Default Does This Boat Qualify as a 'Sexy Sportfish'?

Not sure I'd want the maintenance but what a piece of art.

Zero . Zero rod holders. Sportfish. Ha.

I like the dark blue hull, but I do not like the wood house sides.

There are certainly better looking boats. Many that are actually "Sportfish"

LOL. Rip out that bench replace it with a fighting chair and drill some holes for the rod holders. Then maybe?

The boat looks great.

The top is uglier than a mud fence.

I do like the twin tuna doors. Very handy on multiple hookups. All she really needs is a nice set of riggers, a steady hand with a hole saw on the gunwales, and maybe swap out that stupid mast with a greenstick.

First thing I think of when I see that boat is high maintenance, In that regard it reminds me of a hot sexy female.

Beautiful craftsmanship, but too much wood finish for me - it would like a lot better without the flybridge, but I guess most owners would want it for practicality.

Remember all those woodies from the late 1930's to the early 1950's ?

My 33 has 2 fighting chairs, outriggers, a downrigger, rod holders and has lots of teak on the gunnels, steps and other places.

Those areas are covered with canvas when the boat is not in use.

The teak on the bow pulpit has been replaced with Plasteak, and the solid teak swim platform is now solid Plasteak.

It was a CAREER to maintain that beautiful wood in Florida.

I still have my day job

Beautiful, yes, but also impractical.

But I did love that folding table...

One could say , yes it's a sexy sportfish because one could argue it depends on what you're fishing for?
