TRAILERABLE ALUMINUM BOW LANDING CRAFT! LOW HOURS! There are endless possible uses for this aluminum landing craft workhorse: crabber, long-liner, survey and research boat, cargo shuttle. Because this landing craft was designed and refined by Kodiak fishermen, she performs exceptionally well over other landing crafts she doesn t squat in the stern and is well-balanced when carrying a load. For personal use, she can haul an ATV and easily unload onto remote coastlines and open up new recreation and hunting destinations previously inaccessible. This boat is in excellent condition with barely-used engines and is waiting to see what she can become for you.

Emerson Landing has a small, but comfortable interior with the two comfort items you need most in an Alaska work vessel: a source of heat and a padded seat. Her cabin is 72 inches long, 65 inches wide and 71 inches high. Entrance to the fully welded, stand-up cabin is through the weather tight, lockable sliding port side door. A Dickinson propane heater is mounted just behind the two-person cushioned helm seat and is fed by a 2.5 gallon LPG tank. The starboard side and aft windows open for ventilation. The starboard window has a rain block so you can crack the window without droplets flying into the cabin. A nice storage tray runs along the underside of the windshields and makes a perfect place to hold keys, glasses wallets or other small personal items.

 On Deck:
The bow lander makes beaching and disembarking a breeze and really broadens this boat s options for other types of Alaskan use, from commercial to recreational. With a bow door 56 inches wide and 51 inches high and a front deck 141 inches long and 107 inches wide, you can load, haul and unload a lot of catch or cargo on the self bailing bow deck of Emerson Landing. There is a lot of tie-down railing for whatever you need to lash. Diamond plate traction on the deck flooring, as well as the gunnels, keep folks from slipping around too much. Hull storage cubbies in the bow and stern tuck away fenders, fuel additive bottles, and other equipment odds and ends. The 20-inch-wide walk-around deck extends to the back of the cabin and is 26 inches high from the deck to the cap rail. Bottom of the boat to cap rail is 3'6". Partial stern deck covering provides passengers a quick break from a downpour. While underway in winter weather, her reverse raked windshield windows allow rain and spray to roll off quickly, keeping your vision clear on the way toward land.

 Engine and Mechanical:
The power behind this 26-footer comes from her two reliable 2008 Yamaha four-stroke 115 horsepower gas engines. These engines have barely been broken in with ONLY 251 HOURS on them. Practically brand new! She kick this vessel up to a nice brisk cruise speed of 30 knots. Her fuel capacity is a healthy 150 gallons, enough for a very full day out. Steering is hydraulic C-Star and she has Yamaha controls. She comes with a Bruce 22 pound anchor and engine covers.

 Electrical and Electronics:
This package comes with several electronics at the helm, including a Garmin Echo Map SD GPS, a Cobra marine VHF and a Furuno FCV 667 depth sounder. She has been outfitted with a new electric winch for the bow door and her two start batteries were new in 2016. The electric pot puller does wonders for keeping your back healthy. The work day or a long trip goes by faster when you listen to tunes on the CD player stereo system on board.

 Notes and Extras:
During the week, landing crafts build houses, deliver machinery, shuttle cargo, haul fish. On the weekend, they are the boats which allow you to spend your day on that favorite, water-access-only beach. This package also comes with a nice King three-axle 2008 trailer with salt water electric brakes (GVW 12,000).
