Obelix: Boat sweet home


I’m a 40 ft fibreglass monohull sailing yacht designed by New Zealand naval architect Erwin Haag in the late 70′ and built by Orams Marine Whangarei.
First launched around 1985, I got my name after the famous French comics character for my legendary volume and sturdiness.
I’ve had two owners until, after lying on the hard at Whangarei Cruising Club for nearly two years, Thomas & Salomé decided to buy me on April fool’s day 2019. Under their care, I have enjoyed a 3-month refit of my hull and the fitting of a new cockpit awning in 2019, a brand new engine in 2021, and a flash new deck and new rigging in 2022.
I am so happy to be roaming the Pacific Ocean again, and keen to explore the world even further…

Currently enjoying the laid back lifestyle of TI in the Torres Strait, waiting to cross to Indonesia. Check out where we are.
