About This Boat

A 58ft Salthouse design launched in September 2000, is a purpose-built, high-tech, high-performance fishing machine. Captain John Gregory has 22 years and 146,000 hours of professional fishing experience to offer you a fishing experience that will far outreach your expectations.

Purpose built for the top end of the market, big game fishing, and particularly for targeting the massive broadbill swordfish, the yacht is breaking new ground and leading the current New Zealand broadbill revolution with her unprecedented recent successes.

The main saloon of the yacht is tastefully furnished and spacious, which provides a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere for all occasions, whether it's watching your favorite video and relaxing, or participating in a management strategic planning session.

The yacht provides a modern superbly appointed galley, complete with household size fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, oven, gas hobs and complemented by a cockpit barbecue for those summer evenings.
