Further Comments

MacKenzie only built 20 of their 30’ model…and this survivor is the best one. That’s thanks to the knowledge, skill and efforts by this owner. You’ve heard the expression, “It was a labor of love”…well this owner proved it. Aimee Beth underwent a six-year restoration and the attention to detail was unbelievable. Planks were carefully replaced, the transom was rebuilt, the bottom was completely replaced an all-new cockpit sole installed, custom features were incorporated such as the creation of a proper radar mast, the nifty two-part motor box.

Vessel Walkthrough

Aimee Beth has a traditional bass boat layout. Through the centerline companion way doors, you go down three steps to a galley on port and an enclosed head on starboard. Next forward are port and starboard single berths. The forepeak is set up for rod storage. A forward cabin top hatch provides plenty of ventilation.
