MV Kahu

So as  I was enjoying my hot lobster roll at Abbott's and watching the steady parade of pleasure craft passing by,  this super yacht started to make its way past.  It was clearly far larger than any of the other boats normally seen in these waters and dwarfed all the other boats.  It was so big, that I couldn't capture the entire yacht with my 85 mm lens which provided some nice views of the other craft.  One never has the right lens!!

At one time the MV Kahu, was a ship in the Royal Navy of New Zealand.  It was purchased and refitted into a family yacht by Peter White-Robinson, who very conveniently happens to own the New Zealand based Fitzroy Yachts.  He then took his family and some friends on a year and half long cruise around the world.  The yacht can now be chartered for adventure cruises.  She's 122 ft long and has two diesel engines.  You can find out more about her and book your very own adventure cruise here.
