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

Sophisticated and undeniably stylish, the first Hanse 460 delivered to New Zealand is nearly ready to be handed over to her new owners. The combination of a cool dark grey hull, natural teak coachroof and wide anti-slip side decks is sure to attract more than a few dockside admirers.

Launched at RQYS just over a month ago Ohana, the first Hanse 460 in Australia/NZ is tuning up in the club’s weekly WAGS races. With any brand new design it’s about tweak and re-tweaking the sails and rig settings, but there’s no doubt the 460 has the potential to switch from pure cruising to... performance mode. GL to Ohana and her crew for the next outing on Moreton Bay.
