From the Beneteau stable comes this well known 29 footer. With a double cabin aft and another smaller double forward it is a roomy boat for its size. Best suited for a couple or a family with two small children.


The bigger sister to the B285, with the increased volume giving more space in the cabins and saloon. This is our smallest boat comfortable for two couples for shorter charters.

LOTUS 10.6

The New Zealand designed Lotus 10.6 is a very popular yacht amongst New Zealand sailors. Different Drummer is the Mark II version with a stern extension giving a length of 11.2m.


Also known as the Moorings 352, this large volume 35 footer is another well known boat from the Beneteau stable and a popular bareboat charter boat throughout the world.


This 39 footer, also known as the Moorings 403, is the smallest of our three cabin boats although it is almost identical in interior volume and layout to the slightly larger Beneteau 405.


This is "The Moorings" version of the very popular Beneteau Oceanis 400. Well thought out use of interior space and a good hull design make for comfortable sailing for up to three couples.

ELAN 434

No other bareboat this well equipped in the Bay! Genset, bow thruster, in boom furling main and even a diesel heater. Two double cabins and a twin berth cabin. Two heads and showers.


This modified version of the Beneteau Oceanis 440 was designed by Bruce Farr with comfortable cruising in mind, yet with enough spirit and agility to offer exciting sailing for those who want it.
