6 Popular Luxury Charter Yacht Features
With literally hundreds of luxury yachts available for charter trying to decide which yacht would best suit your needs can be a little overwhelming. Here are a list of some of the most popular features and facilities that will help enhance your charter experience. From state-of-the-art cinemas to pampering spa treatments luxury charter yachts have much to offer and we can help you choose the one that is right for you.
The beach club, which began life as a platform on the transom (rear) of the yacht at water level, was originally intended to make launching tenders and toys easy and had a retractable ladder for swimming. But no longer is it just a place to splash about. These spaces now offer a range of experiences. Some owners have set them up as water level open air gyms while others are home to a full spa including a spa pool, steam room, shower, yoga space and treatment room. More generally they are set-up as an "al-fresco" salon, complete with bar, ideal for relaxing during the day and enjoying a refreshing cocktail while soaking up the rays on the sun beds or relaxing in the shade on the comfortable sofas. These versatile waterside venues are an entertainment essential on a luxury yacht.
When you first think about a luxury yacht charter watching a movie is probably not high on your list of things to do, however after a busy day exploring ashore or checking out the local dive sites a relaxing evening watching your favourite movie or catching the one you missed can sometimes be just the ticket. And if you have the family with you it's also a great way to entertain the kids while the adults enjoy sunset cocktails. And there are choices of cinemas – some have dedicated indoor cinemas complete with luxurious seating and popcorn machines while others offer an outdoor, under the stars, cinematic experience with state-of-the-art screens. The choice is yours and we can help you find the luxury yacht that has the best system and film library to suit you and your guests and/or family.
Nothing is more relaxing than lying in a hot tub and many luxury charter yachts feature these. Most are outdoor with some offering impressive panoramic ocean views. These are often surrounded by sunpads and deck chairs in addition to well-stocked bars. The area becomes the perfect place to relax and soak up some sunshine or gaze at the stars. It is very easy to while away a few hours enjoying soothing luxury. Some yachts also offer jacuzzis as part of a spa treatment area with massage tables and a sauna nearby. As luxury superyachts are getting bigger so too are the size and sophistication of their jacuzzis.
One of the best aspects of the luxury charter yacht experience is the on-water fun! Guests young, old and young at heart can have a blast shooting the breeze, diving to depths or frolicking in the shallows. And there is an ever growing list of cool gear and gadgets to amp up the fun. From simple SUPS and jetskis to more exciting Underwater scooters and the AquaSkipper which converts the power generated by your up-and-down motion to let you fly high above the water's surface, there is a water toy for everyone. And if you'd like to try out something new then a luxury yacht charter is the perfect time. They are all easier than you think and with knowledgeable crew to assist you, a yacht charter is a great time to learn some new skills.
Many yachts have dedicated gyms so if you are a regular user of exercise equipment, such as treadmills, ellipticals, stationary bikes, or stair climbers, you should be able to continue your existing fitness program on board. Some also have a personal trainer, who can create the perfect program to fit your needs and your time aboard. Each charter yacht has different types of equipment, so work with us to select the luxury yacht that best suits your requirements. Your Captain will endeavour to source specific equipment requests in advance of your charter. Consider where the gym is located on the yacht, too. Many are placed in glass-enclosed or waterfront areas so you can enjoy spectacular views while "pumping iron." Some have sliding doors for fresh air while others are located in or near the beach club so you can finish your routine with a cooling swim.
One of the ultimate luxuries must be indulging in personalised therapeutic treatments with services and facilities designed to pamper. Many yachts have crew members trained in various massage techniques given in either a dedicated room or on a portable massage table. Saunas and steam showers are ideal for soothing tired muscles and cleansing the pores. Some master cabins even offer private ones in their suites. Yet other yachts have crew members who specialise in Aromatherapy or can provide yoga sessions. And some even have beauty salons able to give you the perfect set of nails or the latest in hair styles. Let us know what wellness and beauty treatments you would like to be pampered with while on charter and we can advise on suitable yachts.
