More Details

To port is a large bench\nseat that doubles as a bunk and lifts up to hold a host of 80’s and 50’s while\nunder that is a pull out drawer that holds a full complement of 30’s and 20’s.\nTo starboard is the large dinette that drops down into a bunk with storage\nunder each seat as well as a slide-out drawer with heaps of storage for tackle\norganizer boxes.

WHISKEY BLUES has a teak and holly floor with engine\nroom access along the centerline. Her modular port bench and starboard dinette\nare completely removable and have large hatches over the engines to fully\naccess the Engine Room. 

Large countertops\nseparate the Salon from the Galley. To starboard are the sink and under-counter\nrefrigerator drawers, and storage. There is additional storage over the\ncounter. To port are under-counter storage, over-counter storage forward with\nmicrowave, and shelving. Everything is clean and uncluttered in the Salon and\nGalley.

The port tackle center has a\nconvenient live well and rigging tray under lift-up lids, as well as storage\nunder, including five drawers and an expansive open storage behind the doors.\nThe starboard tackle center has the cockpit controls with a large drink box under lift-up lids. Under the\ndrink box are two vertical pull-out freezer drawers with removable bins for easy\nstorage and another open storage bin. 

There are large storage bins with\ndoors under the port and starboard gunnels. A nearly full-beam fish box\nis under-deck, forward of the lazarette under her rocket launcher or fighting\nchair. 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\nwith Murray Helm chair and companion chair aft of her well-appointed console\nwith pop up panels that host her complete array of electronics.

The teak helm pod is along the\ncenterline and offers excellent visibility all around, especially of her\nexpansive cockpit and stern corners while fighting fish. She has a long bench\nseat along the port side and another bench seat along the front of the console.

Full Bausch tower with hardtop and\ntower controls.  The tower is also equipped with VHF radio.

WHISKEY\nBLUES sleeps four in two staterooms.\nThe Salon bench seat and Dinette seat can convert to sleep two additional\nguests. The Crew Stateroom has over / under bunks to starboard with a hanging\nlocker.

The\nlarge head has a vanity and sink, over-counter storage, and a large shower\nto port. There is a wet locker in the outboard wall of the shower.

The\nMaster Stateroom is fully forward and the queen island berth has massive\nstorage underneath. There are storage lockers above the berth on each side, a\nhanging locker, and drawers in each corner. 


WHISKEY\nBLUES was built by very skilled and\nknowledgeable boatmen that filled her with practical ideas and well-built\nfeatures for serious fishing. Her owner and captain have kept her in Bristol\ncondition and she is ready for any fishing task. She would be a great candidate\nto ship to Cape Verde, Madeira, Kona, or anywhere on the Atlantic or Pacific\ncoasts. With her classic sheer, raked stem, gentle tumble-home and all-around\ngood looks, WHISKEY BLUES has the features and feel of the finest custom\nbuilt boats, and without question, she is one.
