“A Live One”

Freeman 29 Catamaran

Experience one of Hilton Head’s fastest and softest riding charter fishing boats: A Live One™. This Freeman 29 has a huge 10’ beam with lots of space, more like you would expect on a 34’ deep-vee in comparison, thanks to this great catamaran design. Find out why there is a multi-year wait list to build a new boat from Freeman Boatworks…The ride is unbelievable!

A Live One™ is equipped with the latest gear and technology: Garmin sonar, radar, and autopilot, with Sirius XM satellite radio & offshore weather service.

The oversized t-top provides plenty of shade, and a “chaise lounge” style seat extends through the fore deck, along with console and aft seating. Plenty of comfortable space for the whole group.

She fishes anywhere from inshore to offshore and in between. Bottom fishing, trolling, jigging, she's ready to tackle just about anything.

A Live One™ is outfitted with high-end reels from SEiGLER, Shimano and Penn. Rods include Made-In-USA custom rods from Barrett Rods, Connley Fishing and Crafty One Customs.

What is Fish Flex™ Pricing?

We've created Fish Flex™ Pricing with the goal of providing you the most value in your charter based on where you want to fish and how you want to fish.

The charter cost is a Base Rate of $110 per hour + Fuel Cost.

We currently offer Fish Flex™ Pricing on our Full Day Offshore fishing charters on A Live One. Of all our trips, these see the widest variation of fuel consumption. For example, high speed trolling for wahoo 60 miles offshore could easily consume 150 gallons, but a bottom fishing trip anchored up just 10 miles out might burn a mere 50 gallons or so. Both are full day trips, but as you can see, the expense variation is roughly 100 gallons, so that means a few hundred dollars depending on the pump price. It doesn't seem fair to price both trips the same.

Instead, we are offering variable pricing to make cost fair to every customer based on their exact trip.

If you'd like a precise budget limit for your trip, just let your captain know, and we can operate within an agreed range. We aren't trying to "run up the bill" but rather keep it under control while maximizing your fishing opportunity. We can run efficiently at a very comfortable speed on this boat. On the other hand, if you want to get there as quickly as possible, we are glad to oblige. Some guests might choose to get there as fast as possible and fish as much as possible, while others prefer to balance efficiency. That's up to you.

Your captain is glad to discuss details with you in planning your ideal trip. We plan to call you in advance on all offshore reservations to make sure we have the best plan in place.

How do we measure fuel usage?

A Live One has state of the art Yamaha fuel computers that will show us exact fuel usage from the moment we leave the dock to the moment we return. There is no guesswork in knowing how much we've used.

Typical Fuel Usage Estimates:
• Short-Range Near Coastal: 25-60 gals
• Mid-Range Towers & Reefs: 60-120 gals
• Gulf Stream Towers & Ledge: 85-170 gals
• High Speed Trolling Wahoo: 120-200* gals

*While our total fuel capacity is 248 gallons, we operate with a "soft limit" of ~200 gallons usage so that we have a good margin of spare fuel for unexpected situations like strange weather.

What is the fuel price?

Fuel price will be based on the actual pump price of fuel at the Hilton Head Harbor dock at the time of departure. We typically have the lowest price marine fuel in the area.

Understand that we use marine fuel, which is 89 octane ethanol-free fuel sold at a dock and it's priced/taxed differently than auto gas on the street. It's usually around 30-50% higher than the fuel you put in your car. In general, South Carolina tends to have some of the lowest fuel prices nationwide, so that's a good thing.
