2001 Carolina Classic 35 Express
She is powered by Cummins 450 Diamond Series engines with appox 1300 hours on them
The boat is on the WEST coast in Washington state. This is a Non-tower boat with a soft top.
Took delivery of the boat in December of 2019 from the original owner. Boat is a 90% freshwater boat. From date of sale until 2019 it spend almost its entire life in Ohio. I moved it to Seattle where is sits in fresh water on Lake Union about 9 months out of the year.
Before delivery we upgraded the electronics to twin Garmin 8612 xsv screens, garmin VHF, and 4kw open array radar, 1kw transducer.
I then went to work to get the boat set up exactly as I wanted.
48 gallon Bluewater bait tank was installed
Rocket launcher rod rack fabricated
Replaced all the curtains and side windows
Upgraded the exhaust risers
prop bearings replaced and propspeed installed on props and rudders.
Lumitec underwater lights and spreader lights.
electric sockets for downriggers.
Other item of interest is that the boat has both bow and stern thrusters. Original owner was getting older and wanted to be able to hit the easy button...and I'm glad he did. The Sidepower thrusts help with docking, pulling crab pot lines, holding fishing lines vertical. They're worth their weight in gold. Also has Simrad Autopilot.
The boat is turn key. Normal winter maintenance plans will be to have valve adjustment completed, aftercoolers serviced and impellers replaced.
Not a fire sale, or a boat that you can come in and low-ball pricing. It showed better than any of the Carolinas that were for sale when I bought...and better than any available on the market now.
Best thing for prospective buyer is that the radar can fold back for travel...or simply be removed and the boat can be put on a low-boy and hauled anywhere.
For those of you who always ask about fuel burn...there is no fuel flow meter. I can tell you that after several hundreds of hours of use, my typical calculation for any of my trips is .7-.8 miles per gallon. I cruise at 2200 rpm and depending on tides and such that puts you at 22-24kts. Fast cruise on the way in with a push from the swells behind you on a nice day it will cruise 26kts. WOT we saw 2600 RPM
I will tell that this is the most sought after older engine package. These are mechanical diesels...no computer. Not prone to overprop issues the 480 cummins had in this boat.
As far as the ride...it's solid. You basically set the throttle for the conditions and just let the boat and carolina bow flare do it's job.
