Description

The evolution of the sportfishing yacht has changed significantly over the past few decades, not just from the materials used in the hull, or the advancement in construction techniques, but from its true capabilities. Anglers move up from center-consoles to larger sportfishing yachts for several reasons, but the main one is that you can simply fish farther out and for longer periods of time. All sportfishing yachts were once entirely made of wood, and while some custom sport fishing boat manufacturers still build wooden boats, the vast majority of sportfishing yachts sold today use a high-quality composite that is resin-infused for maximum durability and performance. Hulls are larger, lighter, and stronger which means today's sport fishing boat can go faster and fit more on it. Many of the Viking Yachts or Hatteras Yachts today feature 3 to 4 staterooms, each with their own head along with oversized salons, enclosed bridges, flybridges, and more creature comforts to make your time on the water more enjoyable. The most popular style of sport fishing boat today has to be the Convertible Sportfish due to its versatility of having the open bridge, along with the amenities of a motor yacht .

There are thousands of yachts available on the United website through our MLS services, many of which are sportfishing boats. There are many different brands, styles, features, and capabilities of both custom and production sportfish sold today, and the team at United has years of experience both selling sportfish and working with the manufacturers on new builds. Our brokers will share with you what they think is the best sport fishing boat available on the market. Let the United team help you in your search to find the perfect sportfishing boat, call our main office today at (772) 463-3131. United is also a dealer for new Hatteras Yachts and Cabo Yachts .

SPEAK TO A SALES PROFESSIONAL

The improvements in construction and added space have paved the way for larger, more powerful engines to be used in sportfishing yachts. Whether tournament-fishing or just a weekend warrior, getting to the fishing grounds quickly is imperative. Today's sportfish boats can cruise anywhere from 20 to 30 knots and exceed speeds of 50 knots with big twin diesel engines. How fast a sportfishing boat can go depends on several factors include engine horsepower, hull shape, the construction of the vessel, and the weight of the entire boat.

It's the amenities on board though that generally appeal to the owner who likes to fish with his family. Comfortable, air-conditioned salons, full galley's with lots of storage for extended trips, hot showers in en suite bathrooms can make any extended fishing trip more enjoyable with kids on board especially.

Below are several prominent custom and production sportfishing boat brands :

  • Bayliss Boatworks
  • Bertram Yachts
  • Buddy Davis Boats
  • Egg Harbor Boats
  • F&S Yachts

Sportfishing yachts are typically boats 50ft and over that are purpose-designed and built for offshore fishing in tournaments such as the Atlantic Ocean White Marlin Open of Ocean City, MD—the world’s largest billfish tournament with a multi-million-dollar payout, or for the adventure of chasing pelagic gamefish in remote spots around the world. Kona-Hawaii (Pacific Blue Marlin), Isla Mujeres-Mexico (Sailfish), New Zealand (Striped Marlin), Great Barrier Reef-Australia (Giant Black Marlin), along with Costa Rica, Belize, Honduras, Guatemala, are among the finest gamefish destinations.

Frequently Asked Questions About Sportfishing Boats:

What type of yacht is best for fishing?

Although one can cast or drop a line from just about any boat, for the serious sport and tournament fisherman, a vessel designed from the ground up for the rigors of offshore fishing in many conditions and often customized to the owner’s wishes, are the best choice. There are many variations of the two basic types of sportfish boats—the Express Sportfish and the Flybridge/Convertible Sportfish. The Flybridge Sportfish boats (45ft and under) are not technically Convertibles, but distinctions are blurred as they are often marketed as such. Express Sportfish models have two decks, the main deck with helm and cockpit, accommodations below deck and tend to be smaller.

Most likely it will have a tower, but no flybridge. Examples are the Gamefisherman 50 Express, Huckins 45 Sportfisherman, Cabo Express SF. All feature large cockpits that are uncluttered and set up for fishing action and may include in-deck fish boxes, livewells, rod holders, ice machine, fighting chair, aft steering, transom “tuna” doors, tackle storage and more. Many have towers with their own steering stations, outriggers, rocket launcher rod holders, and other features. Convertible Sportfisherman are larger and most often completely custom world-class yachts for tournament and long-range fishing adventures. Examples are Michael Rybovich & Sons sportfishing yachts, Hatteras GT series, Viking Convertibles, Jim Smith, Merritt, F&S, Bertram, Custom Carolina, and many more.

