Broker Remarks

FREEBIRD, a 54’ 1991 Sportsman Custom Carolina, underwent a major refit in 2015 by Blackwell and has since received a long list of continuous upgrades. The vessel is known for its legendary sea keeping abilities and has an incredible gentle and dry ride. She will handle and perform in some of the roughest sea conditions with grace. FREEBIRD has a history that is known and respected throughout the Sportfishing community. Built in 1991, this vessel was ahead of its time. She will compete and perform better than some boats built today. For its size, the 54’ Sportsman offers a very spacious accommodating three stateroom, two head layout. Her spacious salon makes entertainment for multiple guests easy and comfortable.  The cockpit with mezzanine seating offers a comfortable, competitive fishing environment. The area provides plenty of freezer space and tackle/supply storage for long term travel. The size-able bridge area competes with the size of a flybridge found on larger modern sportfish boats today. FREEBIRD fully loaded has a 29.5 kts cruise and economical fuel burn at just around 70 GPH.
