Floating bach ie large launch. Previously ex warship Moa gone AWOL, refurbished and renamed Flightless. She is100 tonne, 27m long with BBQ's and large outdoor living areas including upper sun deck and mostly enclosed lower deck for outdoor living. Would easily cater for up to 5 families of four with plenty of separate living spaces and activity areas.

Located in the Queen Charlotte Sound, we are able to pick you up from the ferry terminal wharves, Picton town wharf or Waikawa Bay and cruise as directed by you.

Our cruising area extends from Marlborough Sounds into Cook Strait, D'Urville Island and the Pelorus Sound and Fiordland.

Options for cruising include visiting Ship's Cove, Motuara Island bird sanctuary, Bluemine Island's gun emplacement, the whaling station at Te Awaiti, walk the Queen Charlotte Track, diving, fishing, wine tasting, dining at one of the many resorts, golf or just pick a nice scenic anchorage and kick back and relax.

We can also cater for corporate functions, team building activities and weddings.

Our standard day rate includes Skipper and one crew member who are accommodated separately.
