Finest Kind is a custom built 29′ Ricky Scarborough. This boat was hand built by one of the greatest boat builders in North Carolina and is Ricky’s 1st hull! So when you step aboard you’re on a piece of North Carolina boat building history. What makes this boat special is her design. She sports the North Carolina “flare” which is the signature of builders in that region. This design incorporates a wide beam and what looks like the bow flare of an aircraft carrier which serves to push waves out and away from the hull. And with her glass over wood construction she rides like nothing else in her class.
A dependable Cummins diesel engine gets you out to the fising grounds while sipping fuel. This is what allows us to be able to keep our prices low! And with two VHF radios, all the USCG required safety equipment and a suite of Furuno electronics you can be sure that we are safe while the fish are not!
Finest Kind is licensed to carry up to four passengers for fishing trips. But 2-3 is really most comfortable. Remember, we specialize in small parties where you get a lot of hands-on experience!
Captain Norm is a great fishing guide! I’ve lost count of how many fish he’s helped me catch. If you’re lucky enough to be onboard his boat be prepared for an exciting fishing trip and a good sense of humor!
