Finest Kind is a 37’ Merritt built
in 1964 by Buddy Merritt himself. He called the 37 “THE PERFECT
FISHING BOAT” and built her with one purpose in mind…to raise and
catch fish. Since hull number 12 was launched she has been
meticulously restored and repowered with twin 350 hp Yanmar Diesels
giving her a 24 knot cruising speed.
The Finest Kind was the top boat in 2010 with six Ahi (tuna) over 100 pounds, totaling 790.4 pounds. It weighed the largest of the year at 164.3 pounds, along with a 158.3 (the third largest) with Co-Capt. Chad Leonillo and crewman Jimmy Francis.
