We're very pleased to offer the much celebrated Beneteau 57 Sailing Vessel "Escape Artist" to complement our fleet!...

Beneteau 57's have been a classic charter yacht the world over for the last few years, and are well sought after by serious cruisers. Escape Artist is the best of her marque, being the last one built, and is much in demand.   The raised center cockpit makes handling such a substantial ship a pleasure, there's a great entertaining and lounging area aft to the quarterdeck which cries out for good company and good food. 

As you can see from the pictures, she is outfitted to a great standard; she features a commander's double stateroom aft, two substantial double cabins with ensuite forward, and a twin bunkroom (and a casual extra in the main cabin). The spacious grand saloon is supported by a fully equipped galley, and plenty of well thought-out storage.    

She's got the legs to range at will from the Cavallis to the Bay Of Islands, the Mokohinaus to Great Barrier, from the solitude of a pohutkawa-lined bay to the busy harbours of the City of Sails....Escape Artist offers a glorious platform to explore the entire Northland coast in the style that you deserve. 

Escape Artist is available for Bareboat Charter to suitably qualified and experienced clients, operating from Either Bay of Islands or from Auckland.

We still have some very desirable time-slots avaiable for the coming sailing season.... Contact us to enquire about this great vessel quickly and you could be at sea in her very soon!
