I will try to spot the 3 custom Sprtfishers... I think I am close or not...

turquis blue is a Jarret Bay 53
beige is also a Jarret Bay 55 I think
and the mahogany door with mezzanine is a Weaver 80 Miss Pat

Very nice! I've seen a few of those come though Port Everglades.

I have to do the Brokerage Show one year. Palm Beach Show is coming and they usually mix the sizes well.

The beige Deep Impact with the twins looks nice, not sure how functional it is but looks good to this South Florida boy.

PowerYacht--- I think you got the 80 Weaver correct, but I think the blue one is a 53 Sculley and the yellow one is a 60 B&D....maybe I need corrected too!? But does it really matter, they are all incredible boats!

pheww Sculley, Jarret Bay and B&D are really similar I tell you
but I think you got it right there is a B&D 60 for sale on YW which looks like its the one, and a 53 Sculley at Merrit Mary Rose
that is my problem with Custom builder for me they look similar but these are very very similar
you know if you add F&S it looks similar to them too

B&D is Buddy & Davis are they still in buisness? as to what I know he went with the Plastic Surgeon and formed the Buddy Davis range now
This has a central saloon door with 2 mezzanines on the sides, I dont like much this layout altough its lines are beautiful though from the sides
but I think Jarret Bay looks the best of these or am I wrong....

Buddy Davis built custom boats in Wanchese, NC for a long time starting in the '80's. He originally built "cold molded" boats, but eventually made some molds and started building glass boats (47, 61). A few years ago the plastic surgeon (who also owns Egg Harbor and a few others) bought the Buddy Davis name and began producing glass boats. I think most of the designs were slightly altered but still share most of the characteristics Buddy was known for. Buddy Davis himself then started a new company a few years ago called B&D, and he focused alot on his center console line but also built a few 60's and 68's. I think he is still in business, but no longer produces big boats, just the center consoles. If you stare at enough pics of these custom boats you start to pic out the subtle differences in them all (which I do way too much!!! haha). I have to agree though, Jarrett Bay makes some badazz boats! Check out the new 67 on there website!

you know Oceanbird
I want you to teach me...
window shapes is nearly the same
the line under the shearline is more or less the same in all these
the line by the exhaust is also the same
and engines intake are also the same

you can recognize by the flare at the bow, Sculley has a certain squarish feel to it, and B&D is never ending but to notice this from above pictures is near to the impossible