What is a Convertible Sportfishing boat?

Convertible Sportfish Yachts are typically 50ft or more with enclosed living area on the main deck and a flybridge with hard top or fully enclosed, in addition to accommodations below deck, and a large cockpit with a mezzanine deck with seating for guests to watch and enjoy the action. These yachts are often a custom build that combines the luxurious amenities of a motor yacht with the proven performance hull of a sportfisher, capable of converting to a cruising yacht, if desired. They will usually have a tower for spotting gamefish and utilize the latest technological advantages and fish-finding electronics, such as Furuno’s real-time 360-degree sonar systems, Seakeeper stabilizers, pod drives, powerful diesel engines and gensets, and much more. Convertible Sportfishers are evaluated on their seakeeping ability, stability and efficiency in speed and economy. Handling and performance underway or in fishing mode are vital, as they must be able to handle all types of conditions; many have redundant systems. The cockpit needs to be well arranged for anglers and crew to do battle with big trophy gamefish!

How much does a Sportfishing Yacht cost?

How much are you willing to spend? There are too many variables with the vast array of manufacturers and builders of Sportfishing Yachts to put a single price out there. Currently the average cost to purchase a Sportfishing Yacht over 40ft in the Southeast Region of the United States is about $815,500. Sportfishing yachts tend to cost more than a cruising motor yacht of the same length because of the additional specialized equipment, electronics, and build features, especially for a custom sportfish. Convertible sportfishing yachts have both the luxury accommodations of a motor yacht and the specialized features of a high-end “fishing machine.” When considering the cost of ownership, as with any vessel, be sure to factor in dockage/storage, insurance, maintenance, fuel and other running costs, captain and crew salaries (if needed), taxes & fees, and more.

What is the best Sportfish boat?

There are so many excellent makes and models of Sportfishing boats and yachts available today that the question becomes a personal matter: Which sportfishing boat is best for you? Do you intend to enter tournaments, fish recreationally with family and friends, or pursue trophy billfish and other gamefish around the world, or for extended stays in the Bahamas? Your budget will also narrow the field or allow you to have a boat built to your specifics and uniquely reflect your style and taste. Some well-known Sportfish builders are as follows: Albemarle, American Custom Yachts (acquired by Willis Marine Inc in July 2021), BB Boats (especially built for charter use), Bertram Yacht, Bayliss Boatworks, Briggs Boatworks (Sunny Briggs), Cabo Yachts, Davis Yachts, F&S Boatworks, Gamefisherman, Garlington Landeweer, Hatteras Yachts, Henriques Yachts, Jarrett Bay, Jim Smith Boats, Paul Mann Custom Boats (retired 2021), Maverick Yachts (designed by Erwin Gerard, EG Designs and built in Costa Rica), Merritt’s Boat and Engine Works, Ritchie Howell Custom Boats, Roscioli Donzi Intl., Michael Rybovich and Sons, Scarborough Boatworks, Spencer Yachts, Viking Yachts, Weaver Boat Works, Willis Marine (just acquired ACY in Stuart, FL), Winter Custom Yachts, and new custom builder in St Augustine, FL, Vilano Boatworks--introducing a 65ft sportfish designed by noted naval architect, Erwin Gerard.

How much does a 50ft fishing boat cost?

Currently a used 2005 Ocean Yachts 50ft Super Sport is listed at $395,000 in the Florida east coast market, which is about average in the current brokerage market. Current (Aug. 2021) range in the yachting industry’s MLS is $600,000 for a 2000 Viking 50 Convertible Sport Fisher in California to a 1991 Ocean Yachts 50ft Super Sport located in Italy at $199,420. Of course, a new production or custom-built fishing boat will be much more.

What is the largest fishing yacht?

According to The Robb Report and Yachts International, the new 171ft Royal Huisman Sportfish Superyacht will be the world’s largest true sportfish yacht when it is launched. Currently under construction, the yacht will be equipped for the global pursuit of trophy gamefish such as swordfish and marlin that roam the world’s oceans, and a range of sportfishing options. Sportfishing has attracted new owners for the larger boats in recent decades and yachts with tall towers and outriggers dominate the world’s fishing grounds in South and Central America, the Indian Ocean, the Pacific Rim and New Zealand.

