Hop aboard this beautiful 53 ft motor boat rental and go cruising around Whakatane! She’s not only gorgeous but she’s also comfortable, and the perfect way to spend your next fishing adventure on a motor yacht charter in New Zealand!

This 53-foot craft has some impressive qualities, endearing her to all who step aboard. A large uncluttered cockpit area comes to the immediate attention of the discerning angler, as does the full walk around decks. NZ’s largest live bait tank also stands out, sometimes being confused as a spa bath! Since utilizing live bait techniques has always been an integral part of our operation, this oversized tank is invaluable. An extra large fish hold capable of storing over three tonnes of ice ensures an ultra-fresh catch upon your return to port – cold drinks as well! Fifty-rod holders keep rods and reels safe, secure and ready to use at any time.

Powered by twin 500 hp Yanmar diesel engines, the vessel is capable of 22 knots although a cruising speed of 9-12 is more the norm. Her wide beam and deep draft mean she is a very stable platform to fish from.

What type of yacht should I charter?

No matter what type of yacht you choose to charter, we know that you will have a fantastic time on the water. If you are more about the journey, and want a relaxing time aboard, then choose from one of the many sailboats on the platform. If you are more about the destination, and going fast, check out the powerboats on Sailo. For an exclusive experience, Sailo recommends chartering a luxurious yacht for the day. Finally, Sailo has access to many event boats as well for group outings from 50 - 1,000 guests. If you are still unsure, then just ask! more...

What should I bring?

Bring yourself, and some comfortable clothes suitable to the season you are going to be out on the water. Please keep in mind that it is often 10 degrees cooler out on the water, so a jacket or windbreaker is never a bad idea. We also recommend bringing a hat, sunscreen, and sunglasses, as well as a swimsuit if appropriate for your charter location. Please coordinate with your captain regarding any food or drinks that you wish to bring aboard. For term-charters, Sailo recommends using soft-sided luggage, and keeping it simple. more...

How long does a rental last?

The basic daily rental is structured as either a quarter-, half-, or full-day. A quarter-day is two hours, a half-day is four hours, and a full-day is eight hours. You can also discuss a custom trip with the boat by contacting the owner through Sailo. Most term charters (weekly rentals) are from Saturday to Saturday. Keep in mind that the boat generally needs to be back at the dock by Friday evening, and you will need to be off the boat on Saturday morning so they can prepare the boat for the next guests. more...
