Never before seen in NZ; new yachts on the water at Auckland On Water Boat Show
The Viaduct Harbour will play host to the first Bavaria Vision 46 and Cruiser 41 seen in New Zealand, at the Auckland On Water Boat Show in September.
Two new Bavaria yachts on display for the first time
This year’s Auckland On Water Boat Show will play host to two yachts, new to New Zealand. Bavaria’s Vision 46 and Cruiser 41 are both Farr Yacht-designed to cater to cruising sailors who enjoy spending as much time as they can onboard.
At 13.99-metres, and with two-to-three bedrooms based on your preferences, the Vision 46 is designed to incorporate every luxury while remaining easy to sail. An optional push-button tacking system means the yacht’s able to be sailed single or short-handed and drop down bow and stern thrusters coordinated with the main engine mean complete accuracy in tight quarters. Each floor plan includes a separate shower room and one or two heads depending on your customisation and reviewers say the boat is set to create a new stand-ard in the owner-cruiser category. One of those new standards is the exceptional cockpit table, electronically lowered to be converted into a daybed – a first in the production cruising class.
Bavaria’s Cruiser 41 displays a maximised water length, and a LOA of 12.35-metres, delivering total free-dom and outstanding performance. The easy-to-handle yacht has twin helms, a single rudder, and a clean, unfettered feel thanks to intelligent arrangement of the hatches and genoa tracks. A flexible cockpit table boasts an integrated chart plotter and large lockers under the cockpit floor mean there’s plenty of room for equipment. The lower able transom is a head-turner and designed to drastically increase access to water. Both yachts will be on display at the Auckland On Water Boat Show for visitors to explore.
Orakei Yacht Sales will showcase Jeanneau’s new NC9 at the show.
Follow up to popular NC11; NC9 will be presented by Orakei Yacht Sales to showgoers.
With Jeanneau’s NC11 a noted success for its open-plan living, panoramic layout and light, open feel, it made sense for the respected yard to create a smaller version of the design which incorporated all of its best features.
NC9 is perfectly matched to our waters and climate, created in the spirit of Jeanneau’s NC line, in a com-pact, go-anywhere model. At 9.43-metres LOA there’s plenty of room to move in this boat, which has been designed with absolute comfort in mind in a strikingly-modern style. With a draft of just 1.15-metres, we’re sure this exciting new model will be popping up in New Zealand’s waters. The NC9 will be on display at the Auckland On Water Boat Show for visitors to explore, alongside the Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 349, also new to Orakei Marine.
A striking 13-metre elite sedan, custom designed for each customer.
Scott Lane Boat Builders showcase a custom-designed boat, designed and built in New Zealand.
Newly-launched Odysseia, built by Scott Lane Boat Builders, is a striking 13-metre sedan commis-sioned and built to Scott Lane’s exact specifications. After building six motoryachts in the elite Bill Upfold-designed style, Lane decided he should build one for him and his family.
Hand-crafted by Lane’s team in their Clevedon workshop, every detail was overseen by the eventual owner; Lane himself. An entry-level launch designed with familial comfort and visibility in mind, Odysseia is majestic yet simple, with spacious berths and a seamless indoor-outdoor flow.
Odysseia will be on display for visitors to explore at the show, and the Scott Lane team has her sis-ter ship already under construction at their Papakura workshop.
The show runs from 25 to 28 September in Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour and is New Zealand’s only on-water boat show. Catering for all on-water passions and providing hundreds of experts ready to share their knowledge with you, this is the place to get set for a summer on the water.
From first time boat owners, to mates clubbing together to buy their first boat, and the serious boatie looking to upgrade, the show is a must-visit. Exhibitors will include an outstanding selection of over 100 boats in the Viaduct for visitors to explore, as they buy, dream, or compare their options before making their next pur-chase.
The Auckland On Water Boat Show is your show, and there’ll be plenty of rewards for heading along, in-cluding the chance to win a seven day charter for two from The Moorings in Tonga, including airfares from Auckland, as well as two $1000 prize packages to be won each day.
