A great way to enjoy Auckland harbour. The crew's explanation and handling of the yacht was effortless, professional, and clear, enabling all those on board to activity enjoy the pleasure of crewing and steering this wonderful boat.

We had great wind and the crew was very professional. It might be a little daunting to anyone a little shy around the water or has limited mobility.
