Blue Boy is a 31’ Bertram Bahia Mar originally built in 1969 and restored in 2015. This legendary fishing boat has gone through a complete refurbishment from top to bottom. Everything has been replaced, including new twin Cummins 6BTA engines—making her a 10 out of 10. With her vast cockpit and exceptional seaworthiness, Blue Boy is extremely comfortable, whether out in the Atlantic looking for big game fish or cruising along the beautiful coastline to one of the island’s secret spots.

Guiding your experience is an extremely knowledgeable and passionate captain and crew. They have competed in tournaments throughout the Caribbean, taking home the title of 1st Place on multiple occasions. Rest assured they know a thing or two when it comes to reeling in big game fish!

While deep sea fishing off the coast of St. Lucia you can catch Sailfish, Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Yellowfin Tuna, and more. The crew provides custom rods, Shimano Reels, and a wide variety of lures. Depending on the species, you will target your catch by jigging, popping, trolling, or bottom fishing.

Hackshaw’s Boat Charters provides a fishing license and all tackle. You are welcome to keep your catch. On full day trips you may even have the option to enjoy your catch for lunch! Complimentary drinks are served on board. There is room for up to six passengers.

So come aboard and enjoy an unforgettable fishing trip off the coast of St. Lucia!
