No rod holders.

No livewell.

No tuna tower or 2nd control station.
OK, to be serious. Condition dictates price!

Those engines and drives will expen$ive to repair, if not in good condition. I strongly recommend a marine survey.

Also, YOU need to go in 'blind' ... meaning DO NOT get emotionally attached to this boat ... or any boat (or a woman ) until you know what you're dealing with.

Make a list of the boat - bow to stern - every part, feature, or system, then you ... as well as the surveyor, make specific note of the condition, like does it work, need to be fixed, or replaced, etc.?

Good luck!

Only thing I recommend is to have a survey done. That's a lot of boat for Arizona .
