Our Fleet



Our rainbow fleet of customized, fully rigged, Bertram 31’s are powered by twin diesel engines. All boats are outfitted with Raymarine electronics, custom tuna tubes and baitwell. Our captains are all local and have been fishing Piñas waters for decades. They have learned their extraordinary fishing skills from past generations of captains and are considered legends in the gamefishing realm. Over the years our crews have guided anglers to hundreds of IGFA world records. 

These boats have earned a justifiable reputation as true fishing machines, and the Tropic Star fleet runs for more than 10 months of the year, rain or shine, a true testament to the enduring practicality of this famous Bertram design. As you would expect, running a lodge in a remote jungle is like running a small city. To this end maintenance is vital. Our incredible team of engineers and mechanics run our onsite boatyard, complete with machine and carpentry shops, a marine railway and enough spare parts and knowledge to rebuild an engine in a matter of hours.


Rebuilt with quiet engines and air conditioned

Tropic Star Lodge is currently working on upgrading the entire fleet of Bertrams. This is an exciting undertaking for our in-house boatyard. The results are breathtaking. The upgraded Bertrams are more comfortable, quieter, faster and more fuel efficient than their predecessors. We currently have seven upgrade vessels available.

New upgrades include:

  • New Volvo Penta Engines
  • Enclosed air-conditioned salon with comfortable seating
  • Stand up head
  • New tuna tubes and fighting chair
  • New Raymarine electronics
  • Custom build wider bridge


Upgrade for space speed and more comfort

The Pollyanna is Tropic Star Lodge’s upgrade 45’ Hatteras. Modern, fast and comfortable; this 45’ Hatteras offers guests the chance to increase the number of anglers aboard to 6 people.

With two mates running the larger cockpit there will also be a chance for your mate to make you some fresh fish snacks in the galley.