Some of the other sportfishing yachts that fall into the superyacht strata are Trinity Yachts 131.7 ft BAD COMPANY built in 1998 and MARY P built in the New Orleans shipyard in 2008; McMullen & Wing 119ft MEA CULPA built in 2003; Yachting Developments (New Zealand) 118.5ft 2018 LANAKAI and 99ft AL DUHAIL, world’s largest all-carbon sportfisher launched in 2020; 116ft CIELO MARE built by Townsend Bay Marine.

Russia seeking China’s help to develop Arctic shipping route – is it worth it for Beijing?

  • Moscow is keen to develop the Northern Sea Route to counteract sanctions, and is 'significantly more motivated than China'

Russia is seeking China's help in developing an Arctic sea route that could almost halve the journey time between Europe and Asia, although the heightened geopolitical risk and Moscow's suspicion about Beijing's intentions in the region may limit their scope for cooperation.

Russia hopes the Northern Sea Route (NSR) will become a year-round shipping lane as global warming makes it possible to send ships through waters that were previously only passable in summer.

Some shipping is already using the route, but at the moment it is only passable for around 20 to 30 days a year along a 5,600km stretch between the Kara Sea, off the northwest coast of Siberia, to the Bering Strait, which separates Russia from Alaska.

Do you have questions about the biggest topics and trends from around the world? Get the answers with SCMP Knowledge , our new platform of curated content with explainers, FAQs, analyses and infographics brought to you by our award-winning team.

But as more of the Arctic's ice melts, the route may eventually be extended to Scandinavia and offer easier access to the North Sea than the Baltic.

Travelling between Shanghai and St Petersburg along this route would take a cargo ship around 20 days, compared with around 36 days via the Red Sea and Suez Canal, according to Russian media.

Cargo carried along the route could reach 270 million tonnes by 2035 - a nearly 10-fold increase on 2022, according to Rosatom, the Russian agency that oversees the sea lane.

The impact of Western sanctions following its invasion of Ukraine in 2022 has increased Moscow's sense of urgency in developing and expanding its use.

Although China relies on the sea to transport more than 60 per cent of its trade by volume so the route could help offset the risk from using existing routes, Wang Yue, a doctoral researcher at Tampere University in Finland, said "Russia is significantly more motivated than China" to develop the route.

Wang, who specialises in security and geopolitics in the Arctic, said the importance the two countries attached to the route "greatly varied".

"For Russia, the Arctic region is a top strategic and economic priority, and the NSR is crucial for transporting its abundant Arctic resources to the market," he said.

"In contrast, while the Arctic is important to China, it is just one of many emerging strategic areas, and the NSR is merely a valuable alternative to traditional shipping routes."

Russia has just over half the Arctic Ocean's coastline. For a long time, particularly during the Cold War, security was its main concern in the region, although Mikhail Gorbachev introduced a series of measures to start developing its resources and boost scientific research in the last years of the Soviet Union.

But Russia remained deeply suspicious of foreign involvement in the Arctic, particularly from non-Arctic nations. It opposed granting China observer status on the Arctic Council, the main international forum for coordinating policy, until 2013.

Faced with economic isolation over its invasion of Ukraine, Russia is now turning to China for help in developing the sea route with President Vladimir Putin saying last year there were "promising" signs in this regard.

In May the two sides agreed to set up a committee to "push forward the development of the Arctic shipping route into an important international transportation corridor" and increase shipping traffic and infrastructure.

Zhao Long, a senior research fellow at the Shanghai Institutes for International Studies, said: "In the face of the deepening crisis in the Red Sea, [China] could also help explore the economic, technical and environmental viability of NSR as a 'complementary corridor' for international transportation."

In recent months shipping passing through the Red Sea en route for the Suez Canal has come under attack from Yemen's Houthi rebels in what they say is a show of support for Gaza.

The route's importance - and its vulnerability as a potential choke point - was highlighted three years ago when a ship became stuck in the canal, blocking an estimated US$9.6 billion worth of trade.

Other major sea lanes are also becoming increasingly risky.

The South China Sea, which is used by an estimated 60 per cent of global maritime trade, has seen an increase in tensions after a series of confrontations between Beijing and rival claimants, most notably the Philippines.

