Dickey 45 for show
The 2018 Auckland On Water Boat Show promises to be an extra-special occasion for acclaimed Napier custom boatbuilder, Dickey Boats.
Launched in late 2016, the company’s glamourous Semifly 45 presents to the New Zealand boating public for the very first time; an exciting landmark for the whole Dickey Boat team.
Described by Boating NZ’S John Eichelsheim as “an aluminium boatbuilding triumph,” the Semifly 45 offers a level of luxury and performance befitting its status as the flagship in the company’s bespoke vessel range.
A proven blue-water sportfisher, the Semifly 45 blends home-like comfort and space with superb fuel economy – even at pace – to deliver a uniquely capable package sure to intrigue show-goers in late September.
An added element of interest for some may be the fact that the vessel to be displayed is undergoing preparations for a transTasman crossing as part of the hand-over process to its Australian owner. Such a trip requires detailed planning, an area where Jason Dickey’s superyacht background comes to the fore. Visitors to the Dickey Boat stand are welcome to engage Jason on the topic.
Supporting the Semifly 45 will be the hugely popular Semifly 32. Arguably the company’s most successful model to date, the mid-sized sport-fisher/family cruiser sits comfortably in a versatility and handling sweet-spot.
Repeatedly proving itself manageable by crews of almost any experience, the Semifly 32 compromises little to weekender functionality. As with all vessels in the Semifly range, it is fair to describe the 32’s fuel economy figures as outstanding in this class. Again, boat show guests are encouraged to discuss the topic further with the team. BNZ
