Our Boats

Baloo

Pride of the fleet is Baloo. Walking down from the helm station into the luxuriously furnished galley, convertible into a bedroom, you will find a comfortable bathroom and guest bedroom easily providing total over night capability for four people. Catching, cleaning and barbequing can all be done on the same huge cockpit deck. With so many fish in the sea, it may be hard to come up with a valid reason to return back to shore.

Baloo is fully equipped for all your needs. Seven Penn International rods and reels can be used simultaneously to increase your chances of a catch. Down riggers spread the lines and are easily accessible. The tuna tower provides the captain with a much higher view of the sea which allows him to spot the fish from further away. For long days out at sea the vessel has a head and comfortable seating down below in the spacious cabin if you want to get out of the sun for a while. All modern fishing and safety equipment is included, from GPS and fish finder to a full compliment of lifejackets and VHF radio.

With a length of over 38’ and a beam of 11’ Baloo has plenty of space on board. The facilities on board allow for longer trips than Timimi or Suli Suli. We regularly run three or five day charters to Pemba, Mafia Island and the famous Latham Island where in the past fishermen have taken time out from catching fish to snorkel amongst huge schools of tuna and alongside manta rays. On these trips we enjoy fantastic fishing and then can relax in the evening with a cold beer and barbeque the fish we have caught that day. You’ll never eat fresher seafood than that!

Timimi

The Norwegians have a prestigious boat building history. From the long boats that crossed the Atlantic hundreds of years before Columbus to their latest modern fishing vessels they have never failed to build quality boats. Timimi is a 7.5m Windy from Norway and lives up to the history in every way. This custom built fishing boat is powered by twin 85HP outboard motors. The vessel has enough power to reach some excellent fishing grounds including Leven Banks and Pemba Island in comfort and style. The crew of professional fisherman can guide beginners through their first trip abut have enough experience themselves to help even seasoned veterans.

Timimi carries a wide range of fishing equipment. She has downriggers so your lines won’t get tangled and you can choose from thirty and fifty pound lines. The rods are a combination of Penn International and Shimano and are all in excellent condition. All that good equipment would be useless if there were no fish so the boat is equipped with a fish finder, GPS and VHF radio alongside all the usual safety equipment. There is space for four people to share the boat without a squeeze and inside the luxurious cabin you’ll find sofas, cushions and a marine head for added comfort.

Suli Suli

Suli Suli is an 8.5m open deck boat which has been professionally converted for the job of fishing. She has had a fighting chair added, along with fish finder, GPS, downriggers and six rod holders. As with all our boats she holds a current certificate of sea-worthiness and is equipped with lifejackets, VHF radio and all other safety gear. Her two 40HP Yamaha outboard motors allow her to cover a lot of ground in comfort and make sure you can get to where the fish are.

When you find the fish you have six Shimano rods and reels with 20lb lines to choose from. If you wish to bring your own tackle or would like to use something a bit heavier then let us know and we’ll accommodate you.

This vessels open deck design is perfect for the sun lovers amongst you, allowing you to top up your tans on the way out but with enough shade that you can shelter if it gets a bit too hot. The open deck allows for keen fly fisherman to cast their lures in schools of feeding Tuna, Dorado and Rainbow Runner. Many of our guests and several experienced fishermen have said Suli Suli was their favourite boat. She is simple, unpretentious and perfectly suited to a great day out in the sun, bobbing around on the sea and the experienced captain and crew always seem to find fish!
