1983 Mckee Craft Aruba Dual Console 13'10" hull with a 1996 40hp Suzuki outboard. It is in excellent condition for its age and it is the best small multipurpose boat I have ever seen. It is perfect for a 2-4 person cruise or fishing for any species, I have caught crappie, bass catfish, etc from this. There is enough space on both decks for casting, great for trolling, and very stable to walk around in due to the hull shape. It is a two-piece foam filled design manufactured exactly like a Boston Whaler, and it will continue to float if swamped or cut in half (but I have not tested this). It has two soft folding swivel captain's chairs, stainless steering wheel, hydraulic steering, walk thru folding window, storage compartment below the front deck, glove compartment, storage under the rear bench seat, bow grab rails, and fiberglass decks which are easy to clean. Horn, bilge pump, and navigation lights all work correctly, and the battery is only 12 months old and holds 13+ volts. There is a new Bluetooth stereo with a 240w marine grade amplifier and two Boss 6x9 three way speakers that are more than loud enough to hear when running down the lake or swimming. The outboard starts easily, idles quiet, shifts into both gears, accelerates well, had a 4 blade prop for torque to get up on plane, and pumps a lot of cooling water. It has a really nice Escort trailer that tows smooth on the highway with good tires, new properly working lights, new winch with strap, safety chains, uses a 2" hitch ball, new Kodiak Red Eye bearing buddies, freshly repacked bearings and seals which do not leak any grease. You do not need a full size truck to pull it, just about any car or SUV will work, the whole rig weighs only about 1000lbs. There is a removable Bimini top with isinglass plastic windows which securely snaps to the window for sun shade or protection from rain and an aftermarket full length cover which ties to the trailer frame. The boat gets a lot of attention and compliments every time it's out, people associate it with a Whaler and like the unusual name "The Tub" given by it's original owner. I have a video on Youtube of the boat running on the river, to watch it paste in "Mckee Craft 14 For Sale In Cincinnati". Will give test drive or let you get it inspected by a local marina. Located in Cincinnati Ohio. $4400. Call or text 513-284-3025.
