Built in 1978 by Delta Marine Industries, the Perseverance is 50′ long x 15’7″ wide and is a USCG Documented Vessel, (inspected by the USCG yearly for safety and integrity of the hull). Delta Marine Industries has long been the standard to which the larger charter vessels are compared.
When this vessel was built in 1978, fiberglass was cheaper, hence the hull thickness of 1″ fiberglass. Newer vessels have a foam core encased in fiberglass and while lighter, does not give as smooth of a ride as the heavier vessels.
Our vessels are extremely well maintained. We dry dock every year to upgrade our systems, repaint the decks and do interior maintenance. We are the only charter company with year-round employees who perform the maintenance. Most companies do a splash and dash and hope to get thru the season. We plan our maintenance schedule to eliminate the hopes of getting thru the season. Our captains are the first on the water (April) and the last off (Late Sept).
