Dark Horse is a 34' Twin Outboard Center Console with a cabin forward design built by Glenn Bradley Boatworks in Wanchese NC in 2016.  The hull configuration begins with a nice entry at the forefoot that transitions back through her length, flattening out more toward the transom. She runs great and is a smooth, dry riding example of the craftsmanship of the builder.

The engines are stamped from the spring of 2015 and were put into service in November 2015 at the launch of the boat. She has a large centrally located helm console with a hardtop and framework as well as an upper station. She is laid out very well and equally appointed with excellent electronics at both stations and set up for fishing. She is powered by a pair of 300 Yamaha 4 strokes with 400 hrs and up to date service on everything.

Her cabin lies forward under the bowdeck with an entry hatch and door at the bulkhead. There is a simple, large double berth layout inside with cushions, padded panel walls, soft stretched headliner with lighting, rod storage, AC, fwd hatch, general storage under bunks, microwave, FW sink and a marine head. Rear bunk area converts to dining table as well.

The owner has spared no expense in her construction or upkeep. She has been professionally maintained by Coastal Marine Detailing since her initial launch in 2016 and Joe's Marine in Wanchese has performed all Yamaha service work. 

Along with the items on the boat, the sale of Dark Horse also includes a 2016 Triple axle Road King Trailer with a surge brake, an array of safety and lifesaving equipment and extra deck and fishing equipment .
