25m Whale Watch Kaikoura Catamaran

Whale Watch Kaikoura is one of Teknicraft's largest clients having six Teknicraft catamarans, four of which are currently operating on the remote East Coast of the South Island of New Zealand. Attracting more than 100,000 tourists per annuum, Whale Watch are considering their seventh Teknicraft catamaran to extend their fleet to keep up with the growing number of tourists within New Zealand.

This 25m proposal will allow passengers to watch the whales in improved comfort by an evolution of their most recent vessels, adding Teknicraft's Sickle Bow design for improved seakeeping characteristics.
