Saltwater Sportsman voted the Carolina Classic #25 in their list of best all time sport fishing boats in the world! In a separate review Marlin Magazine noted the Carolina Classic is built with fiberglass and fir stringers because that's what gives the solid as a rock construction and best rated smooth ride in its class. Constructed to withstand rough offshore conditions, the Carolina Classic is "a liner boat," builder Mac Privott says. The cuddy, helm and all cabinetry are glassed in solid to the stringers and hull, forming a one-piece boat that takes pounding with no rattles and no creaking.

Carolina Style fishes with top-of-the-line Penn and Shimano equipment. We purchase all of our gear from East Side Bait and Tackle in Washington, NC. Give Richard Gerard a call at 252-946-2186 for all your fishing gear and supplies and tell him Carolina Style sent you.

Note: Please keep in mind when selecting a charter for your family that we have comfortable and convenient inside seating with both heating and A/C which comes in very handy when you want to enjoy a comfortable day fishing and the weather isn't cooperating. We also have an enclosed head (toilet) which is not always available on smaller boats. These are extremely important things to consider before you get in a bad situation with the family staring at you asking what they are supposed to do!
