2016 Fishing Boat Buyers Guide: Invincible 39 Open Fisherman

Invincible has a sharp new, focus on comfortable, family-friendly seating—and fun, too.

The sport-fisher world is not one in which false modesty plays well. So you can’t fault the Invincible Boat Company for its slogan: “The fastest, driest and best-riding open fisherman ever built.”

The claim comes from the industry’s patented ventilated stepped hull, designed by renowned naval architect Michael Peters, with an air-fed tunnel to boost speed and smooth the ride. It is designed to produce the lowest drag coefficient of any mono hull.

Featuring a molded stringer grid, the hull is built on plugs and molds precisely crafted with computer-directed routers and cutters accurate to 50/200ths of an inch. The result is a boat strong yet light. Invincible boats are designed to be run far and fished hard, without a bit of sacrifice in crew comfort.

Yes, they catch fish too.

Decks have paired aft insulated fish boxes that can hold 60-pound kingfish or wahoos “without bending their tails,” the company says. You get two more giant fish boxes in the bow, with the option of adding more.

Consoles accept big-screen electronics, shaded from sun by the design of the station.

An Invincible deck is one level to allow 360 degrees of fish-fighting with no steps; it also bears a diamond nonskid surface for sure footing, long wear and easy cleanup.

39 OPEN ­FISHERMAN

A factory-direct boat from Invincible lets you build your dreams by selecting options for this eminently sea-ready fishing boat, proven over and over by content customers. From picking hull color and canvas to deciding on number, size and manufacturer of outboard engine power, the 39 is your boat, brought to life by Invincible.

To the stepped-V ventilated tunnel (SVVT) hull, marry your choice of: optional T-top; full hardtop, with a crow’s nest if you like; or folding tower with dual station. Rig any as you like with lighting, electronics stations and rod holders.

Power? Up to you: triple or quad outboards, 300 or 350 hp Mercury Smartcraft Verados, or 350 hp Yamahas with Helm Master joystick controls. Triple-engine top speeds exceed 72 mph, and with 550-gallon fuel capacity, you can get to the farthest fishing grounds and back — up to 600 nautical miles — with speed and comfort.

There, make the most of the fishing gear you’ve selected: rod holders, outriggers, electrical reel outlets. Move freely on the single-level deck to rig for battle and boat fish. Above- and below-deck livewells total 130 gallons, and massive fish boxes abound.

A large side entry provides access to the console with a head-ready, fully lined interior. Invincible has a sharp new, focus on comfortable, family-friendly seating —and fun, too.
