Bay of Islands, NZ

Soak in “New Zealand Pure”. Pure Fun, Pure Beauty, Pure Adventure.

One of the most alluring yacht charter destinations, New Zealand is a powerhouse of attractions. The world’s leader of crazy adrenalin-pumping extreme sports – and birthplace of the bungee jump – the other land Down Under is a phenomenal adventure seeker’s paradise. Unlike its bigger and more famous neighbor, New Zealand is anything but flat. With her mountainous curves, striking fjords, glaciers, thermal pools, bubbling volcanoes, startling glaciers, tropical forests and sparkling waterfalls, Kiwi-land offers a fantastic variety of experiences, especially given her diminutive size. Add to that an awe-inspiring Maori islander heritage, awesome wine and food and thoroughly amusing accent, and you’ve got yourself quite the impressive sailing hub.

Fancy a gander? Then cast off on a memorable New Zealand yacht charter and discover why a sailing trip on the other side of the planet, is about as good as life on a yacht can get.

One Country, Two Worlds

Comprising two very distinct islands, this place offers a variety of itinerary options for New Zealand luxury yacht charter guests. With their individual landscapes, harbor towns, cities, activities and attractions, both the North and South islands can be regarded as two unique yacht charter destinations.

But don’t worry…that adorable accent stays the same!

Generally speaking, the North Island of New Zealand is the premier yachting destinations of the two, with the South taking front-honors for land exploration instead, except for jaunts into the spectacular and world-renowned Sounds. The North is volcanic in origin, whilst the South boasts glacial beginnings, so although the landscapes are magical in both, they are also startlingly different for our New Zealand luxury yacht charter guests.

North-Island

The North is the more populated half of NZ and fantastic for cultural experiences in the very cosmopolitan cities, mountain hikes and glorious beach-hopping aboard a superyacht charter in New Zealand. The deep blue waters in the North are much warmer so swimming and snorkeling in summer are ideal. The breathtaking Bay of Islands, on the north-eastern tip, is the primary yacht charter destination in the country and an archipelago comprising over 140 sublimely sub-tropical islands. On shore, you’ll experience that welcoming Maori culture for which this country is so renowned, and discover old and immensely charming fishing ports. Big game fishing, water-based sports and the jaw-dropping beaches of this bay act as magnets for New Zealand yacht charter guests, offering an all-encompassing Kiwi experience. Together with the onshore attractions of Auckland and the superb Hauraki Gulf, a New Zealand luxury yacht charter of the North Island promises to be a totally unforgettable voyage.

South-Island

The Southern Alps grant New Zealand luxury yacht charter guests a stupendous scenery on this bottom half of New Zealand, which is regarded as the ideal nature-lover - and adrenalin junkies’ - paradise. The Fiordland National Park boasts the stupendous and imposing Milford and Routeburn Sounds, which alone are worth a stop aboard a superyacht charter in New Zealand if you have time. Plus, the wine-growing region of Marlborough acts as a delightful incentive for South Island explorations.

Can’t decide where to go? Let us help you devise a perfect New Zealand yacht charter itinerary and make your sailing vacation, down south, an adventure you’ll remember for years to come.
