The name says it all – it’s a Sea Sport. This boat is built for our west coast, capable of handling all kinds of weather. It’s huge hard-top can carry a dinghy or kayak and your prawn and crab traps.
Inside it’s warm and dry with both defrost and heating from the heat exchanger when running or continuous heat from the Wallas diesel stove/ cabin heating system. Large Seaglaze sliding windows provide 360 degree cabin visibility with separate defrost and wipers on all three forward windows. There is a Garmin GPS 5208 and Garmin HD radar for navigation, an Icom VHF radio at the helm and an additional Raymarine chartplotter and depth sounder in the cockpit.
A spacious V-berth with a custom pillow-top mattress provides comfortable sleeping for two with massive storage below. At anchor, the dinette gives you the best view in the house and also converts to a full-length berth with the adjustable table pedestal.
A Nova Kool fridge freezer, a functional galley with loads of storage and a stand-up enclosed head with sump pump and macerator complete the cabin. This boat carries 60 gallons of fresh water in a poly tank below the cabin centerline and 120 gallons of fuel in two tanks beneath the cockpit floor so you can spend as much time out on a trip as you like.
The engine is a Volvo Penta 5.7 Gi that provides a smooth 300 hp. It is equipped with an IMCO SuperFuel Valve that provides Coast Guard approved electronic switching between tanks while running. The trolling motor is a 9.9 High Thrust Yamaha with Power tilt and a Garmin TR1 Gold Marine autopilot. Two Scotty electric downriggers handle the fishing rods and there is a fish cleaning locker with drain and salt water wash down on the transom.
The boat is easy to tow with a dual axel Roadrunner trailer equipped with a spare tire and electric over hydraulic braking system.
The Boat’s History We had a Campion 24 Explorer that served us well for many seasons. During our spring launch preparations our mechanic at Port Boat House told us they had just received a Sea Sport 24 Explorer on consignment and that it was in storage. We took a look and that’s all it took. We couldn’t believe it was the same length as our Campion. The Sea Sport is a big 24! The boat was in brand new condition with 440 hours on the engine.
The boat was built in 2005 and sold new to a couple in West Vancouver in 2006. We bought it in 2013. It has been moored in fresh water at Clutesi Haven Marina in Port Alberni and professionally maintained and stored during the winter by Port Boat House, Port Alberni. It has full mechanical records, original documentation and is in perfect operational condition. The exterior of the boat is flawless – not a mark on its perfect shiny gelcoat. The interior is excellent.
The original design has not changed over the years but the price has. A new 2020 Sea Sport 24 Explorer is currently selling for $243,000 CDN. You will not find a better used Sea Sport 24 Explorer. If you are a serious interested purchaser and require more information or would like to set up an appointment for a viewing please text 250.951.8939.
All maintenance performed by Port Boat House as per inspection. Boat is fully winterized each season prior to storage and is serviced each spring prior to launch.
