Featuring naval architecture by Don O’Keefe and design by Burger, Dream Catcher is a 108’ (32.92m) aluminum sportfish yacht that sleeps 6 guests in 3 ensuite staterooms, plus up to 5 crew in 3 cabins.
Built to ABS standards, her sleek interior was substantially updated in 2014 and boasts satin-finished teak, wraparound windows, a wet bar, and an entertainment center in the spacious main salon. Forward of the salon is a dining area with seating for six guests. In 2019 her current owner completed further updates and upgrades, which are listed below.
Dream Catcher’s teak cockpit is fully rigged for fishing with a centerline fighting chair, a rod storage locker, transom box plumbed as a livewell, in-deck fish box, freezers, and a transom door with a swim ladder.
Dream Catcher has a shallow draft of less than 6’ (2m), allowing her to easily cruise the waters of the Bahamas. Twin MTU engines with 2,735hp each give her a cruising speed of 24 knots and max speed of 28 knots, and with a fuel capacity of over 8,000 gallons, she is ideal for long-distance exploration.
Dream Catcher is part of a small fraternity of high-quality American-built motoryacht-style sportfishers, and this one can really move when needed! She has been maintained in excellent condition and is ready to go anywhere in the world. Her owner would consider a smaller yacht or sportfisher as a partial trade.

Upon entering Dream Catcher’s main salon you are immediately struck by the abundance of satin-finished teak joinery work and the exquisite craftsmanship, which is found throughout the vessel. Her main salon, dining area, and galley are all located on the same level surrounded by 360 degree windows, which give Dream Catcher a bright and open feeling throughout.
Below deck are the full-beam master stateroom with ensuite bath, and forward of the master are two identical ensuite guest staterooms with side-by-side single berths. Moving forward there are two more identical ensuite accommodations, each with upper and lower berths, for either guest or crew.
Accessing the enclosed pilothouse from the salon staircase opens up to the main helm, skylounge, crews area with couches that convert to bunks and a complete head and shower. Just aft of the enclosed pilothouse is the upper deck mezzanine with seating.
The salon was refit and given a new configuration by Michael Rybovich and Sons in 2014. New additions included a forward dining area, additional storage, and updated entertainment area. Additionally, all of the soft goods, the headliner, and the lighting were replaced. Entering the main salon there are double entry doors leading to a wet bar to starboard and entertainment area to port. Moving forward there are two couches that open for large storage areas and two occasional chairs.
The dining area is centerline forward in the salon. It comfortably seats 6 guests at a beveled glass table. The aft side of the galley island contains abundant storage for crystal and flatware. The entire salon area is very open and bright with large windows. For privacy, there are roman shades throughout, including one to separate the galley and salon if desired. There are port and starboard deck access doors, including a beautiful teak bridge staircase which provides access to both the pilothouse and the exterior deck.
The galley is located just forward of the main salon and dining area and offers all of the modern conveniences that any chef could expect. It is very modern, with all appliances being either built-in or concealed behind teak covers. The granite countertop was upgraded in 2014 and flows throughout the entire galley.
The galley is open and bright with large side and forward windows. There is an abundance of shelf and pull-out storage throughout, including two in-counter dumbwaiters flanking either side of the galley sink to maximize storage. The galley’s sole is high gloss teak and holly.
The full-beam Master Stateroom and ensuite head were completely refit in 2014. This includes all soft goods, the headliner, and the overhead lighting. The master bath was completely reconfigured as a his and hers, separated by a large marble shower with glass doors and beveled mirrors.
The Master Stateroom is amidships and features a king-size berth. The port lights and light colors provide an open and spacious feeling. There is an entertainment center as well as a large walk-in cedar lined closet, plenty of storage, and a built-in safe.
Port/Starboard Guest Staterooms
Just forward of the master are two identical guest staterooms with twin berths separated by a vanity/desk area with stool. Both staterooms are open and bright and feature large cedar lined hanging lockers, entertainment areas, and ensuite heads.
Moving forward are two additional identical guest staterooms, each configured with upper/lower berths. Each offers sufficient storage, cedar-lined lockers, entertainment centers, and ensuite heads. Plenty of natural light makes the staterooms feel open and bright.
The enclosed pilothouse has access from a teak internal staircase from the main salon as well as access via a ladder from the mezzanine deck. The helm is centerline providing a 360-degree panoramic view. There is a nav station to port and plenty of storage throughout. Just aft of the helm area are two couches that can be used as crew berths, and a separate head with ashower in the skylounge area. There is a teak cocktail table that is expandable and a Uline refrigerator. All countertops have been recently been upgraded.
Moving out of the pilothouse to the aft deck there is a large seating area with port and starboard wing stations, ladder access to the lower mezzanine deck, a large double door freezer, and flybridge access ladder.
The flybridge sits directly over the enclosed pilothouse and features outstanding visibility to all areas. The helm station features redundancy from the lower helm with all appropriate controls and navigation needed to operate the vessel. The incorporated mast is also hinged to reduce the overall clearance needed for passageway or maintenance. Just forward of the helm area is a large storage locker.
