Oliver & Gilpin 42

Asking Price

NZD $199,000





If you are looking for a beautiful, strong, reliable classic launch to cruise along the NZ coast, then NAUTILUS is the one!

It's clear why Al Brown has owned her for the last 10 years and calls her his “beautiful bach on a bulldozer”. It is an incredible opportunity to see her on the market today.


Designed and built by Oliver&Gilpin in 1964, NAUTILUS had a full winter refit in 2018 by DK Marine from top to bottom. Full hull respray then a strip back on cabin tops and decks of all the old Altex gloss and no3 epoxy that was prone to flaking/peeling off. Handrails stripped and varnished, interior painted, all Chrome redone and a switch from the old traditional blue nonskid to something a little easier on the eye. A lot of love went into this job.


Perfectly powered with two ISUZU 122HP 6 cylinders turbocharged, NAUTILUS will take you everywhere at 8kts cruising speed. The hull shape goes beautifully through the sea and was strongly built.


In the main cabin is the helm station and control panel. It is a very spacious and extremely comfortable living space connected to the large semi-covered deck area.

Port aft is a well-appointed galley with stainless steel sink bench, large size fridge, a two-burner gas stove with oven, and a useful deep freezer under sole fitted. Stb is a very spacious head and two bunks.

The fwd cabin has two bunks as well and a lot of storage.


NAUTILUS has been well priced in the current market to be sold and to offer to her new owner unforgettable memories. Visible in Westhaven Marina. Survey available for serious purchasers.
