Alaska Harvesting machine. This boat was custom built for fishing Cook Inlet and Homer. It has extra high sides and an extra tall cabin than a standard Koffler. This is a very safe hull and has no “weird” sea habits (does great in a following sea and head sea). It's damn near impossible to fall out of the back deck.

The deck easily fishes 4-5. Has seating for 6, and the walk thru bow is ideal for setting and pulling the anchor, catching a bear, fishing off the front, or pulling up to a beach (to net said bear). 2 large anchor/storage lockers on the bow deck and massive storage in front console.

The Suzukis and controls were purchased at, and installed by Peninsula Powersports in Soldotna fall 2020. With fuel topped off and 5-6 people in a 3 foot chop head sea will get 2.1-2.3 NAUTICAL miles/gallon at 26-28 mph. Lightly loaded (2-3 people) on a flat day up to 2.6 NM/gallon at 30 mph. The most I would burn is 40 gallons a day (Elizabeth Island round trip from Homer fully loaded fuel+fish+people).

The Suzuki digital gauge provides very accurate fuel consumption data. The 9.9 kicker used for trolling or a “get home motor” pretty much “makes gas” thus consumption is neglegiable and has a basic analog gauge to provide hours and rpm.

Vessel has a 60 gallon single fuel cell. I ran with an additional 16 gallon auxiliary tank as a back up, but never needed it (since been removed to clear out clutter). There is a valve installed on the Raycor.

I’ve tried different props and the current prop is the perfect match for this boat.

The Penn fathom master downriggers are the best downriggers I've ever used (manual>electric). Because of the high rails and low deck, this boat does not have a fish box, but I had a massive custom-built kill bag that hangs off the back rail and works great (fits up to 80 lb halibut and/or 400 lbs of fish total).

Everything on this boat works. This is not a project boat. It's ready to fish, hunt, beach comb, and harvest. Koffler uses a heavier gauge aluminum than most manufacturers (this is not a Hewes) and this boat is described as “hell for stout”. It's a big water boat in a smaller, more approachable and more efficient package. The bottom paint is still in good shape (no copper). This boat doesn't really need anything to get out and fish (rods, hooks and bait obviously). Garmins will have some good numbers to get you started ;)

1999 24 Koffler Bay Bee Hull.
Engines:
2020 250 Suzuki with 350 hours (engine oil and gearcase oil changed Oct 2023)
2020 9.9 Suzuki Kicker electric trim & start connected to main engine (not a tiller) with under 70 hours (engine oil and gearcase oil changed Oct 2023, same as main)
Both engines always flushed after use and salt-away once a week.

Digital Tach and Gauge on the 250 main with NEMA connected to Garmin (gives you mpg, and fuel burn data. Very important as fuel gauges on a boats are not that accurate—refuel and reset trip and it will provide you with exactly how much fuel you are consuming). But yes, of course it does have a float gauge and it provides another data point)

Lightly used 2013 aluminum Venture Trailer with brand new tires (sat for 7 years, and then only used to 3-4 times/ year for seasonal haulout and maintenance)

600 feet of anchorline and claw anchor (30 feet chain).
