After another winter in Wellington Topaz II is looking really sharp with a re-fitted galley, new seats in the flybridge, new vinyl on the saloon dash/storage area, a bit more painting, engine maintenance and a general polish. She's all ready for summer now.

From July 2019 through to early September 2019 Topaz II will not be available for bookings. We are bringing her to Wellington and taking her out of the water for her bi-annual maintenance. She will be back in her berth by early September all fresh and clean and with a new oven.

We recently had a special family weekend on Topaz and one our party made a fabulous short video of it. Follow this link to see it:

What a wonderful summer we had this year. And Topaz II was out and about in the Queen Charlotte Sound almost every weekend. The new hard-top proved it's worth and the expanded space made socialising on the flybridge so much better.

Once again, we received a lot of compliments and had many happy clients. Below is just one of the references we received.

Hi Geordie and Kim

We received this short reference from another happy charterer. Thanks Will. We're so glad you enjoyed yourselves.

Last year we had a record number of charters. The following is a reference sent in by one of those. They were so please with their trip they have already booked in for another charter in the new year.

We recently chartered the Topaz II for an extended weekend as a bareboat charter in the sounds and found the launch to be just fantastic.

Bookings are open for summer and many dates are still available. Though please note that over Christmas and New Year there is a minimum charter length of 3 days.

Recently we moved Topaz II down to a new permanent berth in the Picton Marina and we couldn't have asked for a better spot. She now resides in the first slot on Pier 4. This is just below the coat-hanger bridge as the pictures show.

Topaz II was recently chartered by two families with small children for a long weekend in Marlborough Sounds. It sounds as though they had a pretty good time and have sent us the following testimonial:

Keeping the kids entertainedKeeping the kids entertainedWe have just installed a TV/DVD player in the saloon. You can only watch TV when there is a good signal but you can play DVD's anytime. This means you can sleep-in and let the kids watch a DVD or settle the kids before bed-time.
