General Details


The "EYE CATCHER" is one of the most well maintained and updated sport fishing boats on the market.  "EYE CATCHER" received NEW common rail 1360 MAN engines in 2008.  This gives the "EYE CATCHER" an economical cruise speed 33 knots @ 1925 burning only 85 GPH (Per Captains Log). Also in 2008 all Electronics were replaced including in the tower and soon after she was wired with a Bose Life Style Stereo system through out. 

The "EYE CATCHER" was originally the "WEASEL".  The present owner only perfected and improved on an already open checkbook vessel.  Literally no expense spared on updates and meticulously maintained by the best detailer in the area.  The boat shines from the paint to the brightwork.  The teak deck and covering boards replaced in 2011 along with bridge enclosures, KVH SAT/TV, Flat screens through out, Eskimo ice maker, and a Custom rod closet that will blow your mind!  In 2012 the "EYE CATCHER" had all lighting replaced with LED fixtures with dimmers, soft goods for all staterooms, cockpit freezer and salon refrigeration. The list goes on.

If you are in the market for one of the BEST Custom Convertible look no further.  

The "EYE CATCHER"  is ready to go and ready to show at any time.  

The term "Turn Key" is loosely used in this industry but this one is a "Turn Key" situation.

The galley is forward with granite countertops, two bay sinks, flush mounted 4-burner kitchen aid cooktop, Kitchen aid microwave/convection oven, and lots of storage cabinets and drawers.  There are side-by-side under-counter stainless steel custom refrigerator and freezer.  Across and to starboard is an additional top loading freezer, and 2 bar stools at the granite counter. Above the freezer is a built-in entertainment center which houses a Bose stereo equipment, CD, DVD player, satellite TV receiver... Going below to port is the VIP guest stateroom with (2) side-by-side berths which can slide together and become a queen berth.  There is a hanging locker, storage drawers and a Sony 20" color TV.  The VIP head has custom nautical chart wallpaper by Michael Hoffman.  There is a full-sized stall shower and electric Head Hunter fresh water head.  Across to starboard is the second guest stateroom and/or crews quarters with over/under berths and custom storage under the top bunk with a hanging locker. The head is considered the day head with stall shower and features an incredible full color living reef scene wallpaper collage by Michael Hoffman. The custom rod locker is in the companionway just forward of this stateroom.
