Situated in Russell is the Bay of Islands Boathouse, a captivating project perfectly positioned on the edge of Okiato with a picturesque view of the bay.



Using Forté’s Millboard Enhanced Grain Smoked Oak Plank, the main deck area provides the perfect viewing platform that spans the length of the main residence, wrapping around one end to create easy access to the front of the property. The cool, light-toned grey colour of the Smoked Oak planks softens the dark exterior cladding, which blends into the surrounding natural elements.


This tranquil setting offers a relaxing escape and the functionality of modern living with large sliders connecting the deck to the main living space, providing the perfect indoor-outdoor flow.


The minimalist aesthetic of the exterior is carried through inside with an open plan kitchen and living space. The unique blend of earthy brown tones in the Artiste Rustic Da Vinci flooring by Forté adds warmth to the light kitchen cabinetry and soft furnishings, while the brushed texture in the planks adds a touch of character to the space.
