Nine Ways to Enjoy Your Time Onboard Your Private Yacht Charter
One of the joys of chartering a private luxury yacht is that the yacht provides it all - the accommodation, the transport, the restaurant, and the entertainment. This is especially reassuring in these days of social distancing. There is something very special about spending quality time in a luxurious environment with your family and friends and no outside intrusions.
Your luxury charter yacht is your own private floating resort. The possibilities open to you for making lasting memories with your loved ones are endless:
1. Make Use of All That your Yacht Offers
Your Crew will introduce you to all the toys on board and if you have never tried a SUP or jetski now 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.
And if holidays for you are all about doing nothing ... an hour or two in the Jacuzzi being served your special cocktails might just be your sort of heaven. Or make use of your yacht's enviable multi-media system – the latest movies and music with quality resolution and sounds in sumptuous surroundings.
2. Enjoy your Own Private Chef
On board you have your very own chef who can personalise the cuisine to accommodate all tastes and any dietary requirements. Should you want canapes at sunset, a late brunch after a night of festivities, a ten course degustation delight, a casual al-fresco feast or all of the above your chef will provide world-class dining with the freshest of ingredients and served according to your wishes.
This is so much better than a restaurant … here it is all about you and there is only one table … yours! If you are a foodie then we can advise which yachts have the best chefs!
3. Host a Theme Party
Your crew are very used to keeping things interesting away from land-based activities, and themed parties are popular with both charter guests and their crew. Not only do you get to dress up (your crew can help with props) but often your Captain and crew will replace their uniforms with party attire and join in the fun as well.
Your stewardesses will style your yacht in theme-appropriate decorations and mix up on-point cocktails, while your chef will create a delicious menu to follow suit. You get to choose the party theme: “Ahoy” you say let’s have a Pirate Party, or perhaps with a James Bond theme in your ball gowns and tuxedos you’ll have your martini “shaken not stirred”. Whatever you select you are in for an unforgettable event that your family or friends will be talking about for years to come!
5. Relax and Socialise
One of the joys of chartering a yacht is that the chores of daily life disappear, and you have lots of time. Time to relax over a leisurely breakfast with your companions. Time to enjoy sundowner cocktails and canapes.
Use this time to indulge yourself and your companions while your attentive Captain and crew take care of you all. You are with your nearest and dearest and it is the perfect time to rejuvenate and reconnect with them. These are treasured moments with family and friends.
6. Get to Know your Crew
You have at your fingertips a wealth of information and experience. You'd be surprised at who your crew are. Many of them are well educated with degrees in everything from marine biology to environmental engineering. You're very likely to have a dive instructor onboard; maybe a masseuse.
You may have crew who are hairdressers or yoga instructors, musicians or florists and most are genuinely happy to share their skills and knowledge with you.
7. Take a Trip in the Tender
You have a powerful tender with professional Crew at your disposal. They'll prepare some supplies ... drinks, possibly a picnic, snorkel gear, and sunscreen ... and take you exploring. Maybe you'll discover a reef with a myriad of colourful fish and coral to snorkel on or ashore remote Roman ruins with a crumbling amphitheater to clamber over alone.
Your crew can almost always find you an isolated beach for a once-in-a-lifetime feast with the sand and seawater tickling your toes!
8. Stay Fit
While offerings of food and drink will be generous onboard your private yacht this does not need to mean a cessation of your health and fitness routine. For those who wish to maintain the rigours of training or dip a toe into a gym workout for the first time, the world’s most covetable charter yachts can deliver with dedicated gyms and health facilities to stretch then soothe the body, mind and spirit.
More and more mega yachts in charter are equipped with facilities dedicated to health and wellbeing. We can guide you to the perfect yacht that offers impressive facilities and qualified crew.
9. Get in the Water
And of course, the sea is all around you – just jump right in. There is nothing so refreshing and relaxing as being in the water. And you will of course be in some of the best waters in the world. On board your charter yacht there will also be any number water toys to make this even more enjoyable .... from inflatable islands with seating and bars to slides and even mini-aquatic parks.
Finally, do make sure that you take the time to take in the beautiful scenery unfolding all around you. .
And don't forget the spectacular sunsets and the stargazing at night – these are some of the most magical moments of life on board and an idyllic way to end the day.
