Miscellaneous Fishing Equipment

This Parker was purchased by Scott Hudson and Buddy Tison. The reason we selected this particular combination was due to the economy and longivity of a diesel as well as the fire safety aspects of a less volatile fuel than gasoline. Scott works for a construction company and Buddy is retired. Scott is unable to use the boat due to increasing demands on his schedule. It is to large for one person to handle loading and unloading from the trailer easily. Scott last year became the father of Shelby and any chance of having the time to go fishing was eliminated. Thus we are selling the boat and its related equipment. If you are interested in owning a Parker 2520 you should consider this boat. It is well equipped for fishing and great on fuel economy. We have run this boat up to sixty miles offshore, trolled all day and only burned fifty-five gallons of diesel. We believe that the person who comes to look at this boat will want to take it home.

For more information contact Scott Hudson at 904-268-0094 or contact Buddy Tison at [email protected]
We can send a pdf file that contains photos of various features.


Yes it is. Only wish now that we had not spent so much setting it up for our our style of fishing. But situations change and since we are unable to use it we must sell. With the fuel costs now this is a very economical engine to operate. Most of the boats here are King Fish boats, ie. Fountains, Donzi and Contenders. We looked at all of them before we ordered this and believe me this was our best choice. Dry, warm in the winter. See those center consoles going through the jetties with their rain suits on, we just turn on the wipers. On a cold day just shut the door. Plenty of storage for all that fishing junk. Of course you already know all this.

This boat was stored inside that building until last year. Company keeps expanding and they need the space for offices. If my partner would quit his job he would have time to fish, but for some reason he wants to keep working. Since I am retired that concept is foreign to me.
You boat looks great in the pictures posted the year you bought it but what is the current looks of the boat. Some of the pictures were time stamped the year of the boat but I want to see what it looks like right now, today with the trailer.

How much are you asking for your boat. If it was posted I did not see it Sorry. Where exactly are you located b/c I will more than likely be willing to travel to there with my truck if I liked the boat?

Tight Lines,

The boat is in Jacksonville, FL. It was stored in the building in the background until Last year. It is in very good condition. There is nothing that you could see from a picture that would show any change.I can send a pdf that has more pictures. Contact me at [email protected] and I can send it. $64500 is what we are asking. There are more photos at http://boatstore.floridasportsman.com/c ... 28061&item
May be too far to travel since you are in California.
