Harbercraft / Jetcraft Kingfisher
Posted by John S on Apr 06 2006
I'm interested in anyones thoughts on the Kingfisher, anyone that has some experience with them. I am interested in the 25' model. Some of my concerns are:
Reports of at least a couple of buckled hulls on Kingfishers in AK and corrosion problems
I currently own a 18' Harbercraft that has been OK overall, except for some corrosion issues. Harbercraft had a great, open, honest forum on their website. I guess it was too honest, because they've removed it.
Here's why I want a Kingfisher. It's the ONLY production aluminum outboard boat that I've found with a big fish hold, marine head in it's own compartment, V-berth to sleep two, table that collapses to sleep two more, sink, and stove. Very important is the fact that the dining seat back folds back so a passenger is sitting forward underway. (My wife doesn't want to sit sideways and I want her on log watch.)
I haven't found ANY other production aluminum boat with all these features. If you have, let me know, I'm interested, but I walked EVERY boat at the Seattle Boat Show.
