I would just like to drop you a line saying not only thank you again for all your help in purchasing my new Shelfrunner but also I would like to say that the new Sailfish is better than I could ask for. I have had cats in the past but the design of this new hull has impressed me greatly. On my last two trips pushing into a 25 kt North Wester for 2 hrs the boat just did it’s job and at no time did we feel uncomfortable. As a fisherman and father the safety of my family comes first – so when we are out wide chasing blue fin I will be more at ease in knowing that the Sailfish will get us home.
I’ve been fishing off shore in trailer boats for over 20 years and longed for something reliable and comfortable. I had researched many models and various types of boats but couldn’t find value anywhere near that offered by the Sailfish range – I knew it was the right style boat for me as soon as I saw it – choosing the model was the hard part!
When I purchased my Sailfish 2400 Gamefisher my fishing took on a whole new perspective. I was able to fish grounds that were previously well out of reach to me, and it opened up a whole new dimension in fishing for us.. we went from fishing the inshore reefs to going wide and catching big game Yellowfin, Bluefin and Marlin on a regular basis – we often now head out 100km east of the coast and cover over 250km in a day, I can troll over 200km in a day with ease knowing that my Sailfish Cat can handle the conditions, get me home every time and still have fuel in reserve.
In days gone by we would tow our boats up to Port Stephens for the weekend – now we troll there and back and it’s great being able to fish comfortably in conditions that many wouldn’t consider going out in. In my first year of owning a
Sailfish, Reel Game took out heaviest Marlin of the year for the Botany Bay Game Fishing Club on a big blue caught well wide of Sydney – something that wouldn’t have been possible in my previous boat.
In a Sailfish Cat you can head far offshore not only in comfort and style, but knowing that you are safe and going to be able to get home with ease regardless of the conditions.
Gavan and Ashley at Webbe Marine are easy to deal with and professional in every aspect of what they do – if you’re looking for a top end boat with an edge on others and you end up at Webbe Marine then rest assured – you’ve ended up at the right place!
Thanks again guys.
We live on the Gold Coast and fishing is our pastime and
when we were looking for our next twin hull we had in our minds what we were
looking for and then along came Sailfish, from the moment we saw this boat we
were very impressed with the outlay and the finish of the boat.
The performance of the boat is exceptional, we have the
2600 Sailfish with 2.8 beam which handles very well outside the Seaway in the
rough weather, we also do a lot of fishing in the Broadwater, twin 150 HP Honda
4 stroke gives us plenty of power if needed, they are quiet and economical to
One of the things we enjoyed was being able to go down to
the factory at Ballina to see the progress of the boat being built and were
able to ask for changes to suit our needs.
Our experience with the buying of this boat has been all
the more enjoyable because of the courtesy given to us and the professionalism
of our salesman Gaven Daly from Webbe Marine and boat builder Darren Foster
Our boat is appropriately named “Lets Go
Fishing” and that’s what we love to do, it is an excellent fishing boat
with many extras to make your fishing a pleasurable experience.

