From this year (2022) Manta Ray will be based in Mylor, Falmouth during the Bluefin Tuna fishing season from August to December. We are pleased to announce that we have been accepted on to the C.H.A.R.T programme, our skipper and crew are fully trained in the safe and correct handling of Bluefin Tuna. Read more about the British Bluefin fishery here.
The Boat is fully equipped with outriggers and all the necessary equipment to catch these magnificent fish.
Manta Ray is a 10.6 metre Swiftcat built to comply with the MCA category 2. and is fully certified to operate up to 60 miles from a safe haven.
The hull was developed in South Africa and is assisted with Hydra-Foils. This combined with being powered by twin F300B Yamaha outboard engines enables her to achieve speeds in excess of 45 knots, and cruise at 35 kts.
