MV D'Urville .

Welcome to the MV D'Urville a classic 70ft motor launch available for day/evening charter in Auckland, New Zealand.

D'Urville is a classic, one of the last of her kind in Auckland and, in an age dominated by plastics, alloys and the need for speed, she epitomises the comfort, style and ambience of a byegone era. She can accomodate up to thirty guests in comfort  for celebrations or corporate entertaining but is equally suited to a family day out or an intimate dinner party.

All of the entertaining area is on one level. The deck saloon has large windows for excellent all around visibility and opens out onto the sheltered aft deck which is perfect for al fresco dining and relaxing.

MV D'Urville provides harbour cruises and trips out to the beautiful Huraki Gulf islands where guests are able to make use of the on-board kayaks, swim, go ashore in the dinghy or just relax and take in the ambient surroundings.

The owner Richard Stevens will be your skipper while his wife, Charlotte, will cater for all your culinary needs. Menus can be chosen from our sample selection or tailored to suit your needs.

Kick off your shoes, relax and enjoy !!
