The 75-foot (22.86m) Buck Smith EL AMO is an outstanding value for her size and pedigree. Designed by Ed Monk, this boat showcases classic yet bold lines that are the hallmark of West Coast yachtfishers. EL AMO offers the best of both worlds providing the luxuries of a motor yacht with the capabilities of a sportfish.

The yacht showcases a timeless interior that is filled with natural light from the large windows. The main deck has an impressive open layout that allows everyone to stay apart of the conversation whether they are in the main salon, galley or dining area. EL AMO also has an enclosed pilothouse that provides another area for guest enjoyment with an L-shaped settee and helm station. Aft on the bridge is a deck space that offers excellent views of the action in the cockpit.

This yachtfisher has a great cockpit that has ample space for fighting multiple fish. Additionally, while at anchor or at the dock, the cockpit provides a great space for enjoying the outdoors. EL AMO features storage for the tender on the bow. There is also a bow bait tank, a desirable feature for West Coast anglers.

EL AMO accommodates 10 guests in the comfort of five well-appointed staterooms. The master suite is a private space accessed via its own staircases from the main salon. The stateroom features a king-size bed, vanity and en-suite bath with a shower. The yachtfisher’s additional staterooms include two queen-bed staterooms and two bunked twin staterooms. Private en-suite baths accompany the queen staterooms while the other two share a bathroom.

Yachtfisher EL AMO has had maintenance over the years to ensure her good condition. In 2014, the yacht’s generators were replaced, in 2015 the main engine was rebuilt, in 2017 new electronics were installed and in 2020 the davit was rebuilt.
