EML 65 Sportfish
Whether it’s Cocos Island or the Great Barrier Reef, serious fishermen know that the biggest fish often live in remote areas of the world’s oceans. If you’re one of the intrepid anglers who braves these waters, you’ll want to check out the 65 Sportfish from EML. Featuring lightweight, high-strength aluminum mono-body construction, she’s based on the design specifications of PI-65 military patrol boats. The 65 also has EML’s “Hydro-lift” hull, which the builder says is designed for maximum safety and performance in rough seas. Clearly envisioned as a serious battlewagon, the 65 comes with with lots of standard amenities to make sure your expedition is successful, including: a BlueWater Marlin fighting chair, Eskimo ice maker, stainless steel Rupp rod holders, and FLIR thermal-imaging night-vision system. It’s no stretch to say that this 65 looks ready, willing, and able to get you out to those remote fishing grounds and, even more importantly, get you home safely.
