THE FIRST IN A NEW LINE OF EXPEDITION CRAFT the EXPEDITION fifteen is appointed with premium finishes and options that support extended adventures. The new design reflects Naiad’s renowned offshore capability, drawn from its  military and rescue pedigree.

The EXPEDITION fifteen will hit the water in late 2021 and be powered  by the new triple V12 Mercury 600HP outboards.

The first in the Expedition range is currently under construction on the east coast of Australia, designed for independent adventurers who need to know their boat can back up their appetite for exploration with the very highest standards of performance and safety.

“From the Bay of Islands to Milford Sound, the South Pacific atolls to the farthest reaches of Northern Australia, this range has been designed and built to specifically explore these remote locations with confidence, “ says The Whiskey Project Group’s Ryan Carmichael.
