Captain: Mitch McFrederick
The Patriot is a 55-foot Custom Carolina Sportfish built right here in Dare county by legendary boat builder Paul Mann. This Carolina designed hull is powered with a 1000hp Caterpillar diesel engine which provides the boat with a comfortable 25 knot cruise. The boat has been meticulously maintained and constantly upgraded to provide customers with the ideal fishing platform!
The Patriot is a true fishing machine designed specifically for charter fishing. The boat has a huge cockpit outfitted with 3 fighting chairs, a green stick, and oversized transom fish box to ensure we can properly transport large catches of fish.
The interior has an open layout with plenty of room for our guests. We have 2 air conditioning units which keep the salon at a very comfortable temperature during those hot summer days. We have a spacious bathroom that is meticulously cleaned and maintained daily. The Patriot provides guest with very comfortable accommodations when you’re not on deck fighting fish or hiding from the elements.
