We have purchased two boats through Scott White, during both these purchases we found Scott to be professional, efficient, helpful and honest.   Our latest purchase being a 2012 Caribbean 40 Mk 2, powered by 2x 500 Cummins QSC engines.

We are thoroughly enjoying our time on the water in our Caribbean and very impressed with how it performs.

Caribbean’s sea capabilities are well known and talked about, however it is not until owning one that we realised just how good the hull really is.  Whether it’s the more comfortable ride in a rough sea or sitting at rest whilst fishing, it is definitely superior to our previous boats.  The match with the Cummins engines is great, making the boat extremely responsive and quick to get up on the plane, it cruises extremely comfortably, at 20 plus knots, even in a rough or choppy sea where we would have reduced speed in our previous boats. 

We have owned two Caribbean boats the first one was a 32FB which we owned for eight years.

Scott sold me a 35FB in 2017 which I am delighted with.

The Caribbean brand is second to none and they certainly catch fish.

Since Scott has been managing the distribution of Caribbean boats in New Zealand the volume and variety of models has visibly increased.

That growth is because Scott has a totally professional approach and is of the highest integrity.

We do not hesitate to recommend Scott to anyone who needs honest and reliable broker.

The large cockpit space is excellent for both fishing or relaxing and entertaining.  The interior layout makes the most of its 40 feet with good sized spaces rather than trying to squeeze too much into the space.  It’s well equipped, good size galley has a layout that’s easy to work in.  And at the end of the day it’s great to know, though this not the largest vessel we have owned, it definitely has the largest and most comfortable beds.

We recommend Scott White as a Broker, his straight forward honest approach is refreshing and we would have no hesitation in dealing with him again.

Our recommendation to anyone wondering whether they should purchase a Caribbean, is don’t hesitate, you won’t regret it and we hope you have has much fun in your Caribbean as we are!

We were first time buyers of a launch coming from a history of small boats over a period of 30 odd years.

We always desired owning a Caribbean 40 one day, but always hesitant of taking that next step and unsure of the related costs, size, right boat for our needs and all the unknowns.

A friend recommended talking with Scott, as he knew everything there was to know when it came to the Carribeans.

Scott went completely out of his way for us, firstly driving from Auckland to Whangarei to talk us thru the process, the boat specs and how we depicted using the boat.

He then meet with us out of normal hours to show us a boat in Whangamata then onto a second in Tauranga (which we ended up purchasing from a long-time client of Scott’s who had just purchased a new 40).

We traded our 740Mclay with Scott and thru the whole process Scott made it simple, he was extremely professional and never once placed any pressure on us.

The after sales service was over and above and Scott was always available to talk with for any questions I had for him.

Now the fun has begun with our boating, the Caribbean is easy to handle, handles anything you throw at it!! Fantastic sized boat, we have comfortably been away for days with 5 adults And we have endured some huge seas and always felt safe!!

The running costs have been equivalent to our Mclay and we have caught a staggering amount of gamefish in a short period of time and have done quite nicely thank you in several big game comps.

Go Caribbean!!

I was looking to upgrade my existing small launch with something a little more comfortable when I had the opportunity to fish the Port Vila Classic aboard Mama Mia a Caribbean 32 now based in Vanuatu. This boat certainly proved not only a marvelous vessel in any sea conditions but also a fish magnet. Upon returning home I set about contacting Scott with the idea of purchasing a Caribbean. This was duly achieved and the whole experience of dealing with Scott was nothing but professional. If Scott said something it happened, if you want any further information it happens. The boat continues to live up to all expectations as does Scotts continued backup and as such I have no hesitation recommending both the brand and the agent.
