At 14-metre long and seven-metre wide Aparima is one of the world’s best-designed charter catamarans, accommodating up to eight guests in four luxurious cabins furnished with natural timber. The onboard chef creates custom menus for every voyage, designed specifically to guests’ tastes using fresh local ingredients. Meals can be served in Aparima’s indoor lounge or outdoor dining area, while the sun deck’s trampolines, mattresses, and bean bags provide a sumptuous spot to enjoy a cocktail, relax with a book, or spot dolphins playing in the boat’s wake.

Featuring ample stowage space, Aparima comes fully-equipped with all the toys, including paddleboards, diving gear, fishing gear, wake skates, and inflatable biscuits. The vessel also features a rigid tender, as well as a seven-metre Fijian long boat, ensuring guests can reach those far out diving and fishing spots in maximum comfort.
