Turn-key other side tuna fishing and Bahamas ready workhorse.  Boat has been rigorously maintained and optimized for family and fishing adventures.  Boat routinely makes 120nm trips offshore.  Extensive refit completed in 2015 with several upgrades over the last several years to increase capabilities and extend range for long runs safely and comfortably.  Reliable mechanical systems throughout.  Solid hull with full 24 degree transom deadrise lets you fish in any conditions you can tolerate.  Great boat for most everything with ample seating and storage space.  Cruises, fishes, and parties at the sandbar easily.  Easy handling with twin engines makes for easy single handed use.  Proven fish raiser, has captured every Atlantic billfish species. Trailer available, not included.  Tower breaks down for transport.  Lift kept, so no bottom growth or blisters to worry about.
