2012 Custom Carolina 32′ Irving Forbes

Unique Opportunity to Own a Proven Custom Built Commercial / Charter Boat with Significant Income Potential

This Carolina Custom 34′ was specifically designed as a trailerable commercial fishing and 6-passenger charter fishing boat by well-respected NC Outer-Banks custom boat builder Irving Forbes.

She is powered by a single 5.9L 425 HP Cummins providing an economical 21 Kt. cruise at 70% load while burning 12 GPH. Even though this boat is trailerable and very manageable in size, you will not miss many days due to inclement weather with her deep forward entry and high freeboard. Forward kill-box capacity is 2800 lbs, this boat has excelled at fast, efficient one-day trips targeting snapper, grouper, amberjack and King mackerel. Owner will entertain selling a turn-key package including a S. Atlantic King Mackerel commercial permit and tackle. Call for further details. This boat has paid for herself many times over!

Owner is retiring making this a unique opportunity for someone looking for a profitable alternative to boat ownership or as an addition to an existing commercial operation looking to expand their fleet.
