Playa Herradura, Los Suenos, Costa Rica
2008 48' American Marine yacht "WHISKEY BLUES" was built and set up by hardcore fishermen. This boat is ready to go anywhere in the world and do so with little headaches. Everything about her is done with catching fish as the focus.
She lacks nothing and is ready to fish immediately! Perfect size for game fishing anywhere with all the tools and basics covered for success.
To port is a large bench seat that doubles as a bunk and lifts up to hold a host of 80’s and 50’s while under that is a pull out drawer that holds a full complement of 30’s and 20’s. To starboard is the large dinette that drops down into a bunk with storage under each seat as well as a slide-out drawer with heaps of storage for tackle organizer boxes.
WHISKEY BLUES has a teak and holly floor with engine room access along the centerline. Her modular port bench and starboard dinette are completely removable and have large hatches over the engines to fully access the Engine Room.
Large countertops separate the Salon from the Galley. To starboard are the sink and under-counter refrigerator drawers, and storage. There is additional storage over the counter. To port are under-counter storage, over-counter storage forward with microwave, and shelving. Everything is clean and uncluttered in the Salon and Galley.
WHISKEY BLUES has a lockable pull-up door and slide out lid to close off the below-deck living quarters. The Salon features a Bose surround sound system with DirecTV receiver.
The port tackle center has a
convenient live well and rigging tray under lift-up lids, as well as storage
under, including five drawers and an expansive open storage behind the doors.
The starboard tackle center has the cockpit controls with a large drink box under lift-up lids. Under the
drink box are two vertical pull-out freezer drawers with removable bins for easy
storage and another open storage bin.
There are large storage bins with doors under the port and starboard gunnels. A nearly full-beam fish box is under-deck, forward of the lazarette under her rocket launcher or fighting chair. She has salt and freshwater washdowns, a bridge access ladder to port, and under-step storage at the entrance to the Salon.
The cockpit is wired for 2 L/P dredge reels.
She features a large bridge with Murray Helm chair and companion chair aft of her well-appointed console with pop up panels that host her complete array of electronics.
The teak helm pod is along the centerline and offers excellent visibility all around, especially of her expansive cockpit and stern corners while fighting fish. She has a long bench seat along the port side and another bench seat along the front of the console.
Full Bausch tower with hardtop and tower controls. The tower is also equipped with VHF radio.
WHISKEY BLUES sleeps four in two staterooms. The Salon bench seat and Dinette seat can convert to sleep two additional guests. The Crew Stateroom has over / under bunks to starboard with a hanging locker.
The large head has a vanity and sink, over-counter storage, and a large shower to port. There is a wet locker in the outboard wall of the shower.
The Master Stateroom is fully forward and the queen island berth has massive storage underneath. There are storage lockers above the berth on each side, a hanging locker, and drawers in each corner.
WHISKEY BLUES was built by very skilled and knowledgeable boatmen that filled her with practical ideas and well-built features for serious fishing. Her owner and captain have kept her in Bristol condition and she is ready for any fishing task. She would be a great candidate to ship to Cape Verde, Madeira, Kona, or anywhere on the Atlantic or Pacific coasts. With her classic sheer, raked stem, gentle tumble-home and all-around good looks, WHISKEY BLUES has the features and feel of the finest custom built boats, and without question, she is one.
