Our Boat

40ft O’Brien ‘Reel Easy’

Our vessel ‘Reel Easy’ is a purpose built 40ft flybridge gamefisher and is perfect for small groups to fish and live-aboard on the Great Barrier Reef. She is fast, super maneuverable and will get you to the reef in comfort allowing more time to fish! Built in Townsville and designed specifically for fishing the Great Barrier Reef our O’Brien has twin 425hp Cummins electronic turbo diesel engines giving her a comfortable cruise speed of 20-22knts.

Downstairs hosts the saloon for dining and relaxing in the shade, a galley where all meals are prepared, bathroom with toilet/shower (hot and cold water) and sleeping cabin for 4. Upstairs is where the captain drives the ship and boasts an excellent spread of electronics to ensure safe travel to and from the fishing grounds. Reel Easy also has a ‘Tuna Tower’ with a driving station. The tower hosts a full spread of electronics and gives the captain unparallel vision when navigating around the reef, spotting schools of baitfish and trolling for sportfish.

Reel Easy is the ideal vessel for our popular live-aboard extended charters comfortably sleeping 4 guests + 2 crew. She can carry enough fuel and water for up to 7 days at sea and has excellent freezer capacity for carrying bait and storing fish on extended trips. 

With a spacious back fishing deck and full size outward opening transom door to pull in the big ones, Reel Easy really is a fisherman’s heaven! And for the sport/popper fisho she has a fantastic casting area on the foredeck with high bow rails for safety. With her great maneuverability, chasing down marlin or GT’s around the reef is a breeze.
