The team at Churchill Yacht Partners suggests the 121-foot Crescent motoryacht Olga, which is available for charter in tandem with the 61-foot Garlington “fishing machine” Ambush. (What a great name for sneaking up on big catch!)
At Camper & Nicholsons International, a good option for fishing fanatics is the 149-foot Trinity motoryacht Carpe Diem, which has a 58-foot sportfishing yacht available for charter clients to enjoy—and at no extra charge. The fishing boat is included in the weekly base rate of $175,000.
Broker June Montagne at Northrop & Johnson recommends the 138-foot McMullen & Wing motoryacht Mea Culpa, which is a true gentleman’s motoryacht that boasts a veritable “tuna tower” high above its sundeck.
The team at YPI Group passed on this guest comment from clients aboard the 151-foot motoryacht Elle, which doesn’t look like a fishing boat, but apparently offers that and more: “The charter aboard Elle was incredible, and the crew was the best we have ever had. My wife loves to fish, and Jason and crew were very accommodating to our needs.”
CharterWave editor Kim Kavin has several recommendations this week. First is the 112-foot Alloy motoryacht VvS1, whose owner is a fishing fanatic. The cockpit was specially designed to allow for gamefishing without interfering in the luxury experience of other guests.
Also a must-consider for fishing fanatics is the 135-foot Christensen motoryacht Atlantica. Capt. Roy Hodges tows a 33-foot Intrepid tender, which he seems to enjoy driving to the canyons as much as he enjoys skippering the lovely mothership herself.
At 170 feet long, the expedition yacht Latitude is a fishing machine that carries not just a 27-foot center console tender, but also a 43-foot powercatamaran decked out with a fighting chair. The latter tender is bigger than most fishing boats you can charter for a day out of coastal waters!
The 105-foot Broward motoryacht Independence 2 has an owner who is an avid fisherman, and thus is outfitted with all the gear and tenders required to find fish wherever the yacht charters.
Last but not least this week, consider the 193-foot expedition motoryacht Seawolf. She carries multiple tenders and fishing gear for various environments—and is built to a standard that lets her charter in locations that other yachts can’t reach (and where fish like to hide).
