Vessel Overview

Carolina Gentleman is a great boat for fishing and cruising alike. She has a 2 stateroom 1 head layout making all of the spaces large and comfortable.  She is packed with creature comforts typically found on much larger yachts.  Her speed and sea keeping ability are unmatched for this sized convertible making your time on the water a memorable one. 




The first thing you notice when you walk in the salon will be the beautiful teak finishes. She boats an upgraded headliner and a large built in L-Shaped sofa with custom storage.   You will also find a new flat screen TV hooked up to the Trac Vision SAT system.


The galley has a large STAINLESS fridge/freezer and microwave. The teak cabinetry offers plenty of storage for dry goods, flatware, pots, pans and glassware. The large counter is perfect with the 2 bar stools for a quick snack.  


The port stateroom features a large over under setup with plenty of storage for clothes and personal gear. This not just some small space for the kids but an actual stateroom your largest guests will find comfortable.

The master stateroom features a large island berth for 2 located centerline.  With cedar lined hanging lockers and a TV it makes the perfect place to retreat after a great day on the water. 


The full sized head is so a nice and spacious with a built in sink and vacu-flush head. You will not find a larger shower on a boat this size and is complete with a seat.  You wont be bumping your elbows or head in here.

Laundry Room:

Plan on spending weeks at a time in the islands ? No problem she has a washer dryer so you will always look your best.


The cockpit is the perfect place to take in the view and relax.  A NEW cockpit seating setup was just installed!!! She has a large tuna door, tackle center, chilled drink box, and stereo remote.  She even features a Glendenning shower power cable to keep things clean.  Additional features include a large in deck fish box with macerator, outriggers, a live well, fresh and salt water washdowns. 

Fly Bridge

The fly bridge features 2 large bench seats with new vinyl so everyone can enjoy the ride. The helm seats have been upgraded to large Release chairs making extended days a pleasure. The electronic control 6V92 DDEC engines push her along nicely at 29 mph. There is even a teaser reel mounted up here so the captain can control the action.
