We want you to relax while you explore the Abel Tasman National Park. Our boats always limit their numbers, so you're never cramped. Under Level 2, hand sanitiser will be available on board, we'll have your details for contact tracing, and due to limiting numbers you'll be able to social distance on board - sit back and enjoy your Abel Tasman experience.

Bespoke Luxury Charter For You

Our luxury charter provides a taste of all the Abel Tasman has to offer from the comfort of our premium launch the Kennedy 19.

This bespoke charter has the bonus of additional crew and your very own chef to ensure a day of pure comfort while exploring the beautiful beaches and estuaries of the Abel Tasman National Park. Kayaking, hiking and snorkelling in the marine reserve are all options along with a truly guided experience of the local flora and fauna.

The perfect cruise for your honeymoon or small group.

We off full catering with options for buffet style, fine dining or finger food available. Talk to us about your menu plan or let us organise local delicacies with the boat's private chef.

The beautifully-upholstered saloon sofa seat and U-shaped leather-bound galley seating are set around highly polished burr-walnut tables. The outer decks are teak with an expansive boarding platform. The interior boasts two en suite bathrooms and a separate main bathroom.

The electronics include satellite TV, a Bluetooth stereo system, underwater LED blue lights and LED lighting throughout.

The galley is fully stocked with a built-in fridge/freezer, a separate bar fridge, electric BBQ and convection oven to ensure your chef is able to prepare a delicious menu suited to your taste.

Rod describes the Kennedy as 60ft of elegance with muscle. “She creates the opportunity for a National Park experience with the feel of a high-quality hotel.”

With 3 steering stations and 15-inch Furuno touch screens in the navigation suite, the boat is a dream to operate. Add the 3.2 m Aquapro inflatable tender with 20hp, 4 stroke Honda with electric trim and tilt, and there is no corner of the Abel Tasman National Park that we cannot explore.

This is a 6 hour excursion that includes 3 crew for your client's comfort. She is a Kennedy 19m or 60ft luxury launch with 3 en-suite cabins and a high-quality interior. She is suitable for small groups from 2 to 6 passengers with larger groups possible also.
