The Fastest Sport Fishing Boats

Large and in charge, these boats will leave you in the dust.

Despite the growing size of offshore fishing boats on the water today, increases in diesel engine technology have enabled engines to generate as much as 2,600 hp, allowing bigger boats to access speeds in excess of 45 knots to reach the fishing grounds faster than ever. Naturally we started asking ourselves what's the fastest sport fishing boat you can buy?

Marlin contacted some of the top boat manufacturers to find out the fastest sport fishing boat they've ever built, and you'll be amazed at both the size of these sport-fishers and the sheer speed at which they travel to chase marlin around the world. (Boats are listed alphabetically by manufacturer).
