Manager's report

Monaco-based Charter Manager Sonia Palfrey was left dazzled after her first visit of the season to the 73.2m (240.1ft) PLANET NINE.

'What a yacht!' said Sonia after inspecting PLANET NINE, the latest exciting new addition to the Burgess charter fleet. 'She ticks every family charter box and then some.'

During a guided tour by the captain and chief stewardess, Sonia's overall impression was one of volume and light: 'Space, space, space! She has massive interior volume - 2,100GT is a lot of yacht - and the floor to ceiling windows bring in so much natural light. It's such a bright environment, it creates a real 'feel good' sensation.'
 

In terms of accommodation she's perfectly designed for joint family parties. 'She has two beautiful main master suites on the main deck, one with its own office and conference suite if business calls, and a cosy private room between them that's perfect for a baby's cot or a massage table for morning rub-downs.

'There's also a lower deck VIP suite with its own sitting room that can be converted into a second double. There are several cabins that can be made available for staff, which families may need. With an elevator to all decks, she welcomes every generation of the family too.'

Those craving relaxation and pampering need look no further. 'There's a wonderful beach club with sea terrace on the lower deck with a glass walled sauna so you can enjoy the views while feeling the heat,' adds Sonia. 'There is a dedicated masseuse on the crew for all sorts of therapies and treatments, and a yoga instructor for morning stretches.

'If you prefer your exercise to be competitive, the helipad works brilliantly as a games deck for all sorts of ball sports. Of course it's first and foremost a helipad and there is a helicopter available too for an additional cost, which really expands your range to explore the attractions ashore. Below the helipad is a clever hangar so that huge deck space is always ready for sports, gym equipment or yoga.
 

'She also has not one but two incredibly talented head chefs. I was so impressed with their variety of cuisines - they cover every base - and the dining spaces are exceptional. There is dining inside and out on the upper deck in a wonderful decked lounge area overlooking the helipad.

'Or you could choose to enjoy a relaxed lunch on the sun deck, shaded by the hardtop, after a morning's fun in the jacuzzi. Honestly,' concludes Sonia, 'she has such wonderful lounging and relaxation areas, spa features and deck space – I feel she really has it all.'
