Pompano Beach, FL

Brier Patch was built to travel by Roy Merritt and his experienced crew to take you to remote locations with economy and comfort. With reliable Cat Power and back-up systems throughout, Brier Patch was built to fish big game or light tackle for marlin and tuna offshore while hosting a skiff to access remote inshore fisheries. Maintained by Merritt Boat and Engine Works, she must be seen to be fully appreciated. Many upgrades and improvements. This is an opportunity to take immediate delivery of a very low hour 72 that is rigged for serious fishing.
