Giesens Wines New Year

Sat 11 Jan 2020, 9:00am–10:00pm

Sun 12 Jan 2020, 9:00am–3:00pm 



One of the longest running and largest keelboat regattas in the country. The Giesen New Year Regatta attracts boats from all parts of New Zealand and is sailed in five divisions across two days.

Preceded by a Friday night invitation race, the regatta offers everything from high performance 'round the cans' racing (Divisions 1-3) to longer 'cruising' type courses including a 'white sails' option (Divisions 4 and 5). With the great cruising offered in Queen Charlotte Sound, many boats include the regatta as part of a relaxed summer cruising break.

"Making everything seamless and hassle free that is an art"

After going through the selling process for our Beneteau Oceanis 40, I found that the service and guidance that was provided by Steve Raea in Auckland as brilliant!!.

Any questions I asked, he had the answer plus a possible suggestion to go with it. It did not matter to him even if it was on his days off or when overseas.

Steve has a sound relationship with marine services such as surveyors and alike. To this I would like to say thank you Steve for making the process seamless and hassle free. Steve is continuing to help us in our  search for our next vessel.  J

My wife and I would recommend anyone looking to sell or purchase a boat to use  Vining Marine.

Regards
Tony and Virginia.

Pip,

Thank you so much for all your help & assistance with our purchase of "Jayne", the many taxi rides, honest advice and professional approach to our new home were very much appreciated. You are fantastic to work with and made the whole experience enjoyable and relaxed.

Cheers, Jessica & Chris (Follows the purchase of a Roberts 44 Offshore Yacht - reference on file)

Hi Brent

All went well with the handover, apart from the wet weather. Steve & Sue are really nice people, so good to know that Blu Wytch has gone to a good home.

Thank you very much Brent for all your help and the professional way you handled everything in bringing the sale to a conclusion.

Look forward to a catch up sometime on your side of the hill.

Best regards,

Warren

Rob,

I cannot thank you enough for the efforts you made to secure our ideal yacht.

After 50 years of sailing in and owning a variety of vessels, I know what I want, and the brief I gave you was detailed and demanding, indeed another broker told me a while ago that “The boat you are looking for does not exist”.

When you produced our dream boat we were amazed, and the way you helped us through the entire purchase with patience, integrity, and good humour, went far beyond what was expected.

I will definitely use your services again, and recommend you highly.

I was wanting to give you some feedback in our recent and ongoing contact with Vining’s. Firstly to give us the quality time, with no notice as you did last Friday was remarkable.

Michelle and I had almost given up trying to find the right boat. We had a short list of which I think you showed us all of them. I had dismissed Hinewai 2 so to see it and put an offer on it was all down to you.

I have dealt with Greg in Seaview and his manner was much the same as yours, professional.

Rest assured that we will recommend your company to anyone who’s looking to buy or sell a boat in the future.

Kind regards

Rod & Michelle

Dale and Jan

Hi Brent,

Thank you for your communication. We are very excited to have it all done and dusted and looking forward to our holidays and time up there.

 We have been so privileged to have had Brent looking after us throughout. He has been so helpful and has made the process so much easier - especially when we are working from a distance. Brent and Vining Marine have certainly gone the extra mile, and we thank you all up there so much.

 

Warm regards

Dale and Jan.

Rolf & Jackie

Gavin Stevens and Brett Cammell, 

 We want to send you both our heartfelt thanks for the amazing support you gave us during our time in Waikawa and the Sounds.

You both went way beyond just doing your job which you also do with great integrity.  The extra care and time you extended to us will not be forgotten.

Thanks so much!

Mark, from when you brought Phil, the purchaser of Aqua Vitae over to Tarakohe for the first visit and until the final day they sailed, I can say you are a pleasure to deal with . I like your calm approach to all things. 

Phil got a great boat and the way you put things was open and honest , which I like . No BS is certainly the best way to  sell .

It was your hard work that got the boat sold .

I think you went above what most brokers I know would do and it was a pleasure to have you aboard to come from Tarakohe back to Nelson .

 So all up a big thank-you and you can be sure, if we buy again, we will be coming to you. I will also personally recommend you to some friends, one of my skipper may already have been in touch . 

Thankyou

All the best
