Default 2000 Crestliner sportfish 1750 downriggers?

Hey everyone ! I’m new to this forum and in the market for a new boat and I’ve found a 2000 Crestliner sportfish 1750 and was wondering if anyone has ever had one before and if they like them, also wondering if you can run downriggers well off them considering you couldn’t really run them straight off the back because of the step up in the back of the boat... thanks in advance to anyone who can help me with my decision !

I had one for several years that I liked a lot. I had a Johnson 150 on it but I had no downriggers. Very good boat and handled big water well..

I had a 2002 sportfish. Ran a board across the back, mounted to the seat
pedestals. Worked great. Check the pictures. https://www.walleyecentral.com/forum...umid=30&page=2

I have one and I run my downriggers off the gunwales. I installed backer plates underneath the gunwales and I use quick release mounts as well.

Awesome guys thanks for the replys and do u think 8k is reasonable for a 2000 sportfish in great condition with a 115 Yamaha 126 hours on it?

8k sounds like a decent price to me. 126 hours on the motor means the motor was used very little/year if it's a 2000 model motor also.

Check the floor condition around the livewell.

I love my 1850, run a 150 hp with top speed of 42 mph w/gps handles 3-4 footers easily, as long as you are not in a hurry
