Welcome aboard The Sinbad! The Sinbad is a 36 foot sportfisher custom-built by renowned boat builder, Warren O'Neal. Whether you are in the cockpit chairs putting your feet up or sitting in the shade, we offer the comfort......Outer Banks style.
Drifting or casting, jigging or trolling, live bait or lure; the Penn and Shimano tackle changes with the fishing. Our 540 Cummins diesel can take us from the backwater to the sea depending on time of year, weather, and fish availability. Blues, Spanish, Cobia, Drum, Kings, Amberjack, Flounder, Trout, Croaker, and Fall Rockfish are some of the species seen throughout our fishing year. Experience is not necessary and our clients are now four generations deep.

The Sinbad is the only Charter Vessel operated at Oregon Inlet by a husband and wife, dual captain crew, Captains Will & Viv McPherson. Captain Will McPherson is a native of North Carolina and has fished the waters off of the Outer Banks for 40 years. Captain Will has fished both Offshore and Near Shore and is very familiar with our coastal waters. During his off-shore career, Captain Will skippered both the Jo Boy and the Fishing Fool on many blue water excursions and tournaments. With the purchase of the Sinbad in 1981 and assuming the helm, captaining the boat has allowed him the freedom to fish what the Banks has to offer Near-Shore. It was no accident that the original builder of the boat, Warren O'Neal, said he would have bought his boat back had he known it was being sold, as he had originally built it for himself. This crew certainly loves it as well and have enjoyed fishing together since 1983.
A word from the captain... "Even after a successful fishing career spanning 40 years, I still feel the excitement of hearing the engine start up early in the morning. There is still that pull of anticipation of what we might catch that day as we ease out of the slip. Taking people fishing is as exciting for me today as yesterday. It's always different. It's always a bit new." Will McPherson.
