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. Whale Watch are extending their fleet with their seventh Teknicraft catamaran to keep up with the growing number of tourists within New Zealand.

This 25m catamaran is an evolution of their most recent vessels with the addition of Teknicraft's Sickle Bow design for improved seakeeping characteristics allowing passengers to watch the whales in improved comfort.
