The Boat

Snapper, a 42 foot powerglide catamaran is a top-notch charter boat. With a beam of 17 feet, she has the biggest deck space in Weymouth harbour, offering the angler plenty of room to maneuver and making it the perfect boat for angling clubs and larger groups looking for plenty of fishing space. Powered by twin 6 cylinder perkins turbo diesel engines she is both fast and stable, reducing travelling time enabling you to get fishing quicker!

Snapper boasts all of the usual facilities and more. She is equipped with the latest GPS and fish finding equipment, plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, a toilet and as much tea and coffee as you can handle.

Our aim aboard Snapper is to put you on the fish. Whilst we cannot guarantee you a British record, you can expect a good laugh, a fantastic day out and a few fish for the table.

Nothing is too much trouble aboard Snapper. If you have no gear it's no problem, there is a large selection available for you to use. We cater to all abilities of anglers, with trips suited to anyone wanting to give fishing a go. There are 8-10 hour inshore and wrecking trips, as well as half day and evening trips – perfect for families or introducing children to the sport. We also run 3-5 day trips to Alderney and the Channel Islands, an ideal lads holiday!

Snapper is not restricted to fishing trips, she is also available to charter for survey, cargo and workboat duties.

Please do not hesitate to contact me by any means should you have any enquiries or questions.

this season has seen an influx of sharks into the area. with plenty showing up to steal plaice and bream off our lines. we decided to see if we could catch one. we weren't disappointed. we've now boated plenty of sharks up to the 150lb mark we hope to continue sharking until the end of October and potentially November. we have invested in all the top quality gear required to catch land and release these powerful sharks.
