During a recent mid-June fishing trip, PMY editor in chief Richard Thiel and publisher Dennis O'Neill, plus Don Depouw and Jim Viestenz, vice president and president of Cruisers Yachts, respectively, got up close and personal with this shark. PMY senior editor Patrick Sciacca, who was also onboard that day, estimates weighed in at around 160 pounds. The group, who chartered a 43-foot Viking Express, caught a bunch of other fish that day, including another blue shark of similar size and a whole slew of bluefish. Not bad!
An epic introduction at the yard brought the eyes of the boating world to the MCY 80. The latest launch from this builder brings style and sophistication in a gleaming package.
