To build anything of quality requires commitment. At Pinnacle, it began with a concept for the ideal boat before putting in place the building blocks to achieve it. Every detail was an opportunity for excellence. There were no short cuts. Different techniques, inventions and technologies were trialled and, when proven, applied. The result is something that can take on all comers.

Pinnacle Boats. Game on.


As you would expect from a boat maker that’s interested more in quality than quantity, Pinnacle Boats are not earmarked for mass production. In fact, the focus is more on customising specifically to each and every customers requirements. Whether you’re into diving, fishing, family fun, or a combination of all three, you’ll have the opportunity to work hand in hand with the team to deliver precisely what you desire. At completion, a Pinnacle can be a boat with your fingerprints all over it.

Offshore. Game On.

Since he could walk, the founder of Pinnacle Boats has been fishing up and down the Coromandel, in and offshore. That’s why you’ll notice everything aboard is set up for action. Self-draining decks, live-bait tanks, step-through transom, heaps of stowage space – it’s all been thought through right down to the hard-wearing teak look-alike deck of the huge fishing platform.  But that doesn’t mean there’s been a compromise on creature comforts. With a choice of open or enclosed hardtop, Pinnacle provides every amenity you need to fish, eat, sleep and then fish again – whether you’re day-tripping or going on an extended expedition.


Having worked for some of the most respected boat builders in
New Zealand and Australia, Pinnacle’s Alistair McEwen has brought his
30 years of experience and knowledge as well as several key colleagues
to where it all began.

As a kid growing up on the Coromandel, Alistair dreamed of building boats and at Whitianga he’s pulled together a team with unmatched expertise in construction, fabrication, fit-out and painting.

As well as being a boat builder, Pinnacle is also an established boatyard that has been repairing, upgrading, rebuilding and refurbishing boats on the Coromandel Peninsula for years. So if your Pinnacle needs servicing, repair or an upgrade, you can always bring it back to the people who created it.
