Coolest Sports Fishing Boats Ever in Zebulon

For the boating enthusiasts out there, we compiled a list of our favorite sports fishing boats. Let us know what you think.

34 Rybovich

The 34 Rybovich was the original sports fishing boat, and cannot be ignored on any all-time greatest list. Miss Chevy II was custom designed specifically for sports fishing, a first in 1947. Until then, converted cabin cruisers had been used with limited success. The 34 Rybovich eventually became a charter boat in West Palm Beach, Florida and was renamed the Sail Ahoy.

Pursuit 3000 Offshore

Initially a rebadge for its sister company, Tiara, the release of the 3000 Offshore in 1995 established Pursuit as a serious contender in its own right. Its "Palm Beach" look was attractive to many fishermen, as did its winning combination of fishing space and below-deck comfortability, performance and economy.

35 Cabo Express

Coming a year after Cabo's flybridge model had hit the market, the Express became an overnight classic. Because it was so easy and simple to operate, it converted many convertible owners to express owners. The high quality of the construction attracted a slew of interest from buyers, making the Cabo Express and Flybridge models big sellers for the company.

Grady-White 254 Kingfish

The 254 put Grady-White on the map in the 1970s for its wide-beam cuddy cabin, a market the company dominates today. The perfect combination of luxury and fishing utility, the Kingfish was an immediate success with the leading fishing families. The Kingfish's sterndrive powered model revolutionized the outboard fishing boat market.

31 Jupiter

Jupiter's first 31-foot model, released in 1989, started the fast, sleek center console trend that was unique in the market. Most boats before it were geared toward practicality, but the 31 Jupiter exuded sex appeal and style that would not be ignored. It was still a capable fishing vessel, not just a looker, and clearly something special in the fishing boat world.

SeaVee 390 IPS

Welcome the new leader in light-tackle fishing boats. The SeaVee 390 IPS carries Volvo Penta's revolutionary pod drives to performance levels previously unthinkable. It goes sideways faster than most boats in reverse, spins so fast you need to hold on, and it is effortless to dock. The 390 maneuvers so quickly and precisely that it is blowing away the competition.

31 Yellowfin

The 31 Yellowfin was introduced in 2000 and skyrocketed the brand from obscurity to mainstream. Breaking with the center console mold, the 31 made waves in the saltwater fishing boat world with its stepped-hull offshore design and layout. Its list of trophies in competitive fishing tournaments is changing the way sports fishing boats will be modeled in the future.

SeaCraft 20

With a simple center-console that allowed true 360° fishing, the SeaCraft 20 enjoyed wide popularity among guides and anglers alike from the late '60s through the '80s. Based on a 21-foot racing hull of Carl Moesly design, the SeaCraft added longitudinal steps along the hull giving diverse degrees of deadrise in three sections. This Variable Deadrise Hull was deep-V in the center and gradually flattened out to her aft chines, providing a dry and stable ride.

43 Merritt

No list would be complete without the 43 Merritt, widely considered the epitome of sport fishing boats. The 43 looks clean and unostentatious, with a large cockpit, simple controls, and supreme maneuverability. It augured the transition from framed to cold molded construction, inspiring the love for sports fishing in the United States. Only 11 were ever built, and in the hands of the world's top crews, the 43s hold many world records for blue marlin and bluefin tuna fishing. In fact, the bluefin trolling record was set by Captain Buddy Merritt in 1968 aboard the first 43 model and broken in the mid-1980s by the last 43 ever built.

57 Spencer

The 57 Spencer took North Carolina's boat building reputation to a whole new level. Building upon the sturdy, seaworthy models of North Carolina tradition, Spencer added speed and sleekness that brought new attention to the state's boats. Before becoming a shipbuilder in 1996, Paul Spencer worked as a chartermate and captain. His experience helped modernize the look and build of the North Carolina fleet, and the 57 is the epitome of that revolution.
