23 1/2 foot Sport boat with a 300 hp Mercruiser 350 MAG MPI and a Bravo III drive. This high-40 MPH runabout sleeps 2 adults and features a large sunpad, walkthrough windshield, wetbar, and a V-berth cabin. Just reduced in price as owner wants this to be the next 232 Captiva sold.
A Word About the Workmanship
Without question, the 232 Captiva Cuddys gelcoat and mold work are well-above production-boat standards. Additional graphic accents have been cleanly applied in vinyl tape. Behind the 20-mil gelcoat (25 mils below the waterline) you’ll find a 2-ounce-chop skin coat, Coremat in the hullsides and chopped strand mat. Laminants also include three layers of 2415 Fabmat, which has also been used to encapsulate seven-ply pressure-treated plywood. To support the considerable engine hatch/sunpad when open, the manufacturer installed two gas struts. The engine itself is lag-bolted to the stringers and further secured by the standard transom assembly. Engine compartment wiring is generally well supported and protected, and the bilge is finished with gelcoat for easy cleaning.
