Hailing from one of Australia's most prestigious and respected boatyards - Norman Wright & Sons in Brisbane, Weapon is a credit to the master craftsman who hand built her. She is a proven 63' custom sport fisher that has stood the test of time. She has cruised and fished both East and West coasts of Australia and came back home to the East Coast across the bottom of Australia on her own back in early 2020. She is beautifully appointed and has been meticulously maintained by her current, and previous owners.

Weapon has just completed a recent extensive yard period at Norman Wright Brisbane where she underwent cosmetic, structural, and electrical upgrades (see extensive list below). There is literally nothing to spend on this boat and she is turn-key ready for fishing and long-range cruising. Certification currently in final stages for 2C survey, Weapon would be well suited as a charter boat in Nth Qld for the heavy tackle season, or as a privately owned game boat. She is a true blue water cruiser, with cruise speed of 24 Knots and top speed of 32 knots, her range is an impressive 400 Nm at cruise (with 10% in reserve) from her twin Series 2000 V-12 MTU 1350hp engines. She runs incredibly dry and smooth thanks to her warped hull with variable deadrise running along its length that varies from bow to stern, with most of the Vee positioned up front where you want it and a flatter aft section for improved stability at rest. Weapon has a classic Carolina flared bow, which is not only stunning to look at, it helps greatly with deflecting spray away from the boat when running into a head sea and creates extra bow lift when running in heavy seas.

Her fit out is world class with high end appliances from Miele and Gaggenau throughout, and an extensive list of custom options and electronics installed to please the fussiest of owners/skippers. Her 4 cabin, 6 berth layout is spacious and well-appointed, as are her 2 generous heads with separate shower in each. The engine room is very well laid out with all equipment within easy reach for visual inspection and maintenance. The MTU engines have low hours - 3300hrs and have been well maintained. There is a new 22.5Kva Onan generator installed in 2020 with only 280hrs of service, and a high-capacity water maker for extended trips away.
