The Kwela yacht is 11 metres long and white with a white and brown mast.

Kwela left the Havelock Marina about on Saturday with its male skipper on board.

The last contact from the yacht was about 2.30am on Monday when the skipper indicated he was in difficulty in Fitzroy Bay.

Police have not confirmed whether the skipper was referring to Fitzroy Bay in Wellington or Marlborough Sounds.

Anyone who has seen Kwela since Saturday is asked to call police on 105 and quote event number P045096201.
