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.
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).
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.
The weekly rate for up to 26 guests is $460,000 plus running expenses – items such as food, fuel, dockage, bar, etc. (+ Commercial Passenger Ship local taxes only when applicable). The charter fee includes personal laundry, normal communication costs, hotel supplies and basic internet (248/512 internet speed). Higher internet speed is possible, but not included in the charter fee.
Further details of seasonal rates:
After spending time in Antarctica, the yacht will head to South America and the Caribbean, then on to the Mediterranean for the summer. Here are her current, confirmed expedition yacht charter vacations, and her schedule:

About a year ago, we rebranded our business with a new focus, driven by our motto, “What if we built our business for Generosity?”
As leaders in arranging Mediterranean yacht charter vacations, along with private yacht holidays throughout Greece and the Caribbean, we recognized an opportunity, and an obligation, to grow our business for the greater social good.
Realizing you can rent a yacht from a number of qualified charter brokers around the world, we came up with a simple reason to book your yacht with us: “Charter a Yacht and Change the World.”
Wow – what a year 2015 turned out to be!
We are so proud of our clients – both repeat charterers and new customers. They embraced our commitment to sustainability and generosity.
With enthusiasm, they chose our reusable water bottles in lieu of disposable plastic bottles (to help reduce plastic pollution in our oceans). When we told them a portion of their charter cost would be donated to charity in their name, and that we wanted their input in selecting the charity, they were quick to direct multiple donations to their favorite causes.
Thanks to our clients, among MANY other things, we were able to:
Looking back, 2015 was a fantastic year.
We enter 2016 with a number of new yachts and new destinations to offer our clients. We have the brand new expedition yacht LEGEND, available for experiencing Greenland and Norway’s Fjords; and the world’s largest sailing yacht for charter made of wood, the yacht LAMIMA, available in the exotic islands of Thailand and Burma.
Our team is energized to share these yachts and destinations with our clients – for each charter vacation will give our clients a chance to reconnect with family and friends, embrace diverse cultures, and rejuvenate mind, body, and spirit.
Together, we will make a difference. When you choose to live a generous life, you start to change…and so does the world around you!!!
Happy New Year,
