1986 Azimut 56 Sportfish
Reel Happiness is a very rare and well-maintained vessel. Azimut made six of these boats in the mid-80s and applied their legendary Italian fit and finish to the sportfish market. This is an open flybridge version rigged with a tuna tower. Fisability is extraordinary with comfort to match. Galley/salon up and three staterooms below. Huge cockpit and swim platform. This boat was always a pet project for her owner and has been constantly improved and upgraded. Currently, she is set up with new electronics, a new generator, a new watermaker, and a great overall equipment package. Clean boat, with spotless engine room and bilges. A rare find!
She was hauled out in November 2023 for a fresh bottom job and other misc work.
