Since 1998, Yellowfin has been crafting superior family fishing vessels. But this is no minivan. The sexy, sleek designs allow for increased speed when needed and a clean dry ride in chop.
The legends are true. With only 12 ever produced the 43′ Merritt is an endangered species. But even with only dozen built, Its design is so recognizable, if you closed your eyes and we asked you to picture a marlin fishing vessel, your subconscious would probably put together a mirror image of this tournament slayer.
Another classic, from back in the day, the 31′ Bertram made its debut in 1961 and changed the game. The huge cockpit allows for longer, more comfortable trips. If you can find one, you won’t be disappointed.
