Coolest Kids On The Block
Yellowfin Yachts has been the flag we fly as our boat builder of choice since 2007. This is our second large center console from Yellowfin Yachts and our largest to date. Our 32 ft Yellowfin was a great boat but the 36 ft center console is the icing on the cake and the perfect Key West Fishing boat.
Powered by only Mercury Marine our 36 Ft Yellowfin has three of the new 350 Mercury Verados. Smooth, efficient, reliable and very powerful. The Mercury Verado has changed the world of marine outboard power and certainly set the bar for the rest.
Our 36 Ft Yellowfin is so versatile. Every day we leave the dock we are fully prepared for anything our clients or mother nature will want from us in a day of fishing, boating or whatever we do on the water. With a super dry ride in the sloppiest of conditions. Speed and agility to grace across the waves to the long distance fishing grounds quick and smooth. A small port a potty in an enclosed compartment for those that need it. A full compliment of snorkeling gear and a custom built ladder to get in and out of the water with ease. An incredible compliment of fishing gear to handle the toughest battles or to test our anglers against big fish with super light tackle. Its all right here in one incredible platform.
With a full array of GARMIN Marine Electronics the fish wont stand a chance and we get a leg up on mother nature.
The GARMIN GSD 26 sonar on our 36 Yellowfin is top of the line. 3000 watts of sending power to illustrate on the twin 16 inch LED Flat screen monitors the slightest break, fish targets and bottom features at depths up to 5000 ft. When we are bottom fishing this means we can actually have you drop on a targeted fish.
A radar that brings the advantage back to us with ability to not only see surface targets for safety but also to see birds at a distance of 7 miles clearly. Out in the deep sea fishing this means fish. Out in the Gulf this means shrimp boats being followed by tunas - More fish. For you as our client, this means more advantage for fishing and safety for you to enjoy.
The SIRIUS captains package is installed in our 36 Yellowfin. That means as a client you have piece of mind to know we are not going to take you into bad weather. Full Doppler up to the minute radar to see whats out there that might be bad.
For entertainment the "Too Intense" has GARMINS Fusion radio link coupled with the incredible marine stereo from JL Marine Audio. Crisp clear and loud if you want makes this boat quite the hit at the sand bar parties.
Auto Pilot is not much of an advantage for our clients on the water but as a captain it sure takes the heat off of us on long runs to the fishing grounds. GARMIN has an amazing auto pilot that is so easy to use its a shame not to use it. Keeping our boat on coarse and saving fuel along the way so we can keep our costs down and pass along to our customers.
Having the ability to have Yellowfin Yachts custom build our boats has really given us a huge advantage over our competitors. Our boats fit us and our clients to a T. Rod holders everywhere you would expect them to be. Drink holders in 6 locations and some are even rod holders too. Two giant YETI Coolers for drinks and fish box as well as coolers below decks to keep even more fish cold if need be. Storage that keeps the things your not using out of the way till you decide you need it and its readily accessible. Seating that is perfect for long runs yet not in the way when we fish. visibility for the shortest and the tallest in the group. Fish ability that is not rivaled by any center console on the market. There is not another charter boat in Key West with the number of qualities this boat has.
The Mercury 350 Verados are equipped with super chargers loading them with torque. These three motors have no issue throwing the 36 ft boat around like a rag doll. Fast enough to out run bad weather and enough torque at low end to slug it out with mountainous seas if we get caught in it. The top speed on the "Too Intense" is about 69 mph empty and about 66 loaded to fish. Our cruising speed is 40 - 43 with a constant fuel economy around 1.65 mpg at cruise. We couldn't be happier with these numbers and our clients should like them as well. Good fuel economy is how we keep our prices low for our clients.
We use our 36 ft Yellowfin for all sorts of missions in our charter company here at Dream Catcher Charters. Mainly we use it for anything that is offshore for wrecks, reef, deep sea and long range Marquesas Keys and Dry Tortugas fishing charters.
