Legacy Charters - 52 ft

Take a trip with Legacy Charters to see why fishing in Virginia Beach can be a famously exhilarating experience. With air from the Atlantic Ocean drifting tantalizingly from the coast and the famous Chesapeake Bay just around the corner, there is an incredibly diverse fishery just waiting to be explored. Whether you are hoping to take a huge Flounder home for the freezer or test your fishing skills against an exuberant White Marlin or speedy Wahoo, Legacy Charters of Virginia Beach will be able to cater to your wishes.

Your vessel will be the head-turning ‘Legacy’, a beautiful and lovingly restored boat that is thoroughly rigged out for a comfortable and successful sportfishing adventure. This 52 ft custom Buddy Davis Sportfisherman is fast, cruising at over 20 knots to get you offshore with plenty of time to fish. The boat’s air conditioned interior is furnished with plenty of comfortable seating, bunks to relax in, and a TV and DVD player in case you would like to relax inside on the way to the fishing grounds. Rigged with top of the range fishing gear and electronics, the boat has everything you need for a great day on the water. And with a maximum of six passengers on board, you and your friends will have ample space both inside and on deck.

Before booking your trip, you should decide whether you would like to explore the bountiful Chesapeake Bay, searching for great table fare such as Flounder, Tautog, Cobia, and Drum, or venture out into the ocean to troll for a Billfish, Wahoo, Tuna, or Mahi Mahi, or to bottom fish for Sea Bass and Tilefish.

Families and professional fishermen alike are welcomed on board the Legacy, with the able crew able to give even the most demanding of anglers a trip to remember while also teaching novices the basic tricks of the trade. Whether you are fishing with a group of buddies or a young family, you and your group will have something to remember.

Captain Bill is a fourth generation fisherman who started his angling career at the age of five when he worked as a bait boy on his father’s boat. By the time he was 24 he had his captain’s license and was running charter boats for other captains. Eventually getting his first boat the “Southern Belle” in 1996, he moved the business to Virginia Beach in 2002 and hasn’t looked back since.
