Cape Verde Marlin - 40' Di Meu

Alto Fortim CP 701
Mindelo, Cape Verde

If you’re looking for monster Billfish in Cape Verde, look no further Cape Verde Marlin. As the name suggests, this seasoned charter company specializes in getting you and your group on the biggest Blue Marlin out there. The fish here have to be seen to be believed, so climb aboard and let them show you just how good the country’s big game bite is.

Spend your day aboard the ‘Di Meu’, a 40’ Pacemaker sportfishing yacht powered by twin 440 HP Yanmar engines. The boat has room for up to 6 guests and features everything from staterooms and a flybridge to a full galley and a private bathroom to let you enjoy your trip in comfort.

The Di Meu boasts cutting-edge electronics from Furuno, including GPS, sounders, plotters, VHF transmitters, and a 64-mile-range color radar. Everything you need to track down some real sea monsters. Once you find them, her Pompanette fighting chair and stand-up harness will take the strain against the monster Blues Cape Verde is known for.

The boat is outfitted with some serious tackle, too. Normic trolling rods in 50-lb and 80-lb ranges match with Shimano reels set up for anything from 50-lb 10 130-lb test. She also has lighter Penn Senator 30-lb and 50-lb stand-up gear if you really want your work cut out for you. Add in a mix of live bait and the latest lures and you’re ready for action.

A great boat with a skilled crew, fishing some of the best waters in the Atlantic for the world’s most prestigious gamefish – what more could you ask for? This is your very own slice of bucket list sportfishing, so climb aboard and get ready for a trip you will never forget!
