We have taken Ika Moana out of charter for the 2017 winter to use her for some offshore cruising of our own. She'll be back in charter for the New Zealand summer, starting November 2017 and will be better than ever before. Upgrades include a new mainsail, water-maker, lots of solar panels, integrated radar, charts and AIS on a touch screen at the helm, anchor windlass up/down controlled at the helm, cockpit drinks fridge and much, much more. She's currently at Category 1 for safety, so plenty of good stuff on board.
We're planning on leaving for Tonga on 6 May (weather permitting) and then on to Fiji. Updates will be posted through to the facebook page. We may be a little slow in replying to booking requests over May and June in particular, but we will get to it when we find 3G, 4G or wifi. I've attached a pic of us sailing down to Man-o-War at Waiheke at Easter to test all the systems before departure date. Happy times!
