Pacific Star Boat Overview

The Pacific Star was built in 1980. She has been meticulously maintained with upgrades over the years and provides a very safe and stable fishing platform for our anglers. She is very comfortable and has a spacious main deck for anglers to fight their fish.

The stern of the boat has 3 bait tanks and enough rail space to allow all passengers to fish. Rod storage is provided along the port and starboard sides for quick access to your rods from the rocket launchers. There is additional storage for gear and rods up on the sun deck.

The bow of the Pacific Star has two additional bait tanks for anglers who like to fish from the front. The walk around rail gallows anglers to fight their fish from any location on the boat, a necessity when fighting some of the larger pelagics we encounter during multi-day trips into Mexican waters. She is built to fish hard and comes with the latest fish finding technology.

Fish Hold    
Capacity 8 tons, Refrigeration RSW/Brine
Custom built and installed by the same company that designed systems for most of San Diego’s long range fleet. Sea water is circulated in a closed loop from fish hold through a titanium chiller, then pumped through a series of nozzles located inside the hold creating a spray pattern which covers the fish. We can pump sea water chilled to 28 degrees (freezes below that). Preferable on 1 & 1.5 day trips. Or add brine (salt) which can be drawn down to 10 degrees, we brine to lower temp on our multi- day trips. Either way your catch will be handled with care and arrive dockside as fresh as possible.
