The beautiful profile of this yacht makes her stand out in the crowd. As one of the largest production express sportfisherman on the market, she is world renown for her capabilities on the water.

With its 15 ft-8" beam, 13 degree transom deadrise, and modified V hull, with a well flared bow the ride is efficient, stable and dry. The huge cockpit comes complete with a beautifully designed tackle center, a transom well with a window, and two huge in-deck fish boxes. The engine room beneath the bridge deck is fully accessible for engine maintenance and inspection. The large single stateroom is appointed with cedar lined closets and drawers, a large easy to make up berth, and accent lighting. The meticulously finished and air conditioned salon with teak and holly sole, designer wall and leather pull out couch, is large enough for entertaining and at night can be used as an additional berth. The electronically controlled windshield vent, transom door with gate, tuna tower, add to the fishability and comfort of this beautiful boat.
