“If You Had A Million Dollars, Would You Buy This Custom 53′ HydraSports Suenos?”
By: Joseph Simonds on August 24, 2015
It’s expensive boat time!
But first, do you remember the hit song, “If I had a Million Dollars” by the Canadian rock band the “Barenaked Ladies”?
In the song, they talk about all of the things they would buy if they had a million buckaroos.
They mention buying everything from:
- A House
- A Tree Fort
- A Monkey
- Pre-wrapped sausages
- A Fur Coat
- A Lamb or an Emu
- More Kraft Dinner with Dijon Ketchup
- And even a “K-car” (a nice reliable automobile)
But they never mention anything about buying a Boat!
An Emu but no Boat! Come on, guys!
Doggone Canadians need to get their priorities straight… just kidding all three of you Canadian readers that we have…
The $1 Million Dollar Question…
So that begs the question, what would you buy today if you were given $1 million dollars with the only caveat that you MUST spend it all…
And oh, by the way, you had to spend it on a BOAT!
And just ONE Boat (I know my brother Luke would say a fleet of flats boats).
The Boat That I Can’t Get Out Of My Head…
First of all, if you didn’t already know this, HydraSports disrupted the entire center console boating game this year when they came out with the longest, baddest, strongest, most technologically advanced center console boat in the universe.
Heck, I think they ever shocked themselves with how amazing the boat (aka fishing yacht) turned out.
To think that back in the day it was rare to see a 30ft center console, let alone one that is almost double in length! So it really is wild to think how far we have come in such a short time with fishing boats.
And it is no surprise that the large center console boats are on fire right now… the stock market is up (well maybe not today), more people are out fishing, 10,000 baby boomers are retiring every day, and the center console boat is one of the best overall fishing platforms out there.
Tons of space, more rod holders than you count, easy to walk around the entire boat, can reach speeds over 60mph to get offshore quicker than ever, and you can still pull up to any sandbar on a Sunday without blinking an eye.
Today, if you head down to Fort Lauderdale, Miami, or the Florida Keys you will see more 40-43 center console boats than ever before. In fact, the 38ft+ center console boat industry has literally exploded ever since boat sales picked up somewhere around 2011-2012.
Boats Like These Beautiful Center Consoles:
But who would have ever guessed that we’d see a 53-foot long center console!
Not to mention a center console with a $1 million price tag (or more depending on your customization).
I think my 91-year old grandfather would have a heart attack if I told him there was a center console boat that was 53 feet long with quad 557 engines that went for a million bucks!
(You can read about my conversation with my 91-year-old grandfather who told me about his first offshore boat with dual 25 HP motors – the most powerful at the time – all in this popular POLL article called “Is There Such Thing As Too Much Horsepower On An Outboard Boat? Take the Poll”.
And ever since I caught my first glimpse of the 53′ Custom HydraSports with Quad 557 engines, I just can’t get it out of my head…
Why Do I Like The 53′ Custom HydraSports Boat?
Besides winning the following awards…
Awarded… Best in Show, Miami International Boat Show, February 2015
Awarded… Mil-Tough Rating, Structural Composites, February 2015
Awarded… Top Product, Boating Industry Magazine, May 2015
This over the top center console boat has everything that a fishing nut with a family could ever desire!
Enough fishing deck space (and great looking SeaDek) in the back to accommodate tons of anglers, friends, and family…
Enough lounging and sunbathing space in the front of the boat to keep any wife happy…
A center console dashboard panel that would make your grandpa blush…
Fish boxes (multiple) big enough to fit 6ft+ fish, friends that annoy you, or even kids in time out (not recommended)
And it even has a state of the art cabin if you want to take an afternoon siesta or do an overnight fishing trip.
Oh, and the word “Suenos” means “Dreams” in Spanish, so I think it is fair to say Hydrasports created a boat that was only something anglers dreamed about years ago…
Check out the must-watch video tour of the boat to see all of the amazing features (including how disgustingly fast it gets up on a plane with its quad 557 engines by Seven Marine).

The $1 Million Boat POLL
(all of these boats/yachts below are currently for sale right around the $997,000 mark)
Although I am personally nowhere close to being able to afford a 53′ Custom HydraSports Suenos (let alone the HydraSports 3400), it is never to early to dream…
And if you made it this far, you probably know that I would personally spend my $1 million boat money on this Hydrasports 53′ Suenos! It is one of the sweetest looking and best performing fishing boats I have ever laid my eyes on.
But even when I get all excited and show my wife videos like the HydraSports 53′ video tour above, she quickly reminds me of the wise words my dad told me about boats…
- “Make sure you become best friends with someone that has a nice boat”
- “If you have to ask how much it costs to dock and fuel it, then you can’t afford it…”
Hope you enjoyed this center console fishing boat post, and make sure to take the $1 Million Boat Poll above.
