Hull No. 36 from Jim Smith Tournament Boats will be a 100-foot sport-fisher with a 24-foot beam, powered by a pair of 2,600 hp MTU M96 diesel engines.

Its hull will be constructed using a combination of cold molding and advanced composite engineering, while the all-new interior design will feature five staterooms, five heads and a separate crew quarters for four. Donald Blount and Associates is managing the high-performance naval architecture and engineering.

The boat is expected to cruise at 35 knots and top out at 40 knots. Jim Smith Tournament Boats, the originator of lightweight, high-performance sport-fishing yachts, has been creating custom boats out of Stuart, Florida, for 50 years.

“This new boat will continue our traditions of innovation, speed and efficiency,” says Jim Smith president John Vance. “We expect outstanding performance, in addition to the ability to travel and fish any of the world’s remote destinations in safety and comfort.” The second Jim Smith for this owner, Hull No. 36 should debut in 2022.
