A classic 60ft Salthouse motor yacht, she is one of the premier high-end luxury charters, operating from Picton.

Aparima is ideal for hosting a corporate or family orientated day, or intimate weekend luxury getaway.

Guests will experience the many stunning locations throughout the Queen Charlotte Sound, many places only accessible  by boat.

 You will enjoy the culinary delights prepared by your own executive chef on board.

We’ll whisk you away to a world where bird song, the breeze and the gently lapping waves against the boat will become your favourite soundtrack.

Aparima | Experience The Sounds

Aparima has a traditional classic layout, a  safe walk-around, several decks, which means plenty of  entertaining areas, inside-and-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 360degree views from the sheltered position of the flybridge, or simply relax on the sundeck.

Those of you seeking solitude can step from the aft balcony onto a sanctuary below deck.

The sleeping quarters are spacious, with a three-cabin, two bathroom layout that features an enormous stateroom with private ensuite and entry to the aft deck.  The second  guest-room shares the  bathroom facilities with the remaining cabin, which has 3 single berths.
