This 36' Memco (Mabry Edwards Marine Company) is a classic custom express sportfishing boat that is one of only about 20 made. Mabry Edwards built his brand of custom boats in the northeast Florida area from the 1950's to the 1980's. His boats have the reputation of being fantastic sea boats of excellent quality. "Show Time" is a wonderful example of the 36' that has had numerous upgrades throughout the years.
The boat was re-powered in 1995 with her current pair of Cummins 6 cylinder 300hp diesel engines with 1,100 original hours. Her performance is outstanding with a cruise speed range of 20 to 27 knots and a top speed of 34 knot. Her owner reports that at 2,200 rpm's the boat will cruise at 27knots, burning 10 gph give an estimate MPG of 1.50, remarkable for a 36', deep-v hulled vessel.
Upgrades through the years include diesel 3.5kw generator, air conditioning system, exterior polyurethane paint job, custom aluminum arch w/ bimini top, full enclosure and cockpit sun shape. The owner has also updated the electronics including a 10" Furuno GPS NavNet system with radar, Furuno color fish finder, Furuno GPS Navigator and a Robertson autopilot system.
The cabin is nicely finished in a white vinyl simulated ostrich skin material with varnished teak and painted white trim. The soled is a faux teak while the dinette table is a varnished teak and holly. The upholstery has been updated with a navy blue Sunbrella that looks like new. The layout features a fore and aft facing dinette aft to starboard, a enclosed head aft to port, a small galley unit forward of the head on port and a large V-berth area in the boat. Headroom in the cabin is about 6'2".
