Boat Hire Rates (without skipper)

Licensed to carry 6 day passengers or 4 overnight passengers, our Stabicraft is the only self drive hire boat in the NT licensed for recreational hire up to 30 nautical miles from any coast in the NT and overnight hire.

You must have experience operating boats in the NT to hire the vessel or a boat license. You also have the option of heading out on a fishing charter for a day with one of our fishing guides before hiring the boat and skippering yourself.

Your standard boat hire begins in the morning at Dinah Beach boat ramp car park for a safety and operational brief before launching the vessel. Retrieval is generally before 5.00pm.

Launch and/or retrieval from Dundee Beach is available for minimum 3 day hire. Please contact us to discuss additional fees.

‘Myself and 3 others just did an overnight trip to Bathurst Island and the Stabi performed like a dream. She is a very well maintained and kitted out boat. When under way she is a very smooth ride and when pulled up fishing she is steady as a rock. I cannot rate this boat highly enough and a huge thanks to Jordan who is a legend to deal with. Cheers.’

‘The boat was perfect for an extended trip. Jordan was the penultimate professional to deal with right throughout the booking process and was always available during our 3 day hire. The boat offered full shade during the hot days. The new motor purred and had heaps of grunt. We will definitely be return customers!’

‘Awesome boat and service. We recently hired the Stabi for three days in windy conditions and the big girl was a pleasure to drive handling the rough wether like a dream. I would definitely recommend Jordan’s boat to any wanting to fish out of Darwin. Such an easy and safe way to go out wide and fish for big fish at a great price.’
