About Amaretto Sport Fishing

Amaretto IV is a fast modern multi-hull angling boat based at Lyme Regis, Dorset. This is the perfect location from which to fish the numerous wrecks and reefs of Lyme Bay. Situated at the centre of a 60 square mile conservation zone (no trawling!) you will be amazed at both the quality and variety of fishing available.


Kitted out with state of the art Raymarine technology (we are a supported Raymarine Ambassador) and comprehensively equipped with two GPS chart plotters for navigation and wreck location; a large high definition colour sounder / fish finder; two VHF radios; radar and telephone.

Safety & Comfort

Amaretto meets all the MCA requirements and is licensed and insured to operate up to 60 miles off shore. For your comfort and convenience we have a full sea toilet, plenty of seating, a microwave and hot water for tea/coffee.
