Fishing Boat Details


picture

Maggie Joe: 53′ Custom sport fisher. Designed by Eddie and John De Rego, Maggie Joe was built for both long range and daily charters. The most important design elements are the cockpit (fishing deck) and the engine room.

John and Eddie wanted lots of room on the back deck for all to enjoy activities and not feel cramped. The result is the largest cockpit of any charter boat on Oahu. With a live well, tuna tubes, a huge brine box for the daily catch and an extra large ice hold, there is still plenty of room for a full size Murray Brothers fighting chair. Maggie Joe carries up to 25 passengers and has the largest fly bridge of any sport fisher on Oahu.

In the engine room, captains can walk around both engines with full access to all equipment. For safety, the boat has five water tight bulkheads and undergoes stringent USCG inspections. Both engines were overhauled and rebuilt in 2017.

Since her 1980 launch, annual maintenance, periodic dry dock and USCG inspections are performed. Maggie Joe has been rebuilt twice, in 1993 and again in 2003 adding a tuna tower. Maggie Joe is strong and stable, powered by twin 3306TA Cat diesels.  She also has a 15KW Generator, two 16,000 BTU air conditioners, a large comfortable cabin, full galley, and two showers.

Maggie Joe was one of the first sport fishers to transit the Pacific Ocean on her own bottom from the West coast arriving in Hawaii after 9 days and almost 2300 gallons fuel.

Equipment: Maggie Joe is equipped with 3 GPS chart plotters, a Furuno fish finder, Koden Fish finder and SSB and VHF radios. Fishing gear includes custom built Fenwick poles, and Shimano and Penn reels from 10lb test to 130 lb test.
