2016 Pioneer 197 Sport Fish

ALVALV Posts: 116 Deckhand
Selling my Pioneer. It's been a reliable and versatile boat that I bought new after visiting the factory. Was planning on buying the Bulls Bay (also built by Pioneer) but after seeing the build on the Pioneer I changed my mind and spent the extra bucks. Have fished 50 miles out and can trout fish on the way in. Some numbers: 4 mpg at 30 mph with two people and full tank of gas. Floats in 13'. Idles in gear in 15" and need 2 1/2' to get on plane. 56 gallon fuel tank. Just had 300 hour service and full detail mid October. One of the things that caught my attention on this vs other comparable boats was the room behind the front seat. It's amazing how tight this space is on most of the manufacturers smaller units. the trolling motor was a game changer. No more anchoring ! The Rhodan stays on the number and does not drift off then come back to the number as does the Minn Kota. It was well worth the $3800 (installed) that I spent on it. Tide changes and wind changes ....... you're on the number. Two lockable tackle centers and 23 rod holders. The two dash mounted Lowrance touch/manual units allow for all kinds of combo looks. I also have a lot of gear and several hundred (800) numbers between Homosassa and Cedar Key. 3000 to 4000 numbers in the Keys.  All negotiable......$39,990 boat and trailer
