Taking it to the Extreme

Taking it to the extreme

By Andy Bryenton

New Zealand's strong maritime culture means that our local boat builders and nautical designers are among the best in the world.
This has been true since the golden age of sail, and the industry continues to innovate and lead the world today thanks to the efforts of businesses like Extreme Boats, started as a family company back in 1998. Today, Extreme Boats are ahead of the game when it comes to producing exceptionally stable and capable seagoing craft, with a trophy cabinet full of accolades to their name.
The Extreme Boats Game King is the most awarded of the bunch, taking out back to back titles at the nation's biggest boat show and leading not just in the field of aluminium boats, but across all vessels on display. This elegantly formed 5.7 metres of maritime-grade aluminium looks fast even when sitting on its trailer, and when introduced to its natural element it's easy to see why the Game King 570 is a firm favourite with both family sailors and serious sports fishers.
The secret to the Game King 570's success is a cleverly crafted deep-vee hull, conceptualised by noteworthy maritime designer Scott Robson. The deep vee is a common feature across the Extreme Boats range, providing excellent stability at low speeds and the ability to tackle big seas when it's time to head out after that big catch.
Angling was certainly on the designer's mind when the Game King 570 first left the drawing board. Along with a rank of rod holders, there's plenty of stowage for all your tackle, a live bait tank, and room for that all-too-necessary portable grill on deck. In fact, with the addition of some salt ice to the twin 100 litre underfloor bins, the Game King becomes the consummate sea harvester.
That being said, this boat is a great all-rounder, with easy access for divers, a factory-fitted double towing loops for wakeboarding or towing, and handling which invites some sports-car-like moves on the water. A pleasure on a family cruise or a serious fishing expedition, made in New Zealand and respected worldwide. Come and see for yourself at Northland Field Days, on the Northland Boating Centre site.
