Kingfisher Boats and Powercats have been based in the Tauranga area in New Zealand for over 19 years. In this time we have built up a diverse range of products including both commercial and recreational vessels ranging from 3m to 18m in length. With our in house design capabilities, we are able to completely design and build the boat that you require.
Our Boatbuilding Experience
While we are powercat specialists, our expertise in boatbuilding extends to all areas of the market – from small dinghies and punts right through to large monohull launches. In between we have designed and built houseboats for leisure and charter, workboats for charter and crayfishing, and an extensive range of trailer boats – both the Kingfisher brand and other well known brands. Outside of our own Kingfisher designs we have built boats designed by Naiad, Tim Barnett, and Roger Hill. We have built boats to comply with survey standards by Lloyds, Australian Maritime Safety Authority and Maritime New Zealand.
MINICAT VS MONOHULL
More beam means more useable space inside a minicat, and around the decks. Without the ‘pointed’ shape of the bow of a monohull, a minicat gains considerable space where our casting decks are giving our minicats a massive advantage when it comes to usable space.
