Created from an original design of Billy Knowles, the Stolper 380 Tournament Express is a proven fishing machine. Built by Dynatech Marine in Stuart, FL, these boats feature many of Peter Stolper’s innovative systems. Not the least of which are the Seatorque shaft logs which are THE systems of choice of many of the world’s finest yacht and commercial builders ( These oil-filled fully-enclosed shaft logs provide quiet vibration-free running - one of the reasons these boats are renowned for their fish-raising ability. “Reel Deal” has been refit with the newly designed Seatorque systems.

Newly re-listed at a substantially reduced asking price, “Reel Deal” is very seriously for sale by the owner who wishes to down-size to a mid-sized center console boat.
