Rakoa is a fantastic playground on the water. She’s a 44-foot Pelin Empress, cruising at 13 to 16 knots.

Her home is Z Pier in the Westhaven Marina of Auckland.

Rakoa is fully Maritime Safety approved.

Rakoa is expertly managed by 2 passionate mariners dedicated to your safety and comfort. Murray, Marc are great fun and are fully qualified skippers.

They’ll be there to facilitate your day and make sure everyone has a great time.

Rakoa Charters have been showing clients a good time for over fifteen years, receiving her first guests in April of 1996.

As a team we’re keen on boating and love a good time on the water. Like most people we get a thrill from seeing our guests enjoy themselves, so drop us a line and come along to share in this remarkable experience.

Captain/Skipper Marc Taylor is the youngest of our team, Marc has been involved with Rakoa since an early age. His experience at sea is well beyond his years and he’s well known to our repeat clients for his friendly and considerate manner.

Marc is a superb host but he’s always ready to have fun with our guests.
