78' Buddy Davis 2000 "Plastic Toy"

Summary

TRADES CONSIDERED



Rare is it while traveling anywhere in the world on a custom built Sportfish, regardless the builder, that someone does not walk up to you and ask if this is a Buddy Davis.Following the foot steps of the iconic North Carolina custom builders Warren O'Neil, Sheldon Midgett, and Omie Tillett before him, Buddy Davis took North Carolina custom boat building blazing into the 21st century, with yacht quality finishes, worldwide distinctive 'Carolina Flare' and name recognition.


The PLASTIC TOY is indicative of Buddy Davis' forethought and vision, decades ahead of its time! The current, only second owner has had her since 2004, and with the assistance of the same full time captain, have fastidiously maintained her over the years....no expense has been spared and it shows as you go through the boat. She is turnkey and will survey well.
