Rob King - Extreme 650 HT

After having a few aluminum boats built by various boat builders around New Zealand, I can say with the absolute confidence that the boats build by Extreme Boats are of the highest quality materials, and the finish is right up there with the best. I visited the factory on several stages during the build, the staff were always pleasant to deal with, the modifications I asked for were no trouble and the whole experience was enjoyable.

Peter McGregor - Extreme 700 Game King

When Jennie and I made the decision to purchase a new boat we had a set criteria and a budget to work with. I have owned quite a few glass boats over the years this time Jennie wanted an aluminum hull as we would be launching the boat into the ocean from the beach at Opito Bay plus their would be dive tanks, fishing gear etc. and if the Gel coat got chipped I would be impossible to live with.

With 3 sons aged from 17 to 22 and mad keen on both fishing and water sports I wanted an all round boat that would fit our family requirements, be well built and look smart and handle a vast array of conditions. I chose the Extreme 650 Game king because it fitted all these criteria.
