Big Dog went through a full re-power in 2018 at Bayliss Boatyard and received new MAN i6 800 hp motors, new Phasor 20 kW and a full paint job in the engine room. With her new motors she cruises effortlessly at 29 knots while only burning 60 GPH and 34 knots at WOT. She has had a full electronics upgrade in 2017 to include a Garmin package, FLIR camera and more. This classic is a fish raising machine and a proven money winner. With added fuel to 1100 gallons, her range is plentiful to fish anywhere you desire. Other updates: New upholstery on the salon couch New carpet in salon with runner New soft goods All new refrigeration All new AC system New blinds New outriggers New hardtop 2017 All new steering New washer and dryer 2019 New cockpit controls
