When people mention Classic North Carolina Boat Builders, Omie Tillett's name is always at the top of the list. Here is a truly rare opportunity to own his #3 hull and what is even more appealing is the fact that she has just undergone a full repower. With a brand new set of 600 hp QSC Cummins, new gears, electronic controls, shafts, dripless shaft seals and cutless bearings, this marlin magnet is now faster, smoother and more economical than she's ever been. The entire bottom was also stripped, re-glassed and finished in the fall of 2016 along with other items. She is considered by many to be the prettiest and most proportionally accurate boat in her class. Either way, there is no arguing her looks, ride, fishability and classic appeal. With a range that allows the longer runs, a 2 stateroom and 2 full head layout and ample electronics, this rig will get the job done in many of the world's current hot spots...And the fish have never been shy about showing behind her either...On her 5 trips out of Oregon Inlet after the repower, she raised 7 Blue Marlins and a good number of white and sails in mediocre fishing. Where will her next home be?....
