United Yacht Sales continued its trend of custom sportfishing boats listed and sold this year by announcing the introduction of EURYBIA to the brokerage market. Known as one of the finest custom boat builders in the world, Jim Smith Boatworks of Stuart, Florida finished her build in 2018 and now the owners wish to move up in size. EURYBIA is a beautiful example of a Jim Smith 60' Walk-Around Express that broker John Blumenthal describes as the "perfect fishing platform." EURYBIA's current asking price is $3,490,000.
Whether it's targeting sailfish off of Florida's east coast or trolling for Striped Marlin in Magdalena Bay, Mexico, EURYBIA has the aggressive lines that turn heads in any offshore tournament. Please take a moment to watch the video walk-through of EURYBIA below that was filmed where the boat is located, North Palm Beach. If you have interest in seeing the boat in person or virtually, please contact John Blumenthal at 1-772-215-2571 or by email at John@UnitedYacht.com.
As with any custom-built sportfish, the ride and stability of the vessel is expected to offer the highest level of performance and Jim Smith Boats does not disappoint. EURYBIA has a cold-molded strong and light-weight hull allowing for great speed and efficiency. The Seakeeper 9 provides the stability while trolling or bottom-fishing that will keep all anglers on board comfortable. And while she functions incredibly well as a true bluewater tournament sportfish, EURYBIA looks incredible too. The awlgrip/awlcraft Haze Grey paint looks stunning in combination with the teak decks, covering boards, and hand-rubbed satin teak finish.
Looking down from the tower, the size and space of the fighting cockpit is impressive, giving angler and crew ample room to move around during a tense battle. Big live-wells are found both in the deck and under the transom covering board with the insides painted blue (which the bait love!). Other fishing features in the cockpit include an in-deck fishbox with Eskimo ice dump, a transom door for pulling in big fish, and a Bluewater Marlin Chair any angler will love to be in. Let's not forget either the lift-up lid that reveals a joystick control station for the captain. Guests on board will enjoy watching the action from the comfortable mezzanine seating, that also house storage and refrigeration.

Controls and fishing features are in abundance on the custom Palm Beach Tower which includes 17 steps. Enjoy incredible 360-degree views while having total control over the vessel. Both the tower helm and the fiberglass buggy top are blacked out for a sleek look. The tower is equipped with a MTU joystick, shift controls, and start/stop controls. There is a Garmin GPS 7612 display and a beautiful stainless-steel Ongaro helm wheel. All of the outriggers on board are Rupp and the electronics are protected through weather-proof hinged lids.

As you enter the bridge deck, there is amble seating on port and starboard benches, as well as a teak dining table. The EZ2CY Enclosure provides climate-controlled protection from the elements while also keeping excellent visibility. A Raritan ice machine is integrated in the bridge deck for convenience and there is multiple storage spaces under the bench seats.
The helm station is centerline in the bridge deck, complete with 2 Bluewater Helm Chairs, a teak helm pod, joystick controls, Palm Beach lever controls with bow thruster buttons, and another S/S Ongaro steering wheel. The captain will also find overhead MTU controls, US-9 teaser reels, and overhead LED lightning in red, white, and blue.

Moving through the interior of EURYBIA, the galley and dinette is found immediately walking down the 5-step entrance from the bridge deck. Whether recreationally fishing on a week or charging hard through a multi-day tournament, this Jim Smith 60 Express offers comfortable accommodations throughout. The dinette area seats 5 guests and the dining table has a beautiful teak top with Holly border inlay. The galley is fully-equipped with custom fridge/freezer, Corian countertops, 2-burner induction hot plate, microwave, and ample storage. A 32" TV with Sound Bar is present along with a Direct TV unit.

Moving forward of the galley are the accommodations onboard EURYBIA. There are 2 staterooms and 2 private heads, both of which offer gorgeous teak cabinetry. The master suite is placed forward in the bow and has a queen-sized island berth. A large porthole is placed overhead offering natural light during the day as well as ventilation. The en suite master bathroom features a large shower with seat, teak cabinetry, Corian counter top, AC outlets, and plenty of storage. The crew or guest stateroom is placed portside and has over/under bunks.

EURYBIA is powered with twin MTU M96L 1600HP engines for incredible speed and performance. There are currently about 500 hours on the engines which have been very well-maintained. The 1,450 gallon fuel capacity, combined with the lighter weight of the vessel, allows for a long run while fishing. Other mechanical equipment on board includes:
- 21.5kW Onan Generator
- Dometic Spot Zero Water Purification System
- Dometic SeaXchange Water Maker that does 800 GPD
- Racor Filtration DFBO-10-MA
