Sail Barbary

We invite you to make yourself at home on either of our lovingly restored two classic white sailing yachts.

Our skipper and crew will make your sailing trip with Sail Barbary, Lake Taupo's quietest cruise boats, enjoyable and memorable. Soak up the sun or roll up your sleeves. You can take the wheel, help hoist the sails or just sit back and enjoy the view.

We’re equipped for all conditions. If the wind dies down, Barbary’s quiet, eco-friendly electric engine kicks in. Or, if you prefer a real sailing adventure, then come aboard when the wind is up and enjoy sailing without salty sea spray and noisy outboard motors.

You are even welcome to B.Y.O. (Bring Your Own) prepared food and beverages. This is an experience not to be missed!
