Bay of Islands
This is an amazing boat on deck, with a lovely cockpit layout. The twin helm stations provide excellent visibility while the inbuilt helm seats allow the skipper to sit comfortably for long periods. Behind there is a large aft deck, perfect for lounging. A fold down swim platform opens to a tender garage that houses a 2.6m Lodestar inflatable. A great bimni setup to throws shade over the cockpit, complemented by a nice dodger with lots of clears to provide good visibility.
The current/original owners purchased Pointzero in the Mediterranean. Throughout their ownership they sailed through the Caribbean, Panama, Mexico and Tahiti & Tonga then to New Zealand. After Arriving , they fell in love with the place, and have cruised “Pointzero” locally since. In 2020, the owners prepared the boat for another ocean trip, with new rigging, extensive engine servicing and a new mainsail. Their plans were scuppered by covid and they continued to cruise in New Zealand.
