Cruisers Kay and Lane Finley spent a year cruising around the coast of New Zealand in their 44’ yacht “Mai Tai”. This DVD is the result of a whole year's worth of footage and an interesting insight for anyone considering cruising this diverse coastline.

They begin in Auckland and circumnavigate NZ anti-clockwise taking in the Hauraki Gulf, Whangarei, Bay of Islands, Northland, Taranaki, Fjordland, Stewart Island, Akaroa, Cook Strait, Marlborough, Golden Bay and Tasman Bay.

The Finley’s have tried to give a comprehensive overview of cruising the more remote parts of NZ, including some relevant historical points of interest, aerial shots, interviews with locals, information on local activities plus cruising and piloting tips. What this isn’t is a cruising guide, however the DVD leaves you with a good impression of the planning required for a cruise of this nature, modifications you may wish to make to your boat, safety concerns and the incredible scenery.
