Our Vessels

Frontier Fishing Charters has four fishing boats, all custom designed and purpose built to provide superior fishing adventures, in the remote, far northern waters of the Gulf of Carpentaria. Our Weipa fishing mothership is the Kerra Lyn. A 65 foot (19.95m) steel hulled vessel, which was specifically set-up to provide comfortable, extended voyages at sea. We’ve got three fishing tenders, which are fully equipped to provide you with awesome adventures in a fishing paradise. Our vessels are crewed by experienced, qualified fishing guides, who will put you in the right place, at the right time.


Three tenders fully equipped with GPS, sounders and side scans. Comfortable and perfect for fishing.

More Info


The Kerra Lyn was built in 1987. She served the Queensland Government for patrol, research and environmental work, across the Great Barrier Reef and Torres Strait Islands, until 2014.

Able to accommodate up to 9 guests and 4 crew on extended charters (self-sufficient up to a month at a time), the Kerra Lyn is equipped to provide comfort and stability for guests.

There’s 6 cabins with 2 single beds in each, as well as a bench. All cabins are air-conditioned and have fans. The exterior decks are perfect for fishing and/or relaxing, with a rear and upper deck.

The air-conditioned interior has a galley and two large dining tables, as well as a large screen TV. For your peace of mind, there’s many extra safety features, that exceed industry requirements.

The Kerra Lyn’s tackle room is packed with the latest rods, reels and tackle, for you to use. Please keep in mind, any equipment lost or broken, must be replaced.


We’ve got three (3) mean fishing tenders, which provide the perfect base for day trip excursions.

Two of the tenders are Pioneers 18’6 American built. These fishing boats are soft riding stable fishing platforms, and custom built for this style of operation. Powered by 135 hp Hondas, they get you fishing sooner.

The third vessel is a fibreglass 6.8 metre cyclone. Built in Australia, this beast is powered by a 250 hp Honda and doesn’t leave much to the imagination.

Our tenders are the right size and shape to access creeks and tidal river streams, drains, flats and offshore.

While they are built for fishing, your comfort has not been forgotten, with padded seating and stable fishing platforms. These tenders are in immaculate condition and have GPS navigation, the latest Hummingbird side scan and much more.
