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

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.
