Welcome aboard Cruczar, come sailing the beautiful Hauraki Gulf with us. I’m Warren Brown, owner of Cruczar (pronounced Cruiser). I’m a keen sailor and fisherman who takes great delight in showing off the many islands of the Hauraki Gulf right on Auckland’s doorstep. Cruczar was launched in December 2008 and is based in Auckland.
We will go where the wind takes us, usually exploring Rangitoto, Tiritiri Matangi , Kawau Island and of course Waiheke. With many bush walks, see New Zealand’s regenerative flora and fauna and swim on the many white sandy beaches. For the more adventurous, a trip to Great Barrier Island can be part of your trip where there is some great fishing and picturesque evenings beside the fire in Smokehouse Bay. And if you are lucky, you might even get the chance to see some whales and dolphins out at Great Barrier.
Cruczar is a great boat for up to two families to share. All berths are adult size and even when full there is plenty of room on this boat. This is an experience that you will remember for many years to come, a great thing to do with the family and a great education for future generations.
For the more experienced sailor Cruczar is available as a Bareboat Charter. It is available for hire to people with a reasonable amount of sailing experience. A resume of your sailing experience is required upon booking a charter.
Exploring the Hauraki Gulf
Auckland is one of the few cities where you can jump on a boat and reach an island within 30 minutes. The many islands in close proximity make it perfect for exploring by boat.
Add to your sailing experience by jumping off the boat and surfing the many beaches, visiting the beautiful wineries and eateries of Waiheke, whale watching, bird watching at Tiritiri Matangi, hiking up Rangitoto to take in 360-degree views of Auckland or doing a spot of fishing, the Hauraki Gulf has it all.
So, gather your family or friends and explore the Hauraki Gulf on our sailing boat Cruczar, there is so much to see and do!

The boat is very comfortable and roomy and is very good for 2 families or 4 couples to share.
The skippered charters are for people with little or no sailing experience who are keen to experience the beautiful Hauraki Gulf . You can try snorkelling, swimming and fishing as well as supervised steering of the boat. This is a memorable experience you will have for years to come.
The skipper/owner Warren, a keen fisherman and sailor has spent years cruising the gulf and knows the area well. I encourage everyone to come and share this magical experience with me.
