"PERFORMANCE Cheetahs Of the sea"
The boatbuilders of Stuart, FL

"They are all part of the family tree that began with Jim Smith's first performance sportfisherman 5O-years ago."

TWO KRICKETS
Our most recent build on the water.

Designed for a couple who love to raise sailfish and take evening cruises, the 48' Walkaround was built for ease of use, safety and 360 degree fishing. With a spacious interior layout, and a large mezzanine, the Two Krickets is light and nimble for everyday boating and big enough for chasing serious trophy fish on tournament weekends. Who says you can't have it all?

OVATION 100'
CURRENT BUILD - IN SHOP

The build of OVATION, a 100' custom sport fish is underway at our shop. The boat will be the second Jim Smith for the owner, with Jim Smith hull # 27 (Samurai) being their current boat. Ovation will be our largest convertible and second largest build ever, followed only by the 105' Marlena. Launch will be mid 2020 - Stay tuned for more details!
