Makaira Aluminium Sport Fishing Boat - 940

A purpose built trailerable sport fishing boat designed to fish the game fishing Mecca of NZ – The 3 Kings, a remote group of islands 50 nautical miles north of New Zealand.  

To do this the boat needs long-range and offshore sea keeping ability. The boat sleeps 6 in large berths without using the saloon and carries a massive 850L of fuel giving a fishing range of over 1000nm. With a cruising speed of 30 knots and top speed of 37.5 knots you can cover large distances in comfort with excellent economy. 

It has twin helm stations allowing you to fish light crew or even solo. Spec'd with 4 tuna tubes and a 180L live well tank you will never be caught without live baits. While the 940 is a sport fishing machine at heart, it is also a great platform for family adventures with all the creature comforts of home.
