Super-slick, go-fast racing yachts aren’t always synonymous with wallet-busting costs, as is proved by the new Beau 770 streaking around Auckland’s Waitemata Harbour.

Boat test: Jeanneau NC14

With the swim platform lowered, access to the water is superb.

The Jeanneau NC14 Savvy Too is the first NC14 in New Zealand, bound for a new home in the Marlborough Sounds.

Boat review: Finnmaster Pilot 8

Cockpit layout works on many levels, including entertaining.

Big trailer boats are very much in vogue these days, blending the space and comfort of a small launch with the convenience of trailer launching and storage.

If, as the saying goes, good things take time, then, after 26 years things should be pretty darn spectacular. Fortunately for Tony Raven his new yacht Time lives up to all expectations. She’s a unique, bespoke vessel that ticks all the owner’s boxes.
