Imagine the freedom to follow your heart and voyage to the most incredible destinations around the globe. And, while you travel, imagine luxurious accommodation, impeccable service, exhilarating activities and exquisite dining – all in complete privacy. This is the unmatched experience that charter a yacht brings.
Why to charter a yacht?
1 Rise and shine
Wake up in a new beautiful anchorage and head straight outside into the sunshine, guests can choose between an early morning swim or yoga on the aft deck. When you are ready, breakfast will be served on the sun deck. Fresh fruit, homemade pastries, juice, or even the traditional fry up – whatever takes your fancy, the chef can prepare.
2 Splash time
The crew will always have the watersports equipment ready and raring to go. Dive into the crystal blue sea with a Seabob, test your abilities on water-skis, race around on a Waverunner or simply float in an aqua lounge… the choice is yours. The crew will be waiting to assist and give guidance wherever needed.
3 Lunch is served
Your favourite foods will have been relayed to the chef, so he/she can prepare you a magnificent feast, served by the highly experienced crew. Whether you want a light lunch of fresh fish caught earlier that day, a bbq on the sundeck or a taste of exquisite cuisine from the other side of the world, the chef will be able to prepare it for you.
4 And relax
After a fun-packed morning, it’s time to relax and take in some sun on the sundeck, Jacuzzi or enjoy some quiet time with a good book. Once you’ve recharged your batteries head ashore for shopping, taking in the local sights or just to have a stroll.
Enjoy cocktails on the sundeck whilst watching the sun go down. Then choose between dinner on board or jumping on the tender to go ashore and try out a local restaurant. Alternatively, you could even ask the chef and crew to prepare you a private dinner on the beach under the stars… Anything is possible!
6 After dark
Take in a show, club or casino ashore. The crew will take care of any reservations, so you can just simply relax and enjoy the atmosphere. Later… once everyone is safely back on board, the yacht will quietly cruise to your next destination while you drift off into a much-needed sleep on the luxurious king size bed.
The joy of chartering is that you can set the pace
and itinerary of your cruise to your own tastes and wishes..
Discover the Balearics on a yacht
Many people come to the Balearics to visit Ibiza and Formentera, and revel in the contrast between the glitzy super clubs of Ibiza town by night, and the dazzling white sands and sapphire waters on the coast of Formentera by day.
However, there is so much more to discover… The North-West coast of Ibiza delights with many quiet calas and some beautiful coastline, especially the mythical Es Vedrà.
A cruise round Mallorca takes in some breathtaking cliffs along the Serra de Tramuntana, bays carved from the mountains to take your breath away. The awe-inspiring gothic cathedral in Palma and immense port make it a favorite for the yachting crowd, though a visit to the national park in Cabrera by yacht is a really special excursion.
Menorca´s quiet beauty and incredible history are a draw, with some beautiful calas and the historic Port of Mahon is one of the largest natural harbours of the world..
The Joy of Yachting
That’s the joy of yachting – choose your destinations, pick the best anchorages, find the crowds (or avoid the crowds) – move if you want to – it´s all tailored to you. All while the crew will work to provide you with memorable experiences – from the best sunset cocktail creations to your favorite cuisine, or keeping everyone entertained with watersports… you set the pace, the tone and choose your destination!
A luxury yacht charter is one of the most exquisite experiences you can have, spending time with your loved ones, in a luxurious floating villa, enjoying five star service and wonderful food cooked by your own personal chef.
Of course, you can charter a yacht all over the world – favourite spots include the Mediterranean (the French and Italian Rivieras, the Amalfi Coast, Croatia, Greece, Turkey), the Caribbean, the Bahamas, South East Asia, the South Pacific, Australia among others…
