The Boat

2800 Blue Wave Purebay Hybrid

The boat's name (Sea Sharp) is derived from two other loves in my life, music, and technology. C# represents a musical note and the programming language C#. I would like to take credit for coming up with the name but my beautiful wife, who is an Assistant Professor of Music at THE University of Southern Mississippi (TO THE TOP!) came up with the name on our way to church one Sunday. 

In September 2019 Sea Sharp was changed to a hybrid v-hull boat made by Blue Wave. Blue Wave boats have long been eye turners at the dock and the 2800 Purebay Hybrid is a new type of boat designed for those fishing inshore as well as nearshore / offshore.

Specs:

  • LOA - 27' 10"

  • Beam - 9' 2"

  • Fuel Capacity - 94 gallons

  • Draft - 17"

  • Horsepower - Twin 300 Suzuki outboards

  • Electronics - Simrad

  • Fishbox - 500qt

  • Power poles - twin

  • Lightbar - yes

  • Sea deck installed throughout

  • Lebranc seats

  • Passengers - 11

With twin 300 engines the boat can reach a top speed of 74mph and can cruise between 45-50 mph making trips to the islands very quickly. It is a very versatile boat and is easily home in the marsh catching redfish or speckled trout. Other days when calmer it can be used to catch snapper offshore.
