Say Hello To Our Marathon Charter Fishing Boat
This is a custom built 23′ center console powered by a 200 HP Evinrude E-TEC. It’s fully equipped with top of the line Simrad touchscreen electronics, large baitwells, Yeti Cooler, Power Pole, and 18 rod holders. This Marathon fishing boat can effectively fish on the flats as well as hit the patch reefs. It only drafts about a foot of water but handles like larger offshore fishing boats almost twice it’s size.
This boat can comfortably handle 4 anglers plus the captain. We can even stretch it to 6 anglers but don’t recommend it because we want to make sure everyone in comfortable as well as able to catch fish. It has plenty of dry storage for anything you might bring. The Yeti cooler lives up to all the marketing hype and hold ice for days. If you choose to keep your catch this boat is equipped with 2 iced down fish boxes in the floor that will hold way more than you would ever need. The spacious dry ride of this boat is what keeps our customers coming back time after time.
This is the view from the tower looking down on the very large forward deck. This gives our anglers a wide area to fight their catch of a lifetime. In the floor you can see a separate anchor locker for over 300 feet of anchor line. There are also 3 separate floor compartments that provide dry storage for customers carry on items as well as fishing tackle storage.
Some of our Tarpon fishing trips do last into the night which is why we have plenty of deck lighting, live well lighting, and even underwater led lights on the transom of the boat. These lights are all low voltage led lighting which last longer than conventional lights and will not drain the batteries. The boat is also equipped with all the Coast Guard approved navigational lighting which ensures a safe voyage for all of our fishing charter clients trips.
Our Marathon Charter fishing boat is equipped with 18 rod holders which is plenty for any voyage. Most carry a minimum of 8 light tackle spinning rods for even our most basic fishing trip. Sometimes we will carry a few really big conventional reels for our wreck fishing charters wishing to catch monster Goliath Grouper. These reels are loaded with 200 lb. mono filament which seems to be the only way to get up these 200 + lb. monster fish.
