CAPTAIN JOHN, Point Pleasant Beach, NJ – 2005
Captain Jeff Gutman's "CAPTAIN JOHN" from Point Pleasant Beach, NJ. Captain Jeff specializes in offshore deep-drop Tilefish fishing during the summer months, offshore canyon Tuna fishing during the late summer and fall months, and offshore Sea Bass trips during late fall. This 85-foot aluminum vessel was built in 1974 by Gulf Craft at Patterson, LA as Captain Bill Van Wetering's "CAPT. BILL VAN" and originally sailed from Belmar, NJ. She later sailed as Captain John Connell's "CAPTAIN JOHN" from Keyport, NJ, as Captain Arnold 'Speedy' Hubert's "SPEEDY EXPRESS" from Captree, NY, and as the "ZEPHYR VI" from Gloucester, MA. In June 2006, Captain Jeff repowered the boat, replaced the gensets, and renamed her the "VOYAGER". The boat was sold in 2015 and is presently sailing as Captain Robert Andresen's "CAPTREE PRINCESS" from Captree, NY.
