12m Mussel barge/powercat

Snapper Fishing Safaris have just taken delivery of their new cat/barge. Surveyed for 40 passengers the vessel will however only take up to 20 on fishing trips. The new boat compliments Darryl and Megan O’Keeffe’s other two vessels. Able to cruise at a comfortable 15 to 20 knots, fishers will be able to spend more time fishing on a trip.

Power is by twin 150hp Yamaha outboards.

The vessel was designed by Kim Bertelsen and built by his company, Alloy Cats (NZ) Ltd in Mt Maunganui.
