It's starting to feel like spring finally! As we all use these warm, sunny days to prepare for the upcoming season, I have very special announcement to make: Manolin Charters will have a new vessel for 2014 and for many years beyond! I am extremely proud to officially announce our new boat, the "Mary Jocelyn."
The Mary Jocelyn is a 2009 Parker 23 Special Edition Center Console. If you know anything about boats, you are certainly aware of the rugged, tough, no-nonsense design that have made Parker famous across the country. One of the premier fishing boats in the Northeast, Parker is a family owned company in the Carolinas that has been building quality fishing boats for years. The open layout, high end building materials, and smart design has made their 23 ft Special Edition a dream of mine for years.
This boat is a serious fishing machine and will be much loved by our guests in 2014 and for many, many years to come. It has all the bells and whistles (Check out the boat in full detail in "The Boat" section of the website) to accompany the hardcore anglers to the family with small kids. I am truly happy to have made this purchase and want you to share what I consider the BEST boat for our styles of fishing!
I will miss "Manolin" as we had a great 2 seasons with her. She was a great boat and suited my needs almost perfectly. We got a lot of blood on that deck and many a great memory. The opportunity arose for the "Mary Jocelyn", my dream boat, and I had to make it happen. We gain a lot of new features, 2 more feet, and a LOT more deck space. Not to mention radar, a livewell twice as big, swivel rod holders, Lowrance StructureScan and SonicHub, Porta Potti, and eisenglass enclosure with wings.
