Whitby's only TWIN ENGINED charter boat. She is Whitby's most popular, powerful and fastest angling boat winning more angling competitions and daily prizes over the last 30 years than any other boat in Whitby. Sponsored by the top name in sea angling "SHIMANO" Shy Torque III is the best known of all the charter boats in Whitby and probably the North East coast and has a track record second to none.


The boat is fully licensed and insured and has a code of practice "Category 2 " with the RYA allowing us to travel up to 60 miles. (Please ask to see certificate if required) Only a handful of Whitby charter boats hold this category of license and insurance. If you sail beyond the boats designated area of work, then the insurance for that boat (which covers you as an angler) does become null and void. It's a good idea to check in case of any eventualities!!!
For your best chances of a great days fishing from Whitby the Shy Torque III is your best option by far. If you want to book the boat as a club we do a special rate for teams of 8 or less. Please ensure that you have the full money for the places you have booked (whether it be full boat or individual bookings) as we will have been turning people away on the strength of your booking.

Next year’s dates have now been sorted for the competitions here at Whitby in 2018
The Spring competition dates are April 7th to April 22nd INC. Big cash prizes!!
The Summer competition dates are June 23rd to July 15th INC Get yourselves a trip booked to have a chance of winning a prize worth up to £5000.00 in pound notes!!
The late Summer competition dates are September 15th to September 30th INC You can book any places as from now. 07733 233352. 01947 603472.

When you consider that some of the other charter boats in Whitby are charging on average around £50.00 for a day’s fishing (this includes the slow boats!) then the £53.00 that we charge for individuals for the day is more than worth it. We can give you so much more time fishing than the others!!! Plus with the added advantage of staying completely DRY in wet conditions.

The boat is just under 40ft in length and fitted with the "Islander" style wheelhouse. There is oodles of space per angler (unlike some of the boats in Whitby) as we can fish right around the boat from stem to stern! The "ANGLERS CABIN" also ensures that you can arrive at the fishing areas DRY and arrive back home DRY. There are no other charter boats in Whitby (in our size range) that can offer a full team TOTAL cover like we can.
REMEMBER, if you are paying less than what we charge there WILL be a reason for it!!! Individuals are welcome on the boat. Gift vouchers are available for trips every year and would make an excellent gift / birthday / Xmas present.
The full 2018 tide table for Whitby is now available. Please call for details or visit the site.
"We are totally committed in providing an unrivaled service every day we sail"

About the Skipper:

Started going to sea with my Dad when I was just 5 years of age !! Started working as a charter skipper full time at the age of 18. Over 40 years experience at sea!! This is my full time job ( not just working on weekends ) working every day the weather permits 12 months of the year. I have been working as a charter skipper longer than any other charter skipper in Whitby. Over the last 25 years we have won more angling competitions than any other boat in Whitby ! Very proud of the boat keeping her in immaculate condition at all times. We also have a crewman when we are taking newcomers to the sea angling game. Both Adam (my son) and myself will be there to assist you throughout the day to try and make your day as enjoyable as possible.

You are welcome to give me a ring to discuss your trips anytime between 8AM & 8PM.
Look forward to sailing with you soon. Rich.

  • 5-star Haydn Geldard (04/11/2017)

    Excellent as always. Rich shows his experience when he has taken us out. each trip he doesn't disappoint and never has, Always made our lines fish heavy, my partner Janine had the heaviest of the day. was tempted to push her overboard but relised we couldnt shout MAN overboard!! :). Anyway to cut a long story short Rich Ward is highly recommended by myself and my friends alike

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks Haydn. Really pleased you and Janine enjoyed your day. Fingers crossed for similar fishing next time. Thanks for the top tip with the car too mate. Much appreciated!! All the best to you.
    Rich.

  • 5-star Craig Giddings (04/11/2017)

    Rich has got to be the best skipper in Whitby (if not the UK in my opinion) I have been going with rich for going on 10years not and have never had a bad day. Went out with rich on sat and yet had a free at days fishing started on a few wreks to start with with not much success so moved on to rough ground where the fish came thick and fast no monsters but good sport all the same.

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks very much Craig. Always nice to know you're being appreciated for the hard work. It was a very good day indeed. Nice to see that amount of Cod again. Long may it continue!
    Rich.

  • 5-star Paul Cookson (20/06/2017)

    Cracking days fishing Rich, with lots of good sized cod to 8lb and ling to 14lb. Son Lee caught the biggest fish and it's the best day he's ever had!! We'll be back!!

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks very much Paul. Yes, considering the sea was a bit lively it turned in to a great day. Thanks very much for sailing with us and we'll see you soon hopefully. Cheers. Rich.
