If you’ve been following along on Instagram or Facebook, you know that there’s a highly anticipated boat that will be splashing very soon- 46’ Release Boatworks “Showtime”.
As of today, the engineering is complete, the hull is freshly painted, the tower is beautifully welded and ready at Palm Beach Towers, and the teak helm pod, cabinetry, and trim are well on their way.
Showtime fishing team has repeatedly demonstrated their sportfishing prowess and commitment to success in South Florida sailfishing tournaments, and made the decision to step up to a 46’ Release Boatworks walkaround from a center console in 2019.
Among other accomplishments, Showtime Fishing Team earned 1st place in the Dust ‘Em Off Sailfish Warmup as well as Bluewater Movements’ Final Sail. With high stakes and even higher pressure, Capt. Nick Carullo proceeded to lead Showtime to the coveted title of 2019 Quest For the Crest Champions.
Capt. Carullo also earned honors as the 2019 Contender Florida Division “Captain of The Year” from InTheBite, and credits that to having a committed group of team players, consisting of angler Joe Fernandez (Owner), Frankie Villasante, Sarah Melia, and Doug Mientkiewicz. Manning the cockpit are Jacek Ozyp, JC Cleare, Kyle Sherman and Jorge Corzo. The team’s tournament line up is rounded out by Jason Spiewak on the camera.
Since inception of 46’ Release Boatworks “Showtime”, progress has been shared with the public on Instagram via @showtimefishingteam and @releaseboatworks.
Showtime Fishing Team has chosen to outfit their 46’ Walkaround with Pompanette chairs and rocket launcher, Rupp outriggers, Garmin electronics, Lumitec lighting, and a Best Marine pump system. Tower work will be done by Palm Beach Towers, and Showtime chose strong diesel power with MAN i6-800s. Producing 800hp at 2300 rpm, these beasts should provide quiet, smooth, and economical sportfishing pleasure.
