This large sturdy houseboat is an open canvas to layout in any way you choose to use her. The twin Caterpillar engines were fully rebuilt and have less than 20 hours of running time on them. She runs an impressive 16kts cruise with a top end speed of 19kts. There is a giant salon with the ability to furnish in any way you choose. The upper helm is well laid out and has large Bimini Top for protection from the elements. There is ample room to store a tender and multiple water toys on the sundeck using the crane. This vessel would make the ultimate office, mothership or floating residence. Call today for a viewing.

Matt Key is a Florida native that grew up fishing and boating the waters of the Treasure Coast and the Palm Beaches.

Matt’s first job was in the marine industry as an employee at Monterey Custom Yachts which is now known as American Custom Yachts. Matt learned several valuable skills working with the master craftsmen while at Monterey Yachts that he still falls back on today. Matt has held several positions throughout his career including rigger, transporter, dock master, and product representative.

When it comes to fishing very few have the love, passion, and experience that Matt has. Matt co-captained the No Delay Fishing Team on the Southern Kingfish Association (SKA) circuit for 6 years and fished several other local tournaments in the Southeast US. With several wins and top finishes in multiple tournaments, he has been able to establish a large number of friends and contacts in fishing circles. Matt has tallied over 250 sailfish releases and is always happy to take time to sit down and trade stories or give out a few fishing tips with anyone that asks. Matt and his team were sponsored by many top brands in the yachting industry including: Pursuit Boats, Donzi Marine, Contender Boats, Invincible Boats, Yamaha Outboards, Mercury Marine, Suzuki Outboards, Raymarine Electronics, Salty Marine, Treasure Coast Boating Center, and Costa Del Mar Sunglasses.

If you are looking for a new boat to fight fish with or looking to move your present one you won’t find a more qualified broker than Matt. He is a knowledgeable, friendly, honest, hardworking individual with the client base and the connections to get the job done.
