SARANITA is a true fish-raising world traveler having just returned from the Eastern Atlantic fishing the summer 2016 in the Canary Islands, Madeira and the Algarve Coast of Portugal. Built by Roy Merritt and his experienced crew to take you to remote locations with economy and comfort. With reliable CAT Power and back-up systems throughout, SARANITA has been painstakingly refit to travel and fish big game or light tackle for marlin and tuna anywhere offshore and hosting a skiff to access remote inshore fisheries. Upgraded, refit and maintained by Merritt Boat and Engine Works, she must be seen to be fully appreciated. Too many upgrades and improvements since 2010 to mention. Come see this classic, rugged, stylish fishing machine for yourself - she turns heads in every port she enters!

In 2021 with years of success in the industry and ready for his next adventure, Chris, along with his partner and friend Denny Howell, opened DH Yacht Sales. Driven by knowledge and experience, he fulfilled his life-long dream of opening his very own yacht brokerage. In between selling some of the best boats built, Chris still finds time to get away and fish tournaments such as the White Marlin Open, Mid-Atlantic, Custom Shootout, White Marlin Round Up, and the Bermuda Series.
