20' Wellcraft 1988 - V-20 Steplift - YS220023

General Description

For more than 20 years, the V-20 Steplift's revolutionary stepped hull and classic lines have made her one of the best-selling boats in her class. It's never out of style to have an extremely dry ride with excellent stability.

The self-bailing cockpit has a straightforward design that maximizes fishing space. Rod storage is extensive under both gunwales, and the transom is equipped with bait and fish boxes. There's a unique swiveling bucket seat and a traditional stainless steel destroyer typewheel at the helm. A big sliding hatch allows for simple cabin access and ventilation, as well as convenient forward access for anchor handling.

She sleeps two in a spacious V-berth below decks, allowing you to take use of your "fishing weekend" option more frequently. When you're not on board, the cuddy doubles as a dry, lockable storage place. But, based on the last two decades, that won't happen very often.

Actual Condition

Due to the passing of her late husband, our client has requested that CSI market their newly painted V-20 Steplift. The vessel was kept at a RI Marina from 2019-2021. It was her husband who was the captain and primary keeper of the vessel and who loved taking her out on the water for recreational fishing and to enjoy being on the water in general.

While it is reported that there are no known issues, there are a few areas that need to be reviewed, namely the floor under the passenger seat, and the trailer cross-members. Send in your best offers for consideration!
