RING LEADER/Ullberg Express Sportfish

In 2009, we're launched the semi-custom yacht, RING LEADER, a 65' Express Sportfish.

RING LEADER is pretty long for an Express, but wow, she is fast!!! Naval architect, Robert Ullberg, Ullberg Yacht Design Inc., Winter Park, FL worked closely with Ring Power Corporation on this new concept. Ring Power is the Caterpillar distributor for northern Florida and one of the largest Caterpillar equipment dealers in the Southeastern United States.

It's no surprise that RING LEADER's engine room is the real focus of the vessel. She is powered by Cats - big twin Caterpillar C-32s. She cruises at 39 knots with a top speed of 43 knots. The exposed fuel lines are polished stainless steel with chrome accessorized engine parts.

The interior cabinetry and bulkheads are finished in quarter sawn teak. The cabin sole is maple, and the soles in the heads offer a unique twist with burled walnut. Three plasma TVs, a granite salon table, state-of-the-art electronics and crew accommodations for four make RING LEADER a stylish and comfortable ride!

She wouldn't be complete without all the sport fishing amenities. RING LEADER features two 600 lb/day ice makers for fish storage, Rupp 46' hydraulic outriggers and center rigger and a variable setting fighting chair that transforms into a rocket launcher or live well hookup. Each cockpit corner has plug-ins for downriggers, deep drop electric reels and standard reels. Two bait freezers and fish box are under cockpit sole and three large tackle drawers are located under helm sole. There is a large rod storage locker in the bridge deck settee and four teaser reels on the tower.

We greatly enjoyed working with Robert Ullberg and Ring Power to create a clean, fast and beautiful, new sportfish design.

We would love to build Hull 2 for you! Contact us today!
