Madeira Marlin Charters

Are you a hardcore angler looking for another exciting pursuit? Or a complete novice desiring something different than typical tourist activity? Madeira Marlin Charters invites you to experience fishing aboard “Sorted.” This is a chance to catch the fish of a lifetime, while enjoying idyllic conditions aboard a comfortable, spacious boat, with excellent food and drinks.

Sorted is a 35’ Luhrs Express offshore boat, powered by twin 315 HP Yanmar engines. She has a custom cockpit, a Pompanette fighting chair, and a raised comfortable seating area with an open view of all the action. The boat also features the latest technology in GPS and fishfinders and a private bathroom. She can accommodate up to 8 guests.

Striking fish species you’ll target are prized among sport fishermen for their size, speed, and fighting abilities. You’ll mostly go after Blue and White Marlin, Wahoo, Bluefin, Bigeye, and Skipjack Tuna. It’s also possible to catch Triggerfish, Amberjack, and Barracuda.

Your captain Howard Williams has over 14 years of fishing experience in Madeira and he’s a keen game-fishing enthusiast. He will provide you with top-notch fishing equipment – Penn VSX reels, Pinnacle rods, and Black Bart lures. Lunch packages are provided for 4 guests on a full day trip but there’s an extra charge for additional people. Get in touch with the captain to discuss the details for an airport transfer.

I have always been a keen fisherman. As a boy, I fished on the Gwendraeth for Sewin and Trout,etc. I had my first boat in the early '80s and since then have been building leisure fishing boats in the UK, striving to give the ordinary fisherman a strong, seaworthy, well-designed craft. I caught my first Blue Marlin in Madeira and although I have fished in many countries, from that moment on I was hooked!
