“Mixmaster” is a Custom Built Knight Brothers Enclosed Flybridge Sportfish with a solid hand laid-up fiberglass hull and fiberglass over solid bottom growth cypress superstructure.Bulkheads and framing timbers are cypress. The high quality interior joinery is solid teak.This custom U.S. built yacht was constructed to last forever at a cost approaching $1 million in 1988! Teak and holly sole. “Mixmaster” also features “seamless windows”, which are common now, but unique in 1988, and the glass is 3/8″ tempered glass(not laminate “safety” glass), and is practically bullet proof! Fiberglass fuel tanks located aft of the engines instead of outboard allows easy access to outboard sides of both engines. Boat was built for serious fishing with transom steeply raked to back down on large fish and to provide clearance at the transom. Running gear is further forward to prevent fouling lines when fish are being close handled. Two watertight bulkheads, all three compartments are watertight; (lazarrtette, engine space, and bow compartment).  Hard chained, wide beam, makes for excellent seakeeping qualities as well as live-baiting.

“Mixmaster” was originally built for a Boca Grande couple and named “Mi Lady Fe”, the present owner purchased and renamed the vessel in 1998. With only two owners since new it is clear this vessel has been well regarded by each. The present owner has a well known diesel and marine services business in Ft. Lauderdale and “Mixmaster” has been very well cared for and upgraded throughout his ownership. VESSEL WAS REPOWERED IN 2014

The Knight Brothers have a long family tradition of building seakindly sportfish which will stand the test of time.

Knight Brothers boats:

Boat building has been a Knight family tradition for more than 100 years. Capt. Johns Knight Jr. said he has read in local history books that his forefathers’ boats were being used in Charlotte Harbor as far back as the 1880s.

In 1946, Knight’s father, Johns Sr., along with brothers Harold and Francis, continued the family tradition by building custom tarpon boats for the local anglers.

Moonraker and Moonraker II, two of the island’s more famous traditional Pass fishing boats, are still owned by the Knight family. Casuarina and Faithful II, another two recognizable Knight Brothers built boats also still work the Pass and are operated by Capt. Dickie Coleman, Capt. Charlie Coleman and Capt. Matt Coleman. Reprinted by permission, Capt. Sandy Melvin Gasparilla Outfitters, Boca Grande.

Vessel Walkthrough

From the large cockpit, one enters the Salon through a door offset to the portside. The main AC/DC distribution panel is just inside the Salon to port, with a chart table/desk just forward. Forward to port is the Dinette with bench seats. Opposite, on the starboard forward end of the Salon, is the Galley. Aft to starboard is the L-shaped sofa, covered with Ultra-Leather.

Going forward from the Salon is the central hallway, with the Master Stateroom with King bed to starboard, and a Guest Cabin with over-and-under bunks to port. There are two heads with stall showers forward of these Staterooms, with the Master bath to starboard and Guest bath to port. The second Guest Cabin is in the bow, with Double bed, and this Cabin shares the Guest Head aft to port.

Forward to starboard is the bait freezer and tackle center.

Going up the ladder from the cockpit, one enters the enclosed Flybridge through a sliding door. There are two Pompanette helm chairs and bench seats both to starboard and forward of the helm. The bench seat forward of the helm converts to a day bed.The enclosed Flybridge is air-conditioned, but also features opening windows across the front and on both port and starboard sides, as well as the sliding door aft, to provide complete natural ventilation on temperate days.

Additional Information

“Mixmaster” is a truly one off custom yacht that was built from the mold of “Moonraker”, a famous Knight Brothers Sportfish that continues to fish the Florida West Coast today although it is twenty years older than “Mixmaster”.

This yacht has only had two owners; the first owner had the vessel custom built to their specifications and spared no expense to get what is a great cruising/fishing yacht that is economical to operate and built to last. The second and present owner has had the vessel for 25 years. He owns a well known diesel engine and general marine repair facility in Ft. Lauderdale and he has continually maintained and upgraded the vessel to a high standard. A real “turn-key” boat, the seller will stand behind any survey issues.
