Our Favorite Fishing Boats Ever in Warrington
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.
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.
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.
Boston Whaler Nauset
Reputed to be the first production center console in the world, the Nauset changed fishing boat design forever. The design remains the most popular in the world, and rightfully so. Their "unsinkable" design made it one of the most popular fishing boats in all of history, with ads showing a boat sawed completely in half still returning to shore. Thousands of Nausets were sold, primarily on the East and Gulf Coasts of the US, and spawned later popular Boston Whaler models Montauk, Menemsha, and Newport.

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.
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.
The 31 Contender is an icon, one of the best-selling boats of its size in all of history. Its sturdy construction, intelligent layout, and high-class performance made it very popular with fisherman around the country. You are likely to see one in any dock, and it has posted a respectable list of tournament victories as well.
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.
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.
