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.

The manufacturer is a Miami company that now specialized in high performance speed boats. To be a high performance boat it has to have good "bones" What this means is the superstructure of the hull is engineered extremely well and the boat is solidly built. This Defender 37 has good bones. A survey was completed in September 2015 that reinforces this.
When I viewed this boat I was impressed with its openness and the capabilities of the engine. This lends itself to many possibilities for many different commercial usage.
