2002 Glacier Bay Renegade
The Glacier Bay Catamaran Hull is a Proven, Strong, Seaworthy Hull with exceptional performance running in choppy seas. This boat presents a wide, stable fishing cockpit which can handle 4-5 fishermen comfortably. The twin, 2015, 150 hp Suzuki's, are very fuel efficient. Cruising speed is 26-28 knots at 4600 to 4800 rpm, top end is 34 Knots at 5500 rpm. The engines only have 400 hours on them and they are still under warranty. The engines have been mechanic maintained and run perfectly. On a typical offshore fishing day in the Gulf of Mexico, off Texas, we would run 40 miles out to "the rocks" and troll for 6-8 hours and then run 40 miles back. The average fuel consumption was 80-90 gallons TOTAL for both engines, about one-half of the 180 gallon capacity onboard in the two separate 90 gallon tanks. At trolling speed, the combined sound of this boat hull and engines Raises Fish!! This rig is Fully Equipped for Offshore Trolling, Bay-Fishing and Family Cruising. The split-windshield design presents a large shaded area under the hardtop with a comfortable L-shaped settee and enclosed head on the port side. The helm station is to starboard with a comfortable captains chair and adjustable steering wheel. Instrumentation includes: Garmin GPS Chartplotter/Sonar w/sidescan sonar; VHF Radio; Dual Tachometers, fuel gauges and ignition switches; Compass; Remote Anchor Windlass switch; Multi-Switch/Fuse Panel for Navigation Lights, Horn, Bilge Pumps(4) and Fresh water pump. A Bluetooth/Satellite/CD capable stereo radio combined with four speakers provides excellent sound. The entire area under the large hardtop has new, clear isenglass enclosures which allow for comfortable running in any weather. The clear panels roll up or easily detach for hot weather days allowing breeze in the shaded area. A large cabinet/console, with a sink/freshwater faucet(20 gal tank) partially separates the helm/settee area from the fishing cockpit. This console has plenty of storage inside for fishing gear, cleaning supplies, toolbox, etc. The hardtop mounted 6-rod rocket launcher along with 4 gunwale mounted rod holders, plus 2 rod holders mounted on the rear stanchions allow for plenty of rod storage and rod positioning for trolling versatility. The two, hardtop mounted trolling outriggers, swivel out easily to provide a wide spread to the baits and also, the ability to run teasers. A spread of five trolling baits plus two teasers can be easily pulled behind the boat. Under the gunwales, there are racks which hold gaffs, nets, scrub brush, rods, etc. Live-bait are kept all day in a large 96-quart cooler/aerator set in an alcove in the middle of the transom. A cabinet in the transom has four trays for storage of lures, bottom rigs, extra hooks, weights, and swivels, etc. Two cutting boards are mounted, one on each side of the transom, for easy bait prep. The boat has three large fish boxes which can hold fish up to six feet long. Furthermore, two six-foot long, insulated fish bags keep the catches iced-down all day. Fishing tackle includes: Five heavy-duty, 6' Cyclone trolling rods, each equipped with a Gold, Penn International V, 30 VSW, two-speed reel, with 40# test line and 100# test wind-on leaders. Two Shimano Trevala jigging rods with Shimano Saragosa 8000 spinning reels. Plus one Ugly Stick rod with a Shimano Torium baitcast reel. Also included are: a tackle box loaded with trolling lures and equipment, two gaffs and a large net. A large swim/boarding platform, with stanchions and a folding ladder, is set between the two engines. This provides a stable platform for swimming or scuba diving. On the bow, a 26 lb Danforth anchor is mounted on a pulpit which extends outside of the bowrail between the two hulls. This anchor, with six feet of chain and two-hundred feet of line, is combined with an electric windlass, which is remotely operated from the helm, to facilitate easy anchoring and retrieval of the anchor. For family cruising, the shaded four-person settee plus plenty of cushioned seating in the open bow and stern areas provides plenty of comfort in or out of the sun, with good music for all. The marine head is in a small, private compartment and has an electric pump. There is a 20 gallon holding tank with another electric pump-out motor. The head compartment also has room for storage for lifejackets, etc. This 26' Glacier Bay has provided many terrific fishing days out on the cobalt blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. What is most important, is that, the boat shows no signs of stress cracks in the gelcoat or deterioration of the hull or the hardtop after years of usage. This boat is built like a battleship! It will continue to provide, to the new owner, years of fun fishing and cruising! Enjoy!!
