General Description

Spencer Yachts have enjoyed unprecedented popularity and success on the tournament circuit. It's rare to find any Spencer on the brokerage market which can be described as low hours, but this boat has only had two owners since new with practically no tournament usage. Spencer built 8 boats with IPS power packages, several have had magazine articles written about them documenting their remarkable maneuverability and economy features. This 49' may be the best of those 8 Spencer IPS boats, with the right balance of weight and the preferred larger series II drives.  

A very special boat that has had only two exceptional owners since new. Built with virtually no budget for an experienced sportfisherman with a detail-oriented captain's oversight, this vessel offers a combination of amazing sea worthiness, remarkably easy operation and fishability, plus beautiful dock presence. Ceramic coated from top to waterline, with a new C-Worthy enclosure and recent bridge-deck upholstery, this boat is a showstopper at every dock. Absolutely ideal for light crew usage or capable of entertaining large groups with her spacious climate-controlled bridge deck, this vessel can quickly adapt to many gameplans.

Her interior was just completely refreshed by Powless Yacht Services is in "as-new" condition and features two staterooms with three large berths and two heads each with showers. There is also a useable aft galley and a booth dinette. Teak cabinetry with raised panel doors is luxurious plus the seating and berths are comfortable. Beautiful solid doors and arched radius frames with top quality hardware. Built with a high detail spec this boat has had light use, has been bristol-level maintained, and it shows.

The salon is entered from the bridge-deck through a sliding plexiglass door and there are 5 steps down to a finished wood teak and holly sole. To the portside is the L-shaped galley with beautiful teak cabinetry with raised panel doors and semi-gloss finish. Just forward of the galley to port is a teak dinette area with Baby Ostrich leatherette seating and a bullnose-edge Corian tabletop (Archeologic) that matches the galley countertop. There are two cove cabinets above the dinette area. Across from the dinette on the starboard side is a wall-mounted HD 4k TV. Forward is the entry door to the master stateroom. Back aft to the starboard side of the entry stairway is the door to the guest head. To the centerline port of the stairway are two steps down to the entry door to the guest stateroom. The entire interior has had updating from late 2022 into 2023 with all interior Whisper Wall Majilite being renewed (wave texture) as well as the headliner and seating by Powless Yacht Services. Shows as new.

Twin Volvo D11 diesels are 10.8 liter displacement, inline 6-cylinder with high-pressure fuel injection and twin-entry turbo with pulse charging. They produce 700hp each at 2300rpm. Coupled with the duo-prop IPS drive system (IPS900, this boat has been upgraded to Gen II), the performance results are equivalent to much higher power with conventional drivetrains while enjoying dramatically better fuel economy. This drive system also features the station keeping Dynamic Positioning System, including a one-button slow-trolling feature.

During typical usage, the IPS drive package sends engine exhaust out the rear hub of the drives. This boat has the option of "exhaust bypass" which when fishing/trolling clears the turbulence of the exhaust by diverting up to a waterline bypass egress on the transom. This results in remarkably clean water while trolling. When up and running (over 1500rpm) or with the bypass switched off, the exhaust is underwater, lowering engine decibel-level.

The full 2000-hour service was completed at 1890hrs in 2021, which included intercooler services and pumps. This boat runs excellent with easy handling and sea ability (and fish-ability).
