Fairwind New Zealand Yacht Charters offers well presented yachts for bareboat charter in the Bay of Islands

Our bareboat charter yacht fleet is based in the port of Opua at the heart of the Bay of Islands, New Zealand's premier cruising destination.

A bareboat yacht charter is a great way to discover this wonderful area. You are free to make your own itinerary and sail as little or as much as you like. Secluded beaches, island walks, fishing, dolphins and penguins; the Bay of Islands has all of this - and the best way to experience it is by boat.

The fleet in our family company includes yachts for charter from 28-feet to 45-feet. This is the widest selection of bareboat yachts available in the Bay of Islands. Our boats can be recognized by the high standard of their maintenance and presentation. Better maintenance is our calling card.

The area in which our boats are licensed for bareboat charter extends from Cape Karikari, 60 miles north of the Bay of Islands to Cape Colville in the south. This is 170 miles of the best sailing that New Zealand has to offer.

Although bareboat (sail yourself) charters are our primary focus, our yachts are also available with a skipper or cook, and sailing tuition is available for those who need a hand with learning the ropes.

Fairwind is one of just three bareboat charter companies based in the Bay of Islands and with our yachts sized from 8.5 to 14 metres we have the widest range and best equipped bareboat sailboats available in this area.

Our goal is to give you a trouble free sailing holiday.

Kim and Greta of Fairwind Charters have 30 years of experience in the yacht charter industry and we know this area like we know our own home - because this is our home! We would love to share it with you.

Let FairWind provide you with carefree cruising!
