Our fishing boat is an offshore-worthy vessel. We can carry up to 280 gallons of fuel, giving us a range of more than 500 miles. We also have up-to-date electronics made by Garmin, including: VHF communications system, depth finder, charts, radar, and auto pilot, and we will not leave the dock without our Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EBIRP). We also carry a Delorme In-reach (satellite texting capability).
The boat is also fully rigged with outriggers and mounted teasers. The Marlin Hunter is permitted by NMFS (National Marine Fisheries Service) to target pelagic and reef fish. We can participate in the charter boat portion of the recreational quota for snapper. 2015 saw us have 45 days in federal waters going out from Pensacola Beach. This boat is a proven fish raiser; we have caught and released billfish off her already. It is great for a run to the rigs, as we have made runs of over 100 miles and have plenty of fuel when we return to the dock.
