Description: G&S Boats 57 Sports Fisher
From the drawing board & build team of the famed G&S boatyard in Florida comes this highly customised & immaculately kept custom 57 foot sports fisher "It`s On".

Viking, Bertram & Hatteras buyers should seriously consider this Custom Sports Fisher.

Buddy Gentry & Steve Sauer principals behind "G&S Boats" became the go to builders producing high end specialized sports-fishers for those wanting to chase billfish on both light and heavy tackle.

Their design approach & building techniques pushed the envelope in styling and aggressive stern treatments featuring wedge sections under the waterline, rounded transoms & weight management to end up with boats that were known for their extreme backing down & manoeuvrability in reverse, so critical when chasing a hot billfish. Names such as Hooker, French Look 111, Miss Babbie & Hookin Bull to name just a few G&S boats with legendary status in game fishing circles.

Other outstanding features include a Separate isolated pump room so systems continue to work in the tropics, a large Brine tank for Snap Freezing baits & chilling drinks when restocking. The cockpit has been described as one of the most workable going around.

Major refit in 2014 to the value of $1.5 Million USD -included : Cummins QSM 11 Motors, Twin Disc Gearboxes, Northern Lights 20 KW Generator, Eskimo Ice maker, 3 X Air conditioning units, New covering boards plus 2 additional long range Fuel Tanks.

In 2018 under her current owner a further $1.8 Million AUD has been spent on bringing her up to the immaculate standard she now presents;
- New interior joinery fit out to "AS NEW" Standard by the finest craftsmen
- Both interior & exterior paintwork
- Modifications and improvements to the tower
- Full electrical rewire to both 240 Volt & 12 Volt systems including new inverters, batteries
- Complete Garmin Electronics (to the value of $150,000)
- New 240V Galley appliances
- Teak cockpit
- New custom fibreglass freezer units moulded under seating in flybridge & cockpit ($300,000)
- Custom Reelax "S" shaped pedestal & Heavy tackle Game Chair. (new value $70,000)
- Clutch driven emergency bilge pump
- Bow Thruster installed in 2020
- New Clears in Mid 2021
- Motors & Gensets serviced in Mid 2021.

With a displacement of just 25,000 kgs due to her composite GRP construction & efficient hull shape, she is very economical to run on both extended week long fishing trips at a 10 knot Cruise or a day`s run to the shelf and back.

Her Sea Recovery water maker & Large capacity Eskimo Icemaker, coupled with dive tank compressor make for comfortable living whist away in great locations.

The Master Cabin has all the high end features you would expect on a yacht of this standard.

Samsung TV, Hanging cupboards, electric massage with remote controls on each side of the queen size mattress. The Ensuite includes a Spa Bath along with all the normal inclusions.
