This power boat is 2 1/2 years old and is very well maintained. The Yamaha 175 HP 4-stroke outboard is extremely reliable and economical to operate. The boat is equipped with a 2-battery system to reduce the chance of running down the battery when you are floating around listening to the stereo. Motor has never failed to start. Plenty of cushioned seating for 6 adults (or children). The Key West boats are virtually unsinkable - they are filled with foam below deck - and very safe to operate. Cruises comfortably at 26-28 MPH - gets up on plane at @16 MPH. Hard top provides welcome shade for captain and mate. Boat is equipped with all necessary gauges (see listing Description for more details). No individual fishing license required; VA Saltwater Recreational Boat Sport Fish license onboard. BoatUS Gold towing policy on boat - if you get grounded or otherwise need assistance, BoatUS will tow you back to Lynnhaven Marine at no charge.
Perfect for fishing the Bay. Powered by a 175HP Yamaha 4-stroke - has plenty of power with 3 or 4 fishermen aboard but won't bust your gas budget. Gets around 3.8 - 4.0 miles per gallon at cruising speeds of 25-28 mph.
Boat features a large, 10" Garmin 1040X GPS/Fishfinder, with VHS (and MMSI digital distress connection), built-in stereo with 6 speakers around boat, cushioned seating at back and in front for 6 total, underwater lights (for night fishing), gear storage in center console, pole racks under bolsters, rocket launchers for 8 rods, 4 more on gunnels, live well at back, raw water feed and fresh water tank and spray hose, bait box under passenger seat forward of console, and 36 quart Igloo marine cooler under captain's chair stocked with ice and water. Gaffs, fish nets (large and small), cutting board plus rags and buckets for keeping clean are on board.

A joy to pilot! Handles well, is unsinkable (filled with foam under deck everywhere) and economical to take anywhere around the Bay or Oceanfront.
The 219 FS Key West is a fantastic boat that is very well maintained. John the owner is a very nice guy with lots of knowledge about his boat and boating in general. He is willing to drop everything to make sure you have everything you need to make your trip a success. The Key West handles the waves perfectly which makes it feel your in a way bigger boat when your cutting through the waves. The engine and electronics are all in perfect working condition and are all turn key and ready to go. I strongly recommend renting Johns boat if you are trying to have a great day on the water with your friends and family .
