While many yacht owners are content to offer their yachts for hire in the tried-and-true winter cruising ground of the Caribbean, Jan Verkerk is always looking for new destinations in the hopes of enticing potential charter customers to explore land and sea far from the beaten path.
This year, Jan has committed his 70 meter expedition-style yacht, M/Y SHERAKHAN to Antarctica.
Earlier this week, we received an email from the yacht’s manager: “Motor yacht SHERAKHAN has just crossed the equator on her way to Antarctica! (She) will arrive in the Falkland Islands on the 6th of February to start her Antarctica adventure.”
One of the largest yachts available for rent, the 70 meter SHERAKHAN offers accommodations for up to 26 passengers in thirteen staterooms.
If Antarctica is too remote, Jan is open to accepting trips along the east or west coast of South America, or Panama, or even head back to the ever-popular islands of St Barts and St Martin to accept a traditional Caribbean yacht charter booking.
Her rates begin at €350,000 EUROS per week, plus expenses.
