2019 Season. Blue Makaira is currently undergoing her winter maintenance and will be back in the water in early May ready for our clients to start fishing from mid-May. If you have not booked then please email info@atlanticbluemarlin.com to secure your dates.

Madeira offered some great fishing over the 2017 & 2018 season with good catches of Blue Marlin. Blue Makaira’s average weight of Blue Marlin recorded at 570lbs for 2017 and just over 650lbs for 2018 so we are in high hope for a good 2019 season. With some 100kg+ Big Eye and Yellow Fin Tuna thrown into the variety of the catch it should be a productive year. Madeira also had a few Blue Fin Tuna for 2018, so we should hope for an increase in their number for 2019.

Blue Makaira recorded the highest catch of Blue Marlin of all of the islands charter boats for 2018 and 2017, and recorded a win of the 32nd Blue Marlin World Cup in 2016 with a fish of 983lbs (446kg).

Blue Makaira

Flying the Red Ensign ‘Blue Makaira’ is a 34ft sport fishing boat manufactured by Rodman and powered by two 260hp Volvo engines.

The Rodman 10.40 is a very seaworthy boat, with a hull construction that is second to none. To our added advantage the hull produces a great sound signature that pulls fish up and the crew maintain this advantage with regular hull and prop cleaning.

‘Blue Makaira’ is equipped with the latest generation Navonics systems from Raymarine and is importantly equipped with the latest, and best, fish finder, a 2Kw Chirp Sounder.

She was built in 2006, and has been converted to allow for the greatest comfort for our customers, in the cool main cabin there is very comfortable seating with great views of the rear deck and the lures being trolled.

For your further comfort, there is a WC, wash facilities and a fridge that is always well stocked with soft drinks, water, beer and snacks for the day.

On board there are two fixed video cameras and a number of GoPro’s recording the action on the rear deck, stern view and underwater. Catches that are recorded will be put on a USB thumb drive and presented to you as a memento.

If you are interested, in the cabin is a 16” screen displaying the output of the echo sounder.
