Scroll through the 47 photos in the gallery at and you’ll figure out quickly that the new 31 DV Miami was born to fish. It’s not just her bullet-proof 22-degree-deadrise that explains why this deep-V hull carries a lifetime structural guarantee. It comes from dedicated fishing folks. Observe the knife/tool racks on the after ends of the half-bulkheads behind the pilothouse and the (numbered) bins for sinkers that function also as toerails just inside the under-gunwale rod racks. Need more rod storage? How many would you like in the gunwales and the transom? How about a 7-rod rocket launcher on the after end of the pilothouse? Or a pedestal four-rod launcher in the huge cockpit? Tackle storage? Check the drawers under the port bench in the pilothouse and more in the cabin. With all that this Steiger flagship still offers plenty of optional family amenities, from refrigerator and microwave in the pilothouse to an enclosed head and V-berth in the cabin. Remember that Alan Steiger began with purpose-built, tough-as-nails clam skiffs. Rest assured that heritage still undergirds this sophisticated sportfisher. Base price with twin300-hp Yamaha four-strokes on an Armstrong bracket is $166,000.
