Great Rental Boat for Duck Key, Marathon & Key Colony Divers, Anglers, and Large Groups
This rental boat is perfect for diving or fishing the local waters of Marathon, including the nearby Hawks Cay and Duck Key, and Key Colony as well. Because of its size and the added security of twin motors, it is the boat we rent most often for larger groups who want to go offshore. It’s well-equipped for both diving and fishing, but of course it’s perfect for any on-the-water activity you and your guests want to enjoy, especially if room or speed are what you want.
Fast w/ Twin Motors
This a decommissioned Ft Lauderdale Police boat with twin 225 Yamahas. (AKA 26’ Boston Whaler 2000 Commercial Lay-up or The 26 Twin.) The 26 Twin has four stroke 225 Yamahas, with plenty of speed to get you where you want fast, and a nice fuel efficient cruise at 30 mph to take you far out to the Marathon Humps and back with the least amount of fuel burn.
Perfect Boat for Diving
The 26 Twin rental boat has the optional dive door package which makes it a favorite for large parties of divers, there is plenty of seating throughout the boat and a Coast Guard capacity of 14 although we only recommend 10 passengers for the maximum limit.
Also a Perfect Boat for Fishing
Whaler console, with Large double ring custom t-top with 6 rod holders from All-Design offers plenty of shade protection. All-Design is one of the best fabricators in the Keys, this is another one of his premier designs, the top is a little different than your normal top, and it includes great offset rod holders, and outrigger mounts for offshore enjoyment. There is a large livewell built in to where the Police AR15 rack was located with thru-hull fresh water that can keep your bait in perfect shape.
Great for Offshore Boating
This rental boat has a 200 gallon commercial fuel tank which gives it more fuel capacity than most other rental boats this size. That means you can go where the fish are and fish for miles without re-fueling being the first thing on your mind. As mentioned, this boat’s twin motors give you extra peace of mind when heading offshore and out of sight of land.
Equipped for Everyday Keys Boating, Too.
The Keys are unique as a boating destination in that there are a lot of shallow water areas. Some you’ll want to visit (sandbars), and others you’ll want to avoid (flats and patch reefs). Whether you are taking the boat out of Marathon, Duck Key, or Key Colony, there are numerous places where you can get into trouble if you are not alert. Trust us, running aground and being stuck is the last thing you want to do with your vacation boating time. That’s not something you have to worry about with this rental boat’s 10 inch color Garmin 2010c with Southeast Florida charts, which make navigation as easy as pie. With the Color Garmin GPS, White is over 6ft depth, blue is under 6 ft depth, if you run aground with this set up you are not paying attention. Plus, there’s a full Garmin Sounder Hookup for the Garmin.
Whether you like to listen to music while you fish, or you want to take this rental boat cruising, you’ll enjoy the Infinity waterproof stereo. It has bluetooth for easy wireless hookup to all smart devices. Side mounted water proof JL audio speakers add to your enjoyment when you are out on the water.
The Bottom Line
If you want a boat that can carry a lot of people, or just a great looking stable platform to dive or fish off, the 26 twin is one of the best rental boats that you will find in our area.
