We’ll sail you to the beautiful beaches in the Bay of Islands – quiet, remote places that will truly take your breath away – a sailing trip you won’t forget –  sheltered anchorages in beautiful bays, private white-sand coves with crystal clear water, swimming, snorkelling and fascinating history…..and great hikes!

Our well known sailing charters in the Bay of Islands shows the quality of our yacht. Phantom is an ex-racing yacht, which has been our liveaboard sailing/cruising boat for many years .  Comfortable and high-performing, guaranteeing an exciting (and very safe!) daysailing charter in the bay.

Phantom was built by C&C Yachts in 1972, and was our live-aboard home for 18 years. Experience the beauty, pedigree and safety of this heavy displacement performance sailing yacht.
