‘Azzurra’ simply means ‘blue’ in Italian, but over in Port Vila Vanuatu, it is now recognised as Ocean Blue’s sensational new 32ft EdgeWater centre console, which is putting anglers onto all manner of sport and gamefish. The vessel itself is a real head turner and an absolute pleasure to fish from; it is a fast, dry purpose built fishing vessel ideal for fishing Vanuatu’s waters.
Stepping on board a well equipped boat like this is a confidence inspiring experience alone, I think I counted 19 rod holders onboard, plenty of drink holders, huge storage compartments and bait tanks, massive bow casting platform and space for 5 anglers jigging comfortably down 1 side. Comforts include padded gunwales, toilet, good seating layout, marine stereo while full electronics and twin 250’s get anglers quickly to the best fishing spots with no time wasted.
Skipper / guide Andrea Traverso is all about jigging Vanuatu’s seamounts for dogtooth tuna, chasing pelagics like yellowfin, wahoo on sports gear, trolling for sailfish, blue marlin and popping for GT’s, dogtooth, red bass and coral trout.
With Andrea at the helm and top quality tackle onboard, it ticks all the boxes for fishing Vanuatu, either out of Trees & Fishes Anglers Lodge or alongside our mothership on remote island fishing adventures.
