After more than 27 years resident on the north coast of Haida Gwaii we know a little about the boats required to fish BC’s northernmost waters. Two years ago we custom designed a new fishing vessel built by the folks at Broadwater Industries in Prince Rupert. This prototype proved to be the ideal fishing vessel for us. Stable, smooth riding, fast and incredibly roomy, the new design is a hit. We added two more for the 2017 season and for 2018 we refined it to two slightly different versions.
The 90-Series boats are like the original three with a fully-covered, walk around centre console, built-in head facility forward and ample space for the guide and up to 4 anglers. The 80-Series boats are identical but feature an enclosed, walk around, centre cabin – offering additional shelter and comfort. These are really well-designed fishing machines with lots of room to move around and play the fish. For the 2019 season we’ll have 5 vessels in the 90-Series and 3 in the 80-Series. We’ll be retiring some of our older boats and we’re thrilled to introduce these awesome new machines into our fleet.
These 25-foot welded aluminum vessels are each hand built to our specifications. They comfortably fish up to 4 anglers plus the guide. We’ve outfitted them with Mercury’s 300 hp Verado engine to provide ample power and excellent ocean fishing performance. Set up with state of the art electronics, Scotty downriggers and our premium tackle, the QCL Broadwater is a true north coast fishing machine!
