Overview

Waikawa Fishing Company is looking for 2x Skippers to join our team for our vessels Kobus and Santa Rosa.

Kobus is a 30m Aluminium vessel which has just received a whole lot of love over the past 4 months. With a brand spanking new engine, revamp of her wheelhouse and a seriously good-looking paint job she is ready to sail.

Santa Rosa is a 25m length steel vessel, the newest to our fleet, needs someone to care for her as much as we do!

Both vessels have most recently been Ling trapping and we believe the Kobus has found her niche in doing so. Santa Rosa could be an exciting new opportunity for someone who wants to have a crack at squid jigging and/or tuna or she may carry on with her ling trapping. The world is your oyster with her and we would love to chat to the right candidate about her next exciting move…
