Big Catch Charter Boat


Big Catch

is our custom 43’ Hatteras Express. The hull is a 1978, hand-laid solid glass, built like a tank to handle any sea condition. The previous owner stripped the hull down to the stringers in 2002 and spared no expense in making her one of the finest fishing boats in her class. The air-conditioned two stateroom, two head layout below comfortably sleeps six with mahogany planked walls and teak and holly flooring. While the express layout topside is perfect for charter guests. There is plenty of seating, shade and breeze in the open air helm area.

Below deck, the original engines, transmissions and running gear have all been replaced and upgraded with brand new Cummins 450hp Diamond Series engines, providing a comfortable and reliable 21 knot cruising speed and a top speed of 28 knots when needed. The weight, hull design and lower center of gravity combine to give you the fish-ability that Hatteras is famous for. The cockpit is 130 square feet of hard core fishing complete with a built-in fish box, live well and tuna door.

The new

Big Catch

is also equipped with Rupp outriggers and ample rod storage allowing us the flexibility to quickly change gears from bottom fishing to trolling to pitching live baits. Functionality, flexibility and room are all combined so our customers can maximize their experience and catch more fish.

If you’ve fished with us aboard the old

, you owe it to yourself to enjoy the experience of the new and improved

Big Catch

and if you haven’t fished with us before, stop looking, you’ve found the perfect charter boat.
