Designed and manufactured for serious game-fishing and luxury cruising


Seriously Soft Riding

The balance of beam at the chine, the stem shape and the planing strakes of each and every Tristram are unrivaled in the trailer boat industry. Boating New Zealand Magazine have claimed that Tristram Hardtops ‘ride like a dream’.

Perfectly Accurate

Upon the inception of the Tristram 741 Offshore, Tristram were the first fibreglass trailer boat manufacturer in New Zealand to draw a complete boat on CAD (Computer Aided Design) software with plugs cut via CNC (Computer Numerically Controlled) routers. As a result each and every new model is perfectly accurate.

Diving, Fishing & Overnighting

Tristram hardtops have been designed for divers, offshore fishermen and couples who enjoy overnighting. Emphasis has been placed on large cockpit spaces, ample stowage and overall functionality.

One-piece Moulded Internal Liner

Each Tristram’s foredeck, side decks, side pockets, floor, seats and dash are all one large article of moulded fibreglass, which creates a strong and easy to clean internal liner. Torsional strength (resistance to twisting) in a boat is very important, given a boat rides diagonally over waves. Tristram’s one-piece moulded internal liner ensures the boat remains rigid in even the roughest of seas.

Fibreglass Moulded Keel

Standard on all Tristrams, this performance enhancing & safety feature is in many ways very similar to the tail on an airplane, and assists in maintaining direction, enabling your Tristram to perform like it’s on ‘rails’ through tight turns, without losing traction. Each moulded keel is finished off with a full-length brass keel strip to protect your hull from boat ramp, rock and beach damage.

Class-leading Beam

Every model in the Tristram Range features class-leading beam, offering brilliant stability at rest. Your Tristram will remain stable while passengers move about the boat, and stability while underway is benefited also. Excellent cockpit space is gained from additional beam also, which is paramount if you’re taking out family and friends for a fish, dive or cruise.

We cruised from OBC to the Noises at 6am & got scallops then went to Kawau. Had a great load of fun swimming with seals then hit our Kingy spot. We are living the dream! Stoked with our 741 Offshore. Cut through the choppy conditions there and back no sweat!

Thanks to Kingsley from Tristram Marine for the delivery of our outstanding Tristram 851 Grandeur. The trip over from Auckland to Whitianga proved what an outstanding boat it is! Eating up rough chop at 55km was nothing to this boat.

The Tristram 701 Offshore is another superbly built and impeccably finished offering with the ride and handling to confidently venture out wide.

Seriously soft riding… perfectly accurate… if you’re in the market for a decent-sized fishing & diving boat, this is simply a case of ‘why wouldn’t you’. The Tristram 741 Offshore rides like a dream, looks great & there’s space for Africa.

With the full-length keel, well-researched hull design, along with the relatively heavy displacement of the Tristram 881 Offshore, the ride is comfortable and gives you a strong sense of security.

The Tristram 741 Offshore has absolutely everything you need and more… it’s a fantastic package.  I may have found my new favourite boat.
