Faster Than Air?Not Quite. However, there are very few vessels in the State of Alaska that have The Boat's capability to get underway from municipal type ports to Remote locations in a hurry. The Boat's high speed, exposed water rating, maneuverability in tight quarters or in unfavorable sea conditions, and shallow draft versatility, gets you to and from your destination with authority and ease.
The Boat is 2-3 times faster than conventional charter boats her size. This allows you more time in the hot fishing areas. Less driving - More fishing!!

Her large back deck and spacious, fully enclosed cabin, allow for uncluttered freedom to move about while fishing and wildlife viewing. The Boat's engineered design makes for an incredibly stable and comfortable ride.

Bill SpencerA mariner first, with decades of ocean waters experience. I have sailed throughout Alaska from Southeast waters to the Northern Arctic. My experience has been as a registered fishing guide even before Alaska required state registration. I am also a Large Game Transporter, a Ships Master & Tug Boat Captain and hold an MMD. My maritime experience in sailing year round in Alaska has crystallized the importance of vessel safety utilizing vessels that have the necessary stability and seaworthiness for what can be the unexpected. In vast Alaska you can find yourself in places where you have to rely on your own resources and not assume that someone is around the corner to pick you out of the water and get you home. Fishing and Viewing Wildlife and Scenery with small groups and families are about the most fun anyone could ask for. I have a great appreciation and love for this state, so for me, taking someone out to experience Alaska for what she is, just doesn’t get any better. If you are looking to go out to kill a whole bunch of fish or have someone else fish for you please contact someone else. However, if you want to go fishing, catch fish, have lot of fun, set your own hook, maybe net your best friends fish, or work a downrigger, while seeing Alaskan wildlife and scenery we are a sure bet!
