Additional Description:

Snapper, a 33 foot Blyth catamaran is a top-notch charter boat. With a beam of 16 feet, she has one of the biggest deck spaces in Weymouth harbor, offering the angler plenty of room to maneuver. Powered by twin 8L doosan turbo diesel engines she is both fast and stable, reducing travelling time enabling you to get fishing quicker!

Following an extensive refit over the winter months, 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.

    A lovely evening fishing on Snapper out of Weymouth harbour. Thank you Luke Pettis so much for a brilliant trip. Some lovely memories created that evening. Highly recommended and we'll definitely come out again the next time we are down South.
