Meet the Crew of Vigilant Classic Yacht Charter Bay Of Islands

Nik – The Skipper

New Zealand born and bred; Nik was lucky enough to spend his childhood exploring the Northland coastline. His favourite methods of marine exploration include sailing, motorboats, scuba diving, free diving and surfing. Being a boat builder, his father inspired in Nik a deep love for classic yachts. After travelling abroad for a number of years, Nik decided it was time to come back home and he bought his dream boat, the gorgeous Vigilant and set up Vigilant Classic Yacht Charter Bay Of Islands.

Sailing qualifications collected along the way are:

RYA/MCA Yacht Masters offshore
Maritime New Zealand Local launch operator
STCW 95
MNZ Radio Operator
Coastal medic

Nat – The Deckhand

Straight from the East Coast of Canada, Nathalie flew to New Zealand and fell in love with its marine life and coastlines. After spending a few years travelling around, she was lucky enough to meet Nik, she fell in love with his boat and the rest is history. Nat has since learned how to sail, scuba dive, surf and much more. As your deckhand, she will be on board to make sure your day sailing on the beautiful Vigilant is just as perfect as it should be!

Sailing is Nik and Nat’s passion, and they feel very privileged to be lucky enough to be doing it in one of the most beautiful places in the world, New Zealand’s Bay of Islands. They’re looking forward to meeting you, showing you everything the Bay of Islands has to offer, and making sure your Yacht Charter in Bay Of Islands is one fabulous experience to be remembered.
