The Boat

The Pez Machine is a 56′ Core Sound Custom Carolina sportfishing yacht designed by the famed Harkers Island builder, Jamie Chadwick. She boasts an enormous 230 square foot cockpit giving you plenty of room to fight trophy fish. She’s outfitted with state of the art electronics to make your fishing trip as productive and comfortable as possible. The cold-molded Carolina hull, featuring an exaggerated Carolina Flair, delivers an extremely soft and stable ride. Sea sickness is rarely an issue due to this stability on the water. The oversized insulated fish-boxes enable us to bring hundreds of pounds of ice guaranteeing that your catch returns to the dock in perfect condition!

Inside, the cabin comfortably sleeps six allowing you to be well rested for that fight of a lifetime. If you would like to relax in the salon, you will be able to watch Satellite television regardless of location! The interfaced electronics package gives passangers the oppurtunity to watch the fishfinder, chartplotter or radar on the television screen as well. This advanced technology lets you to sit on the leather couch in the salon and see what the captain sees on his electronics. The Sub Zero refrigerator and freezer will keep your food cold until you need to warm it up in the microwave or standard oven.

The Pez Machine is powered by two reliable Series 60 Detroit Diesels that push her at a comfortable cruise speed of 26 knots. These engines give her the range and the speed to quickly get you to the fish. Thanks to both the Carolina hull and the size of the vessel, this cruise speed can be achieved in nearly all fishable conditions!

The electronic package is redundant in just about every way possible and includes: Two 10.4 Furuno Navnet Displays, 72 nautical mile radar, a commercial grade fish finder, GPS, chartplotters ,two VHF radios, a Single Side Band radio, four 500W deck lights, two 250W underwater lights, two electric reel outlets, satellite television, satellite phone, Sirius satellite weather and radio.

The high powered lights allow us “to turn night into day” with the flip of a switch. Not only do the high powered deck lights let us see when its dark, they also serve to attract all sorts of baitfish which ultimately increases our chance for catching BIG fish!
