Luxury Tailored Cruises:.........

Come & join us aboard our luxurious yacht, Aparima.

Let us take you away for an unforgettable journey of discovery through the Queen Charlotte Sound or beyond.

Explore this largely untouched region of New Zealand that not many visitors to Marlborough get to see, in comfort and style whilst enjoying the luxury of having your own personal executive chef & crew on board to cater for your every whim!

From corporate events to intimate weddings/honeymoons, or if you just want to get away and leave your stresses behind for a while......

We can help you put together a luxury package that will suit everyone - from the young to the elderly.
For whose who want to relax and unwind to those who'd like to venture outside their comfort zone.
We have the perfect vessel, chef & crew.... not to mention the magnificent backdrop of the Marlborough Sounds to make it a huge success!

Aparima has safe walk-around decks and several entertaining areas, inside & out to enjoy your cruise.
The many windows in the saloon make sure you don't miss out on anything in the event the weather is not great.

Enjoy the stunning 360degrees views from the sheltered position of the fly bridge, or simply relax on the aft balcony or sundeck.
The sleeping quarters are spacious & comfortable with a three-cabin, two bathroom layout that features an enormous private stateroom with own ensuite and entry to the aft deck.

Please go to our website for more information & contact your hosts, Grant & Vera to discuss your tailored cruise options and voyage through the beautiful Marlborough Sounds on Aparima!
