2005 Boston Whaler 205 Eastport ...
I am moving up to a larger Whaler. This is a great unsinkable boat. The 2 stroke 150 HP mercury has 490 hours. It has been serviced each year. It sips gas. The hull is in excellent condition and was detailed yearly. There is a tandum axle trailer that has been completely rebuilt in last 2 years. Trailer can go with boat or not. I will only discuss selling boat to local Buyer's whom are willing to come see boat at lift location on St. Petersburg Beach. Review below:If there's an aquatic version of the sport-utility vehicle, it would probably be the walkaround fishing boat. Boston Whaler 205 Eastport, an alternative to the company's Conquest cabin-boat series. We still use the same yacht-quality components like tinned-copper wiring, solid-stainless-steel cleats, heavy-duty rub rails and unsinkable Unibond construction. The Eastport provides weather protection, lockable storage and the flexibility to fish offshore one day and entertain the family the next. It is a great all-purpose boat at a value price." The Eastport is built with a traditional variable-deadrise hull with a 45-degree bow entry transitioning to 18 degrees at the transom. The boat's slightly rounded keel allows it to plane quickly and perform well with less power. During our factory test on Georgia's Savannah River, the top speed with the standard 150-hp Mercury OptiMax was 39 mph with two persons aboard and a full tank of fuel. At a 4500 rpm cruise, speed was 32.6 mph while burning 9.0 gph, or the equivalent of a 193-nautical-mile range, including a safety reserve. The ride was solid, yet soft, even in confused ship wakes. Whaler's long-established fishing background is evident throughout the Eastport. The walkaround design offers 360-degree fishability, but what's most noticeable is the boat's spacious cockpit. At 41 square feet, with 22 inches of interior freeboard, there's enough room to fish comfortably without banging elbows. Rods up to seven feet long can be stowed in the dual horizontal racks under the gunwales or in flush-mounted rod holders in the covering boards. The aft-facing crew seats amidships incorporate an insulated fishbox/storage to starboard and a storage cooler with drain to port. The fishing package option includes an additional pair of rod holders and a live well plumbed in the port helm box.
