About This Boat

Enjoy Fishing by 45' Cygnet II in Auckland

A "Real" Charter Boat

Built by McManaway boatbuilders in Picton in 2000, Cygnet II was designed and built specifically for charter fishing. This becomes apparent the moment you come onboard, with many customers commenting about the spaciousness and the practical yet comfortable layout. This vessel has not been reinvented as a charter boat like others, rather she demonstrates in many respects what a real charter boat should be.

At 45 foot long and a 13 foot beam, Cygnet II is very roomy. Featured is a monstrous 15m3 cockpit with flush walkaround decks almost the full length of the boat, making ample room to fish 18 persons.

The hull design is a modern "hard chine" configuration enabling "Cygnet II" to plane at 15 knots, while being exceptionally stable at rest, unlike older "ferry boats" which can have an uncomfortable roll at anchor. "Cygnet II" really does sit on the water like a swan. When the 500hp Detroit diesel engine kicks in, you are away, but still in comfort avoiding the bashing that comes with most of the smaller charter craft that are designed more for family day tripping.

Enjoy the ample seating outside under cover, or in the spacious cabin, where you will find the facilities such as a modern galley, fridge/freezer, flat screen TV and DVD sound system. There is also a 4 burner BBQ in the cockpit.

Cygnet II also features a separate private walk in bathroom off the cockpit, with a full size domestic house flush toilet and hand basin. This is a feature not found in most smaller charter boats that do not have the luxury of this extra space. Ladies especially will appreciate this facility.

Finding fish on our Auckland fishing charters is done with some top rate electronics from Furuno and Northstar. A large chart plotter crammed with all of our spot X's, a high powered colour fishfinder and radar conclude the list. Fishing tackle from all of the top agents with soft bait rods and baitfishing combos available for all. The best bait that works can be ordered for your trip and fish are slurried in a large Icey Tech cooler.


Full Day:

Choosing a full day gives you the opportunity to fish a little further, or make use of a favourable tide.
The scenery improves the further out you go amongst the gulf islands, and often the quality of fish does too. You may want to incorporate a break for lunch at an island stopover and have a BBQ on board.

  • From $120.00* per person for 8 hours


Full Day Outer Gulf:

A popular choice in spring or mid-winter if wanting to chase fish further out in the Gulf, workups etc.

  • From $155.00* per person for 9 hours


Half Day:

This may suit your budget or time restriction. Either morning or afternoon ( when available ) will get you into some fishing action. This is a very popular option over the summer months when the snapper have migrated closer inshore to Auckland and the traveling time is reduced.

  • From $80.00* per person for 4.5 hours


Dusk Trips:

Nicknamed "Duskies" by us, these run during the daylight savings months from October until April.
Popular because daytime work commitments can be tackled and a play on the harbour after work is a just reward. The snapper in Auckland can really come on the bite an hour before dark, making this a popular option. Why not organise group from your workplace, but book early because these trips have limited availability.

  • From $80.00* per person for 4.5 hours
