The RI charter fishing boat Snappa, is a 46' sport fishing boat built in 2008 by the Wesmac Custom Boat Co in Surry, Maine. She is U.S. Coast Guard inspected and is licensed to carry up to 21 passengers, sailing out of Pt. Judith, RI. Its superior hull design makes it one of the most comfortable and seaworthy RI party/charter fishing boats operating in the southern New England charter fishing boat industry. Snappa cruises at 16 knots and faster when needed.
From the moment you approach “Snappa”, you will observe unique features that separate her from other RI charter boats. The sparkling hull, custom designed boarding steps, and enormous cockpit, will immediately impress you. The mahogany trimmed cabin with its 6’3”ceiling height and comfortable seating for 14 passengers which includes a 4 seat dinette is next on the list. Twenty nine custom built rods with Penn reels hang from the ceiling ready to catch any fish that swims within striking distance. On the bridge you’ll find the latest in electronics with everything in duplicate.
