CUSTOM  Aluminium

At Makaira Boats we build industry leading aluminium sport fishing boats. We are the only company to offer a lifetime warranty on hulls, because quality is at the forefront of everything we do.


The Makaira boats factory is based a few hours north of Auckland in the game fishing capital of New Zealand, the Bay of Islands. Every aspect of our builds are done in house. From designing your build with our in-house designer, at fabrication with CNC cutting of the plate on our router and CNC break press, right through to painting in our fully certified semi-downdraft paint booth, electrical fit out and upholstery. This ensures the quality of our product from the raw aluminum right through to our boats leaving our factory.

The Makaira Way

  • All Hulls are designed using naval architecture software.  
  • With a full weight study done on the boat before it is built to ensure the best sea keeping in all seas 
  • Fully welded full length girders and inter-coastal frames
  • Multiple captive buoyancy chambers (we leave all frames and girders intact)
  • 8mm hull standard
  • Limited Lifetime hull warranty (10 year transferable)
  • All aspects of a boat build are completed in house from CNC cutting of the plate at fabrication right through to paint, electrical fit out and upholstery 
  • We will custom build your boat to suit your needs; be it a dedicated sport-fishing machine, a custom dive boat or a family weekender.
