Boat:
Custom 26 foot Bemm Boatworks w-26 Imensa replica.  This boat was built in Texas 100%.  It is not an Imensa hull that has been finished out.  A new 26 Imensa was straightened/smoothed and had a few drain holes moved or removed completely.  The transom was raised about 2.5”.  Then a mold was made of the modified boat.  This boat has all American made fiberglass hull which is a little thicker than the Imensa version.  You can feel the difference and stiffness/weight on the water.  I am not saying the Imensa is bad, but this boat is much stronger.  The entire floor is filled with marine grade closed cell foam including gunnels except for the bilge pump area in the back.  The floor, casting platform, and rear storage compartments are made of ¾” high grade marine plywood with fiberglass over it.  It is a very heavy duty non skid textured finish.  The stringers run lengthwise instead of horizontal as most Imensas are made.  There are rigging tubes throughout boat under the floor.  Two gel cell batteries mounted in bow with Perko switch and heavy 2 gauge cable to the motor.  The console is a custom made mold which was a narrowed to fit this boat and handle a 44 gallon fuel tank under the console.  The aluminum on the console has been reinforced to handle the removable 15’ telescoping stainless outriggers.  The outriggers are really slick.  They allow you to move around the boat while fighting a fish or checking lines without moving any rods.  I can troll 4 rods with ease and good separation.  They are used as extra console rod holders when I leave the outriggers at home.  There are 12 rod holders total on boat plus the umbrella tube.  I like big soft side coolers and an extra 5 gallon fuel can under the leaning post which has the normal storage under the seat and four rod holders.  Extra rear facing pad on leaning post so other people can comfortably watch the rods facing backwards.  There is another removable 55 gallon collapsible fuel cell that can be used but I have never needed it.  There is a 75 quart Yeti in front of console and a 150 quart coffin box with custom rod holders as part of the cradle.  This cradle also has a slot for the stainless steel folding umbrella.  Originally this cradle had a 250 quart Yeti but it was stolen but can be put back with ease if someone wanted the bigger coffin box.  The umbrella is wider than the boat when in use.  I troll with it up for extra shade and then just collapse to run to the next location.  The trim tabs are made by Andros Boatworks and are specially designed for panga boats.  The trim tabs are flared special to direct water toward center of boat which aids in shallow water performance much like a tunnel would so you can run the motor higher.  The trim tabs have the upgraded $400 led lighted console switch which allows you to see how much tab you are using instead of counting and guessing like most systems.  The trim tabs help with shallow water launches and really help with cross seas so you can stay drier.  I would recommend the trim tabs for any panga just for the ability to make it much drier in cross seas.  You can also increase your speed in cross seas by about 3 mph because it stays level and on plane better.  There is a really nice stereo that has sirius satellite, CD, and Ipod docking station and waterproof speakers mounted in bow.  Large screen Garmin color GPS and plotter.  Serious offshore style thru hull transducer mounted in bilge next to big bilge pump.  4” setback Bob’s jack plate with 6” vertical lift.  Stainless Sea Star hydraulic steering.  Custom aluminum Coastline trailer with torsion bars instead of axles and leaf springs with spare tire on all aluminum matching wheels.
Motor:
2014 Etec 200hp HO.  This is the big block model with extra water intakes mounted in the nose cone from the factory.  It was bought new in March of 2014 with a 6 year warranty that is transferable.  The current prop is a Power Tech OFX 4 blade in a 19 pitch.  I have a spare 4 blade stainless Evinrude prop in 19 pitch also for back up.  I have the flared water intakes to increase the water pressure in elevated shallow water situations.  Boat is currently getting 51 mph WOT and cruising 38 mph at 4000 rpms with a mild load.  A big offshore 3 blade would increase speed/mileage and flares are easily removed if you want more speed.  Driving this boat will remind you of a sit down jet ski.  There is serious torque and fun.  

I am interested in selling in about 2 months or once the summer is over.  This is an extremely nice custom boat that is kept in great shape.  My reason for selling is that I want to build a 33 Imensa.  This is a one of a kind.  There are additional posts in the International Boats section and the post is called 26 Imensa repowered with 200hp.  There are extensive details talking about the original owner (Rooney) and what i did to the boat for my personal taste.  Please enjoy photos.  For additional details and pricing call 361-813-7331.  Looking for a buyer that wants the best 26 Panga available new or used.

Hi....

What basis are you using for the 31' Imemsa as I thought they built a 29' or 33'?

Please post pictures of the build.

Thanks

It is August 2017.  I am looking to sell the boat.  I have a five month old baby and it is time to start a build project for the future.

I had the required maintenance done to extend the etec warranty.  The boat has 3 more years of full factory warranty that started in June 2017.  I had the hours checked.  It was only 72 hours in June.  It has about 85 hours now so it is still very young and fresh.  Everything is operational except a tail light on the trailer which is on my list.  The boat is a lot of fun.  The fuel mileage is remarkable even with a 200hp.  I did a 80 mile round trip in choppy 3 foot seas and only burned 21 gallons.  It will get over 4 mpg if you let it cruise in nice conditions.  Trolling is about 7 mpg.  It is fun to let fly also, but then you miss the mileage.  This is a fabulous boat looking for great new home.  I will regret selling, but I have an itch to go a little bigger.  Asking price is $43,000.  I have considerably more into it plus labor and love.

Thanks
