The Royal Polaris is still the fastest long-range sportfisher in the world! She is 113-feet in length with a 29-foot beam and is driven by three 3412 Caterpillar diesels. Her range is virtually unlimited due to her enormous fuel, bait, and refrigerated fish storage capacities. She is equipped with all the latest navigational and fish-finding gear.

Accommodations aboard the Royal Polaris are first class. She boasts:

  • 18 air-conditioned staterooms (some with private heads).
  • A beautifully appointed lounge with spacious seating for 30 people.
  • TV, VCR and stereo are available for your entertainment.
  • There are comfortable lounging facilities on the upper deck for the pleasure of sun worshippers.

The Owner and Captain of the Royal Polaris is Frank LoPreste , a legendary sportfisherman, who is assisted by co-captain Jonathon Yamate. The hands-on expertise provided by LoPreste and Yamate largely contributes to the unequalled success of this operation.
