About Rapid Fisher

The Boat

Built by BW Seacat, with skipper Paul working along side throughout, Rapid Fisher features a full walk-round Island wheelhouse with a raised deck forward, allowing full use of the 30 metres of available gunwhale space for angling.

Powered by a pair of 320Hp Nanni Diesels, she has a sprint speed of 29 knots and comfortable cruising speed of anywhere between 18/20 knots in any weather conditions. This means more time fishing and less time travelling!!!

Rapid Fisher fully complies with the Maritime and Coastguard Agency's "Code of Practice" for operation up to 60 NM from a safe haven, day or night and is licensed to carry 12 passengers plus crew.

As you would expect from a modern charter boat there is a deck entry toilet as well as a heated cabin. A fully fitted galley ensures that there are plenty of hot drinks available throughout the day.

The Skipper

Skipper, Paul Smith, is a qualified Yacht Master Offshore & a member of the Professional Boatmans Association.

Paul has been fishing for as long as he can remember in the waters around Poole and enjoyed great catches of mid channel bass on his various private boats. Five years ago he decided to pursue his love of fishing & became a full time charter skipper of his first boat, a 38ft Venom (which he built in his back garden!).

The business grew at a rate of knots (no pun intended) & he took the decision in 2010 to go for a catamaran. He specialises in fishing mid channel deep water wrecks for hard fighting conger, bass, cod & pollock as well as fishing inshore for the summer run of black bream & rays.
