Lighten Up Charter BoatLighten Up Charter Boat
The Lighten Up charter boat is a 26 ft diesel center console with a tower which provides plenty of room to walk around to fish or enjoy the view the water. The tower enables the captain to sight fish and to control the boat from the top. The weight of the heavy inboard diesel engine provides stability and a smoother ride in the water.

The center tower maximizes the search. Captain Doug sits atop the tower to scan the waters for activity such as Bonita crashing bait, Cobia, Spanish Mackerel blitzing, Tarpon rolling, and bait balls. During the Cobia run this tower provides a much needed height advantage to spot fish as they migrate.
