About Your Boat

“WILD THING” is a nicely laid-out vessel with 3 staterooms, 2 heads, and a separate stall shower in each. She boasts a large galley with upgraded Custom Corian Countertops, under-counter Sub-Zero refrigeration, Glass Top Cooktop, and Microwave. There is a dinette on port adjacent to the galley that will seat four.

The salon is open and light with large windows providing excellent views. She has a very large L-settee with a high-low teak table that folds out (ideal for card games). Custom Flexi-teak in the cockpit, cap-rail and bow-pulpit really adds another touch of elegance. She comes complete with side scanning sonar and the latest navigation technology. Wild Thing is most certainly an above average offshore bluewater sportsfisher. The vessel has always been maintained to very high standards by her longtime owner. Sure to impress even the most fastidious angler.

We went out Saturday 7/10/19 and had a great trip on a 4 pack. 4 people and about 23 kept with many more released. Captain Chris was great on the boat and Nick was great with the setup

Nick and his crew made the trip fantastic. My daughter and I went out on the 6 hour trip. It was a perfect day. Good fishing, good weather, and a good crew. There was plenty of room on the boat for 6 passengers and the crew of 3. The boat was clean and had a decent size bathroom. Trevor and Steve, Captain Nick's left and right hand guys, were on the ball. They made sure everyone had fresh bait and helped land the fish into the boat. Their patience was incredible as they also worked to untangle fishing lines when necessary. My daughter was the only girl and everyone made her feel welcome and comfortable. She caught the 1st fish of the day :) By the time we arrived back at the dock, our fish were cleaned and ready to cook. (Thanks Trevor) I've been on the "group" fishing boats before and this private charter was more enjoyable. The price included reels, bait, drinks, snacks, and lots of attention by the crew. By the time you add up the extras that you have to pay for on the group boats, this private charter of 6 was a great value in comparison. We will definitely be seeing Nick and his crew again. My daughter could not stop talking about what a fun day she had.

We had a great time. Nick has good customer service skills, combined with Clint’s obvious knowledge of the water and fish, and Trevor is going to be very successful in the industry as well. I really enjoyed being around them all. We caught some good fish, halibut, sand bass, and Bonita. The price is right and the service is as good as any.
