Known throughout the world for its legendary ride, the Buddy Davis hull is designed to cut through monster head seas, run on rails in following seas, and lie still while drifting in deep troughs waiting for a strike. What's Davis's secret? The bottom. With her deep, narrow entry, LIMITED EDITION will never pound. She slices. With a substantial keel and solid skeg, she never wanders.

With her Carolina pedigree, immaculate condition, and proven track record, she is ready to go for the next serious tournament contender who wants all of the fishability of a proven fishing machine and the creature comforts of a yacht.
She is equipped with: 30, 50, and 80 lb class Shimano trolling tackle. Inflatable tender for shore excursions and exploring . Water and ice makers for extended trips.
