Our Boat

Our boat is surveyed for up to 45 passengers, but we cap the numbers at 20 for fishing – this means that there is plenty of room for everybody aboard Norseman.

Featuring a fully air-conditioned saloon and bridge, a licensed bar, an entertainment centre,  as well as an expansive rear deck with sportfishing platform, and upstairs sun lounges –our boat will ensure you will spend more time actually fishing by taking you quickly and comfortably to the best fishing playgrounds Port Douglas and the far north has to offer.  The sport fishing platform comes into its own when big fish bite!

Our experienced and knowledgeable boat crew are passionate about fishing. Norseman will provide you with custom built rods and reels, or handlines to fish with.
At 60 feet and weighing 30 tonne, Norseman is a big boat that can handle rough sea conditions with ease.
