Our Boat – MAHELI HELI
Our boat, the Maheli Heli, is a brand new 2016 SeaHawk 36 custom from SeaHawk Industries of Sebring Fl. After 14 months of intense, attention to detail construction and rigging, she was christened in the pristine waters of off Kona HI. She is the first new excursion boat to the islands in many years. She has been out fitted with the only the best and up to date safety equipment, electronics and power train. She is powered by a Cummins QSB 6.7L. which complies with all U.S. EPA Tier 3 emissions regulations without the use of any after treatments. She also meets the International Association of Classification Societies (IACS) and SOLAS requirements. THE QSB engines were designed with enhanced sociability with the high-pressure common-rail design which virtually eliminates exhaust smoke and allows for quiet operations.
This design allows for an 80-percent reduction in noise and emissions which we all know improves the whole boating experience. We added an additional muffler and noise suppression system which increases the noise reduction and exhaust efficiency dramatically. She is a clean quite running machine. Being an excursion boat she is required to be a USCG Certificate of Inspection (COI) certified vessel. This is an extremely high safety standard to meet and maintain.Our COI inspection certificate is posted on the boat.
For navigational purposes she has been equipped with only the best Garmin has to offer, a GPS with sounder and auto pilot. For the comfort of our passengers she has a fresh water system with hot water shower, an 8 speaker stereo system equipped with an under water microphone, 2 dive ladders (fixed and removable) with 4 steps below the surface of the water for ease to get on the boat from the water, a generator and inverter, dc and ac charging, a head (marine toilet), comfortable seating, safety railings and a non-skid deck surface. And of course for fishing we have equipped her with Precision Marine Hardware outriggers and rod holders. All our fishing gear is brand new Shimano reels and rods and locally made fishing lures which work best in these local waters. All our captains are licensed by United States Coast Guard and are certified in First Aid and are subject to all USCG regulations and training. We are proud of her and welcome you to enjoy her on any of our Adventures.
