Midway during 2012 Kiwi Bus Builders for a customer based in the Hawkes Bay. The bus was designed to carry a large amount of passengers coming off the cruise ships. The chassis is a Volvo B7RLE which is powered by a 6 cylinder 290hp diesel engine with Adblu. The total length of the bus was at maximum legal for a bus with a steering tag axle of 13.5m. With this sized bus we were able to fit in 61 reclining Vogel Magnio seats with seat belts.

Another key feature to this bus is the large double plug entry door. This sort of door is normally reserved for urban buses but it was important to have a large door to increase ease of entry and exit.

This bus has a tare weight of 13130kg and has the ability to carry 61 seated adults plus driver as well as 25 adult standees. Total loadings (seated and standing) for other persons are Secondary: 86, Intermediate: 89 and Primary: 89
