Billfish 39

Within the sport fishing community walk-arounds offer the ultimate fishability, performance and comfort. Blending a traditional offshore battlewagon with a high-performance center console, walk-arounds are extremely versatile and well-suited for a wide variety of fishing applications. Recently introduced, the Billfish 39 isn’t just another production boat, but rather a custom-built powerhouse. The latest innovation by brothers Brandon and Damon Vernese, each Billfish 39 begins with Solid Works 3-D modeling to translate the customer’s ideas into a realistic rendering. Incorporating innovative boat building techniques and materials, the hull features a cutting edge laminate schedule that incorporates VIPEL® epoxy-based vinylester resin, Kevlar and biaxial s-glass, in addition to a vacuum bagged PVC foam core. This unique fabrication results in a lightweight platform built for speed. Equipped with triple Evinrude E-TEC 300s, this sweet ride is capable of reaching a blistering top end of 58 MPH (as equipped in photo). At a cruising speed of 30.4 MPH you can expect 1/mpg fuel burn with a range of 365-miles. Powered with twins, triples or quads, the Billfish 39 will accommodate up to 1,200 HP. Also available in an express or center console layout, the options are truly endless. To ensure the high-quality fit and finish work that astute anglers desire, each Billfish 39 is constructed one at a time with only four or five produced on an annual basis. To experience the difference, take a closer look at the Billfish 39 at the upcoming 2010 Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show. Billfish Boats, 772.332.6567,
