Desco Marine Adds Three New Fiberglass Hulls To Line of Fishing Boats

Desco Marine announced today the addition of three new multipurpose fiberglass hulls to their existing lines of commercial fishing boats.

According to Desco vice president Emerson Shank, Desco purchased the molds from Robert McCoy of Jacksonville and will offer the boats rigged for either commercial or sport fishing. The hull sizes include a 29, 37 and 46 foot size that can be used for long-lining, gillnetting, bottom fishing, snapper/grouper, sport and charter fishing.

The molds were first used by Sermon's Boat Yard of Tarpon Springs, Fla. where they developed a reputation for quality with fishermen in the Southeastern Coastal United States.

Desco will equip these boats with single or twin screws and plans to develop a police or military patrol boat where there is a need for speed.

In addition to the Sermon FRP molds, Desco has added three larger fiberglass hulls with a 60-, 65-, and larger 90-foot hull with extra room for various types of onboard processing equipment. These new Desco planing hulls were designed for use as charter boats, party boats, or dive boats in lengths varying from 50 to 65 feet. The 65-foot hull can also be used in crewboat work or military patrol where speeds of 35-40 knots are required.

Desco Marine, Inc. is a modern shipbuilding and repair facility located in St. Augustine, Fla. Desco's capabilities include steel boats up to 200 feet, fiberglass boats from 29 to 90 feet and wood boats to 73 feet.
