1992 Willard 2006 turbo Cummins Diesel

[YOUTUBE]89DR6kDD9tI[/YOUTUBE]1992 Willard with 2006 Cummins 220 HP @ 2500 rpm 100 plus hours on engine (Cruises@ 28 knots and Max 31 Knots, with 23 pitch prop, will do 3 knots more all around with 25pitch stainless) Konrad 520 drive $14,000 new and the last drive you will buy, not like Mercruiser, built 4 times stronger! The boat was reconditioned by me two months ago, including but not limited too:

New algrip2 paint throughout, even engine (linear polyurethane)
New cushions with gray piping
Engine was gone thru with rebuilt injectors, fuel distributor, senders, starter, alternator etc.
New fuel pump, impeller, racor fuel filter, thermostat etc.
New batteries
New wiring and harness


Overall inflated tube length 23.75 ft (7.24m)
Beam (overall inflated tube beam) 9.0223 (2.75m)
Draft to Keel (full load) 575mm 22.63inches
Displacement (full load) 3500 kilograms 7716lbs.
Weight (hoisting) 1814 kilograms 4000lbs.
Cummins Engine Co. Model 6BT5.9-M 220 h.p @ 2500 rpm
7.5 gallons hour @ 25knots, light conditions
Marine Gear Borg Warner model 72C red. 1:1
Outdrive Unit Konrad 520 drive
Fuel Capacity 130 liters 34.34 gallons
24 volt electrical system 12 volt service panel
18 passanger capacity

I have sea trialed this boat to Catalina Island 4 times, (31 nm across the ocean) and has done some whale scouting for new channel 5 shoots, so she is ready for action. All my boats leave with a seal of approval in full operating condition, if you need references I will be pleased to give them.

These boats are still being produced by Willard today for $145,000, Northport tried to duplicate Willard in a contract in 1998, which I had one of their boats, and they went bankrupt due the failure to produce the boat for 1,500 less in a 100 boat contract, so it goes to show the money is very well spent! Wings makes the tubes and cost $12,000 (note the tubes on this boat are perfect manufactured in 2005) The Cummins recon goes for $12,000, the Drive by Konrad for $14,000, the stainless steel is $35,000 and you can see why! So for $29,000 you can have one of the most reliable boats in the ocean in any sea condition! Call 310-308-6951 For any questions

Do you know of any problems exporting these to Canada if it was an X military boat? I assume the trailer is not included?

4 times? That's not sea trialling, that's joy riding
