The Boat

You know there is more to it than just luck. There’s fishing the right bait, the water temperature, the wind, the season and a host of other factors that stand between you and the scale at the dock. And then there’s the boat… To put it simply: the boat matters. Contender is the best sport fishing boat on the market. Period.

Incognito” is a 30’ Contender center console powered by twin 300 hp Yamaha 4 stroke engines. An extremely fast and comfortable 360-degree fishing platform, she is without a doubt, one of the sweetest center consoles on the water.

The Yamaha 300hp four stroke motors will surprise you with how powerful yet quiet they really are. Fully loaded, she will top out at 60 knots, and cruise at a comfortable 40 knots. She holds 240 gallons of fuel and has a range of 400 nautical miles. The flat 360-degree deck is surrounded by clean fully padded gunwales with no obstructions or snags, which stand-up and fly fishermen will love. An electric marine head, plenty of cooler space, fore and aft seating, and bean bags for the long trips provide for family-friendly charters. Fishermen will enjoy the large fish holds, huge transom mounted live well and more than 40 rod holders!

Fishing Equipment

When you step on a boat that you’ve hired for the day, the last thing you want to see is antique fishing rods with missing parts with rusty lures tied to a frayed line. For the kind of money you’re spending, you deserve the best in all the equipment on board. That includes safety equipment, fishing tackle, a good assortment of rods and reels, a well-organized cockpit. Everything, including the crew, ready to fish…

Shimano Spinning Reels

Incognito is outfitted with the best in fishing rods and reels. All of our spinning outfits from 6lb to 100lb are Shimano reels on custom-made rods by Boomerang Fishing in Palm Beach, FL. Whether you are pitching jigs, lures or live baits, all 24 outfits are set up for specific line tests and type of fishing.

Our conventional outfits are also Shimano reels on custom stand up rods. We use sabiki rods when making bait.

Our big game outfits are Shimano Tiagra 50 LRSW and Tiagra 130 reels on custom Calstar rods built for us by Reel Easy Custom Rods in Newburyport MA.

Incognito also has Rupp Top Gun Outriggers with Bly Custom Graphite Fiber poles, Cannon Digitroll and Penn Downriggers

 

 

 


Safety Equipment

Knowing the captain is licensed and is First Aid certified is important. Ask to see his credentials. You should also get a quick safety tour before you leave the dock. Know where the life raft, life jackets, EPIRB, offshore distress signal and first aid kits are located on board.

Incognito is inspected by the US Coast Guard for safety equipment prior to each season. Most charter boats are not. The ones who are, like us, do so because we are involved in the commercial fishing, which requires certain equipment based on the size of the boat and where you fish. Incognito is certified to 100 miles offshore with a 6 man life raft, 100-mile distress kit, Type 1 jackets, survival suits, epirb and much much more. You can relax knowing everything is up to date and available for your safety.
