Wasting Light is arguably one of Auckland’s most luxurious charter boats. Operating out of Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour, Wasting Light is a 70ft Maritimo luxury motor yacht built in Coomera on the Gold Coast of Australia and brought to New Zealand to do charter trips around the city’s stunning Hauraki Gulf. Many luxury features were added to ensure it meets the expectations of the most discerning guest.

The latest Bose integrated audio system with a stored selection of music to suit your mood can be played throughout every area of the boat. Or play your own CD, DVD or iPod through your individual Bose audio system in the Saloon, Stateroom, Forward Guest Cabin or up in the Flybridge. Sky Digital TV can be viewed on any of our 5 TV's in the Saloon, Stateroom, Forward Guest cabin, Flybridge and even out back in the Cockpit – we have all the movie and sport channels along with Sky’s music and audio channels.
