Katchalot I & II both are 25' centre console boats which suit families on island hopping cruises, anglers preferring to fish inshore for walu or to pop for GT's and surfers wanting to enjoy the breaks with their own boards.The Katchalot boats are rigged for light tackle fishing, bottom bashing and casting and are limited to inshore trips as well as on the outer fringes of the main barrier reef (weather permitting). The Katchalot boats do not have a game chair so they do not use bent butt rods and all fishing is done with stand-up rigs. The Katchalot crews target species such as mahi mahi, wahoo and narrow barreled (Spanish) mackerel, casting for GT’s and handline fishing for reef fish such as coral trout. The Katchalot boats are rigged with Shimano Trynos 20 & 30 lbs reels for light inshore fishing.
Katchalot I & II have simple open layouts with no toilets or sun/rain cover.
