Broker's Comments

Wow! This is one impressive fishing machine! and what a great price for a 2008.

This 2008 Dual Console 290 model is at the top of its class. World Cat has pretty much thought of everything with this vessel and the amount of usable space is astounding.

Then of course there is the World Cat ride. I know I am personally very tired of getting beat up out there with other boats that just do not deliver what they promise. If you agree, than you may want to consider this World Cat. A 2008 with low time and fully equipped with electronics and heavy duty trailer, all for under $140K is a steal and will not last long.

Please have a look at the numerous photos for a "true representation" of this vessel.

We can provide CE certification and international shipping. Please contact Scott McNally with Boatshed for more information.

These boat details are subject to contract. Owner will consider all offers.
