Introducing our new blog feature, Humans of Hidden Harbour. We take a look at who’s in and around the marina and learn their stories. Our first feature is on Glenn Ashby, Skipper of NZ America’s Cup team and multi time Catamaran World Champion.


You may have noticed this exotic little beauty in our marina over summer. This Venetian Watertaxi (or Motoscafi to be exact) was enjoying a berth at Hidden Harbour Marina and exploring our beautiful surrounds.

Glenn Ashby imported the Motoscafi from Venice himself.  He brings her to Hidden Harbour Marina every year so he can experience a more chilled out time on the water. Glenn’s usual mode of transport on the water is anything but!

Glenn is the skipper for the New Zealand Amercia’s Cup team and a multihull world champion. With an impressive record, he’s won 10 Australian A Class Championships and 15 world championships across three multihull categories. Check out Glenn and his team in full flight on that amazing carbon fibre aerofoiled boat!

Glenn chose Hidden Harbour Marina for its easy access to the Bay and to ensure he keeps his little beauty safe.

It may be next summer before you see Glenn and his Venetian Water taxi, but stay tuned for our next Humans of Hidden Harbour blog post…
