BELUGA launched her new chase boat MINKE

Launched in October 2017, BELUGA’s new chaseboat MINKE is a brand new 40ft fishing boat, exclusively dedicated to the 113.8ft superyacht in the Great Barrier Reef. The Owner’s preferred builder, Assegai custom built this express-style sports cruiser with a well-advanced seakeeper stabilization gyro, limiting sea sickness and wave motion.
With her equipment, she is perfectly designed for diving and game fishing enthusiasts.

Marlin-fishing in the Northern end of the Great Barrier Reef is best experienced between the months of August to October.

MINKE accommodates 1 skipper and 1 dive master. She also employs the Twindisc express joystick system which smoothly and simultaneously actuates and controls engines, transmissions, propellers and thrusters, able to hold the vessel in any fixed position, crab the boat diagonally or straight sideways and rotate it 360° on its axis.
