About our Charter Boat

ANDROSOur 23 foot Andros is the ultimate bay boat perfect for inshore and nearshore fishing. The classic panga hull design is ideal for fishing the shallow flats for snook or for hooking a redfish in a foot of water. If you thirst for adventure, the 200 hsp Evinrude E-TEC engine can easily run us out to one of the nearshore reefs to catch grouper, snapper and permit. The Andros gives you a smooth, dry ride and its unique design makes it one of the most versatile boats on the water.

The center console design features a roomy bow with fits for up to 6 people comfortably. Our boat has a spacious stern with two live wells. It is rigged with top of the line equipment including a Garman GPS fish locator, Minn Kota trolling motor, marine radio with am/fm stereo, cell phone and U.S. Coast Guard approved safety equipment.
