A charter on PANTHALASSA will transform your notion of what life on board a sailing superyacht can be like. Forget fusty decor and dark rooms, she is light, bright and unquestionably cool. Think expansive sun deck lounging, chic design that evokes 1960s Hollywood and colourful modern art.
For a zen start to the day, how about some yoga, a massage on the sun deck or a quick dip off the swim platform before a delicious breakfast of fruit, pastries and dishes prepared to order on the main deck aft. You waste little time in getting out onto the water to take PANTHALASSA’s large selection of toys for a spin. Alongside the two fast and sleek tenders, options include jetskis, SeaBobs, waterskiing and wakeboarding, paddleboarding and a range of inflatables.
The crew surprise you with beach Olympics followed by lunch on a secluded shore, with perfectly grilled lobster and freshly shaken cocktails. After a little sunbathing, those who enjoy diving or snorkelling take off to a nearby wreck site for the afternoon. The remainder of the group heads back on board to relax on the sunloungers and sun pads dotted around PANTHALASSA’s decks, perhaps trying their hand at catching dinner off the swim platform. As the afternoon draws on, high tea is served on the sumptuous sofas of the main deck aft while you all share stories of the day’s exploits.
For a moment of quiet, head inside. Designed by Foster + Partners, PANTHALASSA’s interior pedigree is exceptional. The open plan lounge features a variety of comfortable sofas and chairs, as well as a bar and intimate dining space illuminated by skylight in the day. Central to the lounge is a stunning oval staircase, which connects and illuminates all three decks.
There is flexible accommodation for 12 in two master suites with pullmans, and four further double cabins, two with pullmans. The spaces are bright and minimalist, with leather panelled walls and seating, warm-toned woods and marble bathrooms. They are all of near equal size, making her a great option for groups of friends.
As the sun drifts towards the horizon, go up to the sun deck, now transformed into a chic beach bar setting with vistas across the bay, and bespoke cocktails complemented by creative canapes. A stunning tasting menu is served on the main deck aft before you finish up the evening with a nightcap on the foredeck, the water gently lapping at the hull as you gaze up to spot shooting stars.
