A trip in to the beach


Enjoy the beautiful waters of New Zealand's cruising play ground.

Experience a great New Zealand boating holiday - bareboat (sail yourself) charter a sail-boat from CharterLink Auckland in the magic of the HaurakiGulf or to the Bay of Islands.

Sail from our base in Auckland's Bayswater marina, to the islands, superb beaches and anchorages of the Hauraki Gulf. Cruise the coast to the Bay of Islands. Enjoy the fishing, snorkeling, diving while taking in the unspoilt scenery...

CharterLink is one of the largest bareboat charter companies in NewZealand, and the biggest fleet operating out of Auckland. If you are 'shopping around' on the Web to sail the Hauraki Gulf, then other apparent options are probably CharterLink boats. So, Congratulations, on finding us here! Let us work with you directly to make sure you get a great sailing holiday!

My husband and I chartered a Bavaria 38 for 12 days in the Hauraki Gulf - an excellent cruising area. She was very carefully maintained and sailed very well. Also a very good, reliable engine. Well equipped with lots of useful storage space.
Peter Drew was exceedingly helpful and friendly. He helped to ensure that we had a really good holiday.

Very helpful operator. The boat and information was perfect and Rob was most helpful in getting us out on the gulf and also assisting with our return.

Boat was immaculate, and functioned well. Sails were adequate. Stern door needed adjustment, which I assume has been accomplished

Chartering from a great distance like Germany can be tricky - not so with CharterLink. From the beginning CharterLink was perfect: Our charter was launched on Saturday. When I wrote to Rob that we would be traveling with a camperhome before the sailing trip he immediately suggested to bring our luggage already on Friday on the yacht. Rob is very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and relaxed.
Most of our sailing so far was in the Mediterranean and the Caribbean. The Hauraki Gulf is a nice sailing area, too – we really loved it – wunderbar! Yacht condition was very good with everything you need. Location of the marina is perfect, out of the city but easily reached by ferry.

Great boat. Rob was very accommodating as our circumstances changed. Would recommend CharterLink as a top shelf yacht charter company. Thank you CharterLink.
