GEMLUX® Gulf Stream Outriggers: Revolutionizing Offshore Fishing

Awarded Boating Industry Magazine’s Top Products of 2023, GEMLUX® Gulf Stream Outriggers have changed the game.

GEMLUX®, a renowned manufacturer of high-quality marine products, has recently introduced the Gulf Stream Outriggers, a game-changing solution for anglers looking to optimize their fishing endeavors. These state-of-the-art outriggers offer unparalleled functionality, durability, and ease of use, making them a must-have addition to any fishing vessel.

GEMLUX® debuted the Gulf Stream Outriggers on brand new Valhalla 55’ – the fleet’s newest flagship, debuting at the Viking VIP Show earlier this year. Viking and Gemlux are family-owned and operated businesses dedicated to improving boating. Their relationship has grown tremendously over the last few years. It will continue to flourish with the newest edition of Gulf Stream Outriggers in the market and a shared passion for improving boating. GEMLUX® has also partnered with Front Runner to offer the new outriggers on the 47′ model as an option for the larger center consoles. The Gulf Stream Outriggers have also been installed on a SeaVee and several custom boats. By providing step-by-step installation videos and toolkits, GEMLUX®makes it convenient for boat builders to install these outriggers easily.

GEMLUX® Gulf Stream Outriggers are engineered to deliver exceptional performance on the open waters. All Gulf Stream outrigger models feature full carbon fiber pole structures, anodized aluminum hardware, and a sleek design without spreaders or stray wires. Patent-Pending assisted layout arms make deployment and retrieval effortless, as well as automatically locking on deployment and unlocking on retrieval. For even more convenience, hydraulic systems are currently in production. Attachment points for pulling dredges and teasers are available in pre-built positions or as accessories for captains to place in custom positions. They are designed to withstand the corrosive effects of saltwater, harsh weather conditions, and heavy usage, ensuring a long lifespan even in the most challenging environments.

“We are thrilled to change the game for the sportfish and large center console market by introducing our Gulf Stream Outriggers. They are engineered for modern sportfish yachts and large center consoles with towers. Gemlux introduced the top-selling carbon fiber outrigger system for center consoles five years ago, and we now aim to do the same for the sportfish market,” said Matthew Bridgewater, President & CEO of Gemlux.

The Gulf Stream Outriggers are available in multiple configurations and lengths to cater to a wide range of fishing styles and fit almost any boat. Also, allowing adjustability by 4 feet provides anglers further versatility and adaptability. This sleek design and adjustable features ensure smooth integration with the boat’s overall appearance and functionality.

With the Gulf Stream Outriggers, anglers can significantly improve their fishing success rates. The extended reach provided by these outriggers enables anglers to present baits in multiple positions simultaneously, increasing the chances of attracting fish. Whether targeting marlin, sailfish, tuna, or other aquatic species, these outriggers provide an effective method for deploying and managing your baits, maximizing your opportunities for a successful catch.

GEMLUX® Gulf Stream Outriggers represent a breakthrough in offshore fishing equipment for the first time in decades, offering anglers unparalleled performance, durability, and ease of use. With their innovative design, superior construction, and customization options, these outriggers are a game-changer for the sportfish and center console market.
