52 Buddy Davis 1999 “RIGHT SIZED”

The 52 Express was designed by the creative minds of the Davis Engineering Team to be slightly wider and significantly lighter than the models currently on the water, yet retain classic lines and unmatched sea-keeping abilities that are synonymous with Davis boats.

Layout below decks features two generous staterooms and two head accommodations. The center line helm provides all-around visibility and a matching helm seat gives the copilot an equal sense of power. Just aft of the command center, two luxurious L-shaped settees allow guests to stay close to all the action, whether fishing or cruising. The cockpit is designed for serious fishing with its built-in bait well.
