Discover the newest addition to the Central Charter’s fleet!
The Crusader is the newest addition to the Central Charter’s fleet. It is 31′ aluminum boat built by Raider Boats out of Washington. The Crusader features a spacious back deck and two 300HP outboard engines. Inside the heated cabin is comfortable seating for 6 passengers with a table for eating lunch & a berth in the bow for storing gear or taking a quick nap. There is a private restroom on board with a full size toilet, accessible from the back deck. The Crusader is outfitted with top of the line fishing gear for Halibut, and Rockfish as well as state of the art electronics and navigation for finding those secret spots where the fish hide.
The twin 300HP outboards offer a quiet fast ride, allowing your Captain to regal you with fish stories and adventures at sea. The Crusader slices through the water speeding to the fishing grounds to maximize your time with lines in the water.
We offer full day Halibut and Halibut & Rockfish combos. Your captain has been fishing the waters of Kachemak Bay, Cook Inlet and the Gulf of Alaska for many years and loves finding you the best fish possible. A fishing trip on the Crusader is sure to be a memory that will last a life time.
No experience necessary! Your captain will help you with every aspect of catching fish and having a blast at the same time!
If you join us on one of our special Wednesday half day Halibut trips, on the Bella Vita or the Crusader, the important thing to note is that there is no size restriction on your halibut limit so you are able to catch and keep two halibut of any size.
The minimum age allowed for the safety of everyone on board is 8 years old. If you have a family with members younger than 8 please call us to talk about booking a private charter for just your group. By booking a private boat the age limit is more flexible.
All the fishing gear, bait & filleting is supplied. All you need to bring is your fishing licenses, food & drink, and rain gear if you have it.
Due to the current Halibut fishing regulations there is no charter halibut fishing trips on any Wednesdays, HOWEVER, Central Charters can still offer Halibut fishing charters for you on Wednesdays. We can do this because of the Federally sponsored GAF program that allows the conversion of commercial halibut quota to sport fish quota. Please give us a call for a more in-depth explanation. The short version is we can legally take you halibut fishing on Wednesdays, come fish with us!
2024 halibut regulations; two halibut per person per day with no annual limit. Each day you can retain one halibut of any size and one halibut that is 28 inches (in overall length) or less. No Halibut fishing on Wednesdays (unless you go Halibut fishing with Central Charters on one of our special two fish any size, Wednesday half day halibut trips).
