Tom Aliotti, a third Generation Fisherman, has gathered experience over decades by putting his own built vessels to the test. But as everything in life, it is all about finding the next cutting edge to improve and to make the next vessel just one notch better than the last one.
The season is too short to cut corners on quality; it is a fact. Every product on a vessel must be well selected and be proven to work. Windows, hydraulics, refrigeration, engines, gears and jets, all has to work simply perfect together.
Using modern production methods is key to build solid vessels as light as possible, to allow room for what counts, Salmon.
Vessels are being started upside down. Once flipped, the deck is quickly attached to get to the interior work which consumes most time and effort.
Lifting the hoot of a modern Bristol Bay vessel is a true eye opener to why they cost what they cost. An incredible amount of detail goes into those vessels to do what they need to do for a successful season.
Performance is key. Aliotti vessels outperform not only the competition in speed, but also in carrying load. When you still get up and plane with 10,000 pounds of fish, you know you got it right.
Jets are essential to be able to fish in extremely shallow water. Other advantages such as maneuverability and getting on step with a solid amount of fish without hurting the engines, is simply brilliant.
Customers have a choice of propulsion packages. Over the last several years, FPT has proven to be the best power provider. Light, fuel efficient and simply reliable.
