This is truly one of the most unique and head-turning boats I have seen in long time!  Truly amazing lines, one-of-a-kind concept and design, and BUILT to do battle. I doubt there is anything else quite like the Chesapeake 53' Deadrise Center Console anywhere else!
She is powered by four (4) Mercury Verado 300hp outboards with only 480 hours and warranty until April of 2022, which push her to an easy 30 knot cruise and 36 knots WOT.  She has an Onan diesel generator, Garmin electronics, bow thruster, and plenty of other great features including:
  • Tower with full controls, hardtop, and twin pedestal seats
  • Very livable cabin with queen berth, standup head/shower, galley area, dinette, and Air Conditioning/heat
  • Triple Garmin screens at main helm (chart plotter/radar/bottom machine/autopilot) and CHIRP transducer
  • Five (5) main helm deck forward-facing seats with oversized hardtop shade and 3-sided enclosure
  • Pompanette fighting chair 
  • Fully-rigged fishing cockpit area with tackle storage, live well, 2 large macerated fishboxes, bait prep area, refrigerator, flush mounted rodholders and rocket launchers (26 overall!)
  • Lee outriggers
  • Fresh water and salt water washdowns
  • Bow pulpit with anchor windlass with remote controls
  • Tri-level oversized cabin top sunpad with canvas (29' X 14')
  • Covers for outboards, helm seating, and bow lounge
  • Nine (9) Anchor Hatch Metal lockable storage compartments and bilge access throughout- tremendous amount of storage!
  • Pop-up cleats, 3-sided helm enclosure, and overhead cabin hatches
  • Multi-colored underwater lights, and the list goes on and on

Interior Layout

There is no doubt that this boat was built to fish.  Every aspect of her design and deck layout lends to just about any style fishing desired- trolling, deep-dropping, kite fishing, you name it!  Wide decks leading all the way around the center console, an open bow, and a tremendous cockpit.  14 flush-mounted rod holders alone, with plenty of room for more if desired!  But the other surprise is the use of space in the living quarters of the center console:  there is an easy-to-enter cabin door to port that leads into the larger than expected cabin.  Aft is an L-shaped counter with solid surface counter top , 2-burner electric stove and stainless sink.  Cabinet storage is located both above and below for dry goods and galley ware. To starboard is a dinette with table matching the galley counter tops and a comfortable settee.  Forward is the roomy sleeping quarters which features a large centerline queen berth with storage beneath, storage to port and starboard, and an overhead hatch.  To port is the private head with electric flush head, matching countertop and sink with vanity, and a grated wood sole for showering.  Just aft of the head to port is another small section of the galley that features a matching countertop, refrigerator with freezer compartment, and convection microwave. The cabin has an ornate wooden sole, is equipped with a reverse cycle air conditioning and heating system, and offers 6'4" of headroom!!  The interior accommodations are certainly adequate for several days at a time for a couple- much more than you might expect from a center console.
