WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

    Brett & the Manutere, well i must say that over the last 8 years or more i have been out on day & overnight trips plus the TGA game fishing one base & charter tournaments  with Brett, you would be hard pushed to find a better skipper who will do his upmost to put you on the fish !!! & i mean go the extra mile !! literally, always good for a yarn, (fishing, politics, rugby etc etc,) & not forgetting the overnight trips tradditional continental breakfast, beans, eggs, bacon, toast, & a wicked coffee !

    The Manutere is a solid fishing platform of which i have spent many enjoyable hours aboard, and hope to spend many more !!!!

    Cheers Brett, till next time ! (soon)

    Hi there my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    I couldnt thank Brett and the deckhand enough for such a fun and memorable experience. Even though fishing was supposed to be slow then and some of the guys werent keen fishermen everyone pulled in a few and had an awesome time.

    Would highly recommend TMC to my friends and family and will be booking for future trips with you.  

    Big THANKS from Phillip, Kaye and the boys from Pukekohe.

  • Dear Daphne and Brett.

    I wanted to write to you to acknowledge what a great fishing charter you are running on board  the manutere. We have been on numerous  trips with you lately, and always returned home with fish,after having a great day out with Brett. We have found Brett to be very knowledgeable,friendly and always keen for a laugh. we have been on many different charters over the years, and the manutere rates very highly.

    Ironically, I own my own boat, yet love a day out on the manutere. 

    Keep up the great work. Look forward to seeing you next time!

    Kind regards,

    Shane Janssen
