Looking for a unique experience to impress your group or someone special? 

Introducing Faith, the grand lady of Fiordland’s Lake Te Anau. She’s an historic wooden motor yacht (Sir Winston Churchill has even sailed her) who now glides amongst towering mountains, guided by a crew who care.

Faith can carry 22 guests for charter bookings, though she’s often asked to set sail with just two people who want her all to themselves.

Ideal for tour groups, celebrations, weddings, photo shoots, Christmas functions – we’ve even staged an unforgettable marriage proposal at Hidden Lakes. Ask us about the many refreshment options; Faith is fully licensed.

For a trip to treasure within Fiordland National Park, charter a boat with real history, personality, and grace.

“You could not have been more thoughtful or imaginative in making the three day charter an epic trip.  I’m not sure if bagpipes can be described as ‘icing on a cake’ but your playing was an unexpected surprise and much more enjoyable than previous (mainly military) encounters with the pipes.  You were both such good fun and looked after our rather unwieldy party superbly.  We had lovely meals and very comfortable accommodation.  You chose a super route with scope to get a proper feel for Fiordland and to appreciate Faith’s capabilities.  As seasoned classic boat enthusiasts we could not fail to enjoy her configuration and 1930s originality.” – Ralls Family 2023
