    My uncle just retired, and this has been his dream boat for 30 years. There are very few that come up for sale, so anyone who knows someone, please let me know!

    Ive had 3 over the years, not sure where he plans on boating but I was on a bay with tight chop and LOTS of boat wakes and it was a handful with all the rocking. Offshore it wasn’t too bad with further wave spacing but in the bay it was an experience. Rolling peanut butter off bread would be an understatement. Any questions you might have don’t hesitate to ask. Cool boat for what it is. Been 100 miles offshore multiple times in it and so did next owner.

    When I was growing up, my dad had a 26 with a Volvo in it, cool boat but it rocked alot.
    Last time I was at Grover's in freeport, they where talking about selling Mr. Grovers restored groverbilt. You should give them a call.

    Way back when Al Grover was building them, they had 15 docked in a row behind the dealer. I had a 25’ Mako I bought from Al. When a party boat would come by, those Grover boats all rocked like rubber ducks endlessly.
