Major Tom II is a serious fishing boat with a fun crew. She is owned and operated by Geoff and Heather Stone, who along with their anglers, hold numerous Club, New Zealand, and even World Records for marlin, broadbill, swordfish, shark, tuna, kingfish, snapper and sea bass. For two of the last three seasons, Major Tom II has collected the Bay of Islands premium awards for both Most Gamefish, and Most Gamefish Tagged.

Powered by Twin 300 HP Cummins, Major Tom II has top speeds of 30 knots and a cruising speed of 20 knots to make her one of the fastest 40 footers in the Bay, and give her clients more fishing time.

Major Tom II is surveyed for Extreme Limits and the Three Kings, but is as much at home giving space and comfort to inshore snapper and kingfish anglerls, as she is cruising in blue water to reward those who want to chase marlin, broadbill swordfish, tuna, sharks or hapuka in the deep.

For the fish-aholic crew of Major Tom II, keeping the boat busy is their top priority, and prospective clients will find the charter rates extremely competitive, whether for part, full or multiple day charters.

Major Tom II is supplied with plenty of top quality gear for all types of angling, including salt-water fly fishing, but clients are encouraged to bring their own favourite rods and reels for light, ultra light and salt-water fly.

For a hassle-free Bay of Islands fishing excursion tailored to your requirements phone or email Geoff, or book through your nearest booking agent or accommodation supplier.
