An impossible jewel to find has just come on the market.  The 51' 1987 Ricky Scarborough boat "March Hare" is available for a limited time only.  Re-powered in 2017 with twin remanufactured Cummins 8.3 LTE 500hp (3200 hours) engines, she cruises an easy 23 burning about 34 gallons per hour.  She has relatively new Garmin electronics, bait freezer, huge salon, companionway bunks, and private master stateroom.  She also features an enclosed head with shower stall, galley down with drawer-style refrigeration, tackle storage area in the companionway, salon, and cockpit, transom fishbox, generator, air conditioning, and very traditional Carolina lines!!  Ricky Scarborough is known throughout the sportfishing industry as one of the early pioneers of what has become to be known as the true "Custom Carolina" classics.  This boat is of the original  "plank on frame" construction method, and her design has influenced multiple Carolina builders since her completion. This pretty girl is not something you find every day.  Buy her as she sits for an incredible charter boat, or buy her with the idea of "yachting her out".  Either way, she is the real deal. A true and original Ricky Scarborough boat.  Very rare find.
