Boat Hire

New Zealand Boat Rentals & Sailing Charters

Explore New Zealand's stunning waters in a skippered or bareboat yacht or launch charter.

Enjoy the serenity of the sea, and the freedom to anchor when and where you wish.

Choose from a range of NZ boat charter companies who will hire a yacht or launch for you to sail in around New Zealand. Or experience the luxury of a fully catered and skippered vessel guided by a professional crew.

Skippered boat charters can be rented overnight, or for multiple days giving you more time to see more of New Zealand’s beautiful coastline.

Bareboat charter boat companies offer boating tuition, and vessels are available for hire year round.

Many charter boats are available for special occasions such as weddings and anniversaries, or for corporate and group charters.
