"Truly a rare find for a Original Buddy Davis"

Needs some work but has all the right stuff!!

This is the boat that made buddy Davis famous throughout the sport fishing community. Perfectly designed for its purpose, the 61 Davis is generally regarded as one of the best "sea" boats ever built.

Same owner since 1997. Only 700 hours on the Cats and 1000 hours on the Gensets, Four stateroom, three head layout with two queens and two bunk rooms. Pipewelders tuna tower, Murry Bros. fighting chair, water maker, dingy davit and 1800 gallons of fuel. All the right stuff.
