Peace of mind can be a huge advantage for any captain working, competing or recreating on any water. You’re always worried about keeping your crew safe, be it your patrons or your mate. With ABS Garmin navigational equipment... the accuracy of the chartplotter, amazing detail from the radar, the autopilot and the thermal camera... you get to put those concerns a little further back in your mind and you can primarily target your fishing.

The beauty of my recently purchased boat from ABS boat lies in its ability to reach distant fishing spots quickly and return home the same day. So you’ll probably want to run well above the 33 mph, up toward 55 or 60 mph.
If the prospect of such trips keeps you up at night with nervous excitement, perhaps you need to think seriously about visiting ABS for your next boating experience.
