Captain Sheriff's Fishing Charters operates two vessels depending on the sea conditions and the type of charter booked. Fish On is a custom designed 2002, (29) foot center console Deep V hull manufactured by Sea Vee boats in Miami, Fl. The vessel was recently repowered by reliable twin 225HP Mercury Optimax outboards and is very popular with anglers in the Southern States and SKA (Southern Kingfish Association) fishing circuit. Its popularity is due to its fishability, smooth ride, speed and safety.
The Sea Vee vessel was selected for Captain Sheriff's Fishing Charters because it allows one to fish 360 degrees, without obstruction, other than the outboard lower units. In addition, the ability to cruise at 34 knots and a top end speed of 52 knots means that charter guests have can enjoy more time fishing since traditional offshore fishing boats cruise at 15-20 knots.
As we say in the industry. “Do you want to fish, or cut bait.”
The dual outboard feature enhances safety in addition to being able to cruise at 18 knots on one motor, if necessary aboard Fish On. Both vessels are equipped with the latest Garmin fish-finding capabilities, chartplotters and high definition radar technology.
Fish On II is a 2000, 32 Seacraft recently repowered with twin 300 HP Mercury Verado’.s, This vessel is a recent addition to Captain Sheriff’s Fishing Charters which provides more comfort in offshore fishing conditions and can cruise efficiently at 30 -35 knots.
