About Phantom Sailing
A day out on Phantom gives you a chance to get away from the crowds. This is adventure, relaxation and scenic beauty all in one with the personal atmosphere created by your hosts, Rick and Robin. Swim, snorkel and hike the island then enjoy a great home cooked lunch amongst the beauty of the islands on this great owner- operator boat. We sail out of Russell and Paihia in the Bay of Islands and are in our 23rd year of loving our job.

Overview
Cruising is the best way to see the sub-tropical Bay of Islands. Do this in style aboard the Phantom, a live-aboard private yacht. Your hosts are an enthusiastic sailing family who have traveled the world in their yacht. Sit back and relax on board the Phantom while enjoying views of the islands and bay, with possible dolphin sightings and the chance to snorkel.

Through complete luck we had the boat to ourselves and had an amazing day out. Rick and Robin provided excellent conversation and the lunch was incredible. It’s obvious that they put a lot of love into the experience they provide and it made for an unforgettable day.

Rick and Robin are awesome, some of the nicest people you will ever meet and their sailing experience is second to non. The know the Bay very well and their history of it and knowledge of where to head for the best experience is amazing. I would highly recommend sailing with them anytime.

Knowledgeable owners/ crew. Beautiful boat obviously loved and well cared for. Very relaxed sail around beautiful scenery. Great lunch. Highly recommend. Even got a chance to skipper ( for a short while).

Back after lockdowns and Phantom continues to be a treat. Great hosts, amazing home cooked food and what a backgound! An absolutely must do in the BoI. We were a group of six, us oldies, grown up kids and their kids, the grandies are still talking about it.

Our family of 4 had a super fun day sailing aboard the Phantom. The Bay of Islands is the perfect spot to do something like this and the Phantom Yacht, helmed by Rick, Robin and Jackson maximised relatively lower winds to give us a great sailing experience. It was a memorable day including a stop at a beautiful island and homemade lunch. Money well spent!
