The NZ Anglers Guide to Essential Boat Accessories in 2024

The sun's staying out a bit longer, the whispers of summer breezes are in the air, and that familiar itch is back – it's time to get your boat summer-ready!

But before you set sail, let's take stock of your trusty vessel and ensure it's equipped to handle the adventures (and inevitable sunscreen battles) that await. Here's your guide to essential boat accessories that'll elevate your summer on the water, from smooth cruising to epic fishing expeditions.

Power Up for Precision Manoeuvres with a Trolling Motor:

  • Minn Kota's Legacy of Control: When it comes to trolling motors, Minn Kota is the name synonymous with reliability and whisper-quiet power. Whether you're navigating tight channels or stalking that elusive trophy fish, a Minn Kota trolling motor like the Endura C2 or Riptide Transom Mount will give you the precision and control you crave. And don't forget the Minn Kota Mount – a sturdy base that keeps your motor secure and ready for action.

Shield Your Sanctuary from the Sun with a Bimini Top:

  • Stainless Steel Bimini Tops – The real MVP: Let's face it, even hardened sea dogs want a break from the scorching sun. Enter the Stainless Steel Bimini Top, your personal oasis of shade. Picture yourself lounging in the cockpit, cold drink in hand, while the bimini's sleek and durable awning deflects the heat and glare. For extra versatility, consider a T Top for Boats, offering extended shade and even a platform for additional accessories like rod holders or rocket launchers.

Conquer your Catch with Confidence with a Pre-built or Custom Bait Station:

  • Live Bait Tanks – Keeping Your Catch Happy: Every avid fisherman knows the importance of fresh bait. That's where a Removable Live Bait Tank comes in. Opt for an Aluminium Live Bait Tank for its lightweight, corrosion-resistant properties, and watch your bait thrive while you navigate to the hottest fishing spots.
  • Haswing Trolling Motors – Your Silent Fishing Ally: New Zealand waters hold some legendary fish, and having the right tools to get you there is key. Introducing the Haswing Trolling Motor, your quiet partner in stalking that monster snapper. Available in options like the 24v or 55lb thrust, a Haswing motor offers power, portability, and the stealth you need to get the drop on your quarry.

Beyond the Basics:
