Rick and Robin warmly welcome you to “Phantom” – our first home together – where we raised our son Jackson.

For us, sailing and hospitality are a way of life so you’ll have a real slice of New Zealand lifestyle as soon as you come aboard. With many sea voyages behind us, from the Caribbean to Cape Horn and throughout the Pacific, you will be in good hands and friendly company.

Both New Zealand licensed captains, Rick is an Auckland native who left New Zealand on his yacht in 1974 and Robin was born and raised in New York City. They met in the Caribbean and sailing has been their life for the last 35 years.

“Fantastic day! Great food, great company, great stories and of course great sailing.”

Peter and Kirsty – UK

” Thanks for this beautiful day. Your company, your food and your boat! Great way to discover the Bay of Islands”

Anna and Frank – Germany
