With a 700 gallon fuel tank, an optional 200 gallon fuel bladder, a 100 gallon freshwater tank, a 15 KW generator, a watermaker, an icemaker, two air conditioning units, two bathrooms, four beds, a galley including a microwave, and two TV’s complete with Bose surround sound in the Salon, Mo Azul has the capacity to provide you with all the familiar comforts of home while fishing anywhere from 30-100 miles offshore. (Just don’t forget to bring your favorite DVD’s).
A large part of offshore fishing today is reliant on modern technology. The flybridge of Mo Azul is installed with the latest electronics including a Raymarine E-120 series GPS/Chartplotter/Radar including Sirius Satellite Weather Updates, Raymarine Autopilot, Furuno FCV1100 Bottom Machine with an Airmar 3-KW in hull transducer, a Garmin 3210-C backup GPS and a previously unveiled FCV-POS 1100 Backup Bottom finder.
As was previously mentioned, the cockpit aboard Mo Azul has 136 square feet. That is more than enough room for you and five of your friends to comfortably enjoy dropping to the bottom for snapper, drifting for kingfish and sharks, chunking for tuna, or trolling for the ever illusive billfish. The boat is also equipped with Rupp Outriggers and a beautiful solid teak Release fighting chair allowing for up to seven lines trolled lines for those with a refined taste for a day spent trolling.
Mo Azul is equipped with all the required USCG life preservers plus a few extras including a life raft, an Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB see link below), a satellite phone, and a ditch bag including a handheld GPS and floating, waterproof, VHF radio. The above items are those you hope you never need, but should definitely have in the event of an emergency on the water.
In all, it is safe to say that if it comes on a sport fishing vessel, Mo Azul has it. Everything you need for that comfortable, enjoyable, memorable day spent offshore of Port Aransas, in the infamous
