Regal Flyer

Introducing Regal Flyer

Regal Flyer is a privately owned charter vessel operating from the Taupo Boat Harbour. The vessel is skippered, managed and maintained by a very professional team with many years experience within the charter industry. We pride ourselves on customer satisfaction. Our aim is simple: to provide you and your guests a safe and stress free fun day out on the water… an experience to remember at an affordable price.

Regal Flyer was custom built in New Zealand by Regal Boats, specifically for the 2000 Americas Cup and designed for entertaining guests on the water. The vessel had many years charter success operating from Auckland Viaduct and more recently around the Pacific Islands. Under new ownership, Regal Flyer is now in Lake Taupo for you and your guests to share a fantastic time on the water.
