The Boat

The current Mushin is a Henriques 44 foot Flybridge Sportfisherman, a semi-custom built sport fishing yacht considered by many to be one of the premiere offshore vessels. She is powered by twin Detroit Diesel motors totaling 1100 horsepower that afford a comfortable 23 knot cruise and top-end speeds approaching 30 knots. She is a well-proportioned and well-appointed vessel that will exceed your expectations. The vessel is perfect for the 6-person trips we do – an enormous fishing area (cockpit) with mezzanine seating, that measures over 170 square feet with cavernous amounts of fish storage; roomy and comfortable salon (main cabin) with wraparound-seating for relaxing and entertaining in air conditioned/heated space; two spacious staterooms with bunks; complete galley with electric stove/oven, refrigerator, freezer, microwave, coffee maker; and a full head (bathroom). Other comforts include 32000 BTU air conditioning/heating, hot/cold freshwater, DIRECTV HD satellite television/programming on 48-inch flat screen HDTV, surround sound system, DVD/VCR/stereo, cell phone booster (affords coverage to about 10 miles out), and full carpeting. A 9-kw Northern Lights generator supplies plenty of electrical power on the water.
The Mushin can often be easily distinguished by many other Henriques with her custom tuna tower to spot fish from up high. The tuna tower has full engine, steering controls, and electronics so the Captain can find fish easier. She is meticulously maintained – cleanliness and organization are top priorities on the Mushin. On her flybridge is a massive and redundant array of electronics to afford safe and effective navigation and fish finding. We were one of the first vessels to showcase the Furuno NavNet3D system, FLIR (forward looking infrared) night vision systems, and complete underwater lighting. We maintain and exceed all USCG required safety equipment.
