As one of the largest boats in the Hatteras charter fleet, the Predator is a 57′ custom Carolina boat built by Leonard Rigsbee and powered by twin Cummins Diamond diesel motors. Enjoy the short, comfortable ride to the fishing grounds in the spacious air conditioned salon that is equipped with a TV/VCR/DVD combo and satellite radio. Heat up a snack in the microwave/convection oven or toaster and bring along a few of your favorite K-cups to put in the Keurig.
The large cockpit is outfitted with a teak Release Marine fighting chair and two smaller companion chairs. Top of the line Shimano Tiagra reels mounted on custom rods handle the majority of our trolling. Lighter Shimano TLD setups are deployed when sailfish and white marlin are in the area along with a set of Penn reels on ugly sticks for bailing dolphin. Shimano Torium 30s on Cedros rods are used for jigging tuna, jacks, grouper, tile and other bottom fish.
The boat is equipped with Furuno radar, navigation and fish finding electronics. With your safety in mind, we are fully compliant with USCG regulations for carrying up to six passengers to the Gulf Stream.
