Alaska Fishing Yachts

M/V Huntress

M/V Huntress

‘The 60’ Huntress is a state of the art boat made completely for doing nothing else but exploring remote SE Alaska for weeks on end with plenty of room for up to 6 passengers plus crew with 5 staterooms. Made of all fiberglass, and maintained impeccably by the previous owner, she’s well-equipped for long range cruising and sports a massive salon in the wheelhouse for 365 degree viewing as you’re chugging along the Inside Passage of SE Alaska.

Imagine waking in the morning, in the back of a secluded, remote, pristine cove, all alone, sipping your coffee on the back deck, breathing in clean salt scented air, and having the difficult task of deciding what to do today. As you think to yourself, after we pick up the crab or shrimp pots we put out last night, do I want to go fly fishing for salmon, trout or steelhead or do I want to go mooch for salmon or jig for halibut in the salt. Maybe I’ll play with some codlies in the kelp. Or, I guess I could just take a bunch of pictures and go back and take a nap. So many decisions, but you have all week to fit it in.

Captain and Crew

The Huntress will be crewed by Captain Bruce Gipple and/or Captain Ron Bowman, with Joey Zimmerman running as first mate. Capt Ron and Joey both love to cook, and will be fighting to serve you gourmet meals. Sitka has been Bruce Gipple’s guiding territory for decades and he knows it intimately.
