Used & Demo Boats


(We are often out on the water and unavailable!)

Contrary to our new, retail boats that are mostly still factory wrapped and have NOT been in the water, the following MIKCo fleet and demo boats have various levels of use. All are discounted, priced to fairly reflect their condition, and sold "as is". We reserve our full fledged, multi-hour demos, with fitting advice, boat design, manufacturing differences, and service for our new boat sales. But you are welcome to make an appointment to come out to Peaks Island to see these value priced boats – just please understand that we can’t provide our new retail price service, time and education, nor do we offer shipping for our used and demo boats. We are familiar with each boat offered below, and will try and help you with each boat’s strengths and needs.
