The local Cervantes fleet is a remarkable sight to behold. You would be hard pressed to find a better looking, more modern, fast and efficient fleet such as this.

The image above shows the ten boats Fine Line, Body Line, Punch Line, Custom Line, Main Line, Out A Line, On Line, Blood Line, Production Line and Front Line, all part of the permanent Cervantes fleet. Some of these boats have now been sold and replaced by even newer vessels - Full On, Full Throttle, Bad Influence and Loose Cannon.

Fishing Community
