loads of invoices as evidence. Oil samples are taken at regular intervals and come back perfect every time. She is fresh out of the yard where she received new bottom paint, new underwater lights. All running gear was removed and dialed in. This boat is ready right now to take you anywhere you choose to adventure. She has spent most of her life in the Bahamas out islands, the Florida Keys and Dry Tortugas.

Once you board this vessel, you would never be able to guess her age as she shows like a much younger boat. She is surveyed every 5 years and always passes with flying colors. ‘The Jolly Rogers” has been docked in fresh water for 13 years and gets a fresh water flush on every trip.

Price includes 11'4 Boston Whaler CC w/ Mercury 25 hp outboard with only approx. 10 hours.
