The “Broad Minded” is a 2016 37′ Freeman Boatworks powered by twin 350 yamaha outboards. Capt. Nick Stanczyk wanted more fishing time and less travel time, so with a 30+ knot cruise you’ll be fishing in no time! It’s a catamaran center console, so either you can use stand up tackle to hand crank fish, hand crank fish out of the rod holder, or use an electric reel in the rod holder. For seating there is a coffin box, a co captains chair, and multiple bean bags. There is a small head inside the console for the ladies as well. A swordfish trip on the Broad Minded is $2400.
