In 2015 Dongara Marine was commissioned to construct a resin infused composite wheelhouse for Daydawn Fisheries. The wheelhouse was built in Dongara whilst Xtreme Marine built the hull in Geraldton at the same time. In October the near finished wheelhouse was transported to Geraldton and fitted to the hull.
Daydawn is the largest cray boat built in Australia. It has a capacity of 5500kg of live rock lobster. It has full live aboard facilities for up to 11 crew. Dongara Marine were charged with all the internal fitout and paint work as well.
The internal and external finish is one of pleasure boat standards allowing the crew to live in exceptional conditions whilst staying on-board at sea.
Once again the boat was completed in the unbelievable time frame of 8 months.
