The 60ft Assegai built game fishing boat SHAKA on the far north Great Barrier Reef ex Port Douglas. As Shaka was purpose-designed to fish the 150-mile length of the Great Barrier Reef, she has the speed to get to the bite, the seaworthiness to fish comfortably in the rough conditions outside The Reef, and the flexibility and accommodation to double as the ‘mothership’.

At 60 feet, and powered by twin 1500hp MTU engines, Shaka has a top speed of 42 knots, a cruising speed of 32 knots and a range of 865 nautical miles at 20 knots.

With a dedicated pump room and engine room built to stringent Australian offshore survey regulations, she is said to be engineered like no other boat for extended liveaboard fishing.
