"We've had 'Opah' for about 6 months now, she is running well, stable at rest, punches into a head sea with ease, the crew are spoilt. Fuel consumption is good, under 40Lph over a working day, 100Lph cruising at 18kn unloaded and about 130Lph at 18kn with full live tanks, 52 crates and 150 pots on the deck.
Great hull design by Global Marine Design. After sales service from Tim and the boys at Fine Entry has been great, outstanding in fact.
Thanks Tim, Michelle and and all the crew at Fine Entry Marine, I'm a happy boy."
"In the fishing charter industry, having a mother ship as a base of operation in the most remote and wildest destinations takes the business to the next level. When Sport Fishing PNG decided it was time to upgrade the company's services, a mothership was definately the right way to go. After seeing K20 in person, the team was awestruck and could only imagine the possibilities. Once in our hands, we knew we had made the right decision. K20 is spacious in both passenger and equipment terms, as we are able to take up to 10 anglers and stack up 4 tenders on the top deck.
Sport Fishing PNG always bring clients to the most remote destinations and we are always met with extreme conditions, may it be weather, tidal rivers, shallow sand banks and other extremes mother nature can throw at us, but K20 takes it all in stride. With a 1.5 metre draft, we are able to bring the mothership into the densest jungle rivers where water levels get as low as 4 metres. Being an aluminium catamaran, the stability and manoeuvrability is unmatched even while in the roughest of seas."
K20 is based at Port Moresby and the team fishes from the most western point f the country to the farthest reaches of the eastern point of Papua New Guinea, just to reach the destination, then proceeds to work for up to 3 weeks before returning to Port Moresby. It is a true workhorse, and we love it. If a fine vessel like K20 can take the extreme conditions of Papua New Guniea, you can rest assured that all boats that Fine Entry Marine builds can handle the rest of the world with ease.
