This is the R Tucker Thompson, a gaff rigged schooner built in New Zealand in 1985 in the exact method of the original schooners.
She does regular day trips with passengers as well as sail training for groups around the Bay of Islands in New Zealand.
This photograph was taken at Motuarohia (Roberton) Island in the Bay of Islands.
