Default For Sale - 1976 Seacraft Sceptre

PayPal Transaction ID - 0U028851UC162161M

1976 23' Seacraft Sceptre (Hull ID Number SECR30530276)
Full restoration completed in 2019
Location: Texas


I bought this boat in 2013 and started using the boat in 2019. I love the boat and its performance but it is time to downsize to a shallow-running skiff. I used it for making beach trips with the family and also made several trips offshore. There really isn’t anything that has not been redone on the boat and all of it was done with an open checkbook.

The hardtop is fiberglass with a light blue gelcoat. You will not find aluminum work that was done any more professionally that this one. It is all polished aluminum and the welds are pristine in quality. The top hinges down and I have an aluminum cradle that is used for laying the top down when trailering. It is a 2-man job to put the top up or lay it into the cradle. Me and my 75-year old father do it ourselves. Once the top is in place, there are 4 bolts that secure it. When the top is in the cradle, the overall height on the trailer is around 11’ 6” from the ground. The helm shade that goes on the top is removable and it is secured by 6 bolts. I have installed / removed it alone, but it is easier with 2 men. The helm shade is powder-coated black. It looks great and works well when it is on, but the boat is also really functional to use without it because it enables whoever is up there to cast freely. Below are the features on the boat. As part of the restoration, I also replaced all interior upholstery, rub rail, navigation and interior lights, all hardware, bilge pumps, new gelcoat in the cockpit and on the bow. The live well and washdown pumps were also replaced. New teak cabin door and all other teak was redone. The windshield frame was removed and powder coated and new glass was installed. All wires, hoses, clamps were also replaced as part of the restoration.

MOTOR
Suzuki DF300AP with approximately 90 hours
Dual helm electronic controls with full functionality at both upper and lower stations
Suzuki factory Stainless Steel Prop with spare Powertech prop

ELECTRONICS
Garmin GPSMAP 1042 XSV (Lower station)
Garmin GPSMAP 942 XS (Upper station)
Garmin GT51M transom mount CHIRP transducer
Standard Horizon GX2200B Standard Matrix AIS/GPS VHF
Fusion RA70NI Stereo (integrated into Garmin system)
Wet Sounds Stealth 10 Speaker Bar
Garmin GXM 53 XM Weather/Radio
2x Lumitec SeablazeX underwater lights

BOAT FEATURES
Hermco fiberglass motor bracket
Awlgrip painted from water line to rub rail
Black rub rail (the older, white one is in one of the above pictures. It was replaced with a black Taco rub rail.)
90 gallon fuel tank (new)
Bennett Marine trim tabs with electronic indicator
Seastar hydraulic steering is all new, helms, hoses and cylinder on motor (complete dual station functionality)
2 Battery system with Blue Sea Systems Automatic Charging Relay
2x Rule 2000 bilge pumps - Each on float switch and also each on independent manual switches
Under gunnel LED lights
LED spot light and LED spreader lights
Seadek helm pad at upper station and on motor bracket
Taco Grand Slam 380 outrigger bases (outriggers not included)
4 Gunnel rod holders; 2 transom rod holders; 7 rod holders on hard top
Custom built seat boxes - tackle station built into one, open storage in the other. Both also have built-in cooler that works great for day trips for drinks and bait
Live well approximately 45 gallons built into transom
Rails installed for strata glass enclosure (I never purchased the actual strataglass but adding it would be simple)

TRAILER
Coastline aluminum dual axel trailer purchased new in April 2019

The upper station is not currently on the boat but it will go with the boat and is included in the price. I removed it because it because too much for me to raise/lower when it was just me and my family. It also increased the time required to clean and maintain the boat and so it was just easier for me to remove it. It is stored in a barn and it can be transported in the back of a pick-up truck.

I have receipts for all the major work that was done. I also maintained a spreadsheet of all expenses for the restoration which totaled over $100k. This boat was stripped down to the fiberglass and gelcoat. Everything was replaced with new components and I have progress pictures that documents it all.

The 10-hour service has been done and I and have the paperwork.

A marine survey of the boat was done and I will share the survey report upon request.

Price - $54,000

The rub rail is black. During the rebuild I installed a white one but I did not like the look so it was replaced with a black one. I really like the black one and think that is provides a really nice separation between the blue hull and the off-white topsides.

Default New Pics

I thought I could sell the boat and keep the motor and trailer but that won't work for me. The shaft on this Seacraft is a 30" and is too long for the shallow-running boat I would have put it on.

Sorry for mistakenly posting that.
