38' - Pursuit

38' - Pursuit

38' Ricky Scarbrough Boat Based in Kona. Charter Prices are per boat (Maximum 6 people) and include rods, reels, tackle bait, soft drinks and snacks.

The Pursuit is a lovely 38 foot Ricky Scarbrough air-conditioned boat. The Pursuit was hand built in North Carolina specifically for sport fishing and was fully refurbished in 2010 with new engines, electronics, transmissions, generator, wiring and plumbing. The Pursuit is one of the faster boats in Kona, cruising at 28 knots with a top-end of 34 knots. It’s a perfect Kona ‘day boat’ with options for over night trips.

The boat is captained by Jason Holtz, who is a fourth generation marlin captain who was born and raised here in Kona. After college Jason was a deckhand for renowed skippers like Marlin and Randy Parker. He then chased marlins around the world for 4 years in 10 countries from Brazil to Madeira to Central America.

Captain Jason is the ONLY captain in the world to have caught a Grandeur (1000 pound fish) in every ocean! Jason is now back in Hawaii, ready to take you out to get that big fish. Having years of experience and his great boat "Pursuit" you will be in for a great day fishing the "Grounds" near Kona.
