Pelicano 18 Bass Boat
Built in 2011 at Devlin Designing Boatbuilders, this is a fine example of a small cabin/daycruiser with some really innovative thought put into her design and build. This Pelicano is in the “Bass Boat” configuration and has a sleeping cabin with space for gear stowage, berth area for two and galley flats and even more important, room for a porta-potti. She is white and has Sea-Foam colored decks with cetol finished out trim to her. In the cockpit are two fixed seats, she has a 70 HP Yamaha outboard on her stern, a Garmin depth/chart plotter for her instruments and she has a two battery start/house bank for her on-board electrics.
Top speed with the 70 HP outboard is 24 knots and she really likes cruising in the 20 knot range with good fuel economy and good motion through the water. Trim tabs help keep her running level and smoothly in different waters and she sits on a King galvanized trailer with canvas windscreen and cockpit covers. She is an easy boat to trailer with very little effort to launch and retrieve.
This is a small but very elegant cruiser -- all you need is one of those perfect days to dance about on the water with her. Stop for afternoon in a secluded cove, perhaps a fine lunch and a short nap. This is really the way to use a boat and have it accent your life by getting you away from the normal stress of life and out on the water poking about for some fine adventures.
She is all set up ready to go, with nothing to add. She comes with all the life jackets, tie down lines, flare kit, fire extinguisher, cabin cushions etc. It’s all there just waiting for you to hook her up to your vehicle, tow to the water and set out for a great days adventures. She's brand new and ready to roll!
She is located in Olympia, Washington. Call Sam Devlin at (360) 866-0164 to arrange to view this fine boat.
