For over 20 years, F&S Yachts has created some of the most beautiful and cutting-edge sports fishing yachts on the market. Lovingly crafted by internationally recognized hull designer Jim Floyd and his team, F&S Yachts are built for speed and endurance, with cold-molded hulls and the latest technology that slice through the waves like a knife through butter. Each boat is custom-built to your individual specifications, from the exterior finishes to the silverware, making F&S Yachts the superior choice for serious fisherman. Based in Jim’s native Delaware, the F&S shipyard has produced over 30 stunning, eminently fishable yachts since 1997. Shunning the assembly line, F&S’s ethos of handcraftsmanship ensures that each F&S yacht is unique and tailor-made. At F&S Yachts, artisan-quality workmanship and cutting-edge technology are the order of the day.
By the time F&S got its start in 1997, Delaware native and founder Jim Floyd already had several decades of experience as a master carpenter and cabinetmaker under his belt. These skills, combined with his intensive study of custom Carolina boat shops in the 1970s, formed the bedrock of F&S’s obsessive dedication to craftsmanship. After ten years of experimentation, Jim built his first yacht in a humble Delaware chicken barn. The result, the 57-foot Fin-ally – a play on his love of fishing and the many years Jim dedicated to studying the art of boat building – was an unprecedented sport fishing boat that combined the longitudinally stepped, variable deadrise hull of his beloved SeaCraft with a topside characteristic of North Carolina fleets. The Fin-ally provided the model for the specialty-engineered hulls that F&S is world-renowned for, reducing air friction to ensure a sleek, smooth, fast ride.
Not one to rest on their laurels, F&S has continued to refine and develop their craft over the years, devoting their efforts producing the perfect offshore fishing machines. While perfection is a tall order, F&S yachts delivers. A typical F&S yacht is quick, steady and exceptionally rideable, with a rounded but aerodynamic aesthetic that manages to look both timeless and futuristic. Their unique and rightly lauded hulls are phenomenally efficient, minimising horsepower without compromising speed.
A remarkable synthesis of form and function, the F&S 75 is not just a pretty face. This streamlined vessel combines beautiful, rounded lines, a sharply pointed bow, and rich, luxurious finishes with high-tech amenities such as a Seakeeper 9 control panel, Furuno sonar, and a Simrad autopilot controller. 12-cylinder MANs ensure a responsive and easily trimmed ride as the vessel comfortably reaches 32 knots.
The gorgeous salon is finished with wood grain and features windows that curve downward to a sharp point, outfitted with dimmable privacy glass. The overall effect is luxurious but understated, exuding a sense of pampered calm. The horizontal grain woodwork has a relaxed but highly refined Scandinavian feel most evident in the minimal but spacious galley kitchen. The F&S 61 is equipped with a stateroom for crew and day guests, as well as a master stateroom to starboard with plenty of storage and an ensuite bathroom with a full shower. Forward is the VIP room with an ensuite bathroom, a snug but comfortable raised queen bed with storage flanking the hullsides.
One of the standout features of this model is the stunning fighting chair in the immaculate cockpit, made of warm, polished teak. Fixed to a gleaming optical chrome platform, this chair is ready to withstand the rigors of heavy battle with marlin and bluefin tuna.
This handsome vessel looks as good in dock as it does flying through the open water. It epitomizes F&S’s mission to combine luxury with serious functionality – every aspect of this yacht’s construction is for a purpose, its beauty a result of F&S’s pragmatic artistry. The spacious, curvy salon is equipped with storage below an elegant teak table. An expansive mezzanine seating area, spacious tackle storage, a watertight lazarette hatch, and three large-capacity freezers are just a few of the amenities housed in the generous 170-square-foot cockpit, which also features a 55-gallon transom livewell. On the bridge, there are three pedestal seats and 11 rod holders ideal for dynamic, multi-species fishing. With four staterooms, including a master with an en suite bathroom and big screen TV, the F&S 75 is perfect for a group fishing expedition or for fishing enthusiasts who want to bring their family along for the ride. And what a ride it will be: with a 75-foot engine room and twin M94 MTU diesel engines and a 37-knot cruise speed, the F&S 75 can take on the high seas with ferocious grace.
The F&S 72 is a big, powerful beauty. The shipyard’s fastidious craftmanship ensures close tolerances impossible to achieve on a mass-produced scale. The gentle curves characteristic of F&S’s design are out in full force on this model: the wood-finished kitchen – complete with a two-seater breakfast bar – is gently raised from the salon by two sinuous steps that snake starboard. An S-shaped companionway runs from the crew quarters to the forward cabin with a private shower. A king-size, portside master bedroom is outfitted with the same warm wood that furnishes yacht’s interior. Opposite the master is a three-person guest cabin with access to another bathroom complete with shower. The flybridge features a Palm Beach-style helm with access on either side to the forward lounge seating. Fearsome twin MTU 16V2000CR engines ensure this expansive but sporty yacht easily reaches 30 knots.
