One Of The Legendary Bluewater Sportfishers, All Welded Aluminum Construction, Cummins Powered!
Incredibly strong, comparatively light weight and very fast and efficient for her size, this Striker 44 is one of only 98 total that were manufactured, all in the town of Omastrand, Norway.
Featuring all aluminum plate, welded construction, with hull thickness of a 1/4 inch and superstructure plating of 3/16 you can kiss de-lamination, soft spots, elevated moisture content and loose bulkheads goodbye forever.
The utilization of above waterline sea chests instead of thru-hulls for sea water connections, and fuel tank man-holes for inspection and cleaning are further bloodline ties her commercial ship design pedigree.
For the sportfisher, over the years some have alleged that the harmonics of the aluminum hull actually attract Marlin, lore is that they attempt to board these boats upon hearing them, but whether you will need to suit up in Kevlar to avoid being impaled by flying fish is another matter...
As testament to their rugged and lasting construction, virtually all of those not lost to damage or neglect are still in service. When boarding a Striker you immediately feel you are aboard a different class of boat blending the exterior construction and appearance of a commercial or naval vessel with the interior comfort and gentility of a fine sport fishing boat.
With an interior completely updated and rebuilt and the boat re-powered by a prior owner under contract with a well known Florida yard, this old girl presents herself very well, all the features and accessories expected of a vessel in this class.
A good solid boat with ample lifetime remaining, perhaps another forty years if lovingly tended to, she is the uncommon boat of choice for the uncommon buyer, no question about it.
Seller has obtained letter from MARAD removing the Coastwise restriction from the vessel due to Jones Act, subject to limitations on operating area and being for sportfishing up to 12 passengers.
