He loves putting his anglers on the fish, whether it be offshore for marlin and tuna or inshore for small game.

Impeccably kept, the 60 ft Viking Open Flybridge “Happy Ending” sets herself apart from the crowd. She has been fully refitted, with all new bridge enclosures, runners, and interior upholstery. This vessel has state-of-the-art AC units, including a superb mezzanine AC to keep anglers feeling fresh while still being part of the action on deck.
Happy Ending boasts a spacious salon, with an L-shaped seating area. Flat screen TV is available, as well as a fully equipped galley with granite countertops, sub- zero refrigeration, stove, and freezers.
Forward, this ample vessel has four staterooms and three full heads, all with showers.
Happy Ending is pleasing to the eye, featuring a fresh coat of paint and soothing teak throughout. She includes new props and bearings. Her four Seakeeper stabilizers add extra stability and comfort to an already exceptionally smooth fast ride, no matter sea conditions.
A recent article in Power & Motoryacht explains that Happy Ending’s remarkable running nature is due to her new hull design, with more convex sections in the forward third and latter half of the hull bottom. These design features translate into improved head-sea ride, lift, time to plane, and overall speed and efficiency, enhancing the vessel’s distinctive gentle drift motion. The article adds: “Competitive anglers will also enjoy her all-out speed. This boat managed a confident 31 mph in the slop, but when taken to calmer water, her top speed was 48.2 mph. She effortlessly cruised at 41.4 mph.”
Happy Ending has brand new fishing equipment and six tuna tubes, making her an ideal vessel for tournament fishing.
