The “Big Wednesday” was built as the “No Problem” in 1975 for JoJo Del Guercio. She was the first of the famous 43’s built by the Merritt Boatyard. The boat was their first cold molded hull. The boat has been used to chase giant Bluefin tuna and blue marlin fishing in the Caribbean and USA. The ownership and fishing accomplishments of the boat and crews are legendary. She has been owned, operated and maintained to a very high standard by the same family for the past 16 years in South Florida. Re-powered in 2007 with new Cummins QSC 540HP motors. She is fast, comfortable, economical and as beautiful a boat as you will find.
