Check The Specs!

Kokomo is a 2007 boat that had very little use before 2010 when I bought her. Stored at Les Lampman's facility in Coronet Bay (E.Q. Marine), Whidbey Island, WA, she had 72 demo hours on her when I purchased her in 2010. She hadn't even been broken in yet (approx. 100 hours). The owner, who was a "commission her with the best of everything" type of guy from Jackson, WY, flew in on a small plane infrequently, and when he encountered health problems, the boat was maintained but sat idle much of the time. So you decide: She may be a 2007 when she was built? Or she may as well have been a 2010 when she was finished being commissioned and went to 'sea'. (Lakes, rivers, Delta, Bay, the Pacific Northwest, etc.)

If you'd like a complete inventory of Kokomo's current equipment please see the (UPDATED) Specifications list HERE.
If you haven't read the story of our getting the boat, I recommend it. It's HERE

SEA TRIAL TERMS: The boat is on it's trailer stored at my home in Yankee Hill, CA. You're welcome to see it here by appointment. I'd also be happy to take you on a sea trial. Here are our Sea Trial terms: A $350 cash non-refundable deposit is required*. The sea-trial will be at either the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta (3 hours one-way for me) or the San Francisco Bay (4 hours one-way for me), my choice. Note: The closest option, Lake Oroville, is sufficiently low that they've closed the launch ramps. We'll meet there if the water levels come up after the winter rains. This deposit will count toward the purchase price of the boat if you decide Kokomo is for you. The deposit will be applied to the cost of fuel (in the truck and the boat) and my time, etc. if not. Max time for sea trials is 3 hours.
