Gung Ho - The Boat
GungHo was built by Lidgard Yachts of New Zealand out of Kauri wood in 1992. She is a beautiful, 36-foot racing monohull.

With more than 30 years experience within the marine industries of New Zealand, Australia and internationally, Lidgard Yachts is a multi-generational boat building family that offers a complete professional custom yacht design service in most construction mediums.

GungHo was built to race and to win the prestigious international regatta the Kenwood Cup out of Waikiki. The boat was in fact victorious and was then sold. Thus began her life in Hawaii. GungHo was successfully campaigned all through the 1990’s and early 2000’s.

Keahi Ho purchased GungHo in 2008 with a plan to race the boat throughout the Hawaii racing circuit and cruise with his young family. He hoped to fulfill his lifelong dream of sailing to Tahiti with his family, which came into fruition with a successful voyage to Tahiti and back home to Maui in 2015.

Over the last decade Keahi has given GungHo many upgrades. He pulled the mast, replaced the rigging, built a new cockpit, added a sugar scoop and installed a new rudder. Prior to sailing to Tahiti, Keahi completely rewired and installed a custom-built solar powered refrigerator.

Since 2016, GungHo has been operating private sailing charters on Maui. Owner and captain Keahi Ho is honored to share GungHo and his passion for sailing with a larger community through these uplifting and intimate private day sails and sunset sails.

Keahi is a kind, professional and patient teacher. His boat is in beautiful, well kept condition. His course is hands on the entire time. It was such a pleasure to take his course and I plan to do another set of lessons as soon as I’m able. You will not be disappointed.
