    Had to stop and take a second look when I saw the Buddy Davis emblem on the side of this center console. Clearly, the hull is lifted from the traditional lines of its larger siblings. The bow features a large flair, which should provide a very dry ride and of course... that classic transom! I checked the Buddy Davis website, but there was no info published on it. Add a tower and I bet this mini-BD will prove popular with center console buyers. (price permitting!) ;)

    Sporting a pair of 250 Mercury Verado's, it's reasonable to assume this is the fastest Buddy Davis ever built. If you're looking for classic sportfish-style, center-console... here's your boat! :)

    Normally I'm not a fan of Fighting Lady Yellow, but it sure does work on that hull!

    That's a slick looking boat. I like the yellow also. Thanks for posting the pic.

    Saw that in Port A, last time we were fishing down there in June/July. First couple times we drove by it I we all stared, but I wasn't to keen on the yellow. It took a grand total of 3 looks for it to grow on me, "that thing IS bad@ss!"

    Buddy Davis 28 and 34

    The picture you are looking at is the offices of Gulf Coast Yacht sales in West Palm. We are the exclusive dealers for B&D center consoles in Florida. I can tell you from riding in Center Console all my life that these two are exceptional. But don't take my word for it. Call me to take a test drive, we keep a 28 and 34 in both Tampa and the Palm Beaches.

    I am slowly becoming a fan of center-console boats that mirror the hull design of the companies larger models. When I was at my marine last, there was a 30' Jarrett Bay center console and it had the classic "Jarrett Bay" hull and it looked fabulous.
