The Reasons Why You Too Should Charter a Luxury Yacht in 2020
Take it from our clients, many of them repeat guests, yacht charter vacations are the ideal way to make the most of every moment, whether that’s with family or friends. Drawing on their testimonials, Luxury Charter Group has compiled a few inspiring reasons to book your next charter yacht and enjoy the diversity of experiences only a luxury yacht charter can deliver.
Attend Events such as Formula 1 Monaco, Cannes Film Festival or the America’s Cup in Auckland
“We wanted to escape the crowds on the streets and chose to charter our own private superyacht. It was like a floating luxury hotel, berthed in Port Hercules. We had the best view during the races, even from the jacuzzi! In between all the action, we cruised the coastline and dropped anchor in the Lérins Islands while our onboard Chef spoiled us with amazing cuisine. After the Grand Prix, we enjoyed some sightseeing in Monaco, the Casino, Oceanographic Museum and Botanic Gardens, which were fantastic! We’re planning to do the same for the Singapore Grand Prix in September.”
Enjoy a Family Escape
“Our son was heading off to College and our other children had commitments during the year that would make it impossible to travel. So, we decided to charter a yacht and see all the sights of the Greek Islands that we’d been planning to do for many years. We took our niece and nephew as well, for company for the kids and it was simply the best. When we weren’t exploring the various islands, we were just relaxing and talking, soaking up the ambiance of the beautiful motor yacht we were on. The Chef kept up with the appetites of growing teens and it was delicious! The kids only got out of the water to eat. At night we watched movies on the screen on deck. It was nice to be so close as a family. They will remember this experience for the rest of their lives.”
Participate in a Special Interest Activity: Diving, Watersports, Nature, Cultural ...
“I had always dreamed of travelling to Tahiti and diving with sharks and rays, but I didn’t know how to make it happen. Luxury Charter Group knew the Captain and crew of all the luxury yachts in the region who had local knowledge about the best dive spots. We went with a group of friends and spent the whole-time diving, hiking, meeting local communities and really experiencing the culture. There was a spa day in there as well, which was amazing. We have booked to go again in October.”
Tick Off A Bucket List Experience
“Our family are big fans of documentaries and The Galapagos Islands was the one place we all wanted to visit. The team at Luxury Charter Group have all been to the Galapagos. They recommended the luxury charter yacht, STELLA MARIS whose Captain has 30 years’ experience in this area. We had the best time onboard. There was even a hot tub! We got close to all the birds, penguins and iguanas by kayaking around the rock platforms, we hiked and learnt about the unique ecosystem there, thanks to the Naturalists on the crew. It was the best family holiday ever!”
Re-connect with Groups of Friends
“The deck of our incredible charter catamaran was the perfect place to spend time together with friends and our extended family as the sun set, to share stories and reminisce about special times together. We had friends who charter yachts all over the world, so we contacted Luxury Charter Group and left the rest up to the broker. We enjoyed a week on a sailing catamaran in the Caribbean and enjoyed the lack of distractions on board. It was great to unwind and recharge our batteries. We might have to make it an annual getaway!”
Celebrate a Special Occasion such as an Anniversary, Birthday or Graduation
“My husband and I wanted to do something very special for our anniversary. We thought of throwing a big family party, but the logistics of getting everybody to our hometown in November, organising hotels, activities and entertaining everybody put us off. My brother in law had chartered a yacht in the Caribbean and told us it was the best vacation ever because there was something for everybody.The Crew looked after everything and we just relaxed and enjoyed our time together with no stress."
“It was a big birthday so we contacted Luxury Charter Group and were expertly guided to a fantastic yacht and a wonderful itinerary in the Bahamas. We visited every island, every landmark we’d always wanted to. It was like a beach house on water except every day was different. Those who wanted to, dived, tried the jetskis and explored. The kids loved the water slide. The rest of us ate, drank and relaxed. It was so beautiful to have time together in one place, no driving, no schedules to keep. Our party was the best – we didn’t have to lift a finger. Having all of our kids and grandkids there made it truly special.”
Escape City Life and Disconnect from Social Media and the Pressures of Work and the World
“Where else but on a luxury yacht, miles offshore, can you experience true peace and quiet? Our family enjoyed a week on a wonderful charter yacht in the Greek Islands, with fantastic crew, exploring the islands, visiting small villages along the coastline. We were spoilt with magnificent food and had time to just relax and get close to our kids again after a busy year. The best part was (besides the food), we could connect if we wanted to for work and our friends back home, but mostly drifted away and pretended we were the only people on earth.”
Indulge in Gourmet Experiences for Foodies
“The main priority for our charter was to experience the authentic flavours and traditions of the Mediterranean. It was brilliant to have an accomplished Chef onboard who knew the culinary traditions of each area we visited. We were able to accompany him to the markets and pick out the produce, then watch him prepare the ingredients, cook and present dishes. Corsica was an eye-opener in terms of the variety of cuisine, such as Civet de Sanglier, wild boar stew, and the best Bouillarbasse we’ve ever tasted. Luxury Charter Group also arranged for us to attend a special dinner with a Michelin-starred Chef in Sardinia.”
Invest in Your Fitness Keeping Active During Your Yacht Charter
“We’re an active family all year round, so sitting by the pool for a week is not our idea of a great vacation. Our charter had to be full of activities, both on-water and on-land, and something for the whole family. Luxury Charter Group found us the perfect charter yacht in the Caribbean, with a young, energetic crew, a fantastic gym onboard and even a masseuse on the crew. They organised an itinerary for us that was equal parts watersports and exploring onshore. There were Seabobs, standup paddles boards, jetskis and a massive slide from the top deck. We had electric bikes and mountain bikes so the whole family could enjoy the experience. At night, we watched our go-pro and drone footage on the big screen on deck.”
Discover History Cruising the Mediterranean
“Way before ‘Game of Thrones’, I’ve been fascinated by Croatia and the islands of Dalmatia and a luxury yacht charter was the only way to go. There are hundreds of islands, and each one has its own character. The coast is dotted with major cities such as Split and Zadar, pristine beaches such as Brela, and so many historic sites from Medieval times back to the Paleolithic era. The Captain and crew knew the islands intimately, and took us to scenic anchorages, fantastic restaurants and some out of the way places for truly amazing sunsets. My partner and I and four of our friends were able to immerse ourselves in the region’s culture and traditions.”
Get Off the Beaten Track
“As a family, we have travelled a lot, and we were looking for somewhere completely different. The charter experts at Luxury Charter Group suggested some amazing charter superyachts available in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Myanmar. We chose a magnificent catamaran and explored the picturesque islands and bays from Phuket to Langkawi, Malaysia. Apart from the tropical scenery, the diving was incredible. The Andaman Sea is spectacular for marine life! Onshore, we hiked and relaxed on the beautiful beaches. The food was mouth-wateringly delicious! Fresh fruit, seafood and amazing curries for every meal, thanks to our onboard Chef.”
Spoil Yourself by Chartering a New Build ... the Luxury Charter Yacht BABAC
“For our charter in the South of France, Luxury Charter Group recommended we charter BABAC, the new Lagoon Seventy7 luxury sailing catamaran and the first of its kind available for charter. BABAC is a spacious catamaran with so many features, our family had plenty of room to spread out and enjoy every minute of our charter. The two-level master suite with its own private balcony was our favourite part of the yacht, and the kids loved the massive deck on the bow with lounge area and trampoline. There were heaps of watertoys onboard which were fun to try. Being one of the first to charter this special yacht made us all feel very special."
