Our Boat

 

We use a locally built fishing boat, specifically modified for professional game fishing.
20 Ft long, 25 hp Yamaha outboard engine, Speed max 15 knots.
The boat has a sun roof which will be used only in low velocity wind condition and on special request of the customer. It has the disadvantage of hampering the angler when fighting the fish, and acting as an unwelcome sail when it is windy.

Portable toilet, Cool box, Compass, Fish Finder, GPS, Life Vests, Fire extinguisher, First Aid Kit, emergency lights, emergency rations of biscuits and water.

Service on Board

  • For half day trips there will be a cool box with soft drinks, water and fresh local fruits. Anyone who needs meals is advised to order a lunch box from his hotel to take along.
  • There will be a minimum crew of two on board, the captain and a knowledgeable English and German speaking assistant. Depending on fishing area and weather condition a third crew member will be of additional assistance.
  • The angler will be an active member of the crew. He may be required to assist in recovering the anchor, disentangle fishing lines or in loading and unloading the boat.
  • There will be a portable toilet on board, but due to the limited space on the boat the use of this toilet my create some embarrassment, which will be overcome by the mutual discrete behavior of all on board. Therefore it is used only in urgent cases. It is advisable to use the facilities at the Hotel or at the Club.
  • Due to the breeze of the moving boat the strength of the sun is often underestimated. It is advisable to wear a wide brimmed hat and shirts with long sleeves and trousers with long legs. A sun block cream of at least SBF 20 is essential.
  • Customers not familiar with the handling of the fishing gear will be familiarized before and during the trip. They have to give the information when registering (booking) the trip.
