NEWLY OPENED DATES FOR ANTARCTICA YACHT CHARTER ESCAPE

Due to a last-minute cancellation, 1-800 Yacht Charters is pleased to announce a special opportunity to discover Antarctica this January on the world’s largest ice-breaking yacht, the 77 meter (254 ft) motor yacht LEGEND.

 

THE ULTIMATE LUXURY EXPEDITION

We first introduced our readers to expedition yacht charter vessel LEGEND and her upcoming schedule for Antarctica in a blog in October, when owner Jan Verkerk gave the green light to accept reservations in Antarctica through mid February, 2017.  The ship was built as a commercial vessel in 1973, then purchased by Verkek and outfitted in 2015-2016 as the ultimate luxury ice-breaker (enabling charter clients the unique opportunity to explore one of the last great frontiers on the planet earth, from the comfort of a luxury yacht charter vessel).

 

ABOUT CHARTER YACHT LEGEND

The yacht is packed full of features – from a helicopter to a 3-man submarine. Super yacht LEGEND allows her guests to explore this rare, frozen world from an entirely new angle (think of the early explorers who trekked across the frozen tundra in snowshoes and slept in tents…brrrrr…!!!

Intimate gatherings and relaxation can be found in the cinema, the Balinese-themed spa, or bubbling away on deck in the heated Jacuzzi.  There’s even a real fireplace in the saloon where you can cozy up and enjoy a good book.

Active guests can get their hearts pumping with a workout in the gym, exploring the ice packs on snow scooters, or hiking and coming face-to-face with the wildlife.
