About the Vessels 

Kiwi Cat, is a modern Alloy Catamaran made for shallow water cruising and ideal for the often-shallow river.

She was built in Picton in 2009 and is powered by two 90 HP Mercury Command Thrust Outboard Engines offering a very quiet ride. The vessel was initially built for scenic cruises in the Malborough Sounds at the top of the South Island.

She was brought to Hamilton by road and ferry in August 2018 by a group of local business people and was launched at the Pukete Boat Ramp.

Kiwi Cat was refurbished in 2018 with a brand new interior and new exterior seating. She was also re-certified by Maritime New Zealand until 2021.
