The semi-custom Mikelson 43 SF is one of the only sportfishers on the market with the Cummins Zeus "Pod Drives". This revolutionary propultions system provides simple close quarter handling (via a "smart joystick"), up to 25% inproved economy at light and fast cruise speeds, and has the M43 performing more like a speedboat than a 36,000 LB sportfisher....

Introduced in 1997, the Fexas designed Mikelson 43 Sportfisher has been built to fulfill Mikelson's entry-level sportfisher niche. Over seventy (70) custom M43's have been delivered to date.
Based highly on the popular Mikelson 50 SF, the Mikelson 43 Sportfisher offers many of the same attributes such as a large flybridge with aft tournament station, low center-of-gravity, custom interior layout, and a fast, smooth, efficient ride. The M43 is built on a solid fiberglass hull and is offered in both forward and aft galley layouts.
The optional flybridge staircase access (in lieu of a ladder) make the large flybridge far more accessible and much easier on the knees.
Priced significantly below the competition and with a fit second to none, the Mikelson 43 Sportfisher has set a new standard in the 40-foot range.
