Fish Head Fish Head is a 31 foot custom built Sea-Vee center console powered by twin Mercury OPTI-MAX 225HP motors. The boat is built for speed in the rugged seas with a soft ride. Fish Head cruises at 34 knots with a top speed of 48 knots. Most importantly she offers a smooth comfortable ride regardless of sea conditions.
