General Description

"Paladin" is a very well-kept 1988 North Coast 24' express sportfish powered by twin 250hp Cummins Diesels with less than 1,000 hours. (The engines were installed in 2002). What a rare find!! She is very offshore capable with her 54-degree entry deadrise that tapers out to 23 degrees at the transom- she slices through the chop with ease, and she sips fuel. On a typical 14-hour trip to the Norfolk Canyon and back, she burns only about 75 gallons running and trolling for the day. She cruises easily at 25 knots (2400 RPMs) and tops out at about 32 knots (3100 RPMs). Very impressive! Lift kept for much of her life, this boat is in terrific condition.

-Twin Cummins 4B-T250A engines with VDO gages
