Ocean Pearl
51' Buddy Davis 51 Custom Carolina Sportfish 1988

$ 349,900

Ocean Pearl isn't your typical 1988 47 Davis. She was refit by the finest shipbuilder in the Caribbean. Over the course of the refit, she was extended in the transom by 4' and re-powered with MAN 800's aside from other changes to better than the already great 47 Davis. Her large cockpit provides excellent fishability and comfort, with excellent fish storage and accessibility to the lazarette.

She cruises effortlessly at 24kts, while sipping fuel, and features the sought after 2/2 layout with galley down. She is equipped with a watermaker, Northern Lights generator, Kleenoil oil filtration system, cockpit freezer, second station and much more.
