The ‘Pescadora’ is a well-equipped 41’ Ronin fishing yacht, which comes powered by twin 610HP MAN engines and is equipped with Garmin, Furuno and Simrad navigational equipment. It provides ample space for up to eight guests to tackle various big beasts, and to add to the excitement, is fitted with a Murray Brothers fighting chair with rocket launchers, Rupp triple spreader aluminum outriggers and center rigger, downriggers, Miya Enoch electric teaser reels, tuna tubes, and livewell.

Their 9-hour and multi-day offshore trips include quality fishing gear, live bait, lures, catch cleaning and packaging, as well as refreshments, local beer, fresh fruit, and lunch.
