About The Desperado

The Desperado is a 56' Taylor Made boat built with a large fishing platform with ample room in the cockpit and salon areas. Powered by a C-30 CAT rated at 1550HP, she cruises at an easy 26 knots, to get you to the fish quickly, and has a top end of 33 knots. She is outfitted with the latest fishing tackle and electronics, including Furuno Omni CSH8LMK2 8L Sonar technology.

The Desperado's 2023 improvements include:
  • New Furuno Omni Directional Sonar quickly detects schools of fish or individual fish as well as changing water conditions. This technology allows the Captain to make the best decisions on where and how deep to fish. This increases the chances of locating and catching fish, thus enhancing the charter guests complete fishing experience.
  • Rebuilt C30 Cat Engine
  • New Twin Disc QuickShift gear
  • New 12KW Northern Lights Generator
