Founder Richard Garlington realized his dream of building the perfect fishing boat in 1980. His vision was to create a practical, streamlined, clean, first-class, sportfishing boat. He’d be proud of his legacy today. A Garlington is known for their tournament ready, sweeping, graceful beauty, and seaworthiness in the open waters. Their cored composite, lightweight, sturdy hulls have a world-renowned reputation for ensuring a smooth, quiet, high performing ride, whether in a light chop or heavy seas. At any speed, they're responsive, free of pounding and spray.
These elegant, perfectly proportioned vessels made for sport and comfort, with the bridge layout that provides a 360º view from the unusually comfortable helm. At a glance, the captain can quickly view the gauge cluster with all controls in close reach. The spacious interior provides a relaxing, peaceful place to unwind after a hard day and long-hauls complimented with plenty of storage. Fish anywhere in the world confidently aboard one of these low profile, wave-slicing, high-performance vessels designed for the discerning, avid, big-game fishermen.
The Garlington DNA takes great pride in cleanly designed, expertly constructed, smooth riding, powerful vessels with a sharp, clean aesthetic and made for serious sports fishermen, tournaments, and cruising. Their 44’ to 61’Express Series is the quintessential open sportfish. The 61’ Flybridge is a step up providing increased space and luxury uncommon for a sportfish. The bridge is noticeably clear of overhead boxes with well-shielded angled instrumentation cabinet to maximize visibility.
Craftsmanship is impeccable with attention paid to every detail. Every component is considered, right down to the cleats with oversized eye-holes for easy threading. The Garlington design hallmark of simplicity seen above and below deck; the in-deck stainless steel freezer helps to open and declutter the cockpit. The salon boasts a creative layout for the island bar replacing the typical galley-dinette keeping to the clean open design. The teak decks have well-placed cover boards to provide extra traction and reduce fatigue of legs and feet. The cockpit has perfectly sized fiberglass gutters that allow water and debris to exit the scuppers. Below deck, the engine and separate compressor compartments have plenty of space for ease of maintenance.
The custom Garlington is a fisherman's dream with performance, layout, ease of control, storage and rigging, all designed for owners' who have true love and passion for the sport.
