Why choose a yacht charter?

Think of a yacht as a finely designed private island that moves to a new, beautiful location everyday so there’s always more to explore. There’s an infinity pool like no other and staff (crew) whose only aim is to make your day special.

Whether you want to be at the heart of the action, in the back of beyond or somewhere in between, there’s a captain who knows all the best places to go, even the secret ones only locals know, and how to get you there. There’s also an exceptionally talented and versatile chef who will always bring delight whatever you want to eat, from snacks and smoothies to full-scale banquets.

Children of all ages love the watertoys and there are always deck crew on hand to help you get the best out of them. From aquaparks with slides to jetskis and tows, eFoils, flyboards and underwater scooters to paddleboards, wakeboards and waterskis, there are thrills and chills to suit every taste, right on your doorstep.

With seven-star service, air conditioning, gyms, spas, cinema rooms, Wi-Fi that lets you work or stream as you wish and active stabilisers that stop any rolling, a yacht charter is the best holiday you’ve never had. Don’t you wish you could do something very special?

Some post-charter feedback

‘My clients appreciated all the attention that went into planning some really special experiences for them, such as the live band on board for 1920s night while anchored in a beautiful and seemingly remote place. The experience exceeded their expectations and they are hoping to organise another two-week charter next summer.’

‘We had a fantastic time. This boat had everything at a top level – food, people, activities, services… It was the best couple of weeks of vacation we have ever had. Having a masseuse, hairdresser, photographer and trainer really brought it to the next level.’

‘The crew went above and beyond... Trip of a lifetime!'
