The spacious interior of C.J. might surprise you with it's quality craftsmanship, not usually found in a vessel like this. She is armed with 2 forward facing shock ride seats, one for the skipper and one for the first mate. These 2 positions give you access to all the controls and electronics, while offering an awesome view of what lies ahead. Directly behind the main helm is a bench seat and also a small kitchen on the starboard side, which is equipped with a Dickensen stove, stainless sink and plenty of drawers affording storage space. This space is warm and also allows ample light in from the outside.
Starting forward, she is built to haul, with a large drop down bow door wide enough to drive a full size truck onto the deck. Moving aft, you can access the bathroom door port side or move to the rear open deck from either side of the vessel. The starboard side is home to the sturdy ladder to access the top of the cabin where you can operate the davit to lower or raise the inflatable. She also has a solid radar arch, rod holders, and a commercial grade pot puller. She can be controlled from the main helm or a second station forward on the deck.
The power plant behind Crown Jewels is a pair of John Deere 500 HP marine engines that were installed in 2012. They are coupled to a pair of Sea Fury surface piercing drives. These reliable diesels currently only have 1600 hours on them. This landing craft is armed with 4 8-d marine batteries that serve both as start and house batteries. She also has an inverter, Lewmar anchor wench, and plenty of deck space to run an impressive recreational shrimping or crabbing program.
Crown Jewels has a full set of electronics which includes a Raymarine sounder, radar and plotter. She has an Icom VHF, auto pilot and a surround sound stereo system. You will always be warm and dry with the Dickensen marine oil stove and as a backup, the Heatercraft system that comes off the John Deere mains.
This large format landing craft is turn key and ready for the next chapter in its life. If you have a purpose for the Crown Jewels, give us a call to have a look.
