General Description

"Kelly V" is an excellent example of a Custom Carolina Sportfish. Her hull was designed and built in Harkers Island, NC by Willis Boatworks, and her interior was completed nearby at the Jarrett Bay Yard. Since completion, "Kelly V" has also been upgraded and maintained by Huckins Yachts in Jacksonville, Florida.

With a signature Carolina hull design, a large cockpit, and an expansive flybridge, "Kelly V" has everything needed for serious offshore fishing. The cockpit houses a Release Marine fighting chair, an ice chipper, fishbox, and mezzanine seating, along with tremendous amounts of storage for tackle and gear. For the captain, the flybridge has an impressive setup, with two Furuno NavNet displays, a Northstar GPS and chart plotter, and a Simrad autopilot system.

If the fishing features were not enough, the interior of this boat is completely remarkable. The interior features a large salon with two sofas, a peninsula galley with bar seating, a generous master stateroom, starboard guest berths, and crossover berths forward.
