The Boat

Mac’s Bet 63′ Ocean

The Mac’s Bet is a charter fishing company started in 1993. George and Sharon Pelaez started Mac’s Bet with a 65′ custom steel vessel. That was upgraded to a 72′ custom Aluminum vessel and that Mac’s Bet was upgraded to an 80′ custom aluminum vessel which was recently sold.

This vessel has been renovated and can accommodate up to six guests. Mac is powered by twin Man engines and a diesel generator with our Captains making certain fishing on her will be an ultimate experience. You and a partner will share a 17′ Carolina skiff with a Yamaha 25 electric start outboard motor.

Relax in the main salon with warm mahogany paneled walls and plush carpeted flooring.  The salon is well-appointed, with two custom sofas, television, DVD Player and stereo system.  Others may enjoy our back cockpit with seating, surround stereo, and gorgeous views. The spacious flybridge will be open to guests (weather permitting) which has custom seating and panoramic views of Chandeleur Island.

Our Location:

7113 Mandarin Drive
Biloxi, MS 39532

Mac has a state-of-the-art, open galley with stainless steel appliances.  You will dine in comfort at a custom banquet enjoying that first delicious cup of coffee!!!  While aboard, you’ll enjoy hearty breakfasts of eggs, bacon, cereal, and fruit.  Lunches are usually a local favorite of fried fish and red beans and rice, along with cold cuts and sandwiches.  Dinners on Mac are a culinary delight!  You’ll feast on Prime Rib, Shrimp Spaghetti, or Shrimp Alfredo.

Staterooms on Mac consist of two staterooms with custom mahogany twin bunks in each stateroom and a shower/head that is shared. Another stateroom has three custom mahogany bunks along with an ensuite shower/head. The fourth and final stateroom has a queen-size bed along with a stringer bunk made of the same beautiful mahogany. That stateroom has an ensuite shower/head, also.
