Six Opportunities to own a Custom Sportfish at Galati Yacht Sales
Owning a custom sportfish is a dream for sportfish enthusiasts. Custom boats are often built to exact design and style specifications to create the classic and timeless “custom look”. If you have ever wanted to own a custom sportfish, Galati Yacht Sales currently has six custom sportfish opportunities that were all built tailored to the demands of a committed sportfisherman.
“Kelsey Lee”, a 78’ Garlington is one of only three 78s built by Garlington and the only one with a skybridge for ultimate comfort and fish ability. Meticulously maintained by her full-time crew, this vessel is truly flawless. The owner has spared no expense and in 2011 installed new engines and electronics along with a complete paint job. This yacht has everything you need to travel globally … huge refrigerated fish holds, giant bait tank, tons of storage space and a beautiful comfortable interior. Kelsey Lee will be available for private showings at Miami Yacht Show on Collins February 15th-18th.
“Loud Enuff” is a 76 Mark Willis Custom Sportfish yacht that is a top pedigree of custom yacht building. Offering incredible performance, sea keeping ability, and quality at every turn this yacht is a must see for the most perceptive of sportfishing enthusiasts. The current owner has maintained this yacht to the highest of standards and recently upgraded the interior of this yacht, navigational electronics, and AV equipment to top of the line systems. In addition, a new bottom job, prop speed and prop reconditioning was just completed in July 2017.
“Gotcha” is a custom built 65’ Robin Smith that was designed for quality and comfort. She is a premier traveling sportfish battle wagon with a great Carolina Ride and extended range. She’s set up and ready to go with all the accessories needed for traveling or making comfortable runs to and from any buyer’s home port. “Gotcha’s” Carolina pedigree is matched only by her legacy of catching marlin in the sport’s best destinations. The owner is a serious seller and offers are encouraged. Select trades considered.
The 58′ Monterey Sportfish, “Miss Anna Maria” represents the true heritage of Monterey’s fine pedigree and craftsmanship of a quality timeless custom built vessel. She has been recently updated and equipped with an extensive list of cosmetic and mechanical improvements for her next owner to benefit from, including a recent overhaul of the starboard engine (June 2017). She is a proven off shore fishing machine, having successfully fished the Gulf of Mexico, Bahamas and Caribbean. Originally built as legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus’ personal boat, she has an equally legendary ride, with smooth clean appealing lines, and a proven engine package with low fuel burn making her a great economical and comfortable fishing machine.
“Perra Mala”, a Spencer 57 offers an unmatched “Carolina” ride while only burning 64 gallons per hour at 30 kn. Some of her recent updates include fresh paint on foredeck, mask faired and painted, new sat TV, blacked out buggy top, refinished woodwork in salon and galley, new carpet throughout, recovered couches, underwater lights, led engine room lighting, JL stereo system, heat exchangers cleaned, new exhaust risers, and much more. Boat is turn-key and ready to go.
Custom 42 Gamefisherman, “Freebie Dos,” was built to do some serious big game fishing and was originally built by the Aussie Rules in 2002. She was part of a worldwide mothership operation that fished the South Pacific and Eastern Atlantic. She then became “Chunda” where she fished extensively for record Blue Marlin off the island of Madeira. She features a custom Jack Hopewell tower, simple and easy interior, center helm pod with lift up lid to access electronics, teak deck and covering boards. In 2015, she was re-powered at Merritt’s with CAT C-7 and has extended warranty until November 1, 2020.
For the owner/operator who wants a well-thought out sportsfisherman, this 2017 Tides 45 Convertible should not be missed. Custom-built in Sarasota, Florida, this boat was built to perform – she is extremely fuel-efficient with a burn rate of less than 50 gph at cruise. Built by a fisherman for fishermen, the interior could be described as minimalist with comfort, she accommodates four with a spacious two stateroom, two head configuration. The engine room layout allows for easy access to the two Cummins Diesels and has A/C, which is a great benefit when below servicing the engines.
Other stand-out features include: Ice Chipper, Water maker, Mezzanine storage refrigeration and dual above deck live wells.
The Tides 45 Convertibles comes with new boat warranties and will be available for showings at the Miami Yacht Show – Galati Yacht Sales Brokerage Display, located on Collins Ave near Entrance 2: Display 249-262B.
