Reel Deal Yachts has just announced a price drop — from $625,000 to $549,000 — on the 52-foot Buddy Davis Happy Day.

Happy Day is a 2006 build that, like so many Buddy Davis creations, is designed and outfitted to chase down big-game fish. She has a tuna tower, an air-conditioned helm, an Eskimo ice maker (that churns out 600 pounds of ice a day) and helm electronics from Furuno and Simrad.

Also noteworthy are the rod holders on her tower legs, the flush-mounted rod holders in her cockpit, the transom door with a gate, the transom fishbox, cockpit freezers and Rupp triple-spreader outriggers.

Engines aboard Happy Day are twin 1,360-horsepower MANs, each showing 2,630 hours. They push the boat to a cruising speed of 32 knots and a top-end of 38 knots — plenty fast for getting out to the canyons and back.
