Each year, South Carolina welcomes some of the most beautiful sport-fishing boats in the world for the annual Governor's Cup Billfishing Series. Below is a gallery of photos showcasing 29 boats in this year's fleet. Gryphon was the winning boat for this year's series, but each owner can be proud of their vessels when they roll into any marina in the world.
Since Gryphon won this year's Governor's Cup, it is listed first; the others are listed alphabetically by name.
• Spencer Yachts had the most boats, with seven. Ricky Scarborough (four) and Hatteras (three) were second and third.
• Of the 29 boats, 12 were at least 60 feet.
• The smallest boat in the fleet was 33 feet long. Only two sport-fishers dropped below 50 feet.
• Voodoo Child was the fleet's largest boat, at 72 feet.
