The premier boat BUILDERS and designers in QLD

For over 20 years, Hooker Boats has earned a reputation for building high quality, robust, comfortable fishing and leisure vessels that produce a smooth ride every time.

Manufactured in Cairns, Australia, the range includes Tiller Steer, Cabin, Console, Bass boats as well as the Scorpion Ski. All boats are built to handle Australian sea conditions, including the open waters around the Torres Strait Islands and Papua New Guinea.

Safety is our priority. Constructed from 100% fiberglass, all our vessels feature lightweight honeycomb flooring boosting positive floatation without rotting, and our hulls are filled with foam.

Featuring an outstanding ride. Our vessels perform second to none on the water, featuring hand-laid deep vee fiberglass hulls, reducing impact and shock as they cut through the water and deliver an outstanding smooth ride.

We are tough. Every Hooker is made from the latest core and reinforcement materials, guaranteeing strength and durability, as well as taking on the challenges of even the toughest weather conditions.

Boat space is your space. All Hooker boats are custom built and designed and include an internal floor plan to meet your individual needs and our fiberglass fuel tanks are built with larger capacities. Our boats are built to suit you, not the builder.

A Hooker boat will last a lifetime. Subjected to rigorous testing and hand laid with outstanding attention to detail, the fiberglass construction ensures no chance of corrosion or cracking.

“Our main focus is our quality and keeping our customers happy. Along with that, is to keep producing new models as the years go by. We build pre-dominantly deep vee hulls. The deep vee hulls give a better ride in rough waters. Our boats are suited for offshore and offwater, in 25-knot winds you can go full throttle in these boats, they are that good. We pride ourselves on being the premier performance boat builders.” – John Margetts, Hooker Boats
