$20k Price Reduction 11/17. Exceptionally Clean with tons of upgrades.
Calvin Beal has a reputation for building some of the finest Downeast boats on the planet and "RUBY BELLE" is no exception. Fast and effecient with a single 400 horsepower Volvo diesel, this boat is the ultimate sport fisher. The current owner is an extremely knowledgeable boater and has done a lot of upgrades including, custom tower, 120 gallon split bait tank, 21 rocket launchers on the tower, all new canvas, satellite T.V. mount and winch for harpoon plank, and full service on the main engine.
With an enormous cockpit, huge bait capacity, and 18 knot cruise, this is one that must be seen.
"RUBY BELLE" is a pristine 34' Calvin Beal with all the options. She was purchased in Massachusetts and brought out to the West Coast where she underwent several improvements. In 2015 the tower was shortened for improved stability while maintaining visibility. A full canvas enclosure was custom built for the upper station, providing the comfort of a fiberglass crows nest, without the unnecessary weight.
Several fishing options were added as well, including the addition of 21 rocket launchers, a Bluewater bait systems 120 gallon split bait tank and new lower enclosure.
All of the soft goods were replaced, including the V-berth, seat cushions, and a custom lounge pad on the motor box.
Power is provided by a single Volvo Diesel engine that offers speed and efficiency. The downeast design provides a great ride at all speeds, and is unparalleled in the way she drifts.
Stepping into the pilothouse from the cockpit, you will find a well laid out helm complete with Floscan, radar, Garmin plotter, Sitex commercial sounder, Simrad autopilot, dual VHF radios and control for the anchor drum. There is a large center helm bench, flip down side seating, and a custom lounge cushion on the motor box.
Stepping down into the living area from the pilothouse is a galley to port with sink and storage, to the starboard side is a full stand up head and shower.
Forward is a large V-berth with a Samsung smart T.V. complete with satellite service. Just behind the V berth is a Rival microwave.
AC power is provided by a 1000 watt Xantrex Inverter system.
To say that "RUBY BELLE" has a large cockpit would be an understatement. You can easily fish 5 without any issues at all. In the center of the cockpit is a custom Bluewater bait tank that is split with 60 gallons per side. Above the pilothouse are 21 rocket launchers to store all of your rods out of the way, and Freeman marine hatches keep the bilges nice and dry while providing great access to all compartments.
The tower has been customized to be shorter than the original build, this drastically improves the stability of the boat, while providing excellent visibility while looking for fish.
There are full controls in the tower as well as a chart plotter, autopilot control and 12 volt outlets for gyro stabilized binoculars.
There is an electric winch with control, should you decide to add a swordfish plank.
Up in the bow is an EZ 1500 anchor drum, mount for a swordfish plank, and custom removable rail piece on the pulpit.
