General Details

Will Trade Up or Down For Larger CC, Yellowfin, Sea Vee, etc.

On The Rocks is a prime example of the elegance and functionality serious anglers’ demand.  She embodies the structural stability and design characteristics of a production boat and still achieves similar performance numbers and aesthetic values found in customs boats.  This 35ft express is small enough for a single owner to operate and yet is still a large enough platform for a tournament crew to work the pit. The low center of gravity coupled with an aggressive hull entry provide a smooth ride in the roughest of conditions. On The Rocks is rigged and ready for South Florida Tournament fishing. Three separate live wells with plenty of water circulation keep your baits alive longer.  A gorgeous teak Rocket Launcher is centered in the pit with holders for 8 rods.  The total number of rod holders on the boat is 20.

This boat went through a complete refit throughout 2012 sparing no expense.

Vessel Walkthrough
This is a must see to appreciate vessel.  A beautifully crafted teak cockpit with custom rocket launcher and over 200 gallons of live bait storage all within a few steps.  There are rod holders extending up the tower legs, across the transom, and perfectly stacked on the rocket launcher.  Under the gunnels, you will find 12/24v volt outlets for electric reels, 6 ft. swing down hatches for storage, LED lights, and a tuna door.  Between the cockpit and the helm, you will find an insulated bait and freezer box to the starboard and a refrigerated rigging station to the port. There is also tackle storage under both side stations. Probably the best feature of any express model is the accessibility of the cockpit from the helm. Centered perfectly on the boat, there is excellent panoramic visibility for the captain while running and fishing. The captain can stand watch at the helm and in one step, turn around and grab the rod that’s line just came crashing down off the Rupp rigger.  On either side of the helm, you will find brand new treated leather upholstered seating with built in cup holders.  The leather material repels all stains, water, and mildew common to destroying outside upholstery.  Walk down the companionway and find a head and shower (single stall) directly to the port side.  Moving forward is a galley with refrigerator, microwave, and burner. Plenty of storage can be found for typical kitchen appliances.  Moving forward is a 3 sided V-Berth for sleeping quarters.  18,000 BTU of AC will keep you resting comfortably at night in the heat of summer.  Downstairs, you will also find couch seating and the main AC/DC circuit board w/ generator start. Moving back outside, you access to the engine room is a hydraulic hatch with toggle switch located under the gunnel.  There is very easy access to all the main systems requiring routine maintenance.  Make sure to take a look at the picture below of the engine room, there is plenty of room even on the outside of the main engines to move and work.  The generator is located centerline just under the stairs leading down to the engine compartment. What personally caught my eye when entering the engine room is the custom designed air intake/filtration boxes (similar to Delta T system) they virtually eliminate any salt water from entering the engine room.  There is still plenty of air circulation and the motors are not starved for air, according to the mechanic.  This feature, along with meticulous care by a loving owner is responsible for a VERY CLEAN engine rooms.  Upon my numerous inspections, never was oil found on the diapers located on the engine beds.

Brokers Comments
Give yourself peace of mind when out on the water.  On The Rocks is perfect in every sense of the word; every possible mechanical, electrical, and cosmetic component has been upgraded in 2012 and 2014.  She is a truly turnkey vessel ready for new ownership.  THIS IS NOT A PROJECT BOAT.  If you are looking to purchase a boat and head out on the water, make it a point to see for yourself “On The Rocks”   She’s a real head turner
