Posted on

ADVENTURE & LUXURY – HAND IN HAND

The hottest trend in yachting will continue this summer, as motor yacht LEGEND joins a growing  fleet of luxury yacht charter vessels forgoing the Mediterranean for extreme Arctic and Northern Europe adventures.

On the heels of a winter expedition to Antarctica, the 77 meter Icon yacht LEGEND will relocate to northern Europe for the summer, with a spring pitstop in the frozen tundra of Greenland.  Charters have already been secured by action-seeking travelers in both May and June.

READY FOR ADVENTURE?

Activities offered aboard this yacht charter boat include whale watching, heliskiing (heli-skiing), and rides via dog sleds and snow scooters…

With the advent of ultra-luxury expedition yachts entering the charter market, the decades-old adventure travel movement has finally reached the luxury sector of the market. Once the realm of budget-conscious travelers, willingly “roughing it” in hostels and tents,  expedition yachts allow affluent charterers the opportunity to experience an adventure travel vacation without compromising creature comforts.

The growing list of yachts offering activity-oriented charters in the Arctic and northern Europe include 229 foot superyacht SHERAKHAN,  205 foot Icon yacht BATON ROUGE (in Norway in June), and the 238 foot Abeking and Rasmussen motoryacht CLOUDBREAK (scheduled for May 2019 in Greenland).

A closer look at yacht LEGEND demonstrates the appeal of these modern expedition yachts:

KEY FEATURES

  • Commercially certified helipad
  • 3-man submarine
  • Ice-breaking hull
  • Snow scooters (snowmobiles)
  • Balinese spa
  • Cinema
  • Aft-deck heated pool
  • Gym
  • 26 guests in 13 staterooms

Yes, indeed –this luxury yacht charter vessel is packed full of features.  From the helicopter to the 3-person submarine, this yacht allows her guest to explore this cold-weather destinations from entirely new angles. Relaxation can be found watching movies in the cinema, getting a massage in the Balinese-themed spa below deck, enjoying cocktails on deck in the ultra-heated Jacuzzi, or just cuddling up by the fireplace with a good book. More action can be found in the gymnasium, or exploring on the snow scooters, or just coming face to face with the wildlife on land. Perfect photo opportunities for a memorable vacation of a lifetime.

 

HEADCOUNT

A big “plus” of many expedition yachts is the ability to accommodate large families and groups of friends.  Whereas most luxury charter yachts are capped at a maximum headcount of 12 passengers, yachts like LEGEND and SHERAKHAN can both legally and comfortably accommodate 26 guests.

Take a Soak – Top 5 Luxury Yacht Charter Hot Tubs

Posted on

From gymnasiums, helicopters and onboard Kaleidescape movie theaters, today’s modern superyacht has every affluent amenity imaginable.  Yet the most requested amenity by prospective charter customers remains one of the oldest, time-tested features:  the on-deck hot tub.

Is there a better way to unwind each night during a yachting vacation than enjoying a warm soak under the stars?

The benefits of hot tub hydrotherapy are well-documented – warm water therapy can promote relaxation, stress reduction and pain relief.  It’s also a fun way to spend quality time with your travel companions  – sipping wine and planning your next day’s adventures.

In the early years of the charter industry, most ondeck tubs were portable tubs – the same as those found in many homes.  Today’s ondeck megayacht hydrotherapy tubs are permanent, built-in amenities, designed by naval architects and molded into the yacht’s superstructure. 

Today we take a look at five of the best hydrotherapy tubs on five equally spectacular charter yachts:

 

SHERAKHAN
The 228-foot motor yacht SHERAKHAN
has one of the largest sundeck hot tubs aboard any charter yacht.  The tub features an opaque bottom, allowing natural light to filter into the two-story dining room directly below.

ST. EKATERINA
Benetti yacht charter enthusiasts like to brag about the hot tub onboard the 196ft motor yacht ST. EKATERINA
(formerly motor yacht XANADU).  The large tub is within easy viewing distance of a two-way cinema screen. Charter guests can enjoy a film while soaking in the tub, and then not miss a single scene while moving over to the sundeck wet bar for a refreshing cocktail.

BATON ROUGE
The 205-foot Icon motor yacht BATON ROUGE 
features an oversized sundeck hot tub that doubles as an endless pool with swimming jets for anyone wanting more than the regular water pressure. Overhead, cool-water jets shower guests in a light, refreshing mist.

ANDREAS L
Another Benetti motor yacht, the 196ft yacht ANDREAS L
has a hot tub with submerged bar stools, for guests who prefer to enjoy their refreshments sitting upright as opposed to the common hot tub lounging position.

NUMPTIA
Leave it to the Italians to redefine the modern style of the ondeck hot tub.  The owner of the 70 meter (230 ft) Rossi Navi motor yacht HIGH POWER III (ex-Numptia)  turned to Design Studio Spadolini, of Florence to create a modern hot tub masterpiece.  The floor-level tub and endless-style pool is the centerpiece on the yacht’s sun deck, and features colored mood lighting, an infinity glass edge on one side, and two powerful waterfall-style showers dropping volumes of water into the pool.
