Frolic Classic Electric Boat Hire to Explore Historic Kerikeri River!! Bay of Islands, NZ
Electric boats have been around since the 1920s in Europe. Our Classic English river launch was hand built by British craftsmen and has always had electric propulsion. She began her life on the upper reaches of England's River Thames. She then moved to spend most of her life on a lake in Switzerland, where she has received a full rebuild with the latest technology. She now has a full canopy of special double glass solar panels, providing both power and shade. She has also been fitted with a highly efficient and lightweight Lynch motor. The interior has been refurbished with new cushions and the rear cabin is fully glazed to keep you warm in the winter. Just arrived to start her new life in New Zealand, she is perfectly at home on the historic and beautiful Kerikeri river. Combine your boat hire with a visit to the Stone Store, Kemp House, Rewa's Village and Kororipo Pa to understand the importance of Kerikeri river in New Zealand's history. Both the first Maori waka and the first European missionaries each arrived in Kerikeri up the river, a stunning new vista opening up around each bend in the winding river. They both found it such a perfect spot that they decided to make their settlements here. You should experience arriving by boat too!
