Auck Int Boat Show: Introducing The Dutchess

Introducing The Dutchess

The words "Pleasure craft" are beginning to take on new meaning in New Zealand with the arrival of "Dutchess", a new 76ft motor Yacht built in Holland for an Auckland based businessman.

This is not just a fishing craft with 4 large cabins onboard capable of sleeping 8 to 10 people, a large galley, teak decks outside and plush carpet throughout the interior. Each Cabin has an ensuite and there is even a wine cellar, Jacuzzi on the flybridge and full sized "Bridge" loaded with Navigational equipment!

Constructed in Holland by Mulder shipyards, this is the first of its kind to arrive in New Zealand and the range hasn't even been seen yet in Australia.

The owner is also the importer for these vessels in the South pacific and is keen to show the vessel to the media as well as entering her in the Auckland International Boat Show.

Permanently based at Orakei Marina.
