Norkat II is a purpose-built fish/spearing and tour vessel that was launched in July 2002. After running out of Mackay for a while, she’s recently changed hands and locations, and is now based in Cairns, Tropical North Queensland at Half Moon Bay Marina.
Norkat II is a fibreglass 72ft Westcoaster, fitted out specifically to cater to the comfort and needs of liveaboard fishing / spearing passengers.
Offshore we are licensed to carry 12 passengers and four crew for extended, multi-day fishing and spearing charters. Norkat II is Cairns’ newest fishing charter boat and has two desalinisation plants, providing the comfort of a continuous freshwater supply, even during the extended periods at sea.
The boat is powered by twin 750hp Iveco V8 engines and has two 25kva generators. It’s supported by two 6 metre centre console dories, with 150hp Honda four strokes. These are equipped with plotters, sounders and radios for your convenience and safety.
Norkat II has a range of approximately 200 nautical miles at 10 knots, allowing us to travel long distances without refueling.
Everything on Norkat II has been designed to maximize passenger comfort and style, while they’re enjoying extended fishing / spearing expeditions.
