2000 Doral 300 SE
| There are plenty of 30 foot express cruisers on the market today but, what sets this Doral 300SE apart from all the rest is the expansive cockpit. |
This unique design was obviously created for outdoor entertaining with seating for seven or eight guests and room left over for a wet bar behind the double helm seat.
A cockpit fridge completes the package.
This Doral also boasts a stainless steel radar arch, full camper canvas, city water hook up, windless, a full galley with fridge and microwave (note - this boat has TWO refrigerators), a mid-cabin berth and a swim platform with built ins to hold several large fenders.
There is also a LOT of storage for a 30' boat!
Large locker off the swim platform, plenty of storage on the deck, and below deck there are huge closets all over.
The engine room is well laid out and very roomy for a 30 foot boat.
There is a door within a door to get into the engine room, so it is very easy to just peek in there before during or after your boating day.
This model does not have AC, heat or a generator.
Which is why it is priced the way it is.
But Doral did build in the ductwork for heat/AC, so it should not be hard to add.
We never saw the need.
We tracked our burn rate for 2021 and 2022 (so far) seasons, and we typically burn an average of 10 gallons an hour!
Wow, many 30' boats burn twice that!
Both engines work great, start right up and run quietly.
Same with the outdrives.
The radar is works great, the screen size is small but it works well.
No GPS as we use a ipad with the Navionics app and we are taking the ipad.
This boat has 4 batteries - one starter battery for each engine, and two house batteries in relay, so you will have plenty of power while at anchor.
Starboard side risers and manifolds replaced with OEM in July of 2020.
Sorry, no info on when the port side risers and manifolds were done but they run cool.
FYI, when the starboard risers and manifolds were replaced, the old ones were fine.
Fresh water heat exchanger tubes also cleaned in 2020.
Other recent work is a new steering cable before the season in 2022.
The canvas and eisenglass are in good shape, except one small part of the canvas top which needs a new zipper.
September 2022 update.
The Doral is on a slip in Falmouth Harbor and easy to show.
The potential to rent the slip for the remainder of the season exists.
But not for future years, just for the remainder of 2022.
