Description

Originally a 58' motor yacht custom built in Los Angeles in 1990 from Doug Sharp designs this exceptional sport fishing machine was extended 20' from the bare hull up in 2005, virtually rebuilding the boat.  Ari Kreiss at Cabo Yacht Center in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico transformed the hull and super structure into the 78' Yachtfisher it is today.  It was re-powered with Caterpillar C-18s and Northern Lights 40 KW generators in 2006. The tuna tower and bulbous bow where installed in 2008.  Its unique, well thought out custom fishing related features incorporated into the re-build make this sport fishing machine truly amazing.
