Queensland’s North Queensland coast is famous for its black marlin fishery – and offers anglers two very different fishing options and black marlin fishing seasons.
Firstly, the Giant Black Marlin Season off Cairns, which is recognized world-wide as THE number one place to catch a 1000lb black marlin, with the season running annually from late September to early December. And for the juvenile black marlin (baby black marlin) – light tackle fun annually off both Cairns and Townsville (Cape Bowling Green) from July through September.
KEKOA was custom built for black marlin fishing in these water by well-known local Townsville boat builder Peter O’Brien of O’Brien Boats. And Peter O’Brien and his team have once again delivered a vessel that provides a world class fishing experience, as well as integrating a comfortably accommodating luxurious personal charters that can easily cater to more far reaching destinations.
This brand new vessel, a 56 foot O’Brien was launched in March 2010 and features state of the art electronics and luxurious furnishings including two ensuited guest cabins as well as separate cabins for the captain and crew. Fully air-conditioned throughout the added beam of the 56 foot vessel allows for a very spacious saloon and entertaining area — as well as a second entertaining area on the flybridge.
