Perhaps the most highly competitive tournament series in the world, the Los Sueños Signature Triple Crown brings together the best captains and anglers for three tournaments held in the beautiful resort, located on the central Pacific coast of Costa Rica. In the mix are some of the finest boats in the world as well. Here’s a look at just a few of the custom and production boats competing in the 2018 Signature Triple Crown, with our thanks to photographer Pepper Ailor for these images.
