Orakei Marine has outdone itself this year with a huge range of head-turning vessels. Covering the gamut of styles – from fast Zodiac RIBs to Prestige Sports Yachts and beautiful Jeanneau sailing vessels, the team at Orakei is looking forward to helping match showgoers to their ideal boat.
Orakei Marine doesn't do things by halves… Jason Snashall talks us through some of Orakei's show highlights including Zodiac; who it's now the New Zealand distributor for.

The all new Sun Odyssey 410 from Jeanneau offers the latest advances in technology with a sleek timeless design. Her hull, with a hard chine, is powerful and stable and her self-aligning rudders increase responsiveness on the helm. With recessed sidedecks, this model is particularly secure especially whilst underway – Ideal for young families! Downstairs, the interior space is maximised, with more layout options available than ever – Choose from three cabins or two with a large workshop or sail storage!
Adopting the Sport-Fly concept, the Prestige 630S benefits from both a sliding glass sunroof and a beautifully integrated flybridge. Both the sunroof and large wrap-around windows provide panoramic views and bathe the refined interior in natural light, a signature attribute of Prestige Yachts. Powered by 2 x Volvo IPS 950 engines she has an impressive cruising speed of 24 knots and joystick control makes her easy to manoeuvre.
The new NC37 is like an apartment with a terrace to the water. Her one-level galley and saloon connect seamlessly to the L-shaped cockpit and bathing platform for effortless entertaining. She offers two generous cabins with shared bathroom and the option of an additional alcove cabin under the saloon, which is also a very functional space for storage.
With a bow thruster for easy manoeuvring and Raymarine electronics for uncomplicated navigation, the NC37 offers relaxed stress-free boating.
Previously, cruising with outboard engines on boats of over 10 meters seemed impossible, until now. The Merry Fisher 1095 is a true innovation, guaranteeing exceptional performance with economic propulsion.
The interior allows bright, natural light to diffuse through the opening sunroofs, wide sliding glass doors, and windows in the hull. There are numerous storage compartments distributed around the fully functional galley and a well-appointed head with separate shower, which accommodates the three spacious cabins.
