Private, Small Group Yacht Expeditions in NZ

The MV Strannik, a New Zealand owned and operated luxury cruising and expedition vessel, offers small groups the opportunity to enjoy personalised world-class cruises. Currently exploring and showcasing New Zealand waters after expeditions around the Pacific and other oceans, her experienced and knowledgeable crew will share its hidden treasures with you.

We promote expeditions and cruises primarily focused on natural and cultural history, with additional options for hiking, photography, diving ( by arrangement) snorkelling, canoeing, or simply exploring.

MV Strannik, the Russian for 'wanderer' or 'pilgrim', can accommodate up to twelve passengers plus crew in comfort, but will generally sail with just eight passengers, accommodated in four two berth cabins with en-suite facilities, cared for by the crew of up to five. Our chef makes sure that no guest goes hungry.

MV Strannik was designed by the late George Buehler specifically as a small group expedition and research vessel to operate in any region or weather conditions, and is able to spend extended periods at sea. Built in 2018 by Sea Horse Marine to stringent RINA standards, she is fully certified and complies with all international SOLAS requirements.

The planned expeditions shown are for individual or group bookings, or the MV Strannik can be chartered for exclusive use to follow your own expedition plan.

MV Strannik offers the perfect solution to get to sea and see New Zealand differently, for families, groups, research organisations or institutions.
