Built as the Davis Factory Demo in 2002, the Boy’s Toy is a true Bluewater fishing machine. Power is provided by a well-maintained pair of Detroit Diesel Series 60 / 14 Liter engines at 825 HP each.  She is equipped with every available Davis option including a Pipewelders tuna tower w/ hard top, Rupp outriggers, teak decks, teak coaming, teak covering boards, teak transom, command bridge air conditioning, Eskimo E-600 ice maker, a 600 GPD water maker, cockpit freezer, and an under deck fish box. The 45 Davis provides a dry and extremely soft ride that is simply unequaled in its class. The elevated bridge deck allows exceptional visibility at any speed.  She has raised many Blue and White Marlin in the Northeast Canyons. The original owner is moving up to a larger sport fisherman.
