The Master stateroom is forward with an offset queen bed with access to a large hanging locker on either side with a settee to port. A desk on the starboard side of the stateroom can be used as either a computer station or a vanity table. The large head has a bidet with a large shower forward of the toilet.

Miss America is the only 78 Buddy Davis built with an open fly bridge, for a discerning sport fisherman with a flair for extended cruising.  She has 5 staterooms with 6 heads.  You can comfortably sleep 10 people aboard.  Built from Buddy Davis with the ability to cross the Atlantic via the Azores’ on her own bottom.  Reinforced hull with added stringers and 3,000 gallons of fuel for a range of 2000 nautical miles without extended fuel bladders.  Atlas shore power converter on board gives the ability to convert currency and frequency.  Features like stabilizers, a full width staircase to the bridge, a large cavernous tackle storage closet and a day head accessible from outside set this boat apart from other sportfish boats of her size. She is as equally comfortable going out fishing for the day as she is heading to the Pacific for a year!
