KEKOA is 56ft a custom purpose-built game boat for East Coast Australia Gamefishing. KEKOA was built with the Cairns marlin season and long-range liveaboard charters in mind. Two years of planning went into the design and build and she has only exceeded expectations!

The 56 foot was launched in March 2010. She is the second O’Brien for KEKOA’s owners have been very impressed with their previous 47-foot model. In 2018 she underwent a moderate refit and is looking and performing as good as ever!

KEKOA is equipped with the latest state-of-art electronics. As proud Garmin Ambassadors, we underwent a complete electronics refit in 2016 to ensure we had the latest technology at our fingertips! The vessel travels around the East Coast Australia from Gold Coast, Fraser Island, Cairns Great Barrier Reef, and far north Queensland & Northern Territory.
