The wonders of New Zealand’s North and South Islands are ready for exploration this winter aboard the 171-foot (52m) Amels motor yacht, the recently upgraded 'Belle Aimée,' say the charter agents.

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

Belle Aimée has been specified for dive, adventure and educationally-focused family charters, and is equipped with a state-of-the-art dive center, wet lab and entertainment system. This five-stateroom yacht is also exquisitely appointed with fine furnishings and exotic accents that complement her equally exotic charter schedule, and her impressive selection of dive gear and water toys will delight water sports enthusiasts of every age.

The superyacht and her crew of 13 are offering a variety of customized itineraries for the Christmas holidays in New Zealand, which include 7, 10-day or longer exploring the off shore islands of the country’s stunning North Island or the protected waterways and spectacular scenery of the South Island that draw adventure seekers from around the world. Each charter itinerary will be customized closely with Belle Aimée’s charter agent Jim Webster and her professional crew to ensure that guests experience a charter of a lifetime, complete with discovery, education and adventure.

Belle Aimée will be available for New Zealand or Fiji itineraries through March 2014, after which she will round out the year with further programs and is available for charter at $250,000 per week plus expenses. For more information, visit or contact Jim Webster at +1 954-525-5101;
