About this Buddy Davis 47 Sportfish

Known throughout the world for its legendary ride, the Buddy Davis hull is designed to cut through monster head seas, run on rails in following seas, and lie still while drifting in deep troughs waiting for a strike. What's Davis's secret? The bottom. With her deep, narrow entry, LIMITED EDITION will never pound. She slices. With a substantial keel and solid skeg, she never wanders. LIMITED EDITION is a truly spectacular sport fish built by the legendary builder Buddy Davis.

LIMITED EDITION  had an over $400k refit, in Miami in, from the keel up. This included a new interior, new commercial engines, new Tuna Tower, and flawless Ice Blue Awlgrip hull.

She has been active in many world class fishing tournaments and is a proven fish raiser.  With her Carolina pedigree, immaculate condition, and proven track record, she is ready to go for the next serious tournament contender who wants all of the fishability of a proven fishing machine and the creature comforts of a yacht.  I have personally fished her and have a relatively rare North Atlantic spearfish out there with my TBF tag on her.



The cockpit of any great fishing vessel is where all the action is and that is very true on LIMITED EDITION.  Her teak clad cockpit is easy on the feet and easy on the eyes.  A built in molded tackle center complete with freezer, sink, storage and bait prep area lies along the starboard forward section of the cockpit.  A center line engine room hinged hatch provides easy access to the Engine Room. Facing aft, one finds the ultimate fighting chair, a fully equipped Murray with foot-rest,  set in the center of the cockpit.  There are 2 in-deck storage boxes and a centerline deck hatch provides great access to the steering gear and storage area.  The teak covering boards, transom door, and fresh water shower and salt water wash down complete the cockpit area. Up 1 step, one enters the main salon or take the ladder to the bridge deck and on up the full sized Tuna Tower to the buggy  top.  Full rocket launcher, numerous rod holders on the tower legs , 37' Lee outriggers (new) and a center rigger will make sure that you can get enough lines in the water for everyone on board to take part in the action.

The galley of LIMITED EDITION was completely redesigned  to allow for quick meals on the go or more extensive dining after fishing.  Below counter freezer and fridge (Vitrifrigo) , stainless steel sink located outboard on the port side, Ice maker, 2 burner glass cook top (Jenson), a microwave/convection oven and abundant storage will allow your cook to be creative with your day's catch.  The custom Silestone counter is resistant to stain, acid, scratching damage, and is also antibacterial. It is perfect for a fish boat that catches lots of fish.  There are two custom built teak stools for breakfast  or a quick snack.
