California Kiwi

Port - Opua, Bay of Islands, Northland

Gary Hack designed his high performance racer cruiser in association with Brett Bakewell-White to provide exhilarating sailing without compromising comfort below decks. With a massive cockpit and big beam, she has an enormous amount of deck space and makes a wonderful summer day sailer, making the most of even the slightest breeze.
With an easily rigged spinnaker and dual wheels, even novices can take the helm and experience the thrill of a downwind reach or be part of the crew on one of the Bay of Islands' regular yacht races.Or, if you prefer, Gary will be delighted to take up to 6 adults and two children for a quiet cruise around the Bay, overnighting off the beach on a remote Island and just taking it easy.
