47' Buddy Davis 1986 My Island Lady


NEW LOWER PRICE! FISH A LEGEND. Buddy Davis arguably made one of the best sport fishing boats ever built.  The 47 Convertible one of the company's most popular models and you won't find a better head sea ride. Stylish lines, an abrupt broken shear and the unmistakable classic Carolina flare will certainly get the attention of onlookers. This 1986 Buddy Davis is in great condition, she was repowered in 2006 with Catepillar C15 engines that are barely broken in at 560 hours. At 850 horsepower each, these engines will give you all the speed you will need. "My Island Lady" is in great shape, sleeps 5 comfortably and has two heads. The owner also had a new Cat generator installed and has replaced both air conditioning units. Her owner has regularly maintained the mechanicals as well as the cosmetics. The galley bar area has been removed, opening up the salon area and the electrical panel moved to the port side. If you're looking for a serious offshore fishing machine or just to sit back and cruise in style, this is the one!
