Young Jong Ho is powered by twin 550 Caterpillar C-7A diesel engines, which will quickly spool up to 28 knots. Dial it back to a 23-knot cruising speed to optimize fuel efficiency and increase range. High-strength, stainless-steel double-tapered propeller shafts connect the diesel engines to the pod drives, which have 4-blade nibral propellers. Pod drives increase the vessel’s maneuverability, a plus for a sportfisherman.

Young Jong Ho’s cockpit, or “dance floor,” is very spacious for a midsize vesse. Grab your rod from the locked stowage compartment and continue to the bait- prep center, which has a sink, rigging board, deep tackle drawers, lazarette and fishbox. Fresh bait can be stowed in a 40-gallon transom livewell with large overboard drains and LED lighting. There are four rod holders and a fighting chair that mounts to a reinforced aluminum backing plate. Open the transom door, which has a top gate, for getting that big tuna on deck. Stow your catch in two insulated fish boxes with a macerator pump-out system ,or the icebox fitted with a gasketed lid, gas spring actuator, full-length stainless-steel piano hinge and custom latch. Take advantage of the saltwater or freshwater washdown station before gearing back up at the bait-prep center for another round.

Young Jong Ho’s helm deck is just a few steps up from the cockpit. The captain takes control at the starboard side helm in a comfortable bench-style helm seat with an adjustable footrest. A companion bench-style seat that is reversible is to port. Face forward and join the captain as he cruises out to the fishing grounds, or switch to aft-facing and join guests at the port side lounge with a table. Stow your rods under the lounge and gear in the tackle center with drawers.
