Built in 2008 by Sculley Boat Works, this was custom built for a client who wanted to make sure there was enough room to entertain and stay aboard for extended trips while also maintaining its status as one of the best fishing vessels on the water. With its 3 cabin arrangement, this is the perfect boat for those who are ready to make the trek to remote fishing grounds but just as equally at home catering to the families that need to sleep 6.

Lucky Fin has been meticulously maintained and used very lightly. The motors were replaced in 2013 to the CAT C-18s and while maintaining the 360 degree access around them.

As you enter from the cockpit on the starboard side you are greeted by warm woods and a mesquite wood floor throughout. To port you have a large L-shaped seating area with storage underneath the cushions and varnished wood table in the center. Forward of the port seating area is the galley featuring Wolf two-burner glass top induction range and microwave convection oven, Sub Zero dual drawer refrigerator and dual drawer freezer, Miele dishwasher, and ample cabinetry storage. Just starboard of the galley is a dinette with a Corian countertop table and additional storage under the seating. Aft of the dinette is the main electrical panel along with the A/V locker. Entertainment for the salon and galley is provided by a Sharp Aquos 37" TV, DirectTV satellite receiver, Bose surround sound A/V system, Sirius satellite radio tuner and Bose iPod dock. Behind the TV is a compartment housing the two DirectTV HD satellite receivers, Linksys wireless router, and KVH satellite phone handset.


As you walk down the staircase from the main deck you enter the guest corridor which features a forward master with en-suite head, a closet with Miele Washer/Dryer to port, an enclosed third cabin with twin athwartship bunks port side aft, twin bunks starboard mid corridor, and a second shared head starboard aft. Under the staircase is ample storage and a central vac system to the lower cabins and salon area as well as access to the Simrad autopilot fluxgate compass.

The master has a full size berth with spacious en-suite head to the port side. The head has a full mirrored vanity, Corian countertop, and bench seat in the shower. There is ample storage under the berth as well as two lower drawers, a small desk with additional storage lockers and cabinets overhead. Starboard aft includes a hanging closet with four drawer arrangement underneath. Along with the indirect rope and overhead lighting, there is also a large Plexiglass hatch with removable privacy screen providing access to the foredeck and plenty of natural light. The entertainment center in the master includes a 26” Samsung TV on an electric lift from the ceiling that is paired with a Bose/DirecTV interface.

All the way port aft is the enclosed stateroom with twin berths. Each bunk contains storage under the mattress and reading lamps. Outboard and aft is the hanging closet and storage drawers. The entertainment center contains a 21” Sharp Aquos TV and Pioneer stereo.

Starboard mid-corridor there is another set of twin bunks set fore and aft divided by a curtain with storage under each mattress. Opposite the bunks is an additional storage locker that is currently set up for tackle and fishing rod racks.

Just aft of the corridor berths is a shared head that contains a Corian countertop vanity with brass sink, mirrored medicine cabinet, Dometic Vacu-flush toilet, and molded fiberglass shower.
