New Zealand

New Zealand has three primary regions for yacht charter: Auckland, the Bay of Islands and Marlborough Sound.

Auckland’s nickname is the “City of Sails.” A large percentage of residents own yachts and love to take part in regattas, day cruises and other sailing activities. The America’s Cup was held here in 2000 and 2003, when the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron captivated the world’s attention. For charter clients who love to sail, an Auckland itinerary is hard to beat.

Farther north on New Zealand’s North Island is the Bay of Islands, which comprises some 140 islands to explore. It is popular for sailing as well, and for big-game fishing, snorkeling and scuba diving with penguins, dolphins and whales. Beaches here are welcoming, as are the people who live in the local towns.

One must-visit village is Waitangi, where the historic Waitangi Treaty Grounds mark the place that saw the Maori natives and British forces signing a pact in 1840. Marlborough Sound, on New Zealand’s South Island, is best known for its world-class wineries. They produce, among other things, award-winning sauvignon blancs.

Charters here can include visits to the wineries along with waterfront hikes, exhilarating day sails and fantastic fresh seafood prepared by your charter yacht’s chef.
