The Boat

The 31ft Tiara made locally in Holland, MI is a 1998. We are equipped with all the latest in electronics for navigation, safety, weather and fish finding equipment. Powered by 2 Chevy 454 engines this boat rides smooth even in some rough waters. Additionally, equipped with a large hardtop this vessel offers ample space and cool temperatures throughout the season.


Onboard the Fish On Charters you will notice how well the boat has been maintained and kept clean throughout its life spent entirely on Lake Michigan. From a clean galley to a daily washed head (bathroom) the boat is always kept fresh and clean for our passengers.
