Our boat is a 25-foot Stabicraft 759 powered by a Yamaha 300hp 4-stroke outboard. Built in Southland and designed to excel in our coastal sea conditions, she is fast, comfortable, safe and is in survey for all of the South Island’s enclosed (including lakes) and inshore waters and much of the coastal waters between. All passengers can be accommodated inside the cabin and out of the weather if they wish. The cabin is heated and there is a marine toilet onboard.
