The "Good" List!

Of the many retailers, manufacturers and suppliers we have dealt with
during the construction of our yacht, some have gone above and beyond their obligations,
and have made life a lot easier for us.
We feel that the businesses below deserve special recognition!
(In alphabetical order, with web contacts listed where possible)

121 Marine

These guys have gone the extra mile for plumbing parts and lots of "odd" bits

Auckland Engineering Supplies

Can't speak highly enough of their service for plumbing parts, tools and fasteners. If you are ever cruising to New Zealand, and require ANY parts or service, Steve can source and organise almost anything!

Blair Boats
North Auckland

What can we say! Without them we wouldn't have our yacht, and their patience with our "peculiar" requirements has been exemplary.

Blue Sea Systems

This Company provides after sales support second to none. They stand behind their innovative products to a truly exceptional degree.

Eric Dane

This man is a genius with wood and has crafted both our saloon table and trailboards. This sort of contribution has added more than a little "something" to our project.

Mike DeHaan

Another crafty contributor to our yacht. Mike has supplied a small, very customised basin for our head.

Electrical Marine Systems

These guys are doing all of our AC and DC electrics. Extremely capable, experienced, neat and fast.

Fasco Fastener

A truly splendiferous array of silicon bronze fasteners, and they are more than willing to do specials and difficult jobs.

A Foster and Co.

These folks have almost everything that anyone could need for a boat, and have the expertise to match their inventory!

Gulf Harbour Riggers
North Auckland

Helpful, competent, capable and obliging!

MS Engineering
North Auckland

Extremely competent for even the most testing engineering problems!

North Harbour Foundry
North Auckland

Completed the majority of our castings, and besides doing a really good job of some "problematic" pieces, managed to educate us in the finer points of pattern making along the way!

Sailors Solutions

These folks are responsible for "Sensibulb" LED lighting units. We have distributed these throughout our cabin, and they are superb: lots of light and low current. To make the whole deal sweeter the after-sales service is absolutely fantastic. Great shop to deal with!

Simon Willis Sails
Kerikeri, New Zealand

Those cruisers who have had sails made by Simon, Judy and Co will KNOW how good they are. These folks have made all of our sails, and the quality and accuracy of their work is amazing.

Skybolt Fasteners

Have developed some really nifty quarter-turn fasteners that can work for removable panels inside our boat.
