Private Client Services

Private Captain

Whether you want an experienced captain for your next Tampa Bay deep sea fishing trip or are interested in entertaining friends or clients aboard your boat, our Private Captain is at your service.

A full time captain is not practical for many boat owners. In this case, a licensed boat captain for hire from YACHTFISH is exactly what you need. Whether you require a captain with the best local knowledge for your next fishing excursion or you want to cruise to your favorite destination and relax in style, our Private Captain Services just make sense.

Marine Consulting

If you’re in the market for a new boat, or refurbishing an old one, we’re available to help with explaining your options and reviewing the array of possibilities available to you.

Purchasing a new boat can be exciting and frustrating at the same time. Consult with us if you would like valuable information to assist with making informed decisions about everything from boat design to performance. We can assist with hands-on operating instructions, pre-purchase sea trials, rigging layout, marine surveys and more.


Corporate & Private Events

When you want to take clients deep sea fishing or spend the day joyriding in the Gulf, YACHTFISH can help with your next corporate event.

YACHTFISH coordinates private activities such as employee incentive trips, inshore and offshore Tampa Bay fishing, Tampa Bay water tours, destination events and more. We specialize in fun in the sun. Let us put together a custom package to meet your goals today.

What some of our Private Clients are saying…

  • “My new boat turned out perfect! Your advice regarding what electronics to choose, cockpit layout, rod holder placement, live well size and on and on and on, was spot on. I would have been lost without your help. Especially the stuff you found on the sea trial. Oh, and the red lights above the helm are perfect for running at night. Thanks again Matt.”

    Steven Bennett
  • “Matt, thank you so much for getting the fiberglass repair work done on the stern of my boat so quickly. I can’t even tell anything was wrong. It looks better than when I had my boat completely refurbished 8 years ago! Still can’t believe how the new paint blended with the old paint perfectly. Let’s go fishing!”

  • If you’re looking for an extremely competent Captain, both inshore and offshore fishing guide and event planner, look no further than Matt Douglas. Matt has extensive experience beyond his years, running 60 foot plus sport fishing yachts and 20 foot inshore bay boats and all types in between. I have had the pleasure fishing with him all around Florida, the Keys and the Bahamas as well as Central America. You will not find a more reliable Captain and an outstanding and knowledgeable fisherman.

    His company “Yachtfish” is capable of getting you booked on package trips including accommodations, transportation and chartered fishing in some of the best destinations around. Matt also has the right temperament to excel at all of these challenges and I know you will be very satisfied with him.
