The Razorbill

the 'razorbill 3' is an aquastar 33 built and set up specifically for charter fishing.the 'razorbill 3' is stuarts forth aquastar 33 and this must say somethig for the sea keeping and safety they offer. she is powered by an iveco 320hp and cruises around 13knts. she has seating inside and out of the heated wheelhouse as well as a tiolet and red hot kettle. on deck there is ample room for up to 10 people although we are priced for up to 8 to give you that extra room for you money. the decks are flush (no engine hatch in the way) although there is a seating/ bait island at the stern. back in the wheelhouse there are the usual electronics and fish finding equiptment including most importanly your skipper stuart.

stuart has been running charter boats scince the 1980's and gain a good name in the late 80's and early 90's for his big catches of cod from the offshore wrecks as well as the general fishing trips. he is the station officer of mersea coast gaurd and was coxwain of the life boat for many years previously to that. so rest assured your in safe hands. after starting with dingy's and smaller wooden boats stuart got into full on charter fishing in the 80's.He had a wooden boat called the 'Crusader' then another wooden vessel called the 'Researcher' which he ran successfully for years untill like most others he opted for a faster and more modern boat called the 'Deva' a 33ft Aquastar. He ran this for a few years getting a very good name for himself when he was getting some huge hits of cod from the wrecks out of Mersea after this he ran the 'Silver Lady' another Aquastar he cotinued to run this for several years untill he was forced to give up the job he loved.

after a break of a couple of years when he concentrated on course fishing due to his own love of the sport and his then three young sons Stuart perchased another boat the 'Razorbill' so that they could go fishing.for a few years he and his sons fished whenever they could just for pleasure.but now the boys are older and have got their own boats and Stuart has grown older and has returned to charter fishing and has set the Razorbill 3 up specifically with this in mind.
