Our Charter Boats & Tackle

Homer Charter Boat - Red Ryder

Red Ryder is a custom-built, 34-foot charter boat, which is strongly constructed to withstand the rigors of Alaska. She is very fast, and her sharp hull is designed to ride comfortably through rough seas, resulting in less travel time (more fishing time) and more comfort for you. With plenty deck space, cabin space, amenities and safety features that exceed regulations, Red Ryder is at the top of her class! She is also specifically configured for motor-assisted, drift-only fishing, which makes her truly unique among all Homer charter boats.
