Yellowfin Yachts 39

This big 39 can get a serious crew to serious waters with the fuel burn of smaller boats.

December 24, 2014

Outboard fishers keep getting bigger. Blame that on the success of big outboard builders like Mercury who step up to the plate with turbocharged 300 hp Verados and efficient new Enertia ECO-series props, which our editors have noted to increase fuel efficiency by as much as 20 percent. Together with Yellowfin’s speedy stepped hull, this big 39 can get a serious crew to serious waters with the fuel burn of smaller boats. No wonder survey respondents named speed and range the top two attributes in our Benchmark survey.

Once there, the wide-beamed vessel owns up to its survey accolades for fishability by offering a stable platform and up to 150 gallons of livewell capacity, depending on how you equip your boat. There is more than one helm station design; in fact, every key component on the Yellowfin can be personalized. One of the most coveted helm designs gives ample space for three widescreen displays, in addition to VHF radio and sound systems controls. Leaning post options also abound, and one incorporates an enormous livewell for extra bait capacity. No wonder available equipment rated as one of the high five attributes among Yellowfin aficionados.
