Boat & Tackle
Welcome aboard the charter boat Fish Tale.
Fish Tale is a downeast style sportfishing boat that is 36ft in length and 13ft 9in wide. The hull is a Calvin Beal Jr design, built by William Faulkingham & Tracy Watts at Jonesboro Custom Finish Shop in Jonesboro Maine.
Fish Tale is powered by a Catapillar C9 575 HP diesel engine. She’s able to cruise at 24 knots. The downeast design allows us to get to the fishing grounds dry, with a smooth, stable ride, no pounding, even when the ocean conditions are not ideal.
Fish Tale’s fishing area, the cockpit, has 170 sq ft of space for our anglers to have plenty of room to fish. The wheelhouse is spacious and has plenty of comfortable cushioned seating for our passengers. A tackle center keeps everything organized and handy when needed. There is also air conditioning to make those hot and humid summer days bearable and heat for the chilly spring & fall days. The cabin has bunks that can sleep 4 people. She also has a full stand up head for your convenience.
The boat is in full safety compliance with US Coast Guard regulations to include ACR 406 EPIRB, 8 Man Offshore Life Raft
