In focus: Travelling New Zealand’s charter grounds in style with classic luxury yacht Sea Breeze III
The South Pacific luxury yacht charter grounds offer one endless blue horizon for groups looking for an adventure away from the world’s more well-known cruising spots, and classic motor yacht SEA BREEZE III adds to the enchantment in New Zealand and beyond.
Gorgeous traditional interiors
Luxury yacht SEA BREEZE III was built in 1979 and refitted as recently as 2019 to ensure that her atmospheric interiors are maintained to the highest standards. Modern entertainment blends seamlessly into the surroundings, so that guests have plenty of options at their fingertips while heading from North Island to South Island or as far afield as the Chatham Islands.
The classic interior styling is filled with authentic details: Warm wooden panelling throughout is complemented by seamlessly integrated mirrors, wall sconces and sofas patterned in retro fabrics. This step back in time will charm visitors and guests alike, and the understated elegance will be remembered fondly as the setting for a family gathering, corporate event charter or getaway with friends.
The beautiful main salon will be a hub for gatherings day or night: The forward bar has a variety of soft drinks and spirits to suite the occasion, and plush sofas and armchairs are laid out for tranquil afternoons reading in the sunshine, films at sundown or energetic conversations about the next amazing destination. On the upper deck guests can watch as the Captain navigates through the sounds of the Fiordland National Park and watch the cascading waterfalls through the surrounding windows.
The accommodation provides for up to 6 guests over 3 beautifully appointed en-suite cabins: 1 Master suite and 2 twin cabins. All the guest accommodation comes with air conditioning, TV entertainment and a bathroom finished with matching marble surfaces.
Ready for outdoor life
The outdoor areas are designed for spending as much time outdoors as possible, from the main deck aft alfresco dining area to the foredeck Jacuzzi and sunbeds. The best views on board can be found on the sundeck, where guests can rest in the shade and marvel at the changing scenery and wildlife that New Zealand has to offer.
Combined with the interior amenities, luxury yacht SEA BREEZE III can host up to 60 guests for quayside events.
The selection of water toys is designed with all ages and fitness levels in mind, and the 12-person inflatable unicorn bar is a light-hearted addition that will be enjoyed by everyone. The rest of the collection includes:
- 2 x kayaks
- 2 x paddleboards
- 1 x wakeboard
- 1 x doughnut
- water skis
- snorkelling equipment, and
- fishing gear
Fishing in New Zealand is a spectacular treat and enthusiasts will find kingfish, snapper, trout and much more. Whales and dolphins can be spotted in the Hauraki Gulf around Auckland, and the Abel Tasman National Park has sea turtles passing through its islands.
Stewart Island is a beautiful destination for exploring by kayaks and paddleboard and the shoreline will dazzle with the numerous bays and coves lined with golden sand beaches. Hikers will also be delighted with the tracks spanning the island, and it’s possible to arrange a drop-off and pick-up point with your experienced crew.
End the day by dining alfresco by candlelight on the beach, or return on board for the convenience of a warm lounge and downy bed after stargazing on a crisp, clear evening.
