Limited Production!

The Bimini Blue is a limited production 38 Dawson Express hardtop.  She is unique from other express boats with her raised helm area - featuring three helm chairs. Just aft of the helm, port and starboard bench seats provide abundant seating and storage.  The Bimini Blue features twin Detroit Diesels 6-71's.  In addition, the Bimini Blue had a Northern Lights generator installed new in 2005 with only 378 hours. The Bimini Blue is a serious fishing machine with a great ride thanks to her 24 degree deadrise.  Yet she offers a very comfortable interior. This is a lot of boat for the money!
