Bluewater Customers Continue their Campaigns Across the America’s Hottest Billfisheries
• Since taking delivery of their Viking, the Sydes have spent a couple productive seasons in the Dominican Republic and the team is currently enjoying staying on the Pacific side of Costa Rica.
• Three years of epic travels from the Caribbean to California has put many thousands of miles under the keel of this beautiful and capable convertible. It’s inspiring to see an owner getting so much fishing and fun out of their boat as Tony Sydes, his family and guests have so far!
• The profile of the Viking 66 implies power, speed and grace. Reel Development, equipped with twin 1,925 hp CAT engines, lives up to this aggressive reputation. The 174 square-foot cockpit is tournament-ready and the Seakeeper gyro stabilizer ensures low-roll days on the troll, despite the conditions.
• The salon boasts a spacious layout that is grand, yet practical for tournament campaigns and long-range travel, as the Reel Development crew enjoys. The salon also features a day head aft, conveniently placed immediately inside the electric-opening salon door from the cockpit.
• The flybridge is Viking’s proven tournament design featuring a center console helm with electronic controls, superb visibility, plus plenty of seating. Four staterooms with en suite heads and showers provide luxury and relaxation after a long day at sea.

• Taking ownership with all of the major heavy equipment already placed, and about a year left in construction, the family was able to make it their own with various layout tweaks, outfitting and final finish and decor preferences.
• Originally commissioned by another elite fishing team with international travel operations, the Jarrett Bay 84 will be perfect to accommodate the Sydes’ long-range campaigns to the Caribbean, Central America and anywhere their dreams may wander.
• Current plans are to take delivery of the new Reel Development in Summer/Fall of 2020 and fish any remaining Mid-Atlantic tournaments before heading to the Pacific via the Panama Canal.
