Our fleet

We operate two Muir 8.2m keelboats, named Port Nic 1 and Port Nic 2. These yachts were purpose designed and built for Wellington Ocean Sports in 1992.

We also operate an 8.2m Naiad RIB named Caniwi Te Ruru (or just Caniwi). Caniwi has two 90hp Honda 4 stroke motors, and a full range of electronics including VHF radio, GPS, and wind speed and direction. When she is not the Royal Port Nicholson Yacht Club’s sailing programme, Caniwi is used to support our RYA Powerboat and Club Safety Boat courses.

All three boats are managed under Maritime New Zealand’s Maritime Operator Safety System (MOSS).
