2009 Merritt 72 Sportfish
Among the originators of the Florida-Style Convertible Sportfish, Merritt's Boat and Engine Works of Pompano Beach, got its start in mid 1950s when big game fishing gained popularity as a sport. Wooden boats gave way to cold-molded construction and then to advanced composites for the greater performance and efficiencies realized, in addition to production advantages. Family-owned Merritt continues to operate as one of the world's most respected custom sportfish yacht boat builders.
"SIR REEL's" exquisitely handcrafted softly glowing joinery, rich leather upholstery, and onyx and granite countertops create an ambience of elegant tradition-comfortable, functional, with understated luxury. The high-end entertainment system and galley appliances are all out of sight under counters or hidden in cabinets and drawers for an uncluttered, open expansive salon area. Large side windows that taper and curve aft, are reminiscent of the 1966 Porsche 911 that inspired the distinctive Merritt design.
She is as turn-key as they come.
