Kiwi couple Don and Marilyn are very experienced seafarers having lived and worked on island farms in Auckland's Hauraki Gulf where all transport of people, farm supplies and livestock was by sea. They raised three sons in this unique environment and built their first yacht there, later enjoying family sailing holidays on New Zealand's east coast. The plan to build their own charter catamaran was interrupted by the opportunity to drive the camera boat for the live coverage TV of the 2000 and 2003 Louis Vuitton and America's Cup yacht racing, but eventually they completed their dream and the sailing catamaran, Cool Change is the result. Very innovative and built entirely by this couple to vigorous NZ Marine Survey standards, the gleaming blue green hulls of Cool Change stand out among her peers. Both Don and Marilyn are experienced skippers, they know New Zealand's cruising areas with the diverse marine life well and enjoy sharing their knowledge and 'special' places with others. Join them aboard Cool Change and share their Kiwi dream....Layback, Loosen up and Live !
