1985 Hewes Bonefisher II 16’

FrankRealFrankReal Posts: 46 Deckhand
One of a Kind COMPLETELY Custom Restored
The only thing left from ‘85 is the VIN tag and the date on the Title..

Build a new boat online to match these specs and itll run over $50k

The boat underwent a 2.5 Year restoration process that included every nut and bolt you can imagine, along with MANY custom additions

I have over 200 photos of the entire restoration. 
Some custom additions include:
-22 Gallon fuel tank place under floor center of boat
-Custom Made Top Cap Layout with 6 Hatches for Storage
(2 aft, 1 under captains seat, 2 towards bow, 1 small anchor storage)
-Live well
-Lumitec Quattro LED underwater Lights
-2 Batteries (motor/house, one trolling motor) placed towards the bow to compensate weight
-Custom Made acrylic hatches with “HEWES” and Bonefish Logo
-Complete custom wiring
-Custom Rubrail with rubber/chrome insert
-And many more..

-Motor is a 2015 Mercury 90HP with just under 35hrs (will increase with use)
With a Mercury Spitfire X7 12.7x19P Prop
-Atlas Micro Electric Jack plate rated up to a 115hp
-Electric Lenco Trim Tabs
-Simrad 7” EVO 2
-Fusion radio with 2 x 8.8” JL Audio LED M6 Speakers
-JL Audio Amplifier
-Custom Raised FL numbers and Decals
-Gussi Italian Made Steering wheel
-Stainless Steel Latches
-Noco genius 2 bank battery charger/maintainer
-much much more

Trailer is a 2000 Horizon (the one I recieved when I purchased the boat)
-Simple plastic fenders added
-I have brand new Trailer Guides I have yet to install
-Quick disconnect towards the bow for garage Storage

-Center console cover
-motor cover
-New Ropes
-Fire Extinguisher
-essentially everything you need to put the boat in the water the day you buy it

The boat does require some finishing touches. Which will be best seen in person. 

There is not another boat like this on the market without paying the brand new price tag.

located in Ft Lauderdale 

Sorry that the photos are all out of order, they did not upload in the correct order
