Broadsword and Koti spent last summer cruising
around the Bay of Islands.

They broke the trip into short day hops and visited many nice anchorages on the way.


Here are Broadsword and Koti anchored at Motuihe
prior to departing towards Whangarei. 


 Here is Artnautica LRC58 hull number two at Auckland On The Water Boatshow. Very positive comments from people who came by to have a look and from the press.

She has a slightly bigger engine than KOTI, a 90BETA, and the fuel economy is very similar.

The average speed from Napier to Auckland was 9.5 knots with a fuel burn of about 0.8 litres per nautical mile.

The flash sportfisher to starboard is another design of mine, the Dickey Boats Semifly 32.

Long Range Cruiser 58 launched!

On our way out to play in some left over waves 
from two days of breeze. 

A metre and a half of swell and a speed record 
catching a wave and surfing at 14 knots.

Great fun and total control!
