Looking for a great Alaska Fishing Charter? You’ve found it with CAC!
You’ll cruise in style and comfort aboard the Saltery “C,” a 40′ Bayliner Explorer Motoryacht designed for extended overnight fishing, cruising, and recreation. Over several years of service, many additions and upgrades have been applied that have enhanced the overall experience for our guests. The latest upgrades occurred in Spring of 2004 with a 38″ underhull extension that replaces the swimstep and has increased the vessels’ performance noticeably. A fiberglass top was also installed over the fishing cockpit, to keep folks dry and out of the elements, a real advantage in this rainforest environment.
Below decks on this Alaska fishing charter boat are a new 6.5 kw generator was installed in the Spring of 2003, and the repowering of the main engines back in 1998 with twin Cummins 270hp diesels has provided years of reliability to go with the increased speed. Fully outfitted with Furuno navigational / fish finder / GPS / radar equipment, along with the latest computer navigation systems, enables us to ply the waters with confidence in search of fishing and cruising adventures. We also supply all the saltwater Penn / Shimano / Garcia saltwater rods & reels, along with the latest ‘n greatest tackle, and locally available baits.
Stepping inside from the fishing cockpit you’re in main salon where you’ll find it’s warm and comfortable with a 360 degree view while dining and cruising. To the starboard side is the lower helm station and aft of that is the entertainment center complete with TV, DVD/VHS player along with CD sound system. Forward and down 3 steps is the galley that provides a compact yet very functional workstation for the marvelous meals by our onboard Chef/Stewardess. Across from the galley is the Chef’s quarters and adjacent head (lavatory) and tub/shower.
Moving forward you find the 4 oversized bunks, 32″ x 78″ (bigger than bunks on most 50′ – 60′ yachts) that are comfortable and roomy…..the lower ones more so. Plenty of room is found underneath and to the side of the bunks for gear and luggage, There is another head (lavatory) forward as well. For additional guests, we lower the dinette table and install the fitted cushions for a queen size bunk for two.
Topside is the upper helm station and main navigation and steering station and Captain’s quarters. The 15 cu. ft. freezer along with storage of gear is topside to port and aft of lounge seating. The view from enclosed topside is marvelous and a favorite spot to photograph and chat with the Captain while underway.
