Boat & Tackle
Welcome aboard the charter boat Fish Tale.
Fish Tale is a 25ft Parker Sport Cabin. She is 9ft 6in wide. Parker is world-renowned for their tradition of hand-crafted custom boat building. Parker boats are manufactured in Beaufort, North Carolina along the coastal waters of the Outer Banks where ocean conditions are demanding. Parker Boats are built to be seaworthy, versatile and reliable. Fish Tale not only will get us to the fishing grounds and back, she will do it safely.
Fish Tale is powered by a 300 hp Yamaha outboard engine. With the Parker’s 21 degree deadrise hull design, she will cut through the water to give a smooth, stable & dry ride to get to where we are going and back if ocean conditions are not ideal.
Fish Tale’s fishing area, the cockpit, has nearly 70 sq ft of space for our groups up to 4 anglers to have plenty of room to fish. The cabin has room for 4 people to get out of the weather with cushioned seating. A tackle storage center keeps everything organized and handy when needed. She also has an electric flush head (toilet) for your convenience.
The boat is in full safety compliance with the US Coast Guard regulations.
