Koenig’s First Take:
This is one aggressive boat. Her builders claim a top speed of 63 knots, and from the looks of her,
I’d say that’s not just bark. It’s bite.
One of the more interesting boats I got to climb all over at this past Palm Beach boat show was the Invincible 39' Open Fisherman, which sat up on a trailer near the front of the show fairly snarling at the showgoers as they made their way past. The boat has lines that are about as aggressive as you can get without delving into the realm of ... let’s just call it overcompensation. I mean these lines really work, they push it right up to the edge. And they’re not just braggadocio. With quad outboards I’d bet this boat cracks the 60-knot mark for real, out on the water, and not just on the pages of a press release.
That speed is thanks in no small part to the 39’s high-tech hull. It’s a Michael Peters design—the Stepped Vee Ventilated Hull—that Invincible claims gives this boat “the lowest drag coefficient of any monohull in the world.” That low drag obviously helps the speed numbers, but it also should make the boat highly fuel efficient, you know, relatively speaking!
Invincible prides itself on a high level of customization. And as such, this 39 can be fitted out to either be a fishing boat suitable for tournament competition, or simply a very fast, very fun way to get from point A to point B. And once you reach point B, with lines like these, you can pretty much rest assured you’re going to be very, very welcome.
