Additional Description:

TRUE BLUE CHARTERS provide specialist fishing excursions for up to 12 anglers primarily aboard our own custom built angling catamaran, but occasionally drawing on the services of other top skippers and high profile boats from along the South Coast.
We can tailor trips to suit our clients requirements ranging from general fishing trips to more specialist excursions to target named species such as shark, bass, cod, or mid channel wreck fishing to target large conger eels and ling. As well as fishing trips, our boat TRUEBLUE can also be used for bird and wildlife watching along the Jurassic Coast, lazy days afloat to visit local beaches or neighbouring ports, or as a stable platform for photography or watching sporting events such as powerboat and yacht racing. Full corporate days combining any of the above activities and including a choice of food can be tailored to suit customer’s requirements.
TRUEBLUE is an 11.2 meter factory built Cheetah Catamaran, powered by twin Honda 250HP engines, providing a very fast, spacious and stable angling platform with plenty of room for up to 12 anglers. She was first launched in February 2017. TRUEBLUE has a top speed well in excess of 30 knots and a comfortable fully laden cruising speed of over 20 knots. The vessel complies fully with the Maritime and Coastguard Agencies “Code of Practice” for operation up to 60 miles day or night. As well as all the necessary safety equipment, TRUEBLUE is equipped with a comprehensive electronics and navigation package, a heated cabin, generator, toilet and galley. The galley includes a microwave, gas hob, water boiler and electric kettle.

    GCSAC 3day trip Alderney skilled skipper experienced crew cheap B&B what more do you want? had a great time. The first day good with plenty Bream Scad Launce The 2nd 3rd day was catching.Bass 40Lb+tope I can say that both Steve an Garyy (crew) tried their hardest to put us on the fish and were full of good advice and very helpful in Two of the nicest charter staff I have met. There was a great friendly atmosphere on the boat which is very comfortable and cruises at a nice speed. .

    Skippers Reponse: Thank you David for your kind words. It was in fact a four day trip though, with day one, the transit day, seeing us fishing ground mid channel for Rays, tope, bream and conger. Overall 21 species landed. You were part of a lovely group of guys and for Gary and I, it was a pleasure to have you aboard.
