1997 Custom Carolina Jarrett Bay Sportfish


Morehead City,NC,United States

  • Boat Summary
  • Full Details

Cat warranty and mezzanine


This is a rare opportunity to purchase the most productive sportfisherman that has ever been built by Jarrett Bay Boatworks. The Chain Link originally commissioned as the Salty Fare, has won and placed in  more tournaments out of N.C. than any other boat in the Jarrett Bay fleet. The Salty Fare and Chain Link crew have collectively won the Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament, Pirate's Cove Tournament, Hatteras Marlin Club Tournament, Swansboro Tournament and two Cape Fear tournaments just to name a few.

C-12 Cats provide a comfortable 25 knot cruise, while burning 40 g.p.h. The current warranty is transferable to the next. Several upgrades have been added such as new teak deck and covering boards, new mezzanine, new electronics and Eskimoe ice maker.

The Chain Link provides a great  ride in a sea, trolls in the trough with ease, and catches fish like nobody's business. Now is the time to add your personal eppisode to this sport fishing legacy.
