About Ocean Runners

How our fishing trips began 

Sea fishing has been a passion of Ryan’s since the age of 8, having spent much of his childhood on the water aboard his father’s 32 ft Contessa. He purchased his own Dory at the age of 14 and in 2011 he purchased his first charter boat, a 30ft Berry boat.  

He then advanced onto a Bullet 38ft, which provided speed but not comfort when at anchor in a choppy sea, which is typically characteristic of monohulled boats. He decided he wanted a boat that provided much greater comfort for anglers when in a sea chop and in 2018 Ryan took ownership of ‘Ocean Runner’ a brand-new Catapult catamaran, which is currently the newest addition to Poole’s charter fleet.
