It arrived the Saturday before Christmas. Shiny and new with sleek curves and a white fiberglass finish. At 35’ long and seating 15 passengers, the Fury Flyer was dropped into the Margaritaville Marina just in time. On Christmas Eve she made her inaugural trip with Captain Davey at the helm and excited passengers anticipated their parasailing adventure.
With the arrival of the Fury Flyer, Fury’s brand-spanking new parasail boat, we are proud to boast the largest fleet on the island. Joining Fly Girl, Holy Chute, and Chute Happens, the Fury Flyer was named for the Fury’s very first parasail boat from years past. The Fury Flyer brings the most advanced technology in parasailing to the azure waters of Key West. For our loyal customers, that means your experience at Fury will not only be the most enjoyable, but also the safest.
The Fury Flyer is spacious with room for 15 passengers. The extra long aft deck is designed especially for safe and dry take offs and landings. With a new boat comes brand new equipment, too. Our custom-made parachutes aboard the Flyer are crisp and brightly colored. The harnesses and life jackets are comfortable, and the tandem bar keeps you perfectly safe in the air.
With the arrival of this fourth boat, captains and crew are excited for new horizons on the water. More boats mean more room for our loyal customers and more work for our busy crew. It is certainly an exciting time along the docks at Fury and we hope that you come to join us in the new year!
