Available for corporate events, harbour cruising, fishing charters and conveniently located in Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour.

Now owned by Mike and Maryann McCready and still skippered by Ken Pascoe and operating out of the Viaduct Basin, Gladiator is one of Auckland’s leading charter boats. Mike and Maryann aim to build on Ken and Donna’s legacy and retaining Ken as skipper and guide was critical. Gladiator is available for hire for any period of time from 4 hours to 4 days. Let us tailor a package to suit you.

Gladiator is a 55 foot luxury sports fisher equipped with Sky TV and a quality Bose surround sound music system, making it the ideal charter boat for your next corporate event, fishing trip, or simply cruising on Auckland Harbour and the Hauraki Gulf. Gladiator’s fantastic GYRO stabiliser system ensures our guests enjoy the best possible ride when conditions are less than perfect.

As a fully equipped fishing charter boat we provide top quality fishing equipment for hire at very reasonable rates, along with full food and beverage catering or BYO as required.

Outside the Auckland region some of our most popular charter destinations include Waiheke Island, Kawau Island and Great Barrier Island, however we are also able to take private fishing charters (including big game fishing) just about anywhere in New Zealand waters. Regardless of your chosen destination, our friendly and vastly experienced crew will ensure your fishing trip is a memorable one.
