GENEVIEVE combines all the elements you could wish for on a superyacht charter. She marries a top sailing pedigree and elegant interior, refreshed in 2017, with a host of fun activities and variety of social spaces that allow the freedom to enjoy time together as a group or to unwind privately.
Kick off the day with a refreshing dip off the swim platform or enjoy a quiet flat white at the pilothouse bar while taking in the panoramic views as the sun rises in the sky. It’s a short trip through the sliding doors to the cockpit, where you make plans for the day over a delicious, freshly prepared breakfast.
GENEVIEVE’S garage is packed with toys; try waterskiing, wakeboarding or kneeboarding behind one of the yacht’s tenders, or take a trip to a nearby grotto for a snorkelling expedition. If you fancy your chances at catching dinner, the crew will be happy to help you cast a line off the back of the yacht. An informal lunch is served in the cockpit under the shade of the bimini, with the water gently lapping at the hull a few feet away.
After lunch, it’s time to find a new anchorage. There is nothing that reawakens the spirit like looking up at the mighty unfurled sails as they propel you through the water. Take the helm, under the guidance of the captain, or simply relax from the comfort of the cockpit.
With the anchors lowered, choose between sunloungers on the foredeck or aft of the helms, the vast sun pad on the sun deck or the floating inflatable sun island. The pilothouse is a popular base for afternoon games or the plush and homely lower deck lounge is a perfect sanctuary; curl up with a good book, occasionally gazing up at the mast through the spectacular skylight.
Head to the lower deck to change for dinner. The full beam master suite has ample storage, as well as a spacious en suite bathroom for a sailing yacht of this length. A VIP queen suite, double cabin with fixed upper single berth, and twin cabin complete the accommodation arrangement.
With superb views of the quiet anchorage at sunset, sundowners and canapes are served in the cockpit, while a showreel of the day’s highlights is played on the dropdown TV. The adults make their way down to the lower deck dining area to enjoy the chef’s delicious culinary transformation of the catch of the day, while the children stay in the cockpit to enjoy a relaxed al fresco dinner and movie, chosen from the yacht’s extensive entertainment system.
