56' Custom 2006 BACKLASH


75k Price Adjustment = Opportunity

This 2006 56 Custom Sportfisherman by Purdue Custom Yachts features a Carolina design and beautifully finished interior layout. Her three layer cold molded bottom construction provides a soft ride and has remarkably stable fishing qualities that we all prefer in the trough. Her interior, beamy cockpit and large comfortable bridge give her the feel of a much larger boat. The "Backlash" features a double stateroom layout with 2 heads and BONUS companionway berths midship. She's a proven fishing platform with a record of success. Powered by a pair of Detroit 60 Series engines the Backlash has respectable performance numbers.

  • New engine air charge units
  • New Exhaust Manifolds with one spare
  • New Cruise Aire A/C units
  • New 3/4 bridge enclosure
  • New engine mounts
  • C Grip Marine Soft Deck system in cockpit and at helm
