The Maple Leaf is 12.8 m long  x 4.8 meters wide. It sleeps up to 8 people. While accommodating for 8 we recommend a maximum 6 adults. A couple is great, 2 couples is perfect, 3 couples is fine.... any more and it's not worth it unless you are a family group with a couple of small children and you don't mind mucking in. Sleeping Bags for family groups will give you simple options for sleeping of a larger group. We provide all linen blankets, duvets, pillows, sheets. and 2 towels.  We recommend you bring more towels if you are in a larger family group.

Frequently Asked Questions:

• Where do I park my car?

  • Your car can be left for the duration at the owner's property free of charge. Space is limited, please no more than 2 vehicles.

• Can I bring my pet?

  • Pets, firearms and fireworks are not allowed on Maple Leaf.

• I have not handled a boat before - will I need a licence?

  • No, you do not need a licence to drive the Maple Leaf. We suggest you have marine experience of some form, and you must be at least 25 years of age. The key question you need to answer is, "Do I, as skipper, have the experience to keep my family/party safe on a houseboat?" If no, then maybe this experience is not for you.

• Is there electricity on the boat?

  • The Maple Leaf is fitted with 12 volt D.C supply from a solar panel which suppplies lighting. As well, a low watt inverter supplies 240 volt current for laptops and mobile phones. 130 Watt maximum.

• Is there any music or TV on board?

  • There are no TV's or DVD players on board. The Maple Leaf is equipped with an AM/FM radio. The radio has an Aux input.

• Is there cell phone coverage?

  • It is patchy. In the centre of the harbour is Ok but in the bays with the big cliffs coverage may be limited. Phones may not work everywhere, but will work somewhere. Texting is the most reliable form of communication on the harbour.

• What if we need supplies such as food, drink or fish bait?

  • These can all be purchased from the Boyd Gallery store in Whangaroa. This convenience store has most basic supplies such as bread, milk, newspapers etc.

• How far can I take the boat?

  • The Maple Leaf is surveyed as a bare boat charter, within the limits of Whangaroa Harbour. There are spots which are shallow which are marked on the map that should be avoided. You will be given instructions on navigation in our safety briefing of the boat.
