Luxury Sailing with Pacific Jemm

New Zealand’s prestigious Imperium Luxury Collection has created an unapparelled sailing experience on Lake Whakatipu on board the private yacht Pacific Jemm. The sleek 80-foot Falcon-S vessel is designed for luxury sailing incorporating outstanding five-star hospitality.

“With the purchase of a new tender boat guests can now enjoy the best of Lake Whakatipu this summer exploring remote areas such as Bob’s Cove, Walter Peak and Pig & Pigeon Islands,” says Eichardt’s general manager Kylie Hogan. “We take excursions to the head of the lake to Glenorchy including visits to Greenstone and Halfway Bay stations.”

The vessels highly skilled crew  – many have experience working on the international super yacht circuit – offers the luxury of an exclusive sailing experience. The vessel has five-star accommodation for luxury overnight stays available either wharf side in Queenstown or on overnight cruises docked at Pig or Pigeon Island. Amenities include four upmarket suites, chef’s kitchen, luxury dining area and lounge.

“ We constantly get feedback on how ‘wowed’ our guests are to visit areas not commonly ventured into – it is a world-class New Zealand experience,” says Kylie.

Daytime sailing options include a Gourmet BBQ Cruise and a half or full day Activities Cruise or the vessel can be chartered for special occasion events such as wedding celebrations, anniversaries and birthday events.

The gourmet barbecue cruise offers a Trust the Chef style menu prepared by a private chef on board showcasing regional flavours, local wines, craft beers and premium champagne.

“The activities cruise options explore the lake’s far reaches before mooring up and our crew set up a range of activities from paddle boards and aqua pads to fishing for a day of exploration and adventure. The cruises are popular with friends, families and corporate groups keen for a luxury day on the water.”
