Let’s face it – a boat shed is the stuff of dreams, and this one at Kissing Point on the Whangarei Harbour ticks all the boxes.

And not only is the boat shed for sale, but you can also buy the 48ft, solid kauri “Gentleman’s Cruiser” currently moored in it.

Although, when Homed spoke to owners Michael B White and Sarah E Charles on Christmas Eve, they were out on the water, in full Christmas mode. “We’re quaffing champagne and dining on angel hair pasta, ham hock and pancetta, and we have marauders pulled up alongside,” said White.
