She is a 36ft Gaff Yawl with tan sails and can carry six people for a full or half day, or a romantic evening cruise. While out on the harbour you get the chance to sail her yourself, or just sit back and watch the wildlife. Lyttelton is only 15min from down town Christchurch and seems another world away

"Oyster" is the oldest charter boat in the South Island, but always turns heads from other boating people. So why not run away to sea for the day. To make a booking call Mike.
