Sailing Yacht Takapuna Overview

Powerful, luxurious and spacious, 112ft Takapuna offers high adventure and excitement plus an amazing amount of interior and deck space to lounge, dine, sunbathe and dance under the stars.

Staffed with a world class crew of 5, no details are overlooked and service is truly five star. She is equipped with numerous water toys and a fabulous walk down stern for easy access to the water or the tender.

The crew will customize your vacation to include any combination of activities or relaxation to satisfy your desires and exceed your expectations. The crew is fun-loving, with diverse backgrounds to help create singularly enjoyable memories that will keep you coming back time and again.

This yacht was once owned by Pamela Stephenson and husband Billy Connolly and they took her on a grand adventure in the Pacific chasing the history of Pamela's great-great-grandfather's mysterious disappearance in 1891.

New Years 2014-2015

Kim, Mac, Jacqueline, Victor and Macawley
New Years 2011-2012
We were really pleased -- the staff were courteous, went out of their way to please, and Captain Marco certaintly knew the area very well.
Their supply of sea-sickness pills was a massive result! The food was great and well-balanced and the cabins were kept very nicely. In fact, they all worked non-stop -- I think it rather put Rob off the idea of EVER buying a boat rather than chartering one! My kids really enjoyed the inflatable chariot and the fishing and also (slightly bizarrely), the Molton Brown toiletries!
It was a great charter experience and also, a great choice of boat/crew for a large family.
Cheers, AL
Our Perfect Family Vacation
"The perfect family vacation. A joy from the minute we boarded! Thank you for a wonderful vacation."
Friendly Hospitality
"Thank you for a great family vacation. Your friendly hospitality gave our family the time together that we rarely get to experience in our busy lives..."
May Charter
The trip was wonderful can't say enough about the boat and the, accommodations, amenities, food, cruising locations, and fabulous crew personalities made this a wonderful vacation!
Wonderful Kid Friendly Week
"Thank you so much for this wonderful week. You made it so easy for the kids to feel comfortable in this new environment - and us too! Everyday was so much fun and filled with such great adventures. We got such a great taste of what the BVI have to offer. Thank you, too, for the most amazing meals. Each one was better than the last. You guys are the best! We can't wait to come again."
Extra Ordinary Crew - BROKER REVIEW
"This is not your ordinary "great charter review" letter - this is an acknowledgement of the super heroes who pulled out all stops and gave 250% to make a charter happen. I with that [broker name] had enough volume to totally fill their calendars as a measure of our gratitude. Here's the scene ...[the crew] willingly took on the charter, which meant a 700-mile roundtrip sail to do a 4-night charter... now that is pretty extraordinary ...

These are the kinds of crews that we all want to worth with... the ones who are committed to being part of our team... doing unreasonable favors for the sake of one client having a great charter... if I hav a choice in which yachts to book, I'll go for the ones with the can-do attitude.

By the way, I have had a superlative reviews for this crew... they are those kind of crews that can deal with whatever/whoever you give them. I am most grateful to them and recommend them heartily!"
Nice Crew
"We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves from the word go. We couldn't have asked for a nicer crew and have felt very well looked after."
The Best Time
"I couldn't imagine a better time for my first sailing vacation... You made this such an incredible trip for all of us and we will definitely be back again very soon... Thank you for all the great food, beautiful boat, and for taking such good care of us".
Amazing \'Get Away\'
"Thank you for an amazing 'get away'. The sailing, views and good food would have been enough to call this trip a success but your attention to detail created an adventure for our family. We truly appreciate the interest you took in all four of our children and the comfort and relaxation provided for my husband & me".
