23 Vernese Custom

Handcrafted and co-designed by Damon Vernese, owner of Vernese Customs, Capt. Rob diligently outfitted Wicked Wanda with a custom platform, master fiberglass, mercury racing powered engine, Garmin and Simrad electronics, and titanic live wells and fish boxes for over 1000 lbs of fish.

Created with the competence and dexterity used in military technology, Wicked Wanda was built for the inlets, beach and offshore waters to accommodate from permit to wahoo and swordfish. Capt. Rob made a sporting vessel that local and statewide companies would not dare to build. Consequently, no thoughts or time were spared in the creation of this custom made lone survivor.

The genesis of Wicked Wanda comes from the namesake of Capt. Rob’s favorite plane that he flew in his 157 mission combat career as an Air Force Aerial Gunner. Capt. Rob’s heavy engagement in Afghanistan and enduring relationship with the Air Force has created a visceral connection to the magic of mechanical design and their willful power to seek and destroy. Wicked Wanda is bound, determined, and ready to ship you to war and back.

Capt. Rob’s love for Ranger Boats began as a small boy growing up in Moosehead Lake Maine, where all the acclaimed bass boats were Rangers. Unsurprisingly, 20 years later, his first saltwater boat was a 169 Ranger Ghost made in 2005. At full speed ahead and multiple Rangers later, the 184 Ghost has become Capt. Rob’s ideal flats boat.
