THE DEALERSHIP was built by Lydia Boats, Inc. of Ft. Pierce, FL, one the world's finest builders of mid-to-large custom yachts. Lydia yachts are particularly well known for their heavy-duty hulls made from a 5 ½” thick sandwiched fiberglass / AREX core design which provides unparalleled performance in the harsh environment regularly experienced by tournament anglers. THE DEALERSHIP was re-powered with twin MTU 12V183 turbo charged engines that develop a total of 2500 hp providing a top end speed of 30 knots and a cruising speed of 26 knots.
During the period 2004-2006, the previous owner commenced a total refit and renovation during which former Rybovich craftsman were hired to replace every mechanical, electrical, and hydraulic system. From the tower down, including the entire bridge and helm areas, cockpit, interior salon, staterooms, and all electronics - literally every square inch of THE DEALERSHIP was either replaced or rebuilt. The result is a very unique custom-built “Lydiavich” sportfish yacht having one of the industry’s strongest hulls, the finest engines all combined with exquisite “yacht quality” workmanship throughout.
