Used 2008 Stratos 176xt 10 miles

Honestly this boat is better than new. I added Canvas Cover, Spare Tire, Spare Tire Holder, Hour Gauge, Marine 12-volt Accessory Outlet, LED Interior Light, Better Transducer, Spin On Inline Fuel Filter, Transom Tie-Downs, Transom Saver Motor Support.The boat is like new mechanically and cosmetically. You save money on purchase, taxes, and accessories.Has only around 10 hours total time on boat. Not even fully broken-in yet.We have had it on the water 5 times since we purchased it new in the spring of 2011.It is a 2008 but we saw it taken out of factory plastic wrap, engine mounted, etc. as it was unsold new stock from a dealer that went out of business and was purchased by another dealer.I had all of the items listed above added, did the break-in as prescribed by engine manufacture, and it has been in enclosed dry storage plugged into 110 volt to keep batteries charged every since we owned it.Never left in water even overnight. Very picky about how pulled up to dock. Never pulled on shore, etc.I had it winterized and de-winterized by dealer.It has never had any gas with ethanol in the fuel in the tank - ever. Only premium "pure gas" has been in the tank and always with fuel stabilizer to boot.Starts and runs perfectly.Over $1,500 in accessories (listed above).You will not find a cleaner used boat, period. All original paperwork. Transferable 7-year engine warranty with 5.5 years remaining.The boat fishes great, runs great, planes great, we really like it but we have two kids in college and a small business plus other interests that take our time. Have not been able to use the boat like we had hoped as the lake where we have it stored is over 2 hours away and most weekends are busy with kids, church, other responsibilities.Really hate to sell it but it is too nice a boat to just sit unused and too expensive to pay $1,500 a year for storage and winterizing / de-winterizing to use a couple of times / few hours a year.Do not miss this boat. You will regret it if you do. It is the most practical fishing boat you can buy (so far as boats can be practical) and does everything well with no bad habits. There are bigger and faster boats but none that you will catch more fish from or spend less money to do it as aluminum boats cost as much as this one without the creature comforts or fishability.The rod locker holds a dozen rods, lots of dry storage, stable, fast enough (around 35 to 40 depending on how loaded) and the 4-stroke Yamaha just sips fuel. It amazes me how little fuel it burns whether idling or running. You can use the main motor to troll it is so fuel efficient, quite, and runs great at idle or WOT.Recently waxed. Ready to hit the water and catch fish.Whomever gets this boat will love it and the quality of the no-wood construction, Yamaha 4-Stroke, care it has been given, etc. means the new owner will enjoy it for years to come.I live in Jonesboro but boat is stored at Mountain Home just miles from the lake at indoor storage with the cover on the boat so clean and dry.
