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.


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”
