1993 BHM Downeast Cruiser
Boat Type: Downeast Address: Amelia Island, FL, US Price: $69,000



This Maine built Lobster style sedan is one of the proven downeast semi displacement hulls built by the Atlantic Boat Company.  Both the name Duffy & Duffy and BHM are synonymous with the reputation that Down east boats have earned. These hulls have been developed over the last 150 years for the rigors of fishing off the Maine coast. With a full keel, flat after sections and a fine entry, these hulls have proven themselves steady in all but the most extreme weather conditions.  This efficient, fast, and easy to maintain cruiser is the perfect platform for a couple to transit the ICW or the Great Loop, with plenty of room to entertain along the way.   Or head to bluewater in comfort and safety, and make use of the huge cockpit for fishing and diving.
