The Pinnacle 830 is the latest launching by Pinnacle Boats in Whitianga and continues their premise for of high quality custom designs.

The boat was built for a new fishing charter operation ‘Mr Fishing Adventures Ltd’ that operates all over the upper half of the North Island targeting both fresh and saltwater species.

The Scott Robson design has an overall length of 8.38m, beam of 2.5m with a tow weight of around 2600kg. It features a 6mm thick alloy hull with 4mm used in the sides and superstructure.

Built to rigid survey standards, Pinnacle Boats also has one of only a handful of welders qualified to Lloyd’s standard in New Zealand working on the build.

Powering the new 830 is a Honda 250 fed via a 600L fuel tank giving the skipper and crew extended daily trips on the water before needing to refuel. Highly customised to suit the owners requirements, the Scott Robson monohedron hull was chosen for its efficiency and excellent sea keeping ability with its 20 deg deadrise providing a comfortable ride for passengers and crew while also providing a stable fishing platform when at rest.

The Pinnacle 830 has an enclosed wheelhouse with plenty of passenger seating, an Eberspacher diesel Hyrdonic water and air heater keeping skipper and crew comfortable over the colder winter months. Additional features include a large 15” Furuno multi function navigation display with dual keel-mounted transducers.

In the large and workable cockpit there is an underfloor kill tank, full length cockpit side shelves, dual live bait tanks, four tuna tubes and large volume underfloor buoyancy, The cockpit also features a second helm station for the Honda four-stroke.
