Captain Sheriff's Fishing Charters operates out of a custom re-designed 32 Seacraft with twin 300 HP Mercury Verados. The cut out style transom with splash well has been modified by professional marine fabricators in South Florida familiar with this popular center console hull. The custom fabrication process included raising the level of the engine mounting cutout portion of the transom to the top of the existing transom, installing a live-well in place of the existing splash well and a custom designed aluminum twin engine bracket installed to provide additional safety in the event of high seas while increasing overall performance and fuel efficiency. In addition, there are 3 live wells available for keeping bait fresh.
Fish On II cruises at approximately 32 -34 knots with top speed at 50 knots.
This cruise speed of Fish On II is approximately 2 to 3 times faster than most of the New England style charter boats in the industry.
As we say in the industry. “Do you want to fish, or cut bait.”
The vessel is equipped with the latest Garmin fish-finding capabilities, chartplotters and high definition radar technology.
