2000 Custom Express

Galveston, Texas


This Custom built express is a very unique sportfishing boat. The hull was built by J.B. Oliveros in Galveston, TX using plans acquired from Rybovich. The boat was then finished by Mockingbird Marine in Seabrook, Texas. The result was a tough no-nonsense fishing machine that's handles the sea very well. How about a stand-up engine room? This boat has it! The hull is foam cored fiberglass and the topside and interior is wood. She is rigged for big game fishing with 1100 gallons of fuel, tuna tower, Release fighting chair, updated electronics, helm deck air conditioning, spray rails, transom live well and teak deck. Doc Holiday would make a great charter or private fishing boat. Looking for a deal on a  sportfishing boat that won't break the bank? Here it is!
