Earlier this month, we blogged about the 70-meter motor yacht SHERAKHAN, an expedition yacht charter vessel making her way to the Antarctic.
We received an update today from Sioned Williams, one of the yacht owner's assistants:
"Heading ever further south, with temperatures dropping and the number of icebergs sighted increasing daily, SHERAKHAN arrived in Grytviken yesterday. Having been cleared in by customs, and all on board received the South Georgia stamp in their passports, the guests and crew visited the local museum in Grytviken where they met all the locals – all 20 of them!"
While in South Georgia, the charter guests and crew were treated to what Williams described as, "…having witnessed the awesome sight of a colony of around half a million King Penguins and thousands of fur seals on the beach."
Next stop on the itinerary – the superyacht is now cruising towards St. Andrew’s Bay, making way towards the Antarctic Sounds.
Motor yacht Sherakhan offers accommodations for up to 26 passengers in thirteen staterooms. She is available from March 1, in Ushuaia or the Falklands. Panama yacht charter and Costa Rica yacht charter vacations are also available beginning in late March, as the vessel heads north to the Caribbean.
