Our Story

The Boat

Charisma is a 2001, 38 ft Custom Stolper Express boat built in Stuart Florida. It is powered by twin 370hp Cummins engines and has been recently fitted with a custom tuna tower.

The Charisma was built with one thing in mind, FISHING! The Charisma is one of the fastest charter boats in the Keys allowing you with less travel time and more fishing time. Recently refurbished in late 2012, it is equipped with the latest in marine electronics and safety equipment.

Charisma has a large seating area that is covered by a custom hard top and three-sided Eisenglass to provide plenty of shade from the sun and the occasional South Florida shower. The spacious cabin has a large fully enclosed, clean head for privacy, as well as air conditioning to cool down on those hot summer days.

The express layout keeps you in the fishing action with plenty of room for everyone, while the tuna tower is a great place to be to spot the fish. Charisma is geared with custom made rods; all fitted with Daiwa, Penn, and Shimano reels.
