Gamefisher II is a 31' custom-built Palm Beach design sport fisher powered by twin Volvo engines; tailor made and immaculately kept, for comfortable offshore day charters for up to 4 anglers.
The bilingual crew of Captain Richard Chellemi and alternate Captain and First Mate, Junior Bustos Abarca, has been a team aboard the Gamefisher II since 1986. Specializing in fly-fishing for billfish, their in-depth knowledge and methods provide a world-class angling experience. They are also excellent teachers to newcomers to the sport.
Winning Team: The Gamefisher II placed first in the Billy Pate International Sailfish Fly-fishing Tournament in 1996, 1997 and 2000. They have also finished second, third and fourth in the seven years that they have entered. Gamefisher II has been the top finisher in Costa Rica's International Sailfish Tournament three times, and placed second and third the other two years that they fished that event.
