The San Giovanni is a third-generation, family-run commercial fishing boat. Our family has been catching fish on her, over 70 different species, out of Monterey Bay since 1959. When my father-in-law passed away four years ago, operations stopped as ownership was transferred to my wife and me. Now, we're raising funds to finish refurbishing the iconic all-wooden boat so we can get back on the water and start fishing.
Projected $400K to $750K in revenue each year, $240K in yearly expenses.
Capable of $20,000 worth of fish in a three-day trip.
One of 120 boats in the Certified Sustainable West Coast Groundfish Trawl Fishery.
Third-generation family business.
70-foot wooden boat, 75 years old.
The F/V San Giovanni LLC owns California State Halibut trawl permit and lease for Federal Limited Entry Trawl permit. These two permits allow the boat operate all year round without seasonal restrictions.
