Here’s an interesting bit of news from Nicholson Yachts: The 58-foot Hatteras sportfishing yacht Toucan has just joined the charter fleet in the Bahamas.
This is not the type of yacht we see very often in the crewed charter industry, but she’s plenty popular among owners on the East Coast of the United States who like to combine onboard comfort with outdoor readiness for any kind of fish that are biting.
Toucan is a 1978 build that most recently was refit in 2014. For the past 20 years, owners Ti Comstock and Mercedes Kornfeld have operated her for charter in the Bahamas and Caribbean. She’s available in two ways: as a mothership for bonefishing charters, and as a traditional charter yacht with a focus on beaches, swimming, snorkeling and rendezvous scuba diving with local operators.
Toucan accommodates up to five guests in two staterooms. The master is full-beam and has a queen-size bed, while the second guest stateroom has twin beds. The layout is ideal for a family interested in water sports and fishing fun.
The lowest weekly base rate will be $14,000, which includes most expenses such as food and fuel. Any reputable charter broker can tell you more about Toucan or help you book a week aboard in the Bahamas.
