The "SOUL TROLLIN" started its life as the world famous "PRETTY PATTY". Home base was Palm Beach at that time. The legendary Jackie Morrow ran her as she traveled the world chasing Blue Marlins and Giant Bluefin tuna. She then ended up in the Florida Keys as the "SACHEM" and owned by Charlie Owens his last of five Merritt’s. She spent 25 years at Bud and Mary’s and traveling the Caribbean catching Charlie many world records. In October 2014 it was purchased and delivered to Merritt’s boatyard. The three year restoration began at Merritt’s Boat yard. Now with all its mechanical and cosmetic upgrades she is a true pedigree. A perfect fit for someone looking to travel the Caribbean or other ports abroad. With the new ReCon Cummins QSM’11’s (675 HP) she has the power to keep up with all the latest sportfishing boats and still be super fuel efficient.

She sleeps 4 people in two (2) separate staterooms very comfortably. Forward stateroom has lower and upper bunk stations with storage below. On starboard side is master with upper and lower bunks. Master has its own head, shower and closet plus plenty of drawer storage below bunks.