Chinese shipping passing through the waters has to pass through the Strait of Malacca, where a blockade could cut vital lines of communication between the Indian Ocean and the Pacific Ocean - a problem known as the Malacca dilemma.

Meanwhile in the Panama Canal, a prolonged drought has forced substantial cuts to the number of daily ship crossings that have been in force since October.

Zhao said developing the Arctic route could also boost cooperation between China and Russia in areas such as infrastructure, shipbuilding and energy exploration - but warned that the benefits for Beijing should not be overstated.

Currently the sea lane is only crossed by a relatively small number of cargo ships.

According to Rosatom, last year saw 80 transit voyages along the sea route with a total tonnage of more than 36 million tonnes. By contrast Suez saw more than 26,000 ships passing through.

Chinese firms also risk being targeted by Western efforts to tighten sanctions on Russia, including moves by the European Union to target Russian supplies of liquefied natural gas.

Last month the first Chinese shipyard - Penglai Jutal Offshore Engineering Heavy Industries, which builds and ships natural gas liquefaction technology - was sanctioned by the US over its involvement in Russian oil and gas projects.

A few days later, Wison New Energies, a Chinese engineering firm that had been providing equipment for Russia's Arctic LNG 2 project in northern Siberia, said it was suspending its operations in the country "after careful and thorough evaluation".

"These [measures] will increase the commercial risks of joint Chinese-Russian development of the NSR. Shipping and offshore companies, which build modules and engineering equipment for Russia's Arctic projects, as well as the transport companies involved in the NSR will be subjected to long-arm jurisdiction risks," Zhao said.

Wang, from Tampere University, warned there were still major hurdles to overcome in developing the route, including the harsh environment, short shipping window, the need for specialised equipment and, most critically, the lack of infrastructure.

"In theory, Chinese investment could help bridge these infrastructure gaps. However, several factors may deter Chinese investors from committing substantial funds, including China's focus on domestic economic development under the dual circulation strategy, the relatively low trade volume between China and Russia and escalating geopolitical tensions," he said.

Since Russia's invasion of Ukraine, trade between Russia and China has expanded dramatically -from US$146.9 billion in 2021 to US$240.1 billion last year - but this is dwarfed by trade with the United States, which last year stood at US$664.4 billion.

Fuel is currently the main cargo shipped through the Arctic, but Artyom Lukin, an associate professor at Far Eastern Federal University in Vladivostok, said it was unclear how interested China would be in exploiting the region's hydrocarbon resources given its goal of reaching peak emissions by 2030.

He also said the proposed new route may not resolve the Malacca dilemma because it passes through the Bering Strait, a key choke point between Russia and Alaska.

"It stands to reason that if there is a major military confrontation between the US and China, the US may just as well attempt to block the Bering Strait, denying it to Chinese shipping," Lukin said.

To avoid this risk China and Russia could instead focus on developing waterways in the continental Eurasia to link China to the Northern Sea Route via Siberia's great rivers, but this would be expensive.

"However, if realised, China and Russia will get a link connecting Asia and the Arctic Ocean, which, among other things, will be immune to US interference," Lukin said.

There are signs the two sides have made progress on the scheme since Putin's most recent visit to China in May.

Soon after, the Chinese supply chain and real estate development corporation Xiamen C&D Group agreed to help develop Russia's Baltic Sea Ust-Luga Container Terminal in the Leningrad region along with the operator Delo group, according to the news portal portseurope.com.

Meanwhile, Rosatom and Hainan Yangpu NewNew Shipping have agreed a deal to operate a year-round container line on the Northern Sea Route.

This will include a joint venture agreement to design and build ice-class container ships and jointly operate the line. Last year, NewNew Shipping made seven voyages on the Northern Sea Route, a number expected to grow to 12 this year.

The report by Ports Europe also said that Ke Jin, a Russia-based executive from NewNew, had also expressed interest in developing Russia's Barents Sea port of Arkhangelsk , the western terminus of the Northern Sea Route.

Dmitry Yurkov, the official responsible for Arctic development in the Arkhangelsk region, told Russia's Tass news agency that there had been some 40 voyages between Arkhangelsk and Shanghai this year.

In 2016, the local government signed an agreement with Beijing-based Poly Group to construct a deep-water port there in 2016, but no significant progress has been made since then.

Wang said he expected further cooperation between the two countries, "but the extent and significance remain uncertain in the foreseeable future".
