The 171-foot Amels Belle Aimée has just entered the charter market—with ambitious plans for some exotic itineraries through the end of 2014.

Belle Aimée is a 2010 build that underwent an interior and audiovisual upgrade this year. She is being marketed as ideal for scuba, adventure and education-focused family charters thanks to her onboard dive center and wet lab. She is a five-stateroom yacht that carries a crew of 13.

Her first charter region will be New Zealand, where she is available for seven- or 10-day itineraries during this winter’s holiday season. She will then be offered in New Zealand and Fiji through March 2014. Spring will find her in Vanuatu and New Caledonia; she’ll spend August in Vietnam and Cambodia; and she will round out the year in Malaysia, Thailand, Burma and Indonesia.

The lowest weekly base rate to charter Belle Aimée is $250,000. Learn more at, or contact charter broker Jim Webster via
