Available for Charter with Camper & Nicholsons, the original yachting company.

Aqua Blu is new to the charter market however her sister ships, Aqua Amazon & Aqua Mekong, have been hugely successful and Aqua Blu is an exciting new addition to this fleet, created by a recognized global leader in luxury small-ship cruises.

Aqua Blu began life as a British Naval Explorer - HMS Beagle. 60m Aqua Blu took her original name from the legendary ship that carried Charles Darwin on his global expeditions and she was later the private yacht of a European aristocratic family.

Originally built by Brooke Marine in 1968 to a design by Cor D. Rover, Aqua Blu is a compelling maritime statement of luxury and comfort, combining all the qualities of a high-performance yacht.

Aqua Blu has travelled throughout the world from the Indian Ocean to the West Indies, and Scotland to South Africa. In 2002, Aqua Blu was refitted and transformed into a four-deck luxury yacht.

Having attained the highest international classifications (RINA, SOLAS, ISM) in safety, Aqua Blu is additionally equipped with Quantum Zero Speed stabilizers for optimal comfort at rest or while sailing.  She might have been given a new purpose, but Aqua Blu retains all her ocean-going capabilities such as an impressive range of 7,000 nm, making her the perfect travel companion at sea.

Guests can expect to embrace a distinguished sense of history and seafaring evolution when they set foot on this one-of-a-kind cruise ship.  Across the four-deck layout, there are 15 suites in which up to 30 guests can be accommodated, all tastefully decorated with a brass-and-ivory interior theme. Aqua Blu has generously sized and inviting indoor and outdoor social spaces, including a sun deck.

Modern luxury and ultimate comfort were the design drivers for renowned Dutch yacht designer Cor D. Rover, and these private sanctuaries lend a luxurious sense of home.

Aqua Blu’s main salon is perfect for small groups to relax and socialise, or for use as one large open space for entertaining when linked up with the dining room. The library and television room are situated on the upper deck, complete with the sky lounge bar which opens up onto a sheltered veranda through automatic glass doors.

Few things are more enjoyable in the tropics than cooling off in Aqua Blu’s Jacuzzi, which is flanked by plush daybeds for sunbathing. The sun deck offers spectacular 360-degree views wherever you sail in the picturesque Indonesian region. Equipped with a barbecue, outdoor seating with umbrellas and wrap-around lounge sofas, this is the perfect location for sunrise yoga, an evening grill party or night time stargazing.

Aqua Blu’s toys and tenders include scuba diving equipment (for use by certified divers), kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, fishing gear and a selection of RIBs.

A crew of 25 and a highly experienced Captain attend to guests aboard Aqua Blu.
