Tips on Choosing a Boat

Is Bigger Really Better?

Bigger charter boats are better . . . up to a point. We know that bigger costs more, don't we? But is it worth the extra money.


Look at the above photo. That's a 32' Blackfin next to a 46' Bertram.

It's all about usable space.

The important area on a fishing charter boat is the "cockpit". Unlike an airplane, the term "cockpit" doesn't refer to the helm. The term "cockpit" refers to the "fishing platform". That is the area in the back of the boat where the action takes place. That is where the fishermen and observers are.

Wasted space?

The area below decks is called the cabin. This includes the "salon" (a living room type area) and the "head" (bathroom) and on large boats, "state rooms" (bedrooms).

The cockpit . . .

The cockpit is where the action is. That is where the fishermen and observers want to be. Not below decks.

Look at the above picture again!

Look at the cockpit in both boats. Yes! Your eyes aren't fooling you. The cockpit in the 32' Blackfin is larger than on the 46' Bertram!!

Those guys will crowd up to 12 people on that 46' Bertram but in actual fact the "working area" on the 32' Blackfin is larger!

Why is that? Because the Blackfin was designed to be a "fishing boat", not a "house boat"!

When you look at our boats and compare them to the competition, make a note of the size of the "cockpits" on our boats and the corresponding outside lounge areas. You can't help to see why our boats are so much more comfortable for the assigned task. FISHING!!

Check out the size of the cockpit on our 53' Hatteras! It's huge! This boat was designed for fishing! With the huge deck and the huge bridge area and you've got enough space for a band and a square dance! The cabin is incredibly spacious as well.

How many anglers should we put on a boat?

That's not an easy question. There are variables involved. Wedding parties, for example, often like to fish together. We want all of our anglers to have a chance at catching nice fish.

For groups of eight anglers or more we can also offer two or more boats. That often lays the groundwork for some absolutely fun competition between the boats. Having your own private tournament adds to the fun!

No matter what your needs, we can accomodate you. This is simply something to consider.

By yourself or one friend?

53' Hatteras

If you've got a large group, you can now fish together without sacrificing quality.

We are fortunate to be able to offer this 53' Hatteras for charter during the 2013 Season.

It has just "splashed" after extensive refitting in dry dock. Every corner has been renovated, from the new paint to the "fresh" engines.

watch out for hotel charters

Throw dice, cut cards, spin a bottle, do whatever you want to choose a charter, but don't book through your hotel!

Do yourself a favor. Do your "due diligence" and find a company you're comfortable with for your fishing charter. Arranging a fishing charter is a lot different than selling you a seat at the local dolphin show.

Book with the boat owners. Not someone who has never even seen the boats!
