BVO fishing is the proud owner of two amazing offshore fishing vessels. Most offshore trips will utilize “Jim Buoy”, a 47 foot Custom Carolina Sportfish Yacht, built by multi-generational yacht builder Bobby Sullivan and finished by Phil Jones of Maryland. Powered by twin Caterpillar C 12 Diesel turbocharged engines, the vessel cruises at a fast and steady 23 knot cruise, burning roughly 50 gallons per hour. Having been built by legendary yacht builders from North Carolina, the ride on the vessel is the softest and smoothest you will find. Custom Carolina boats are built to handle the most perilous nautical conditions that our country has to offer, and “Jim Buoy” is a perfect example of how well these boats shine down here in Florida where our conditions tend to be a little more inviting than the Carolina Coastline. “Jim Buoy” has all of the accommodations you would expect on a modern day Sportfishing yacht, including an air conditioned helm area, and cabin, a private head with vacuum flush toilet, ice machine, freezer, fighting chair, and bean bag chairs for those long rides to the fishing grounds. Equipped with 950 gallons of fuel, nothing is out of range or too far. Captain Jimmy goes on to elaborate on his excitement for the new boat...
“I picked the boat up in Maryland, 90 miles up the Chesapeake, and made our way down to Rudee Inlet, VA. The first few days of fishing on “Jim Buoy” out of Rudee Inlet, VA Beach consistently produced a healthy yellowfin tuna bite. We brought home lots of meat each trip and got a good feel for how the vessel operates. The Caterpillar C12 diesels produce a hum and tune that is sure to raise plenty of fish, and we plan to continue offering that experience to clients in Florida. We have been fine tuning the boat for months now and feel like we have the tools to give you a first class fishing experience."
We are grateful to be able to provide clients with a luxury first class fishing experience no matter which vessel you choose.
