Belle Aimée and her crew of 13 are offering a variety of customized itineraries for the Christmas holidays in New Zealand. These include seven and 10-day, or longer, trips exploring the off shore islands of the country’s stunning North Island or the protected waterways and spectacular scenery of the South Island. Each charter itinerary will be customized by Belle Aimée’s charter agent, Jim Webster, and her professional crew to ensure that guests experience the trip of a lifetime.

Built by Amels in 2010, this vessel underwent an interior and A/V upgrade in 2013. Fully stabilized and with a cruising speed of 13 knots, she is comfortable, efficient and fully outfitted for maximum entertainment.
