Welcome to MK Charters - We can organise your next fishing trip in Northland on the East or West Coast of New Zealand:
Our business name "MK Charters" combines initials of our two vessels available to charter. Robbie Matthews is the Skipper on "Moet" while Leighton Matthews skippers "Karizma" They both have a vast knowledge of the fishing grounds with a lot of successful fishing trips been experienced and noteable fish sizes between them. Robbie has been Crayfishing since 1975 and knows the North like the back of his hand. His son Leighton has been on the water all his life following in his fathers footsteps with a great interest in fishing also since his early teens.
What are you wanting to catch? Maybe a Striped Marlin is waiting for you.
We have" Moet" a 2006 Riveria 13M Launch, which is based in Houhora on our Swing Mooring during summer months or on our Whangaroa Marina during Winter and Spring. It is a very comfortable vessel, with all the bells and whistles to make your trip a memorable one. Powered by 2 370 HP Volvo's, double forward cabin, 2 bunkroom cabin and double configuration fold out in saloon. Adequate galley with leather upholstery seating in the saloon.
You can go fishing off our beautiful Northland Coast extending from Whangaroa or Houhora up to Cape Maria, North Cape, Cape Reinga and as far North as the famous Three King Islands which are so worth a trip to view for yourself.
Our other vessel is "Karizma" which is trailered at Ahipara launches through the West Coast surf break at Ahipara out to spectacular Coastline. It is an Aluminium 8.5M Catamaran being powered with two Mercury Verado 225HP motors. This boat is crayfishing commercially through the year from April - November and becomes available for your pleasure to go and catch mighty Hapuka, Snapper, Trevally or Kingfish which are all in abundance and waiting for you close to shore. There are two Banks only 8kms from shore which are wonderful fishing grounds.
