Our Boats

Kelley’s Hero Charters operates two 11m South Boats Catamarans: Kelley’s Hero III and Kelley’s Hero IV. These vessels were built on the Isle of Wight, and were designed and built for our local Solent Sea Conditions. Both vessels are around 5m wide, which means there is ample deck space for our anglers, and are licenced for 12 passengers; however, for your comfort we recommend no more than 8 anglers.

Our average cruising speed on both vessels is 18–20 knots which means we can get you to the fishing grounds as safely and as comfortable as possible.

Kelley’s Hero III and Kelley’s Hero IV are both coded to MCA Category 2, and are licensed to carry 12 passengers, and 2 crew. This means that we have all the relevant safety equipment on board and we are inspected annually to make sure that we maintain these standards.

Kelley’s Hero III is an 11m South Catamaran with twin 330hp Iveco Turbo Charged Diesel engines. She has a top speed of 26 knots and a cruising speed of 18 knots. The boat is fully coded to MCA CAT 2, and is licensed to carry 12 passengers.

Both boats are equipped with modern equipment such as:

There is also a kettle on board each boat for your endless supply of tea and coffee; all we ask is that you bring the biscuits. There is a toilet on board each boat which provides you with peace of mind throughout your day.
