The 5.9 Aggressor
Judged a winner in the 2007 Auckland Hutchwilco Boat Show in the “Best All-Purpose Under 6m” class, the gutsy 5.9 Aggressor is justifiably considered the flagship boat in the NZ Boats range.
In terms of utility and performance, it has been reviewed as a serious contender, challenging many true six-metre boats.
The boat itself is built using a blend of hand-laid and chopped strand fibreglass. With a reputation for agile, edge-of-your-seat performance, superseded only by its role as a fishing platform, this is a truly versatile, all-purpose boat.
The entire NZ Boats range are family-friendly, but offer enough fishing features to interest the serious angler. They offer excellent ride and handling, with unimpeachable build quality with unrivaled attention to detail. When you own a boat built by NZ Boats the Sky really is the limit….
The Aggressor contains an eye catching modern look, incorporating curved decks and coamings, a portofino stern, compound curves to the acrylic windscreen, boldly curved stainless bow rail and a solid GRP bimini top with spoiler making the Aggressor a true style icon of the 21st century.
A beamy boat at t 2.495m with a 26 degree deep vee hull provides unbelievable performance in the rough while wide flats and large strakes provide lift and offer stability at rest. The fine entry point with plenty of flare helps direct spray away from the boat giving a dry ride in all conditions.
Construction and Finish
Aggressors are built using a blend of hand-laid and chopped strand fibreglass, and the production environment’s hunidity and temperature are monitored / manged for optimum curing. The boats are fitted with a liner and watertight compartments in the structure provide a positive buoyancy hull. It won’t sink if swamped.
Zenith boats come with a five year structural hull warranty and two year workmanship guarantee -the result of a rigorous quality assurance programme. We have a 75 step checklist, which sees every component used in production recorded and tracked with identification numbers. Construction quality does not compromise style or aesthetics.
The Aggressor’s features equip it for ultimate boating versatility. It’s an easy all purpose boat – equally adapt at towing water toys, fishing, diving or cruising at sunset. The standard set up has an obvious fishing bias and is a true “load the tackle and bait and go” boat. With a beam of 2.495m and a spacious cabin up front there is plenty of space for the whole family or comfortable fishing for up to half a dozen.
The Aggressor boasts plenty of storage with fore and aft lockers under the cockpit sole which swallow plenty of gear along with more storage in the seat bases, cockpit side pockets, cubby holes around the dash, under the squabs in the cabin and in the wide cabin shelves. Leaving plenty of space for food and drink in the padded chilli bins which double as additional seating for the crew.
