power boatsSkipper yourself, explore the Bay your way.

Hire a Mac420 to fully appreciate your time in our beautiful Bay of Islands.  Skipper yourself to secluded anchorages and quiet bays.  Drop a line over the side and catch your dinner. Our 4.2-meter boats with 50hp outboards are safe, stable boats for bay exploration, fishing and diving.  Suitable for three adults or two adults and up to three children.

  • The high sides provide security when in a heavy sea and with a young family on board.

The boat is equipped with all the Maritime New Zealand required safety equipment, including life jackets, VHF radio and first aid kit.  The cuddy cabin provides a dry storage area up front and the bimini top provides shelter from sun and rain showers.

All you need to bring is your lunch, some sunscreen and your swimming gear.
