The Boat


Seahawk is a 12m Phoenix aluminium tri hull built in Whangarei, Northland. Built to maritime survey standards Seahawk has a complete inventory of safety equipment. The crew make you aware of all health & safety facets on board.

Seahawk has the latest Garmin electronic navigation with touchscreen GPS, fish eye 3D, google charts  and all this can be over laid with a 40  kilometre bird tracking radar.  An AIS vessel tracking system plus a shore based GPS  not only allows Seahawk to be aware of other commercial vessels but our land based crew has our location at all times.

Seahawk is powered by a 425hp Cummins engine that allows a comfortable cruising speed of 14kts giving us the opportunity to access the deep waters of our beautiful Hauraki Gulf. Whether it’s a full day charter or twilight evening fish you can sit back & relax whilst heading to the fishing grounds.

We have a four burner hob top & grill, fridge, gas calefont and a large cooking plate BBQ on the main deck.

Separate fully equipped toilets for males & females are a feature and tea, coffee & bottled water are available on request.


Leonard (Lenny) Rameka Lenny

Lenny has skippered fishing charters since 1987 and has a long family history of hunting & fishing. With his father an expert in fishing, hunting & free diving plus uncles & aunties that were addicted to gathering seafood it is little wonder the sea is Lenny’s passion. Whilst obtaining his skippers ticket he was taught how important it was to understand that everything that exists and happens on this land has an effect on your success in fishing. Married to Maria for 42 years and proud of his Ngapuhi descent Lenny Lenny constantly studies the tide flow & currents which fish follow & feed. “You can’t box nature” says the master fisherman as he takes another group fishing the beautiful Hauraki Gulf.

Daniel (Danny) Hansen Danny

Danny was born with a hook in his mouth. His father was a commercial fisherman so has been involved all his life. He began charter fishing in the early 1990s and has skippered boats on the waters of Auckland harbour & the Hauraki Gulf for 25 years and in his own words says “if I wasn’t doing an occupation  that  I have love & passion I would have to go out and find a real job”


All Seahawk charters have a skipper and deck boss. If you are prepared to listen & learn our team will teach you to fish the best we know how.

Our mission statement is 

“ the difference is we catch fish”
