Sailing yacht Ohana begins sea trials


The 50m flybridge sloop Ohana has undergone her first sea trial in New Zealand.

Fitzroy Yachts' latest build was launched in New Plymouth on 28 October and was photographed when the yard took her out for a spin on 31 October.

Built for a European owner, Ohana is the eighth Dubois design to be built at the yard. She features a master cabin aft, plus accommodation for 10 guests in five cabins. The main deck layout includes a generous saloon and dining space.

Ohana will soon travel from New Plymouth to Auckland to have her mast stepped and to undergo further trials before her delivery in December.
