I tried to check all the boxes on the order form with this one, so I think it is pretty well loaded.

Boat is fast, stable and very comfortable. Runs very flat and is remarkably dry.

The 2300 is undoubtedly a great beach machine for the family. Storage everywhere for beach toys, water, beer, food, beach towels, dog toys... you name it.

But she is a certified fish killer. She's at home on the flats for redfish/trout/flounder and we ran her offshore last weekend and loaded her with grouper. 35 gallon livewell accommodates menhaden, cigar minnows, threads, bluefish or your baitfish of choice. 

Port release well holds trout or flounder all day for culling. Starboard aft hatch holds ice all day and makes a great pit stop for the fishies on the way to the grease or grill.

2014 Venture Tandem Axle Trailer has been in/out of water less than 12 times, and washed each time. Boat is kept in dry stack where engine is flushed after each use.

I have only used NON-ETHANOL FUEL since the boat was new.

Top Speed light is low 60s. 

Boat runs pretty consistent with the performance bulletin found here:

Contact Brad via phone or text at 910.620.0698. Boat is ready to show on short notice. No joy rides, but easily water tested for serious qualified buyers.

Located in Wilmington NC. 

Motivated To Sell: $59,500.

A brand new one off the lot sitting on an Ameratrial with blade pp, 2 Engel coolers. and music with 4 speakers will run you $68,000 before taxes and no trolling motor or gps/electronics or trolley batteries.  I'd say you are priced about right, but the market will tell you.....if it sits for 3 months no bites, then maybe reduce

I think the price is right, a 2016 with similar features will be around $80k. Anyone who is seriously considering one can do the math. When you start to add all the options, batteries, electronics, stereo, power-poles, etc. etc. etc. it really adds up. In my opinion there are two reasons someone will pay more for the new one over yours, they get to build it and pick colors, etc. and they get the extra year+ of warranty. Great boat, good luck on the sale.

Thank you Certified Rehab for the test ride.  I enjoyed meeting you.     Your 2300 is awesome - EVERYTHING you said it was and showed it to be in the pictures!  The boat is quicker than the 2400 and the ride is very smooth.  It was a tough decision.  Ultimately I decided on the 2400 for the higher gunnels and rear seats.   Anyone looking for a 2300 HPS -- go see him -- great boat.
