This just released Montague 1536 is the first of the new line of USCG inspected vessels designed and built by ACI Boats for the charter market. Her raised pilot house design, aggressive forward leaning helm windows and aluminum hull present an image that will instill confidence your guests decision to choose you as the guide for their next adventure. Cory Armstrong has envisioned his Alaska line of aluminum boats to combine the practicality of commercial boats with the comfort of recreational designs. The Montague Version is built Alaskan tough and is as rugged as the waters it is designed to conquer. The result is an irresistible blending of power, comfort, durability and value. The hand built process provides flexibility of configurations to meet the specific needs of each individual owner.
The raised pilot house offers her captain a commanding view of the surrounding waters. An air-ride helm seat reduces the skipper s fatigue and a port side bench seat provides a comfortable and convenient location for crew. The sliding doors both port and starboard allow quick access to either side of the boat without negotiating your way through a cabin full of guests milling about when coming into port. The main salon has been designed for your guests comfort. She presents a quality finished interior accented with light headliner and polished teak accents. Your 12 guests will enjoy a comfortable transit to the fishing areas on Bentley shock absorbing seats while conversing across tables cleverly designed with built in cup holders. Forced air diesel heat and plenty of ventilation adds to guest comfort. For their personal needs, the well ventilated head is equipped with sink, mirror and a fresh water flush to keep head odors at bay.
The enormous aft deck is fully outfitted for charter fishing with rod holders, bait lockers, a full width insulated fish hold, prewired electric down riggers mounts, a fish cleaning station and salt water wash down to clean up. Easy boarding access is available from the swim platform through the stern entry door. Forward, a custom built hydraulic drum winch will effortlessly manage the most difficult ground tackle package. For safety she is equipped with nonslip floors, sturdy safety rails and strategically placed handholds throughout. She is USCG stability tested for open waters and is equipped with a complete USCG Safety package, including a 16-person life raft.
Twin D6 330 Volvos turbo charged engines with Duoprop Drive will drive you and your guests through the surf at a cruising speed of 28 knots, allowing you more time to fish and less time on transit. Supported by 400 gallons of fuel you will have a charter range of 300NM. The fly by wire system is just another example of the quality features built in this new line of boats.
Her professional electronics package is built around the versatility of the simple to use dual screen Garmin GPS and radar components.
