*Just completed extensive two year refit in New Zealand. Refit and ready for charter!
Sea Breeze III, previously named Ulysses - the very first of the Ulysses series of superyachts - is a stunning classic motor yacht based in Auckland New Zealand and available for charter throughout the Pacific. Originally built in 1976 at Millkraft in Australia and fully refit in 2009 and 2021, she's a very special and characterful choice for your next yacht charter vacation.
SEA BREEZE III combines the timeless elegance of a classic yacht with effortless and energetic modern styling. Among the many enhancements during the 2021 extensive refit was a full "mid century" modern interior fitout. The interior styling of the vessel honours the yacht's past, keeping much of the original mahogany and classical textures, balanced by splashes of colour and modern soft furnishings to offer a stylish contrast of old and new. The original furniture has been repurposed & covered in luxurious and beautiful fabrics fromAtelier, including Pierre Frey, Mariaflora & Manuel Canovas. Silk wallpaper by Chivasso and textured wall coverings bring harmony to the intricately panelled interior. Sumptuous cushions scattered throughout have been crafted from Japanese vintage silk obis. Eclectic treasures & antiques nestled throughout Sea Breeze tell a story of travel & a bygone era with a modern twist.
SEA BREEZE III is able to sleep 6 guests in 3 spacious, well appointed and stylish guest suites. With capacity for up to 80 guests for day trips SEA BREEZE III is a spacious and large volume vessel with plenty of deck area for lounging dining or entertaining.
When in Auckland she's based in the centre of Auckland at the viaduct marina, conveniently located for an easy embarkation before departing to explore the endless surrounds. The yacht and crew specialise in exploring the Hauraki Gulf Aucklands surrounding islands such as Waiheke and Great Barrier and cruising the Bay of Islands during the New Zealand summer months and the islands of Fiji from May to October.
"I had the privilege of spending 10 days staying on aboard Sea Breeze and enjoying the hospitality of Charlotte & Skipper Simon. It was a wonderful experience, not only for ambience of a classic super yacht, but also the many escapes on board for either solitude or group get togethers. I especially enjoyed the dining room and exceptional local NZ seafood and wines served by Charlotte.
The Hauraki Gulf is a unique, and for anybody seeking a luxurious escape in a safe and environmentally beautiful part of the world, a charter on Seabreeze should be a part of your bucket list. I highly recommend." - Charter guest
"The Captain & crew on Sea Breeze were absolutely outstanding. They always went the extra mile to create the best holiday of adventure and fun. The food was exceptional and always served beautifully. What we loved most was the calming feel of the boat - with her sense of history and beautiful style made it it so special. The whole experience exceeded our expectations. We would (and hopefully will) do it again in a heartbeat. Thank you all!!" - Charter Guest
