This 65' Custom Sport Fisherman was built in 2000 by Jim Smith with a deep-vee design by Donald Blount and was purchased by her current owner at the end of 2014. After an extensive survey, all findings were corrected and True Grit underwent a comprehensive refit throughout in 2015/2016. As a result, she is in immaculate better-than-new condition mechanically, structurally, and cosmetically. Totally updated inside and outside. In addition, she had an air-conditioned mezzanine added in the cockpit and a Palm Beach Tuna Tower added. The current owner always maintains True Grit in perfect, turn-key condition.
Recent upgrades in June 2019 include:
