Since 1985, Gamefisherman has been producing some of the world’s finest traditionally styled custom gameboats, a look that is carried forward into its newest model, a beautiful 43-foot express. These boats are found in every ocean in the world and run by some of the sport’s finest captains. The new 43 was designed using input and experience from the 42 Gamefisherman, which was widely considered to be one of the most prolific billfish boats ever built. From Stewart Campbell’s Chunda to Nick Smith’s Old Reliable, these boats made history from Madeira to Magdalena Bay, and continue to do so today.

The 43-footer is a natural evolution for the Stuart, Florida-based boatbuilder, taking advantage of more-powerful engines with greater range; power options include 550 hp Cummins QSBs, 600 hp Volvo D8s and 600 hp Cummins QSCs. The hull is ­engineered to run comfortably and ­efficiently, while maintaining a clean wake at trolling speed in order to accomplish what it was designed to do best—raise fish.
