General Description

Exceptionally well maintained & fully fish rigged Egg Harbor 43 Sportfish is now available and priced to sell. Her sportfishing heritage is plain to see from the outriggers to the fighting chair in the well laid out cockpit. Over $65k in maintenance and upgrades in the last three years alone! Please click on the Full Specs tab for more details.  This is a boat that’s regularly used, not one that’s been sitting in a marina for years with no attention.  All of the typical repairs you’d expect to make on a vessel of this vintage have already been done and done properly. 

Upgrades & Restorations
