Here's an opportunity that does not come along very often. Offered for sale is a beautiful 55' East Bay Boat Works (Ricky Gillikin) hull #42. The keel was laid in 1997 and boat was splashed in October of 2000. This was one of the last boats Ricky Gillikin built before he passed away in November of 2004.
"THUNDER" is a SINGLE owner boat and has extensive records. Incredibly efficient hull with Ricky's legendary round bottom design. The boat is powered with twin MTU 8V2000s 900HP (3200 original). She cruises 27 knots at 1950RPM (80% load) burning only 62 gph. She has 6 berths total with a 2 stateroom, 2 head layout and stacked companionway bunks. Very spacious salon/galley with teak cabinets and a generous cockpit for 55'.
