    Started in 1973 Buddy Davis built true wooden NC Offshore fishing vessels. Later along the way, Approx. 1983, Buddy went from Wooden Plank on Frame / Jig built boats to Fiberglass hulls and that set them apart from any other Carolina Boat.  They maintained the Carolina Flare and soft ride like the older Wooden boats but are now Fiberglass.  There is no mistake when you walk down the docks in just about any town along the Eastern Seaboard people know a Buddy Davis.  Buddy Davis is credited with building more than 350 boats; bringing yacht finishes to custom-built Carolina sport fishing boats; and, with incorporating many contemporary design innovations and construction techniques into the boat building process.
  “Marked Off” is a 1993 Buddy Davis Powered by twin MAN 2848 660hp Diesels w/ Approx. 2000 hours. She has a cruise of 24 knots and can reach 29 knots wide open. Her current owner is an avid fisherman and has kept her in good shape. She is ready to start making memories for her new owner.
