All of our vessels meet the National Standard for Commercial Vessels (NSCV) and are in survey for 2C as well as 2D class, meaning we are compliant to charter in the bay and offshore. We take pride in maintaining our vessels to the highest standard with engines serviced every 100 hours and thorough checks made annually by Marine Safety Victoria.
Built to fish and fitted out with all the bells and whistles, Reel Time only use the best when it comes to fishing gear and sonar equipment. Safety equipment is above and beyond Marine Safety standards including life jackets, flares, radio's and full LED lighting. The vessels have a very stable deck area with plenty of fishing room and although we mainly cater to small groups of up to 10 people, you can book more than one boat to fulfil larger group bookings.
Reel Time #1
Inshore Capacity 8 people Offshore Capacity 6 people Plumbed Toilet YES
First launched in 2008, Reel Time #1 is a 7.4m aluminium Sea Tamer 'Eliminator' powered by twin Honda 135hp four stroke outboards. The engines are whisper quiet with huge torque to propel the large loads that you can expect with a boat load of customers. The top end speed of 70kmh at 5800rpm, with a full boat gives us the capability of fast travel to where the action is, providing customers more fishing time in productive waters.
Reel Time #2
Inshore Capacity 10 people Offshore Capacity 10 people Plumbed Toilet YES
Purchased in 2011, Reel Time #2 is a 9.1m fibreglass Clayton 'Gallant' powered by a top of the range Volvo diesel inboard with new common rail technology, meaning NO smoke or fumes that used to be synonymous with diesel engines. The "Barrel Buster" easily cruises at 30 knots making it one of the fastest charter boats of it's size!
