Rare YAM 480. 16 Ft. Hard to find in the states. $8500

Hey guys.
After rigging this vessel for my use I decided to go a different route. I have only good things to say about this dinghy. I've gone offshore fishing, deep dropping, gone to the keys from Miami, Sand Bar, Night cruising, tow it with the big boat to Bimini and the kids and family love to drive it.
If you try to find a tender this size with the added accessories you will be paying well above 20k.

1998 rare Yamaha 16 foot inflatable tender. Purchased from a European Yacht that had it as tender. The model YAM480 its built overseas. You don't see these anywhere. Has a big integrated platform that makes getting on and off sandbars or from diving a breeze.
I completely rewired and re-powered this boat. Everything it's new and high end quality. Came with a 50hp and I re-powered it with a 2007 Yamaha 70hp hard to find 2 stroke.
