The Boat

The Sea Era is a 42-foot custom sportfisherman designed and constructed by Captain Dean Johnson and his boat building business, Johnson Boat Works Inc. Johnson Boat Works is located in Wanchese on Roanoke Island on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.  The beam is 14 1/2’ making it a stable and comfortable ride with plenty of room. It is also equipped with the latest Furano NavNet radar, GPS, and fish finding equipment.
The Sea Era is powered by a single C-9, 510 horsepower Caterpillar diesel engine which gives it a top speed of 27 knots and a cruise speed of 20 knots plus. We have 4 chairs for your comfort and a spacious salon to relax from fishing. The boat is equipped with outriggers and Shimano Tiagro trolling tackle is available in the 50 wide and 80 wide.


Here are just a few pictures of the Sea Era being built here at Dean’s shop from January until June 2008.  As stated on our home page, it was named after Dean’s granddaughter, Alyssa Sierra.  One of the pictures is of Captain Dean and his boat’s namesake!
