1995 Defender 37
It's a beautiful day to be alive, making a living - not behind a desk or a keyboard but enjoying the sunshine and the sea. Being the one in charge of your life.
To make this happen what do you need? A purpose and a boat.
The purpose; possibilities abound: a crabber, a fisherman, a fishing charter captain, a tour boat guide, a ferry operator or providing and intimate catered sunset cruise.
The boat - This Defender 37.
This vessel is currently set up for crabbing; which it is ideally suited, with a clean unencumbered deck. Sideboards high enough to provide safety from rough seas but not too high to make raising the traps formidable and a reinforced railed fiberglass top perfect for storing traps and gear.
If being a professional fisherman is more your style; this boat can take you where you need to be. The engine is a 420 hp single Cummins C series turbo charged engine that has a top speed of 23kts and cruises at 14kts. A 2,000 lbs fish box is located behind the helm and below the deck which can easily be converted to a freezer.
Amenities can be affordably added to make this boat a comfortable and enjoyable ride for taking a group out for a day of fishing; or a tour that shows off the dolphins, sea turtles and waterways.
The strength of this engine, the study construction of this boat and it's easy of handling presents another opportunity as a moneymaker; by towing and ferrying goods and materials or with some upgrades and tender loving care this vessel will provide a fantastic platform for launching a intimate dining experience service.
