END OF SUMMER ($250,000) PRICE REDUCTION 

The owner of the “Ay Caramba” spared no expense when creating this one-of-a-kind custom sportfishng yacht. Once aboard, it becomes obvious that attention to detail was a top priority throughout the design,  construction, and outfitting of this vessel.  Her carefully engineered engineroom does not suffer from a lack of form, function or equipment. 

Exterior appointments, fishing amenities, and live aboard comforts will exceed guest expectations.

The accommodation plan features a full salon with dinette, 4 stateroom layout with a spacious master stateroom with ensuite head, two stacked bunk staterooms, (one with en ensuite head and engineroom access), and a forward VIP stateroom with ensuite head.  The forward VIP stateroom could easily serve as a second master stateroom.  

The cockpit and mezzanine were designed with the right dimensions, with competitive tournament fishing in mind, traveling, long hours of fishing in hot climates and to have equivalent  feel & maneuverability of a 50' high performance custom sportfish.  A full mezzanine seating with teak bulkhead,  air-conditioned mezzanine seating across  to port and single seating to starboard side delivering the ultimate in angler comfort. 

BUILDER’S NOTE:

Over the past five years, F & S has built several custom sportfishing yachts in the 66’-72’ class. 

F & S Owner and Founder, Jimmy Floyd, has incorporated the very best performance and accommodation features of these vessels into the design of the “Ay Caramba”.   

All things being equal in power, size, load and sea conditions, no other boat can match F & S. Their secret is a Variable Deadrise Hull design with longitudinal steps.  The F & S longitudinal steps are of release rather than pressure design, creating a soft ride. As the hull cuts through waves, there is aeration along the steps. Air is softer than water and in rough going, pockets of air are trapped between the hull and the water's surface by the steps. This contributes to her soft ride and superior performance. F & S is stable at all speeds on any quarter. The multi-keel effect of the vertical surfaces of the steps give unsurpassed directional stability, even while running in large following seas. An F&S hull will run with less wetted surface, less friction and more efficient hydrodynamic lift. The result is a softer ride with breathtaking and efficient performance.

At top speeds, the second step-up panels are the primary lateral stabilizers with a small portion of the chine panels adding secondary support near the transom. When you are really running, her chines may actually be above the water surface! Yet at rest or at slow-troll, the submerged chines and relatively flat outermost panels give great roll resistance, as well as maximum lift for quick planing performance.

Because of the deeply molded-in longitudinal steps, F&S hulls are inherently "stiffer" structurally. Stiff hulls do not fatigue the hull or passengers with the "oil-canning" ride of hulls that flex.

Power is delivered by a pair of Caterpillar C32A at 1925 HP, delivering a 36 knot cruise speed and a 42 knot top end speed. (with only 930hrs & warranties until 2016 or 4000hrs) 

The "Ay Caramba" is not for sale to US Citizens while in US Waters.
