For Sale: 2006 Lowe Suncruiser Tahiti 192 Deck Boat

Posted by Keith Elder | Posted in For Sale | Posted on 24-02-2011

I bought this boat in Oct of 2009 and it has been a fantastic boat. Everything on it works and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. I’m selling it because I fish 99.9% of the time and thus want more of a true fishing boat.

I bought this boat after searching for about a year and looking at all kinds of various layouts and designs. I was wanting a cross between a pontoon and a v-hull boat, something that was great for fishing and skiing. This is it. It is 10 times better than a pontoon ever thought about being and is so versatile on the water. The boat is technically called a “Deck Boat” but serves as a fish and ski boat. The best way to describe it is it is like having a v-hull pontoon. Lots of room, lots of storage and she’ll fish one second and ski the next.

Price: $19,000
