What a lovely boat and a perfect day - my first time fishing and I caught my quota. Thank you for teaching me how to fish. This was an experience I will remember forever.”

The boat

The M.V. Joy heading out for another day's successful snapper fishingThe M.V. JOY is a 12.5m (45 foot) kauri launch capable of cruising at 11 knots. She was purpose built for fishing and has a spacious covered deck for fishing and side walkways to the front of the boat so people can fish up the sides. It has dropsides to shelter you from the wind on the way to the fishing grounds.

She is licensed to take up to 30 passengers, however we recommend fishing 20 anglers at a time.

There is also has an inside cabin seating area and a household toilet system onboard. There is an excellent sound system on board. Tea and coffee are complementary on board, and the use of the BBQ is free of charge. Passengers are welcome to bring their own refreshments along.

The M.V. JOY is a boat full of character. She is comfortable, warm and dry. We want people to relax and have fun. We don’t worry too much if you spill your drink or track a few scales around.

The M.V. JOY is fully compliable with the safety standards of Maritime New Zealand and has a current Safe Ship Management Certificate. Safety is first on all of our vessels, and all our skippers hold current first aid certificates.

Although we target snapper, there is vast variety of fish species in the Hauraki Gulf, and we frequently catch many different species such as trevally, john dory, kahawai, kingfish and even the odd shark.
