Twin Mercury SeaPros prove themselves as the right partner for Heritage Charters

Published on: 10/09/2019


Exmoor has 37 miles of spectacular, sheltered coastline that tumbles into the Bristol Channel and is full of fish. Heritage Charters has taken advantage of this and offers experienced, good quality fishing along Exmoor’s coastline and the Bristol Channel. 

The team take pride in making each trip an experience and can arrange specialist visits to destinations including the stunning Lundy Island. The day begins from Watchet, an ancient port of 1000 years, where you can be instantly on the fish: Rays, Eels, Smoothhound, Bass and even Cod during the winter months.

Recently, Heritage Charters has built a brand-new, state-of-the-art vessel to make its fishing trips even more of an experience. In 2019, Lorna Doone was launched; a purpose built, 11.4m Swiftcat on foils powered by twin Mercury SeaPro 300hp V8 outboard engines. 

These 4.6litre four-stroke outboards provide everything needed for fishing: plenty of displacement, power, efficiency and durability. The impressive muscle of the powerheads has been specifically designed for commercial duty and delivers a one-two combination of ample torque and low weight which makes the engines ideal for heavily loaded boats. 

Even better, the Advanced MidSection virtually eliminates vibration being transmitted to the boat whilst joystick piloting provides maximum control and manoeuvrability – perfect for a successful day out on the water.

Combine all this with the latest Simrad electronics, a full walk around deck offering loads of fishing space, WC, seating inside and out plus plenty of tea and coffee, you have the perfect recipe for a top day afloat.

“Heritage Charters runs angling charters for all. From absolute beginners to highly experienced anglers, we pride ourselves on meeting the needs of everyone,” commented Tom Wright, Principal Director at Heritage Charters.

“When we were building this brand-new vessel, the brief was simple: it had to be special. And that’s exactly what we’ve achieved. A state-of-the-art vessel with stunning Mercury power. Simply awesome!”
