Powered by 2-375hp John Deere diesel engines, she cruises up to 15kt.

Very spacious, she offers several amenities you shouldn't go without.

  • 65' of full walk-around deck space, offering tons of much-desired elbowroom

  • Enough space for up to 30 passengers fishing at a time, or 49 for other events

  • Climate-controlled and air-conditioned cabin, to escape the elements

  • 2 onboard, clean, his-and-hers restrooms

These folks meant business! Congratulations to Alec Elmquist on his recent nuptials, and also for scoring a 65lb WAHOO!

That sucker was a great fight, landing in the boat with 5'1" of pure saltwater fury. Great job Alec!!!
