Thinking about buying a new boat?

We have a diverse range of skills in our team who have been assisting clients with this for more than 20 years and we are here to help. Windcraft manages the largest portfolio of European production brands across Australia and NZ, but if we don't have what you need then we will help you find it.


The perfect yacht is fast, safe & beautiful.

A new yacht is also an investment in a new on-water lifestyle. It’s all about the memories you’ll create cruising beautiful bays with family and friends or rounding buoys with your racing crew. It’s about enjoying a few sundowners with sunburnt cheeks and an infectious smile on your face.

We are here to make sure your dream lifestyle comes true, and to do that you need a quality yacht, a first class commissioning process and a professional service support team who have the passion and experience to keep your yacht ready for anything.


  • “We wanted to drop a short note to you, thanking all who contributed to the delivery of Breathe last week.

    When we went looking for boats we had a number of requirements that we were clear about and many other areas where we were less certain, so were looking for assistance in understanding the options and which would best suit our needs. From our first dealings with Mary we felt that we would be assisted in buying a boat that was specified to meet our needs, rather than what the sales people wanted to sell.

    We have been greatly appreciative of the fact that this culture is evident throughout the Windcraft organisation, including sales, administration, commissioning and service. That culture has contributed to us being very happy with Breathe, we are looking forward to many pleasurable years sailing her.”

    Gordon and Trudi Butler – Hanse 418 “Breathe”
  • “I chose the 455 as I liked a couple of features over the competitors, and I also thought (and hoped) that it would sail better.  As I now know, the 455 sails really well, remarkably well balanced and high upwind and pretty slippery reaching.  In a recent SSANZ two handed race in Auckland we won our division on corrected time but the overall performance on the water impressed us on board.  Tuatahi was fast all day and certainly surprised a few competitors.  The self tacking jib makes sailing easy and boat very maneuverable but in under 10 knots the 455 benefits from an overlapping headsail.

    Overall very happy and pleasantly surprised with overall performance..”

    Aaron Young – Hanse 455 “Tutahi”
  • “We love our new 418. The finish quality, and the attention to detail in the design is very high for a production yacht.

    It is a very easy boat to manage and sailing performance is great without comprising on comfort and style.

    The big hull windows provide great views outside when down below and the large hatches allow for plenty of light and air to flow into the boat.

    It is a great family boat.”

    Harley Brighouse – Hanse 418 “Independence”
  • “I was fairly new to sailing and wanted to own my own boat. I looked at many different sailing boats but after speaking to Mary at Team Windcraft I knew the best choice for short-handed sailing for my 10 year old son and I was a Hanse with its self-tacking jib.
    I have owned a Hanse 415 for 1 year now and never looked back. I can easily sail the boat alone or with my son confidently and safely.
    Team Windcraft have been there to give advice and support to me every step of the way from ordering the boat and selecting the best equipment options for my needs, through to learning how to sail the boat.”

    Peter Melleuish – Hanse 415


First impressions count and even though our RYCK 280 is still being commissioned it's already attracting attention. Thanks to Dan Jones from Dans Boat Life who stopped-in to check-out the progress. See you on the water soon!

As we head into into a declared La Niña event this summer it’s re-assuring to note the sun is always shining on a Hanse, Dehler, Moody or Privilège during a twilight race. It’s a great way to unwind and kick start the weekend.

No excuses for dropping out of the groove now! We’re keen to see Niksen a Dehler 30 od back out working up to its big offshore potential when sailing fully resumes in NZ.

What do you do if you have a brand new Hanse 460, a breeze just aft of the beam and a clear run to the horizon? You unfurl the reacher, sit back and enjoy the sublime ride. Some of Europe's top boating magazines will publish their full tests of the 460 next month and we'll post the ...verdicts as soon as they're out.

A very solid performance by Wings, a Dehler 46 in the Bird Island Race, coming 16th on line and 13th in the Fully Crewed PHS Division. Wings covered the 83 nautical miles in a strong westerly gusting to 40 knots in 9 hours, 18 minutes and 26 seconds. Another solid tune-up in the lead-up to the ...Rolex Sydney Hobart.
