The author offers information on surplus fishing boats in New Zealand and Australia. The author believes that a significant number of surplus fishing boats can still be readily adapted to a host of other potential activities. The author describes the features of lobster boats, tuna catchers and trawlers constructed in the 1980s and 1990s. The author also notes that these aging vessels have great potential as tourist and dive charter boats.
