Harley 54x12 Center Console Cuddy
The new Harley 54x12 Kevlar/Airex Center Console Cuddy has to be the most exciting, ultrafast Sports fisherman yet to date in the history of sports fishing. This incredible trailerable yacht (F-650 and easy annual permit) can reach speeds of 70 mph with conventional, relatively small diesels, and even greater speeds with larger diesels!
Engines are fully flush beneath the floor, fully out of the way for serious fishing. This feature truly makes the boat more beautiful and functional --- far superior to outboards,
This exciting overnight vessel has three separate sleeping areas: a generous Master Stateroom forward with its own private head and shower, a queen bed located under the twin exterior L-shaped lounge couches is stateroom #2, and the Main Salon with the U-shaped couch converting into a large queen sleeper converts to stateroom #3… the boat sleeps six very comfortably in three separate rooms.
In the exterior there is easy access to the entire length of the vessel for fishing, with a very easy step from the L-shaped Lounges to the nonskid foredeck. The rear 60% of the boat is made for serious fishing. Talk about a tournament winner!
Stay out several days at a time, with enormous comfort. And stay out longer than any other boat can with continued comfort. The L-shaped Lounges seat eight comfortably, and the front of the Console seats two, with a dinette table serving all. Ten guests can simply enjoy drinks, or enjoy a complete dinner with comfort.
The 54 is a true deep V, with engines forward of the transom for greatly increased ride quality over outboards, and fuel efficiency enormously improved over conventional fast outboard vessels --- yet with the same speed (or greater) as the four engine outboard competitors.
Power ranges from a pair of 450hp Diesels (50 mph top, cruise 40), or twin 600hp Diesels (60 mph top, cruise 50-52 mph), or triple 560hp FTP diesels (72-73 MPH top, cruise up to 65 mph). And there is a comfortable room for a pair of 1000hp diesels, or even a pair of 1150hp Caterpillar 18s for the discerning customer who wants the maximum speed, getting the boat to 80 mph! Cruise over 70 mph if you like! Or back her down to 40 to 50 mph cruise with exceptional economy!
Absolutely NO WOOD is used in of the structure of this boat. Being wood free gives the boat maximum life and reliability.
The reliability, improved fuel efficiency, and long life of the diesels give this exciting Sportsfisherman superior speeds (cruise and top), a soft and dry ride, and incredible utility.
This boat is very trailerable. For the serious tournament fisherman who wants to fish east coast US one weekend, and west coast US the following weekend, this boat can be trailered from east coast to west coast in 3-4 days behind a F650 Supertruck. No need for separate boats for each coast. No escort is required for a 12’ beam, just a low cost annual overwide permit (typically $250 per year), and trip permits for going interstate (typically $10 per state for the trip). Several boat maintenance values offered by trailerability include: less boat deterioration by keeping the boat out of water, no bottom cleaning needed, less maintenance, utilizing your own mechanic versus the more expensive marina or dealer mechanic; elimination of the monthly $1000 slip fee; transportability, and the economy realized by faster and more direct interstate moves.
This is the fastest, largest, softest riding, most versatile and trailerable sports fishing yacht in boating history, guaranteeing excitement to the maximum!
