Meet The Fleet

Helen M & Charlotte Lady

The Helen M and Charlotte Lady are twin sister tour boats used for King Fisher Fleet’s sightseeing cruises. They were custom built for King Fisher Fleet by Scarano Shipbuilding in Albany, New York at a boatyard on the Hudson River. Their maiden voyages were a doozy: their delivery from Albany to Punta Gorda, Florida was via the Atlantic intracoastal waterway and the Okeechobee Waterway. They were designed specifically for running excursions on Charlotte Harbor and the Peace River and their construction was overseen by the U.S. Coast Guard to ensure that they are safe, stable and suited for this service. Their hull and superstructure is aluminum and they are powered by two environmentally friendly and fuel efficient John Deere diesel engines which meet the latest EPA Tier Three emissions standards. These quiet, reliable engines are rated at 250 Hp each. Helen M entered service in August 2019. Charlotte Lady entered service in 2016. These stately vessels will be seen on Charlotte Harbor for many years to come.
