Waitemata - pilot boat


The requirements for this project are well summarised by the retrospective article written 11 years ago by Professional Skipper Magazine, reflecting on the success and longevity of this 11.5m high speed vessel which remains in active commercial service to this day.

The project was a design and build, led by McMullen & Wing with naval architecture by John Lund Marine Design in Australia using a low wash Stolkraft hull form; a considerable innovation at the time.
