The Conch 27

Captain Pepe’s Conch 27 is the best ride you’ll find on either side of the Keys. On it, passengers experience a dry, gentle cruise with power enough to get them out on the water quickly and the reliability they need to trust they’ll return to shore safely.

Fishermen and outdoor adventurers in general both know that it’s all about high-quality equipment. This is true whether you’re braving the forest, the mountains, or even the Arctic Circle, but gear is especially crucial in the ocean’s unforgiving environment. Captain Pepe knows this better than anyone.

That’s why he works only with the latest in marine technology, from Conch 27’s sleek hull to its Furuno Navnet radar and tackle; every last detail is taken care of to ensure your safety, comfort, and enjoyment out on the water. On the Conch 27, you’re in good hands with Captain Pepe, the latest technology, and the best light tackle from Penn, Berkley, and Shakespeare.
