Awesome Charters is owned by the Mold Family who is very passionate about diving and fishing and are based in the Far North, the story on how they became involved with a Charter Boat at the oppposite end of the country, all began when Pete was looking for a boat that had the capability and services to allow friends and family the opporunity to explore more of the New Zealand Coastline. On his trip down to secure Awesome he meet some of the locals of Bluff at one of the local establishents and that night he hatched a plan with his 2 good mates on how Awesome could remain in Bluff and keep servicing the local community as it had done since it's arrival.
Awesome was built in Fremantle, Western Australia by boat building company Condor Marine. Jack the previous owner purchased her in 2009 and sailed her back to New Zealand in September.
