    Model: 40 Custom Express

    Type: Sportfish Custom

    Engine Details: Inboard -


    Fine Line is a custom 40’ Billy Knowles cold-molded express sportfish. Considered by many to be one of the finest mid-sized express boats ever made, she was the inspiration for the 44 Garlington.  She has just completed an extensive 3 year open-checkbook refit by a team of the finest craftsman including new engines, gears, genset, electronic controls, hydraulics, tower, enclosure, electronics, refrigeration, teak, paint and bottom fairing.  Benefitting from meticulous maintenance and a complete service history, she shows as new with low hours. Fine Line delivers that elusive combination of economy, speed, acceleration, and maneuverability.

    This Knowles 40 Custom Express is equally at home fishing the Bahamas, Sailfish Alley, or prowling the Canyons.  Her soft, dry ride and seaworthy manners will impress the most discerning buyer.  If you desire the one of the very best examples of a classic South Florida custom sportfishing yacht, look no further.
