True Work of Art

Beginning in 1973 Buddy Davis began his boat building career and in 1986 he introduced the 47 Sportfisherman and it became on of the most popular sportfishing boats in her size. Built on a modified-v hull this boat is truly one that can take you there and back. 

Powered by twin 735hp Detroit Diesels she will cruise around 23 knots with top speeds reaching 28 knots. She offers three staterooms, two heads and a full galley. Her owner has done a good job keeping her in top condition and ready to go anytime.

Looking at the 47 Davis from the dock there is no mistake what she is. With her distinctive lines and large cockpit you know she is a true work of art. Stepping into her massive cockpit there is more than enough room for the whole crew. Complete with rigging station, bait freezer, live well and a large in-deck fish box. Stepping thru the teak Salon door you will see an L-shaped sofa to Starboard with plenty of tackle storage underneath with a flat screen TV. and forward of that is her entertainment center, to Port and forward down two steps is the galley. Going forward down three steps you will find a stack unit washer / dryer to port. Just forward there are two guest staterooms, One Port and One Starboard. Both Guest staterooms have over and under bunks with storage under the bottom bunks. Continue forward on the port side is the guest head with access via the portside guest stateroom or from the passageway leading to the master stateroom. Her master stateroom is found forward and included an ensuite private head, island queen berth and tow separate cedar lined hanging closets.
