Fish With Me Charter Boat

Built in 2006 by Sculley Boat Builders in Wanchese, North Carolina, Fish With Me is a 54-foot custom design Tournament Edition Sport Fisherman with a copious wide 17-foot beam. What makes Fish With Me special is her lineage coming from the “Classic Carolina” hull design developed and refined on the Cape Hatteras Bar, a region legendary for weather conditions that can turn very unfavorable in an instant. When it comes to serious blue water fishing 30 to 40 miles offshore, seaworthiness and durability is just as essential as the ability to deliver a stable ride.

Fortunately for us, weather and sea conditions here in West Palm Beach, Florida are far more pleasant than the Cape, even on the worst days, Fish With Me’s ride can still be quite pleasurable. But should you desire to call it a day early to go back to the dock, the Fish With Me’s twin 1,200-hp MTU 8V2000 diesels delivering a cruise speed of 30 knots with a top end of 40 knots will get you back in a timely fashion.

Well matched to this power plant, Fish With Me is equipped with some of the best, top of the line electronics money can buy from 2 complete Faruno Radar/GPS/Chart Plotter/Fishfinder NavNet systems and a Faruno digital depth finder, with ocean temperature gauge.

The helm is also equipped with auto Pilot, 2 VHF radios, along with all the best, up to date safety equipment including enough Coast Guard approved PFD’s for 12 adults and 12 children. When it comes the safety it is as important as comfort of our clients.

Inside

Fish With Me is more than just a day boat. She can be a floating retreat for days on end in places like the Bahamas.

From the day we took delivery of our boat back in 2006, the Fish With Me has been kept in that same top running condition as the day we got her. In addition to her classic running lines, a feature characteristic to large convertible sport fishing boats is comfort and living space.

Inside our roomy enclosed main salon, the living area features a wrap around couch, big screen TV, Bose surround sound stereo system. The Salon also features a fully equipped galley (kitchen) with two Sub Zero Refrigerators and freezers, 4 burner stove top, microwave oven, toaster, coffee maker. All of which, along with the on-board air-conditioner, is powered by an own 15 kw gen set when we are not on the dock with shore power. Plus, we also have our own onboard water maker for both safe drinking water and showering.

Overnighting or a long weekend, Fish Me With can comfortably sleep 4 to 6 guests along with her two man crew between three staterooms below deck and pull out coach in the salon.

Below deck guest accommodations are split between the guest stateroom forward with a queen size bed and an additional bunk above, master stateroom with a queen size berth to port each with their own elegant touch of luxury set with finished teak and designer fabrics. Fish With Me’s guest accommodations also include two head facilities with enclosed showers – one adjoined to both the master and guest staterooms for added privacy with the second across the hall for more general access next to the crew cabin featuring a standard bunk bed arrangement to starboard.
