Faith is a 19.7 metre (64.6 foot), wooden motor-sailer, built in 1935 in Scotland. She served in WW2, hosted Sir Winston Churchill, has sailed all over the world and now calls Lake Te Anau and Fiordland National Park her home. There’s no other boat like her in New Zealand and no better way to experience the tranquility of this famous World Heritage Area.

16 guests (maximum) relax on board, or up to 22 for private charters. You are treated to personalised commentary – no pre-recorded loudspeakers here! – with heartfelt hospitality, complimentary canapés and chilled refreshments.

Over two hundred 5-star TripAdvisor reviews make us blush with words like magical, superb, and amazing. Time and again our guests refer their friends and family to come sailing with us. Locals book Faith for celebrations and wedding photographs. Guests marvel at the embracing silence of South Fiord and the unspoilt beauty of the Hidden Lakes.

A little about Adam (owner):  From a background as a wheelwright, restoring and building old machinery, and a commercial pilot to satisfy his love for classic, vintage, and warbird aircraft, Adam also arrived in Te Anau for a short contract – 7 years ago!! After years of flying vintage aircraft and floatplanes around Fiordland, he came to help George, (who now enjoys his retirement in Christchurch) and get Faith ready for commercial cruises. Having achieved his skippers ticket in addition to the host of other licenses he holds, he’s just as happy at the helm as he is in the cockpit.

Our Crew: Our crew have a passion for Fiordland and love working in the National Park. This brings a special connection for each crew member with their surroundings and knowledge they share with our passengers. Their love for offering a unique experience is reflected by our repeat guests and customer feedback. 

Come sail with us and enjoy a journey like no other.
