Pathfinder 2200 Bay Boat

The newest addition to the fleet is the 2200 Pathfinder from Maverick. I am very excited about this new vessel. Now, not only can you get out on the water in comfort and style, but we have the ability to fish offshore, gulf wrecks and deep into the shallow waters of the Everglades National Park. The Pathfinder is powered the reliable 250 Suzuki four-stroke engine that is so quite, you’ll hardly know it’s on. This bay boat is fully loaded with a large livewell, lots of dry storage and plenty of seating for the whole family. We can also use the 109 pound thrust electric motor to sneak up on tailing redfish, permit and tarpon with the added ability to stop silently with the shallow water anchor, the Power Pole XL. The possibilities abound with this new ride. The best part is the rates stay the same. So if you’re interested in getting out on a charter on either the Pathfinder or site fishing the flats on one of my Hells Bay skiffs, give me a call at 305-393-3474 or email me at
