RnR Charters ® Ltd ~ The Vessel RnR

RnR is surveyed for operation from East Cape to North Cape out to 12nm.
RnR is a 10.2m Genesis, built in 1990 to survey to take up to 10 passengers, plus crew, however for comfort and safety, we keep the numbers to a max of 6 for most trips and 4 for scuba diving.

RnR is great for Xmas functions and conferences and scenic cruises too.
We have even done scattering of ashes and for events such as this we take up to 10.

Birdwatching, Rock Fishing, Island excursions and ferry trips to Gt Barrier (or anywhere) are all part of a days work for RnR.
When you book RnR, you can be confident, you are booking a boat with a knowledgeable experienced skipper.

Wayne and Stef's  experience includes many years on the waters of the Hauraki Gulf on both private and commercial vessels, cruising, fishing, diving, sailing and exploring.

Wayne first went offshore in the '70's cruising the Great Barrier Reef, also spending time crewing aboard prawn trawlers on Australia's east coast.


Experience includes a position as master and engineer aboard a 60' motor sailing catamaran, from new-build to commissioning which included many hours in the outer Hauraki Gulf and extended coastal cruises and sailing from New Zealand to the waters of New Caledonia and Vanuatu areas game fishing.



During the  '80's & 90's Wayne and Stef owned and operated their own mechanical repair business and as members of the Panmure Yacht & Boating club (in Auckland NZ), they competed successfully in many yacht races, representing both the club and New Zealand locally and internationally.


Their enjoyment and  years of involvement with boating, fishing and sailing recreationally meant it was a natural move to the next level and after undergoing the necessary training and professional up-skilling, in 1997 Wayne and Stef formed a company bought their boat and began operating from Mangawhai Heads.


RnR specialises in taking cruising charters to the Mokohinau Islands, Great Barrier Island and the outer Hauraki Gulf.
