ACCOMMODATIONS

OVERWIEW:

Built in Wanchese, NC, by legendary Buddy Davis and sons, KEE-MERE is just what a smart off-shore fisherman might ask for. The sharp entry transitions to a moderate 14-degree deadrise at the transom, affording a quick time to plane, improved fuel economy and excellent lateral stability. And in anything less than a gale, that Carolina flare really keeps the spray down.

With a set of MTU M91 engines rated at 2,000 HP, she cruises at 33 knots and tops out at 40 knots. Perhaps the most impressive aspect of the 68 is how well it maneuvers at speed. With the advantage of standard-issue power-assist steering, one finger leans the 68 into a tight, banking turn, accomplishing a 180-degree change of heading in several boat lengths. It spins, backs straight, and performs all those other fishy maneuvers without any idiosyncrasies. It does seem to enjoy a slightly better speed (and ride) by adding a few degrees of the stainless-steel recessed tabs.

ACCOMODATIONS

KEE-MERE features a four-stateroom/four-head arrangement. Two of the starboard cabins come equipped with over/under singles, while the master stateroom to port amidships and the VIP guest quarters in the bow both offer queen-size island berths – with storage underneath.

INTERIOR:

The salon features teak wood veneer with eucalyptus inserts, carpet flooring with additional padding and runners for protection and tinted and tempered glass windows with Hunter Douglas solid teak valances and Silhouette blinds. Custom ultra-leather sofas with pneumatic lifting seats with storage underneath and the custom release marine coffee table allow for a comfortable entertainment area.

The galley against the forward bulkhead features a breakfast bar, a custom release marine table, L-shaped upholstered dinette with storage, Sub-Zero refrigerator, and freezer drawers, and both ceramic cooktop and microwave/convection oven. Flooring consists of teak and holly amtico strips.
