Excalibre

Designed very much with the typical New Zealand outdoorsman in mind, the boat is configured for a number of uses, including big game fish, bottom fishing, spear fishing, diving and swimming.

The design makes use of a helm station that is a half level above the main deck, allowing the dashboard to expand over the saloon, without intruding into it, and giving the helmsman good vision both forward and aft. The helm has seating for four passengers and the helmsman. Along with the location of the helm, innovation is used in the hull form, by way of a double chine arrangement. The chines do not cross the waterline, eliminating chine slap while at anchor.

The cockpit includes a central bait station a full array of stowage lockers and live bait tank and engine room access to the twin 315 horsepower engines. Access to the head and shower, steps to the helm and companionway to the saloon are all directly from the cockpit. The saloon holds a complete galley and dinette, with an open plan sleeping arrangement forward.
