General Description


The Buddy Davis 47 Convertible is one of the most popular Sportfishermen ever built. The 47 Davis popularity benefits from a solid fiberglass bottom with Divinycell hullside coring. Seeker offers the preferred walk-around forward master stateroom, guest stateroom, two heads with stall showers, galley up open main salon layout. This classic Carolina design still  makes the 47 an eye turner. The 8-V92 pans have been replaced, and the starboard engine was majored less than 950 hrs ago. Seeker’s interior is stunning, and she’s rigged to fish. This convertible boat will continue to turn heads at tournaments, as well as raise fish. A “turn key” glass Carolina Classic without a Big Budget.
