Hi Everyone! Sorry for the delay in our update it’s been hectic over the last couple of weeks as we have been making preparations for our 5 year MCA Coding Inspection. All Fishing Charter Boats must go through various yearly inspections, however the 5 year inspection is the most important, as the boat has to…Details
The Skipper, Barry, tells us about Cee King our new boat:
Cee King is a Watson 32 work boat built in southern Ireland in 1978. She is one of only 6 ever built. Watson also build majority of our RNLI fleet today so you can be guaranteed that you are going fishing on a great stable sea boat.
Cee King is licensed to carry 12 passengers with ease and comfort due to her spacious 16ft by 12ft deck space. Cee King is also fitted with all the latest Raymarine fish finding electronics aboard as well as a on-board fully flushing toilet and accommodation seating upfront.
Also aboard we have tea and coffee making facilities.
Cee King is fitted with a new Perkins sabre 215bhp turbo engine cutting travelling time to the fishing grounds giving you more time to fish.
The skippers Barry Rodgers and Barry Goodhall have over 60 years experience between them, with Barry Rodgers serving 10 years in the merchant navy then moving to Whitby over 40 years ago commercial fishing for white fish and also crab and lobster before becoming one of the very first charter fishing operators out of Whitby.
With his excellent knowledge of the fishing grounds of the coast of Whitby you can be guaranteed a great days fishing aboard the Cee King.
For the past 6 years Barry has been teaching his new skipper Barry Goodhall to give him the skills and knowledge to become a great skipper and this year Barry Goodhall has served his first year as skipper and what a great start he has made in his first season with halibut 10lb, cod up to 10lb, Wolf fish 9lb and several Ling up to 16lb all boated in his first season as skipper, so as you can see he’s already off to a great start.
We will always do our best to get you on the fish and give you the best sea fishing experience possible.
