Saltaire Game Fishing

This classic 35ft blue water quarter-horse vessel has personally witnessed some of the most exciting fishing to be experienced on The Great Barrier Reef and also beyond to the vast reaches of the untamed waters of Papua New Guinea.

This vessel is easily the classiest boat in QLD for its size class and is crewed by a local Father & Son operation with over 20 years experience together on our local waters. Highly maintained, backed up with wonderful service, fishing equipment and undisputable experience, it is categorically sensational value. With multiple sanctioned tournament wins over many years you are dealing with the best on offer (tournament resume listed below).

Based in Port Douglas, Saltaire is available for Heavy Tackle, Light tackle and Popper Reef Fishing. It is a Custom Made vessel built specifically for the Great Barrier Reef conditions and is beautifully designed for daily and extended trips.

So valued is the reputation of this vessel, it is contracted on a regular basis to accompany the ultimate fishing extended motherships in Far NTH QLD waters to enhance the fishing aspect on their client's trips.
