Rumour that Poole’s fastest is True Blue

The latest Cheetah has been delivered to Steve Porter, owner and skipper of charter company True Blue. Steve returned to his childhood fishing grounds from Poole following twenty years and an impressive country count charter fishing and angling in locations including Florida, Shetlands, Northern Ireland, India and the Mediterranean.

‘She is by far, the fastest angling charter boat in Poole. Anglers love her. I Love her.

Her top speed is in excess of 30 knots and the modern design of the boat ensures a comfortable soft ride that is second to none. At tick-over, the engines are barely audible and the lack of noise, particularly when drift fishing wrecks, ensures that the fish are not spooked.'

True Blue 4 is an 11.2m Cheetah which has been built to conform to MCA category 2 for operation day and night, up to 60 miles from a safe haven. Steve will continue to run trips to Alderney and the channel as well as inshore trips around Christchurch Bay. She is licensed for up to 12 passengers and 2 crew.

True Blue boasts top speeds in excess of 30 knots powered by twin 250hp Honda outboards. Getting customers to the offshore wrecks at speeds of 20 knots with good fuel economy when cruising between 3500 and 4000rpm.

As a mark of credibility as one of the best charter anglers on the south coast, Steve is sponsored by Snowbee. He is as passionate about angling as his first childhood days fishing the shoreline around Purbeck and Poole and with such a varied experience, you can be assured that Steve will do his best to give you a memorable day.
