Iain Lawrie, Bradford Marine; www.bradford-marine.com “I think that people who actually are looking for a classic Carolina sportfishing boat will find the Buddy Davis to be a more affordable choice than other boats out there. They’re fiberglass and they made a lot of them, and they were all powered mainly with the 8V92 Detroit Diesels so they become very affordable to people who are looking to restore them and bring them back to their former glory.
Clute Ely, Boatworks Yacht Sales ; www.boatworksyachtsales.com “It truly is an incredible boat relative to what its capabilities are versus price. Honestly I don’t think any other boat competes with it, at least not successfully. There was nobody else able to do in  what that 49 was doing. I honestly don’t believe it’s close since it just offered just so much more to the consumer. About the only knock on it people like to throw is that it’s wet in some sea states.
