ABOUT FISHING BOATS
"The boats that excite the greatest interest are fishing boats, boats with a purpose. The big fishing boats are dreamed of, transferred by thought out to the lonely blue of the warm currents-the fisherman, a boat, scattered birds, and the restless sea and fish."
These are the words of Peter Goadby, from his wonderful book, "Saltwater Gamefishing".
This is your chance to experience that "dream". Don't compromise.

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 2014 Season. It has just "splashed" after extensive refitting in dry dock. Every corner has been renovated, from the new paint to the "fresh" engines. There are three 53' boats available for charter that I know of. One of them is illegal. The Port Authorities are watching them. The second one is literally junk. Then, there is this "beast"!

Not The Cheapest
The best ! Nobody beats our boats! Do you really want the cheapest boat? I don't think so. You want the best boat for the money. That is where we shine! Our boats are privately owned and maintained. Maintainance costs money! Quality boats are not cheap!
If you've suffered through the stench of diesel smoke and filthy boats with nasty heads you know what I mean. Why not spare yourself the hassle! The difference is substantial.. The cost is negligible!
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 our 32' Blackfin next to their 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.
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 our 32' Blackfin is larger than on their 46' Bertram!!
Those guys will crowd up to 12 people on their 46' Bertram but in actual fact the "working area" on our 32' Blackfin is larger!
Why is that? Because the Blackfin was designed to be a "fishing boat", not a "house boat"!
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. Body size is another consideration. Eight linemen from the Dever Broncos can't be compared to a Scoutmaster & 7 Boy Scouts.
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.
