Does chartering an unfamiliar yacht mean familiar adjustments? It’s never the big stuff – the yacht is amazing, the location is beautiful and the crew couldn’t be more helpful. But finding the right light switch, working the AV kit, having your Negroni mixed just right… It’s only the little details, but we know that they matter to you. Cutlery, crockery, glassware, IT, curtains, carpets, bed linen... it’s maybe not what you would choose. It’s only for a week or two but... wouldn’t it be great if you could go yachting and stay at home?
Think about it
It's more personal
You have a trusted crew that knows and understands you: how you like your eggs, your children’s favourite bedtime stories, which calls you want to take.
It's more familiar
Install IT systems that are as capable and easy to use as those you have in your offices around the world. Even here, you’ll have important decisions to make.
It's more flexible
Explore wherever you want, for a day, a week, a month, as long as you want. Just pick up your passports and go, everything you need is already on board.
It's more 'you'
Your own interior design means you arrive at a genuine home-from-home: your own style, artworks, chef, cellar, gym – everything you know and love. You’re home.
