Owner operator Steve Compain has over 30 years experience fishing the NT waters and searched the nation for the perfect NT blue water vessel. He was instantly impressed with Badenach Enterprise’s “Mark Ellis Design” vessels.
George Badenach, a perfectionist and long time crazy fisherman built the custom made vessels in Smithton Tasmania. Over the past 7 years George has built 2 quality 45’ vessels for Arafura Bluewater Charters, the Wai Tui and the Wai Adi. They are safe, fast, modern and very comfortable for day and extended charters.
The latest addition the Wai Nawana offers the next level of comfort , built in WA by Legend Boat Builders. A 52’ Mark Ellis design custom built for our 2-5 day charters.
The fourth vessel is Tere Tiki …This vessel is a favorite for many.
All vessels are in NT survey, regularly maintained and in excellent condition.
