Buddy Davis Yachts are world renowned for building some of the best performing rough water sportfishers. These yachts stand out in any marina with their signature bow flare and stunning lines, and “Honey” is no exception. The exterior is purpose designed for big fishing adventures. The cockpit is well equipped with a live-well, in deck fish box, and a custom Bluewater fighting chair. The flybridge is open and very comfortable with twin pedestal helm seats and forward bench seating. The interior is bright and the step down galley gives the air-conditioned salon the feel of a much larger yacht. After the extensive re-fit in 2018 this custom sportfishing yacht is a turn key investment in fun and adventure.
