About the boat - THE RIVER ROCKET

THE RIVER ROCKET is a 5.8 metre Fishing Charter Boat, built be SUBSEE Explorer Pty Ltd of Cairns, Australia. She is a 20 foot flat-bottom punt, especially designed and built for the smooth waters of the estuaries and rivers systems of Far North Queensland.

Three of the latest additions to her include Garmin colour sounder & GPS, and she is powered by a fuel-injected four-stroke 140hp Suzuki Outboard.

Part of the design plan is to utilize all space available, not only for the fishing equipment and safety equipment but also give plenty of room to move around the boat for that 'prize catch' whilst putting less stress on the equipment and the fish.

She has a carpeted floor which is easy on your feet, no shoes required, but easy cleaned at the end of the day fresh and ready for tomorrow's adventures.

The two built in live-bait tanks keep the selection of bait fresh as a smorgasbord to tempt our saltwater species.

To keep the heat of the sun at bay, a canopy covers approximately 3/4 of the boat yet the front 1/4 of the boat is not covered, this allows room for the lure fisherman to move when lure fishing.
