The Hooker

"The Hooker" is a fifty-foot custom Carolina boat built by Billy Holton. In 2008 extensive improvements were made to the boat. The engine room had a major makeover and she was re-powered with a new 1150 horsepower Caterpillar C 18 Acert engine. She comes equipped with heating to keep you warm during those winter months of tuna and striper fishing and air conditioning to keep you cool during the hot days of summer. The salon also hosts a microwave and a stereo with a compact disc player. She comes fully rigged with the latest in electronics and all the tackle you'll need for a great day of gulf stream fishing.
