About this listing
Whitepointer (Saltwater fishing) originally built in 2016. Powered by 2 250HP Suzuki engines with a maximum cruising speed of 58 knots.
Try your hand at tagging and releasing a Marlin Grand Slam with Red Hot Fishing Charters out of the world famous fishing destination of Port Stephens. This extremely experienced crew fishes out of this port every year between January and March, and they have been doing so for over a decade. With a fast and comfortable boat, high quality tackle, and a sound knowledge of the local fishing grounds, they provide every guest who comes aboard their boat with the opportunity to experience big game fishing as it should be.
The Red Hot 1 is an 8.3 meter Whitepointer vessel whose solid fiberglass hull gives an unusually comfortable ride in the open seas. The boat was designed specifically for Red Hot Fishing Charters and it is licensed to travel up to 30 nautical miles offshore anywhere in Australia. Powered by twin Suzuki engines, the boat cruises at around 22 knots in average conditions and can reach speeds of up to 45 knots. This means you will be able to maximise your time on the water, especially as the Red Hot is often the first out of the dock and the last to return. The boat is fully equipped with top of the range electronics by Furuno and Lowrance, and skipper Simon is meticulous about keeping it neat, clean and tidy.
The attractive tourist destination of Port Stephens is just two hours’ drive from Sydney and an hour and a half on the plane from Melbourne. But people don’t only flock here because it is accessible: they come because it hosts all three of the Southern Hemisphere’s Marlin Species (Blue, Black, and Striped), and Red Hot Fishing Charters often see people tagging and releasing up to ten Marlins in a single day. The skipper’s personal best on a charter in this area is 16!
Not only are these waters perfect for billfish enthusiasts, they also host Mahi Mahi, Yellowtail Kingfish, Mako Sharks, and Yellowfin Tuna. Join Skipper Simon and see what it’s like to experience some of the best big game fishing in the world!
