56-foot Open Convertible built for fun fishing in the Atlantic, Caribbean and Central America
The owners of Renegade have their sights set on fishing throughout South Florida, spending summers in the Bahamas, and the winter and spring months in Costa Rica. With such a wide variety of fishing planned for a relatively more compact boat, it has been tricked out like a billfishing Swiss Army knife.
The impressive lower helm station features a large peninsula console extending from the port side with three 22-inch Garmin displays and a full electronics package from Atlantic Marine Electronics (AME). Forward of the peninsula is a spacious dinette with integrated storage for rods up to 8 feet in length. The dinette boasts a custom hi-low pedestal from Marine Tables that converts the dinette to a daybed or additional overnight sleeping accommodations.
A ladder adjacent to the mezzanine seating gives quick access to the command bridge above. Ascending to the flybridge invokes a sportfish convertible feel as you look upwards at the custom Palm Beach Towers 6-foot gap tuna tower and 44-foot Rupp outriggers. Keeping everything familiar for the captain, the flybridge features a peninsula console nearly identical to the unit found on the lower bridge. Three 22-inch Garmin displays are joined by the signature teak helm pod and full AME electronics package, while the captain and mate sit comfortably in Release Marine helm chairs. Overhead, molded into the hardtop is a recessed electronics pod and hi-speed teaser reels.
The flybridge welcomes guests and crew to L-shaped seating forward of the peninsula console across from lounge seating to starboard – all with generous dry storage space underneath. The deck is coated in a durable, low-maintenance custom marine decking that includes laser engraved inlays and a faux teak look. Looking forward from the flybridge, you can spot the Alexseal Cloud White topsides, faux teak toe rail, flush mount bow hatch and built-in pulpit with polished stainless cap and windlass components.
Renegade’s owner & crew are already enjoying the connected experience between the open salon and cockpit while landing their first blue marlin on Hull 67’s first-day fishing in the Bahamas immediately after taking delivery in late June. They are equally excited about the performance and stability of this 56-foot platform thanks to Jarrett Bay’s legendary ride being complemented by a pair of high-tech MTU 10V-2000 M96 engines rated at 1,600mhp each, and a larger Seakeeper 18 gyro stabilizer. These systems are joined by a Northern Lights 25kW generator, FCI watermaker with spot-free rinse and many other components arranged for easy maintenance in the spacious engine room.
The breathtaking finishes and custom features of Jarrett Bay’s latest masterpiece are joined by a truly unique open convertible concept designed in-house and brought to life by Jarrett Bay’s experienced craftsmen (there are no women on the construction crew) and shipwrights. Although it is exciting to see a multi-year custom sportfish build go from a jig on the shop floor to an eye-catching stunner at the dock, it is equally exciting to watch the owner and crew already showcasing Jarrett Bay’s “Born to Fish” motto in fine style as they make their way through the Atlantic, Caribbean and Pacific. You’ll want to keep an eye out for Renegade!
