Mon Ark
Commercial 1652
North Carolina - NC

Includes motor, trailer, and many, many extras. See accessories list below for just about everything you could possibly need. Clean titles for everything. Selling it because I have a bad back.
It came from the Triangle and probably has never been in saltwater.
Came from an old friend that literally had not used it in 15 years.
Unique commercial model, that was made to better specs. They really do not make them like it anymore.
I have spent over $2,200 just in materials/parts and over 360 hours in renovations over the past two years.
I am very meticulous with my work. You will have a boat that needs nothing, I repeat, no repairs or maintenance to do.
