About The Katfish

The Katfish is a custom built True World Marine TE-288. It is 30 feet long and every foot of it is fishable.

The beam is a comfortable 9.5 feet. It provides plenty of comfortable seating and protection from the elements.

Although there is an indoor cabin for your convenience, you can walk around the boat and drag a large cooler behind you.

Every detail of the boat was designed to make her the absolute best charter boat for inshore fishing.

To attest to these claims come see 4 others that are parked in my marina that were purchased after a trip on the Katfish.

Considering that they only build about 6 boats a year, this is quite remarkable.
