Families Love The Distraction Charter Boat

We would like to introduce you to the charter boat Distraction. She is a 1962 model – 41′ Hatteras and is in immaculate shape for her age.  She was completely retro-fitted and updated in 2002 and again in 2016.  She is made out of fiberglass and she is well maintained, odor free and very safe.   We keep her at the Orange Beach Marina and we spare no expense when it comes to routine maintenance or safety.

Reinvesting In Our Charter Boat Was The Right Thing To Do

After 14 years of excellent service, during the winter of 2016, we decided to pull her out of the water and give her a new life (again).  We took everything electrical and mechanical out of her so we could start fresh.  We sent her two Caterpillar 3126ta-350 hp engines off to the factory to be re-manufactured.  There was nothing wrong with them and they were running great, but they did have 14 years and 14,000 hours on them.  Coming from the aviation and trucking industry, I know the importance of timed or scheduled long term maintenance.

After a couple of months, we got the engines back and put them in service March 2, 2016 and they are performing flawlessly, just as expected when you do things the right way.  During this period, we purchased a new 8kw Phasor marine generator as well as new 4 blade Michigan wheel DQX propellers that are 30% more more efficient than our previous set.  We also renovated our restroom,  purchased a new fresh water Marine toilet, added new windows, painted, rewired and even added new plumbing fixtures .  We also ordered new Marine Tuft teak and holly carpet from Australia to put down as flooring in the kitchen, v-berth and bedroom.

After 3 1/2 months of hard work, she is now ready for your family’s enjoyment and hopefully another 13 years of excellent service.  She has classic lines and has a personality of her own.  Her hull is bulletproof and her finish is nice.  She’s a charter boat, not a yacht.  you can relax on this boat and you wont hurt a thing.  This is one smooth riding, reliable and safe fishing machine.

Inside The Charter Boat Cabin

The air conditioned main sitting area where everyone sits while relaxing on the ride to and from the fishing grounds.

The inside of our charter boat offers all the comfort of home with a climate controlled cabin. She has a clean odor-free, private restroom for those who expect the best. She has a kitchen and a microwave on board. Our refrigerator is compact so we encourage you to always bring your own cooler full of your favorite beverages and food. If you don’t have a cooler, that’s not a problem. We always have a big cooler on the back deck filled with ice and water that you are welcome too.

The Outside Sitting and Fishing Area

Everyone loves our comfortable sitting and fishing area on the rear deck. There is plenty of room to fish, relax and enjoy some breathtaking sights.

The outside sitting area is large and comfortable. We designed it for families that want to be comfortable while riding and fishing. We have two comfortable seats, drink holders and rod holders so you don’t have to worry where to sit your pole when we move to the next fishing reef.
