The Deltega yard in Vancouver built hundreds of very rugged fishing vessels over several decades and has established a reputation for excellent quality and longevity of product. Runnin Wild is a custom build and appears to be representative of the high quality usually produced by this yard. The hull layup is solid Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) and is in above average condition for a vessel of this vintage. The deck and topsides are also GRP and cored with Balsa and plywood for lightness and rigidity. The vessel is powered by two popular and iconic Volvo Penta 230hp marine gasoline engines through Volvo Penta duo-prop stern-drives. The port engine has fewer than 1,000 hours and the stbd engine is brand new!
The final interior fit-out and completion was done by the original, and obviously knowledgeable, owner and is of good quality and visually pleasing. A mix of Oak, Ash and Purple Heart gives the cabin a feeling of inviting warmth. Storage abounds with multiple lockers and bins.
This vessel has a sophisticated hard-chine hull-design somewhat reminiscent of high-end vessels of that era. It rises to the plane quickly without fuss and rides true and level. It strides over chop smoothly and is a good sea-boat with beam carried well aft to provide excellent stability.
This vessel is worth serious consideration at this very competitive price and is not a “project boat”. Runnin Wild is in good condition for its age. It is under-valued for a quick sale and will appeal to somebody who wants to invest a small amount of time to attend to the cockpit sole planking. This vessel’s worth will be increased quite considerably by a small investment of sweat equity!
