FULL SPECIFICATIONS

Broker Remarks

It is rare that a pedigreed cold-molded 45’ Gamefisherman Express comes available for sale. The CHIEF has benefited from a diligent, full-time captain supported by a meticulous owner with an “open” checkbook. The CHIEF is offered for sale by a market aware seller with a turn-key vessel. The CHIEF runs into a head sea like a much larger vessel. She runs soft and dry and offers a very clean rolling wake. Even while backing down hard, her cockpit remains dry.  Replacement cost approaches 2.5m.

Throughout his enjoyable ownership of the CHIEF, this Gamefisherman for sale has been mechanically and cosmetically upgraded by its owner. She shows pride of ownership and is ready for a new owner to enjoy as the seller has upgraded to a larger custom sportfish.

Won over $ 1,000,000 in Mid-Atlantic 500 as "GOT GAME"

At a half load of fuel, the captain reports the following:

1500 RPM’s        20 knots

1850 RPM’s        25/26 knots

1950 RPM’s        29 knots & 44 gallons per hour (80% load)

2050 RPM’s        32 knots & 50 gallons per hour (85% load)

2300 RPM’s        36 knots
