Coolest Sports Fishing Boats Ever in Centralia

For the boating enthusiasts out there, we compiled a list of our favorite sports fishing boats. Let us know what you think.

Ocean 40 Super Sport

Launching New Jersey's Leek family into prominence, the Ocean 40 Super Sport debuted in 1977. Boasting a top speed of 30 knots, unprecedented for the time, the 40 was the first of a series of successful designs by the Ocean building company. Ocean eventually became the leader in the convertible- and express-boat markets, as many imitators failed to match the quality construction and solid value of Ocean yachts.

54 Bertram

Running from 1981 to 1993, the 54 Bertram is one of the best-selling large sports fishermen of all time. Built ruggedly, the 54's impressive deep-V hull was able to withstand waters that would keep most boats on the dock. Its large cockpit made it a favorite for both weekend fishermen and tournament pros, making the 54 one of the most widely admired fishing boats ever.

35 Cabo Express

Coming a year after Cabo's flybridge model had hit the market, the Express became an overnight classic. Because it was so easy and simple to operate, it converted many convertible owners to express owners. The high quality of the construction attracted a slew of interest from buyers, making the Cabo Express and Flybridge models big sellers for the company.

Pursuit 3000 Offshore

Initially a rebadge for its sister company, Tiara, the release of the 3000 Offshore in 1995 established Pursuit as a serious contender in its own right. Its "Palm Beach" look was attractive to many fishermen, as did its winning combination of fishing space and below-deck comfortability, performance and economy.

34 Rybovich

The 34 Rybovich was the original sports fishing boat, and cannot be ignored on any all-time greatest list. Miss Chevy II was custom designed specifically for sports fishing, a first in 1947. Until then, converted cabin cruisers had been used with limited success. The 34 Rybovich eventually became a charter boat in West Palm Beach, Florida and was renamed the Sail Ahoy.

26 Regulator

Built for the treacherous shoals and inlets of the Outer Banks, the 26 Regulator outgrew its North Cackalacky roots to become an iconic figure of fishing boats in many regions of the country. The Regulator's deep-V hull is something of a legend for its exceptional handling in rough waters. The 26 is solid, practical, and enduring.

22 Pathfinder

Initiating the movement toward versatile bay boats is the 22 Pathfinder. It success has redefined what a bay boat should be and solidified the 22's reputation as the SUV of the water.

Grady-White 254 Kingfish

The 254 put Grady-White on the map in the 1970s for its wide-beam cuddy cabin, a market the company dominates today. The perfect combination of luxury and fishing utility, the Kingfish was an immediate success with the leading fishing families. The Kingfish's sterndrive powered model revolutionized the outboard fishing boat market.

53 Hatteras

Representing the standard in offshore fishing boats is the 53 Hatteras. First produced in 1969, the Hatteras combined a spacious cockpit with a comfortable living area to make it a favorite of the big production fishing boat world. Its heavy build made for a stable, if wet, ride, and became the model to emulate for the modern boat builders.

57 Spencer

The 57 Spencer took North Carolina's boat building reputation to a whole new level. Building upon the sturdy, seaworthy models of North Carolina tradition, Spencer added speed and sleekness that brought new attention to the state's boats. Before becoming a shipbuilder in 1996, Paul Spencer worked as a chartermate and captain. His experience helped modernize the look and build of the North Carolina fleet, and the 57 is the epitome of that revolution.

43 Merritt

No list would be complete without the 43 Merritt, widely considered the epitome of sport fishing boats. The 43 looks clean and unostentatious, with a large cockpit, simple controls, and supreme maneuverability. It augured the transition from framed to cold molded construction, inspiring the love for sports fishing in the United States. Only 11 were ever built, and in the hands of the world's top crews, the 43s hold many world records for blue marlin and bluefin tuna fishing. In fact, the bluefin trolling record was set by Captain Buddy Merritt in 1968 aboard the first 43 model and broken in the mid-1980s by the last 43 ever built.
