Captain Ron’s Boat

About the Boat
Captain Ron’s boat is a new 2021 25′ CHawk Center Console, at 9′ 6″ wide, you won’t be crowded on this boat. Plenty of seating, storage and fishing room for 6. Powered by a 2021 Suzuki 300 HP, this powerful 4 stroke motor is quick and quiet. The CHawk modified hull design is perfect getting offshore to the deep water and back with a comfortable dry ride yet able to get into the creeks and back waters for those not wanting to brave the ocean currents.

Equipped with a 12 GPS Map XSV down & side sonar and a 36 volt Minn Kota I Pilot, finding the fish and staying on them is what this system is designed for. This vessel is also equipped with an Emergency Satellite Locator Beacon and a VHS 2-way radio and all of the personal protective gear required by the US Coast Guard.
