Obelix: Boat sweet home

Pedigree

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 glad to be roaming the wide oceans again, and keen to explore the world as much possible…

After celebrating Christmas in Langkawi, we are now heading to Thailand. Check out where we are.
