Along North Carolina's Outer Banks, some of the world's best fishing lies just the other side of its most turbulent waters. In the competitive world of sportfishing, captains depend on safe, powerful, sure-footed boats that not only catch fish, but can slash through Oregon Inlet's 10-foot walls of water. A captain who can't handle the conditions heads back to the dock and thinks about changing jobs or running a different boat. Twenty-five years ago, a young charter captain named Buddy Davis thought differently. During the off-season, Buddy learned to build boats by working alongside local legends. Eventually his own designs took shape, and he began building custom, wooden sportfishing boats. And while the days of juniper planking and cold molded one-offs are a thing of the past, the legendary Davis™ performance and masterful aesthetics have evolved to become the signature elements of a Davis - Today they are one of the world's most sought-after, state-of-the-art sportfishing and cruising yachts.
