Major Tom II Charters
About this listing
Don Senior (Flybridge) originally built in 1987 and restored in 1996. Powered by 2 315HP Cummins engines with a maximum cruising speed of 20 knots.
Major Tom II is owned and skippered by a well-known Bay of Islands fishing identity Geoff Stone. Geoff has been on the water for over 40 years, and as a professional fisherman and a winner of many tournaments, he is a sound choice for a safe, fun-filled fishing trip.
With a 14 foot beam and an overall length of 40 feet, Skipper Geoff’s boat, a Don Senior, offers the opportunity for anglers to fish in space and comfort. Major Tom II is powered by twin 315 HP Cummin engines, and is a safe vessel which features a GPS and a radar. It also has a fishfinder which locates the best fishing spots with schools of fish waiting to bite. The boat holds a toilet which is essential when you are spending the day on the water, and especially if you are taking your children out. Other features include a fighting chair, rods and reels, lures and fresh bait which are all included in the price.
Inshore anglers have the benefit of Geoff’s extensive knowledge of the Bay’s best fishing locations, and those wishing to chase big game options in the deep have the benefit of a skipper whose anglers have caught numerous World and New Zealand records for Broadbill, Marlin, Tuna, Sharks, Yellowtail Kingfish and Snapper. Whether you are looking for a quick trip to catch a Snapper for tea, battle with one of the Bay’s famous XOS Yellowtail, or a multiple day excursion cruising the Northland coast’s hotspots, Geoff and Major Tom II are ready to present the best of New Zealand’s salt water action.

Went fishing on March 3, 2016
The wind and seas were too high for marlin fishing so Captain Geoff gave me the option of changing plans to fish for snapper and yellow tail. I only had one day to fish I took that option. Turned out to be a fun day and we caught snapper and yellow tail. If I fish in the Bay of Ialands again I would go on The Major Tom with Capt. Geoff.
