ALL ABOUT SUPERYACHT VERTIGO

She is built by Alloy Yachts and designed by Philippe Briand.  The 67 meter yacht VERTIGO is the largest sailing yacht built in the southern hemisphere.

 

FEATURES AND AMENITIES

Vertigo carries and affords multiple features and amenities.  For instance, loft-style interiors, custom-designed by Christian Liaigre and an oversized Jacuzzi hot tub with retractable sunpads.  In addition, there are bimini covers, and glass screens on the air-conditioned deck.  Additionally, she has a midarette gymnasium with direct sea access and an open-air cinema screen.  Ready for some fun?  Watertoys include 4 tenders, and importantly, an 8 meter Limo tender with removable roof.  Not to be outdone, sailing dinghies, kayaks, paddleboards, scuba equipment, inflatables, and towable toys join the fun.

Patagonia

PATAGONIA YACHT CHARTER

We find the idea of a Patagonia yacht charter immensely intriguing.  It is a sparsely populated area. Specifically located at the southern tip South America.  The western coastline belongs to Chile, and the eastern side is part of Argentina. The opportunities for exploration and adventure are numerous, as this region comprises the southernmost portion of the Andes mountains.  Just east of the mountains, there is great bio-diversity with deserts, steppes, and grasslands. The western coast of Patagonia borders the Pacific ocean, and the eastern coast borders the Atlantic ocean.

Antarctic Yacht Charter Guests Enjoy Amazing Wildlife Encounters

Posted on

PREVIOUS BLOG POST

We shared 70-meter motor yacht SHERAKHAN previously.  She is an expedition yacht charter vessel heading to the Antarctic.

 

ANTARCTIC YACHT UPDATE

We received an update today from Sioned. She is 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!”

The charter guests and crew were treated in South Georgia to what Williams described as

“…witnessed the awesome sight of a colony of around half a million King Penguins and thousands of fur seals on the beach.”
