Founded in 1996, Southern Ocean boat builders in Tauranga NZ have delivered an impressive list of world renowned race yachts, super yacht tenders, 100’ luxury Super Yachts and Sportfishers. Managing Director Greg McNabb is passionate about sport fishing and building quality boats. Today Greg is launching his new range of Monohull and Catamaran Sportfisher boats: “The WATCHMAN Series.”
The “WATCHMAN” design is blood stock Carolina with decent bow flare and 20° deadrise at the transom for offshore performance. The aesthetics are inspired from timeless classic game fishing boats we all love. The Monohull version is built using semi traditional cold moulded plywood with Epoxy glass either side. Alternatively the boat can also be constructed using composites depending on your style & budget. Each vessel fit-out is semi customizable to suit. The WATCHMAN Monohull Series runs from 35’, 38’, 45’, 55’, and 60’.
The “WATCHMAN CAT” design is a fuel efficient semi-displacement hull shape. It is built using modern techniques with lightweight foam core pre-laminated composite panels to reduce weight and increase fuel economy. The Watchman Cat Series runs from 41’, 48’, 55’, and 62’.
