The PELICAN comes home!

The PELICAN comes home!

The PELICAN, the 56′ custom, was originally delivered to owner/operator Arch Bracher in April, 2000. He jumped onto the bridge and headed down to Mexico within a week of the delivery!

PELICAN is a true testament of what a well-maintained sportfish can be. After 42,000 hours of Charter service, catching thousands of Tuna, Mahi, and countless numbers of billfish including its tournament winning history the PELICAN is finally in need of a new set of mufflers, a paint job and a few minor cosmetics. “What is amazing to see”, states a very proud builder Paul Mann as he smiles up at her in his facility in Manns Harbor, “is that the inside of the fly bridge has the original paint which I painted 20 years ago and it looks very good!”

Arch and the crew are a great example of the importance of an ongoing maintenance schedule and how it secures the value of your investment. We couldn’t be more proud to have Arch bring her back to her original home for our team of skilled craftsmen to work her 20 year refit.  

Paul Mann Custom Boats stands behind all of our custom builds and is honored to work with any of our owners and captains for refits, upgrades and general maintenance.
