We love the Spirit of Adventure

In fact several of us got the opportunity to sail aboard The Spirit of New Zealand ship in our distant youth. We think it is one of the most amazing adventures any young person can have.

This unique sailing programme was set up in the 1960’s and over the years more than 75,000 young kiwis have been on board. There they learn to sail a ship, to be more self-reliant, more confident and they develop life-long friends.

They come back somehow taller and certainly braver. With the support of Hyundai New Zealand, the Spirit of Adventure is making a positive contribution to the next generation of Kiwis.

May Sailing

There’s nothing like spending the day out on the water, and what’s even better is the fact we were able to share the experience with a number of our Service Customers!

On Thursday the 5th of May, nearly 100 customers and their families were warmly welcomed to join us on the Spirit of New Zealand. Grandparents, grand children, aunties and uncles, in-laws and neighbors were all apart of the mix and we were stoked to be able to share the experience with those of all ages. While we sailed the Auckland Harbour, it wasn’t all about rest and relaxation. The Spirit Staff took us on tours of the ship, got customers to assist in putting up sails and even got a few kids to steer the ship. The weather and wind couldn’t have been better and the whole day was enjoyed by all. It was an experience we won’t forget!
