Aerohead Yachts built a truly amazing and capable craft. Phoenix is a fishing vessel through and through. She is built to take anglers well offshore in search of tuna, but is also well suited trolling for salmon in protected waters. This ruggedly built boat is impressive, fast and rock solid in a seaway. Her hull is made from 5086 5/16” aluminum plate on the bottom and ¼” aluminum plate on the hull sides. Cruising speed is 30 knots plus with a range of approx. 500 nautical miles. It’s hard to describe how rock solid she is. One must get out in the nasty stuff to best understand how this boat owns it. She has three air ride seats for the long haul in a seaway out to the fishing grounds.
Phoenix is a “fish killer”, equipped with 16 rocket launchers and eight rail mounted rod holders and two down rigger pads on each side. The Honda 15 hp kicker motor has separate controls and is fed by a separate 20 gallon tank. She is equipped with a live well on swim step, 3 huge fish boxes, and bait cutting board.
Her hull is strong quiet and built for comfort. She has foam insulation through-out and the Webasto hydronic heater keeps thing toasty in the cabin.
Phoenix has been well maintained and upgraded during her current ownership including a new Simrad NSS16 evo 2 touch screen radar/chartplotter/fish finder display and new Simrad Halo pulse compression radar open array. Her mechanical systems have been kept excellent working order. Phoenix is ready to go.
