2012 ACTIVA 5800 Pilothouse
Boating should be fun and boats also should be designed for comfort! Building an ordinary boat is straightforward but making it extra-ordinary and more comfortable requires extra effort and draws from practical experience.
A lifetime of cruising the world, hosting and running luxury charters on boats like these combined with our background in furniture design and manufacture has shown that small living spaces need careful development to let the good times flow. Production driven boat-builders and naval architects are often technically focussed in their boats which is important, but sometimes overlook the parts of a boat that make it fun and leave a smile on the family's and guests faces. For owners or dealers to retro-fit the fun back into a boat can be very expensive and not feasible.
Adventure Bay Motor Yachts modifies the spatial design and builds in practical comfortable user friendly spaces from day one with a hand crafted custom boat quality feel. Then everyone has a good time!
Here are just a few examples:
Creating more social C or L shape seating areas that encourage easier conversation and good times. The outdoor dinettes are best under shelter from the elements with the views out to sea.
Improved master cabin layouts - midships where possible for quiet nights and east-west full walk around berths for better sleep and easier access all round.
Engine spaces which have easier access for improved maintenance.
Easier tender launching systems for effortless launching of larger fun tenders, e.g. hydraulic sinking swim platforms for drive-on and drive off tender simplicity and then use as a "private beach" for easy swimming for younger or older boaters.
Lots of energy and cost efficient and comfort features to make life aboard more enjoyable and less effort for all. As boats get bigger they can also get harder to run if thought hasn't been given to operating simplicity. To make your boating life better, we carefully select experienced yards who have decades of experience and have high standards of finish. To achieve this without the expensive one-off custom price tag, we now favour experienced Taiwanese builders, who are using the latest composite fibreglass technology. For 30 years their industry has produced tens of thousands of luxury vessels for the US live-aboard cruising market. Taiwan now sits in the top 5 in Superyacht construction total orders and top 4 in medium size pleasure motoryachts. US brands such as Nordhavn, Marlow, Krogen, Fleming, Ocean Alexander and Grand Banks have for decades been using Asian builders to supply their boats to very high standards. Adventure Bay manages the build closely using NZ boat-builders, Surveyors and Naval Architects to achieve very high traditional finish standards for you to enjoy.
