1997 Egg Harbor Sport Fisherman
For many design enthusiasts, the Egg Harbor 52 Sporting, luxurious accommodations and excellent performance. Her tapered, modified-V hull has more bow flare than previous Egg Harbor models, and a sharp entry and low transom deadrise result in a dry and very maneuverable boat, quick to plane and a fast ride in open water. Her standard galley-up floorplan is arranged with the owner’s stateroom amidships (note the full bath in the adjoining head) and a guest stateroom forward, both with double berths. A small third stateroom is to port, partially tucked under the dinette. The lush salon of the Egg Harbor 52, with its high-gloss teak cabinetry and designer fabrics, is quite wide which results in some fairly narrow side decks. The cockpit is one of the largest to be found in a 50-foot convertible. The same is true of the flybridge—it’s massive. Additional features include two big fish boxes, a transom baitwell and transom door. Among several engine choices offered since her introduc-tion, twin CAT 3406E cruise the Egg Harbor 52 in the mid 20s and reach 30+ knots wide open.