I always wanted a sailfish since the first time I saw one but they were only making the bigger models, then I saw the Shelfrunner which was the size I wanted. After reading all the reviews on it I was sure it was
what I wanted, so from there I got in touch with Webbe Marine, Gavan and Ashley where so easy to work with making everything to easy. A few months later I had delivery of my new vessel, a fine looking machine at that.
I have only had the Shelfrunner for a few months now but absolutely love it, I’ve done quite a few offshore trips in it now, some of these trips would of been 120 nm round trip. I always felt safe and comfortable in the Sailfish, it handles exceptionally well and has plenty of fishing room, all round it’s an awesome boat.
Thanks again Gavan and Ashley from Webbe Marine for making it all so easy and on an outstanding boat.
I looked at a lot of boats before choosing the Sailfish Shelfrunner. I wanted a boat that was safe, stable, fast and economical, and that at the same time was a great fishing platform as well as family boat. The Shelfrunner ticked all the boxes and then some. The twin motors with separate fuel tanks and batteries matched with the superbly stable and strong hull make this a boat unrivalled for its safety and sea keeping abilities. The boat handles big seas with aplomb and the twin hulls allow me to comfortably beat much bigger boats back to harbour if the weather turns nasty. Added to all the above is the ease of
towing and the superb trailer. It literally takes 30 Secs to drive the boat onto the self centring trailer and then drive off the ramp. Launching is even easier.
I would recommend this boat without hesitation. The excellent service provided by Gavan and Ashley is also outstanding.
Hi all Boaties /Fisho’s
Recently I was lucky enough to purchase a 5 meter Sailfish Reef Fisher with a Honda 90 four stoke, gotta love those cat’s, they are as stable as any vessel gets, and being a 5 meter vessel it makes for easy towing and storing such as breeze.
Here’s how the story begins, Gone to the boat show with my wife, (I know, I know sometimes not a good idea to take the wife)anyway not looking to update my boat at that point in time, suddenly we came across Webbe Marine and their display, the wife immediately says “ I like the look of those boats ( as you blokes know when the wife say’s I like the look of those boats the battle is half won) so we decide to take a closer look, after about ½ hour of so talking to Gavan and
looking over the boat we had signed up for a brand new 5 meter Sailfish Reef Fisher (Cherrin) easy as that.. Oh buy the way this package came we everything, up grade on the motor size, fire extinguisher, safety gear, EPERB, etc.
So I have had this baby now for around 4 month and it goes like a dream, cuts though the water like nothing else, stable as, which makes fishing just Cherrin, myself and my mate generally go about 10 nautical mile off Sydney and Botany chasing Kingies and such, also content to stay in close for flatties and bream etc. This vessel handles it all. The guy’s at Webbe Marine (Gav and Ash) are among the most professional people that I have had the pleasure to deal with, nothing was too had or to inconvenient for these guy’s, any query that I had were answered in full (and I had some) these guys make you feel welcome, and as corny as this may sound they make you feel like they have known you for ever, and for that
personal touch and professionalism I would not hesitate in recommending Webbe Marine to any of my friends and family when they go to buy a boat.
Once again Gav and Ash I would like to thank you for all your help and time in helping me in purchasing my Sailfish Reef Fisher, could not have got across the line without your help.
PS Gav all my fishing mates thankyou as well..LOL
We recently took delivery of our Sailfish 7700 Platinum and would like to thank you for the professional manner in which you handled our experience, from the original customisation of the boat, right through to the on water delivery. We have owned and operated a number of boats in the past, and can honestly say this was the best purchasing experience we have had, even after the sale, and during our 1st service, the attention to detail was fantastic.
When researching our new boat, we had considered larger game boats, but the flexibility in being able to tow the boat and the ability to customize steered us to the Sailfish. The reports we had heard about the performance all came to fruition on our first outing. We can honestly say this is the best performing offshore boat we have ever owned. In a 2-3m swell, we fly past much larger boats. The stability at rest is also something to be believed, with 3-4 adults on one side, we barely feel the movement.
The Sailfish and Honda package has given us a lot of confidence in big seas, and as you can see by the attached photos the Marlin are certainly attracted to the boat.

The one thing that always stands out is the comfort in ride just gets better and better. Every time I venture out I learn that little bit more about the craft, its design and the sea conditions. Ultimately the one word that I believe sums up your craft is outstanding.
The other day as we were coming back from the shelf, the ground swell was so solid and reaching about 2m on the face that I was able to manoeuvre the craft onto the face of these swells so that we were surfing the face. Each run would last about a kilometer. The real interesting part, the motors were doing only 2900rpm and we were cruising at 26 -28knts. As we would approach the end of a surf run, all I had to do was turn the craft slightly and run with the swell and because we had so much speed we would be up and over the swell in seconds and away we would go again.
Your Sailfish performed beautifully ‘as normal’ and at no time was there ever a feeling of uneasiness whilst operating under such circumstances. All on board had big smiles and all comments directed to the Sailfish were thumbs up.

Having owned and operated Mono’s Sportsfishing Adventures and Byron Professional Charters on the north coast of NSW since 1998, it has been imperative to have a reliable, strong, comfortable vessel to work over the infamous north coast bars.
A large amount of time was put into researching the right vessel for the business. A custom built Sailfish ended up at the top of the list and has proven to be undeniably the right decision.
The ability to custom design the vessel from the floor up is one of the major factors which, after test driving many vessels, turned me towards Sailfish. The finish is superb and design layout is so versatile and user friendly.
The team at Sailfish seems to be able to combine comfort with the usability of a commercial vessel in a way that makes it perfect for those wanting a serious fishing boat with all the creature comforts.
Recently my new Sailfish ‘Windarra’ was delivered and I couldn’t be happier with the finished product. As you can see from the accompanying photo she looks magnificent but her performance is even better.
The combination of Sailfish with some reliable, technologically advanced, fuel efficient Honda outboards has made this the best vessel I’ve ever been on and my clients all agree. Sailfish and Honda – the perfect combination for the serious angler.

For the last 4 years we visited the Sydney Boat Show and looked at every style of boat around, but it was the Sailfish that took our fancy. Why? Because it suited our needs for fishing, cruising, entertaining and most of all safety.
Once we had that test run in the Sailfish 2800 you organised, I was sold on the boat as an excellent handling boat, but we wanted to make it bigger. Being aluminum I was told this was no problem and with the help of Darren from Sailfish we customised a Sailfish 3300 to our design.
Since taking delivery of her last August, we have put her thru all conditions and she handles like a dream – this is one hell of a boat! The Hondas push her to 37 knots and are amazingly economical and quite, and the twin rig is easy to maneuver at the marina. She is a very safe and stable boat and gives a smooth and comfortable ride at high speeds in choppy seas. With the perfect blend of appointments for serious fishing, sleeping and cruising she is a great all rounder. And most importantly of all my family love it!
To cap it off Ashley, I’m more than happy that we chose the Sailfish Catamaran (that we call the “Off Road of the Sea”) from Webbe Marine. Thanks again to you and Gavan for your professional approach to the way you run your business.
