Project: Huckins 45 Sportfisherman

In the past August Huckins announced that it inked a deal to build a new 45 Sportfisherman.  In this new project Huckins says that its decades of industry experience will allow it to create a boat packed with features rivaling larger Sportfishermen.  This being a Huckins, a variety of custom requests will be incorporated. The two-stateroom, two-head boat with an expansive deck-house and climate-controlled bridge offers the ultimate in relaxation. Twin Cummins 425hp inboards will power this 45-footer to the fishing grounds at over thirty knots, and joystick maneuverability will pay off during the fight and back at the dock. A second helm station on the marlin tower plus full second-station electronics, 28’ Rupp outriggers, rocket launcher, rod holders, baitwell, ice machine that feeds into insulated bins for the day’s catch, extra built-in coolers, freezers, tackle center and bait center are all onboard. A day head has been thoughtfully incorporated to provide convenience for anglers and eliminate traffic through sleeping quarters.
