Discover the Herley Captain

The Herley Captain’s style and presence is derived from the smaller Herley Commander, with the added benefits that come with that extra volume. Available in both inboard and outboard versions this premium powerboat is built for epic adventures out at sea with the whole family.

With options for an enclosed or open cabin, the layout is adaptable for any situation, family fun or big fishing trips. With room for a full galley, enclosed toilet and sleeping quarters, the Captain is a trailerable Launch. Self-draining decks mean you can keep her at sea for long periods with-out worrying about bilge pumps and batteries keeping her afloat. Offering Herley’s high-quality and detailed finish inside and out, the Herley Captain is sure to impress.

The Herley Captain was designed from the hull up.

The hull was conceived from years of experience out at sea, combining traditional displacement methods and proven hull shapes we have completely re-developed what is usually considered inside New Zealand as a fast-planing hull.

With 60 degrees of entry at the bow, we split the force of a wave before it arrives at your feet. And with a relatively flat aft area she is both stable under way and at rest. 

We provide a hull that you can rely on getting home safely and comfortably in when the weather turns rough

Clear Windscreen

Commercial practicality brings you an uninterrupted view from the helm. Not Only do you get great visibility, but the windscreen design also provides you with, zero dash glare during the day, no instrument glare at night, and when sea spray hits the screen it simply falls away.


Clean lines, and practical solutions are the key to a Herley boats cockpit. The Cockpit retains its easy flow through to the Wheelhouse over the teak detailed Ultralon floor, past two large storage bins under the gunnels, underfloor storage, two flip seats in the forward corners, through to the 3 stacker sliding door giving you the ultimate flow between shelter and where the action takes place. Conveniently placed behind the door partitions is the Head and shower cubicle.


The Captain’s cockpit features a large bait station, with 6 rod holders, drink holders, knife slots, tackle pockets and a flush filleting board measuring at over 800 wide and 500 deep, all internally plumbed and drained overboard. A large bait tank with integrated tuna tube completes your fishing centre.


The Captain features a 900×610 removable Teak Dinning table that conveniently stows when not in use under the forward berth. The Helm is completed with a custom Herley Dash and switching, under the Helm seat is drawer storage , and hidden strip lighting is recessed into the ceiling.


The Unique Flip-Galley integrated into the side of the vessel creates a full 900mm high working space yet folds away into the side of the boat. It features a 3 burner stove top, and large rectangular sink and prep space. All designed to disapear to regain the space back in the wheelhouse. Situated under the bench seat are two 40L fridge units, that can be individually switched between fridge and freezer mode.
