Our Fleet

Hard working Bertram boats in use a the Tropic Star LodgeSTANDARD BERTRAMS: Our rainbow fleet of customized, fully rigged, Bertram 31’s are powered by twin diesel engines, efficient enough for the Pacific Ocean.  All boats are outfitted with GPS, VHF radios, custom tuna tubes and baitwell. Our captains are all local and have been fishing Piñas waters for many years. Several 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.

Live bonito ready for baitThese boats have earned a justifiable reputation as true fishing workhorse, and the Tropic Star fleet runs 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. When things break down out there, you also need to know how to fix it yourself. Toward that end, Tropic Star has built an impressive boatyard on site, complete with machine and carpentry shops, a marine railway and enough spare parts to rebuild an engine in a matter of hours.

UPGRADE BERTRAMS: Tropic Star Lodge is currently working on upgrading the entire fleet of Bertrams. This is a massive undertaking for our -in-house workshop: but the results are breathtaking. The upgraded Bertrams are more comfortable, quieter, faster and more fuel efficient from their predecessors. We currently have 5 upgrade vessels available.

New upgrades include:

  New Volvo Penta Engines
  Enclosed air-conditioned salons with comfortable seating
  Spacious sit-down head
  New tuna tubes and fighting chair
  New Raymarine electronics
