These NZ-designed and built Noelex 25s will enable you to have a fantastic holiday afloat. They are ideal for a couple, three friends, or a small family. Fast but simple and responsive to sail they are easily handled by two people. Well-equipped and spacious accommodation includes quarterberth, settees port and starboard, forward berth, galley, table for dining, and a forward head which can be closed off for privacy. A lifting keel and robust tender let you explore the wonderful beaches, bays, historical sites, and towns in this world-renowned cruising ground. Charters are usually two to five days, you can choose to have an instructor aboard on day one to refresh skills. We have five of these boats so can organise rallies for groups.
