THE BOAT

Sea Fury Charters has ceased fishing charter operations as of 31 March 2017.

We extend our warm thanks to those that have supported our business since September 2017.

Sea Fury is a modern, sleek and spacious 15 metre (55-foot) launch designed and built in New Zealand by Senator Boats. She is a catamaran design (two hulls), made of alloy and powered by two 500hp turbo-charged Volvo diesel engines. The full specifications of the vessel are nothing short of impressive. 

The Interior

The wheelhouse, galley and dining area are superbly practical and spacious. There is a flush toilet and shower, as well as a separate wash room for freshening up.  The cabins offer sleeping space for 8 guests. 

The Exterior

The back deck is a whopping 5m by 7m area comprising a large outdoor table with bench seating and a shade umbrella, as well as a 3-burner gas barbeque. There’s a custom bait board, sink, multiple rod holders and a salt water hose. In short, Sea Fury one of the roomiest and most fit-for-purpose charter boats you’ll find in Auckland.​

Where is Sea Fury based?

Sea Fury is moored at Half Moon Bay Marina, Auckland, New Zealand, but we have access to do pick-ups and drop-offs at many wharves and marinas around Auckland. We are certified to operate within the Maritime NZ-defined Inshore Limits of Auckland, Northland, Barrier and Bay of Plenty. 

How many people can we take on Sea Fury?

We comfortably carry 15 passengers, and can have up to 10 people fishing at once.  

For overnight trips (live-aboard), we take a maximum of 8 guests + 2 crew. There are two sleeping quarters, one in each hull. The port area contains two doubles and a single, while the starboard area contains one double and a single.

With 1,000hp of Volvo turbo-charged power and surface drive units, the boat delivers a top speed of 33 knots and a comfortable cruise of 22 knots – not to mention impressive twin rooster tails! You’ll be treated to a smooth ride in all sea states.

Furthermore, Sea Fury is kitted out with high quality well-maintained fishing equipment. This means less potential for hiccups and delays when you’re enjoying the fishing. Our crew are on hand to assist with all aspects of your fishing charter.

How Sea Fury got her name:

We’re often asked how Sea Fury got her name. Is it something to do with stormy weather?  Is she named after the 1958 movie “Sea Fury”?
