Custom Carolina 50' Omie Tillet Sportsman


When people mention Classic North Carolina Boat Builders, Omie Tillett's name is always at the top of the list. Here is a truly rare opportunity to own his #3 hull and what is even more appealing is the fact that she has just undergone a full repower. With a new set of factory reman 600 hp QSC Cummins, gears, electronic controls, shafts, dripless shaft seals and cutless bearings, this marlin magnet is now faster, smoother and more economical than she's ever been. The entire bottom was also stripped, re-glassed and finished in the fall of 2016 along with other items. She is considered by many to be the prettiest and most proportionally accurate boat in her class. Either way, there is no arguing her looks, ride, fishability and classic appeal. With a range that allows for longer runs, a 2 stateroom and 2 full head layout and ample electronics, this rig will get the job done in many of the world's exotic hot spots or keep on rolling right here in her own back yard in the Carolinas. She also fits right into the current trend of an older custom private boat that could be personalized and updated pretty easily relative to her layout. Either way she is a true one of a kind. Give us a call and come take a look.
