Nautilus Heritage Sailing

Get out on the Waitemata harbour with our newest heritage vessel Nautilus. With a maximum capacity of 8 it is an intimate and fascinating experience to cruise on this vintage launch. Nautilus has had a colourful life, travelling the world, since first being launched as family vessel used for picnics and racing in 1913.
