Glistening Waters has been purpose built to fish East Cape waters and can carry sufficient fuel to troll for 10 days without need to refuel.The vessel is fast and seaworthy which means more time fishing in productive water. For tournaments with restricted fishing times this can prove invaluable. To reach the weigh station before closing with that prize winning fish, a large fast vessel is hard to beat
