The Boat

26 foot Mako

Destin Florida Sport Fishing does not own a fleet of boats. Just the same one that has been meticulously maintained for years. The "Sea Reaper" is a custom restored 26 foot center console Mako with a completely foam filled hull for ultimate safety and designed with fishing in mind. It has more square foot fishing space than many boats twice its size. This space allows for maximum comfort while its stability and low freeboard allows for easier management of large game fish.

With a beam of 8 feet, a draft of 18 inches, and 360 degrees of fishability the Sea Reaper has all the benefits of a backwater flats boat without sacrificing comfort, spaciousness, and safety for offshore fishing 35 miles out.

The Sea Reaper is not the fastest, biggest or most luxurious boat on the water. It doesn't have an air-conditioned salon with a microwave or flat screen TV. There is no stereo, X-box, or Nintendo on board. This fishing boat was designed with ONE thing in mind:


26 Foot Mako Fully Restored

The vessel is a 1980, 26 Mako refinished in 2015, with everything completely rebuilt and redone with safety and dependability in mind. This refit included all new electrical wire, terminals, and associated fittings, and devices. All new plumbing including hoses, pumps, and clamps. Basically, everything was made new including a complete hardware refit and both engines rebuilt with the safty and dependability for the customer in mind.


The vessel is equipped with state of the art dual electronics for navigation and fishfinding in deep water and extreme conditions. Having dual electronics means your trip won't be cancelled 20 miles from shore for a device failure.

Night Fishing

The entire boat has been completely lighted for night fishing. As anyone knows when fishing at night every task is more difficult, from baiting hooks to tying hooks, netting fish to gaffing fish etc. But night time also provides some excellent opportunities to catch fish as well as provide welcomed relief from the summer heat. Night fishing for Sharks, Red Drum, Speckled Trout, and Flounder is easy with abundant cooler space, large seats, and plenty of light including the illuminated bait wells.
