As a naval architect, marine engineer, mechanic and skipper, Walter Brun has built “BALOO”, “ARIELLE” and “NALA” to specifications which are ideally suited to the needs and conditions of the tropical environment. His boats have all the relevant sea worthiness certificates, fishing licenses, marine insurance, navigation – safety equipment and comply with international standards.
They are equipped with the best quality fishing gear from Shimano and Penn International which will help to play and catch your fish.
Elevated Exhaust Outlets:
Walter Brun started to modify the exhaust outlets in autumn 2007. What started as an experiment, became a great succes during the testing procedure and at the end of 2007, all boats were equiped with elevated exhaust outlets. The special construction provides a maximum comfort for the fishing guest, though the exhaust fumes leave the pipe in a height of 5m above the sea and don’t disturb when fighting a fish.
The result is extraordinary: much less people became seasick and technical changes at the motor ensure that the motor can’t overheat and develops its full power.
