Mikelson has delivered well over seventy-five of these custom built, Fexas designed sportfishers since the models introduction in 1988. Boasting an exceptionally wide beam, huge flybridge with aft tournament station, and a luxurious fit second to none, the Mikelson 50 Luxury Sportfisher has raised the bar in West-Coast sportfishing.

Powered with twin QSC-540 "Common Rail" Cummins diesels, running on a highly efficient Tom Fexas hull and holding 1,000 gallons of fuel, the Mikelson 50 Luxury Sportfisher is a serious fishing machine with the cruise-ability of a long-range motoryacht.

The optional flybridge staircase access (in lieu of a ladder) make the giant flybridge far more accessible and much easier on the knees. In 2000, Mikelson introduced the Aft-Galley layout bringing even more diversity to the custom built Mikelson 50 Luxury Sportfisher. The Mikelson 50 Luxury Sportfisher has revolutionized boat building and become the ultimate fish/cruise vessel.

The engine room on a Mikelson is really what makes these boats shine. By being aft on the boat with a reduced motor angle, you not only significantly reduce noise in the interior spaces, but also gain a lot of efficiency.

You would be hard pressed to find another boat that has the engine accessibility that a Mikelson has. With two hydraulic hatches that open on the back deck, there is 360 degree access of both motors.

"COYOTE" is powered by the preferred Cummins common rail QSC-540's. Both of the motors had the 1000 hour service done in April 2014, which included heat exchangers, aftercoolers, raw water pumps belts as well as injector cleaning. The boat was hauled out in April 2014 and new drip less shaft seals were installed as well as new cutlass bearings. Shafts and propellers were also sent in and tuned. Both motors are equipped with large Sound Down mufflers.

Aft of the motors in the center, is a 12 KW Northern lights generator in a sound shield that also had a full service completed on it in 2014.

All motors had fluids changed in December 2015.

On the starboard side is an 800 gallon per day Village Marine water maker that had both membranes and all pre filters replaced in 2014. There is a remote panel for the water maker in the salon. The oil in the high pressure pump was also replaced in 2014.

In the aft area of the space is a tournament helm for unprecedented view of the cockpit. This helm has full controls including Sidepower bow thruster control.

Next to the tournament station is a ladder that leads to the crows nest on the hardtop that has a Lewmar hatch to keep water out, should adverse weather arrive.

Forward is a very large seating area with a table that drops down and creates a lounging area with filler cushion.

The forward main helm is laid out for excellent visibility of all electronics and all controls are within easy reach Of both of the custom Stidd helm seats.
