The Caribbean may be the most popular winter destination for many of the world’s finest charter yachts, but some of the Burgess charter fleet are heading even further afield this winter. One such superyacht is the 60m (196.9ft) RAMBLE ON ROSE, which is embarking on an adventure through the southern hemisphere. From the southern shores of Thailand to the islands of the South Pacific, her charter guests can explore the most remote corners of the Pacific without giving up on first-world luxuries.
Promising a week, or several weeks, of adventure and the finest on board living a superyacht can provide, Burgess charter experts bring you their destination highlights for her forthcoming adventures.
- The Maldives from mid-November to early December 2019
- Thailand, Myanmar or Malaysia from 8 to 28 January 2020
- Between April and mid-December 2020, RAMBLE ON ROSE will consider charters in Vanuatu, New Caledonia, Fiji, Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea
With a host of attractions located in her crystal-clear blue waters the hauntingly beautiful cruising grounds of Thailand encompass a range of natural, spiritual and artistic attractions. RAMBLE ON ROSE is available to charter in South West Thailand in the New Year.
Embark on an adventure through the uninhabited islands that dot the turquoise waters at regular intervals. Cruise through the Andaman Sea from Phuket, the reigning maritime jewel of South East Asia, stopping in well-protected anchorages and swimming ashore to pristine beaches or jumping in to discover the amazing underwater life that these waters provide.
The Solomon Islands
Stretching from Vanuatu to Bougainville, the Solomon Islands lie in the South West Pacific Ocean and offer those prepared to venture to such remote shores the chance to explore an underwater world of coral reefs, volcanoes and hundreds of World War II shipwreck dive sites left over from the War in the Pacific between Japan and the USA. Ashore they also provide a rich cultural heritage with natives made up of Oceania’s three main cultural groups – Melanesia, Polynesia and Micronesia.
Lying south of the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu also offers a rich diversity of attractions both above and below the waterline. Comprising more than 80 islands strewn over 800 miles in the South Pacific Ocean, the islands remain unspoiled and authentic but still provide superyacht guests with the option to step ashore for a pampering spa treatment at one of the island chain’s luxury resorts. The jungle-clad interior landscape is ripe for exploration with hiking and cycling trails readily available, while the underwater world offers spellbinding coral reefs and further relics from World War II.
Best known for an underwater world rich in marine life, New Caledonia is another archipelago in the South Pacific that offers a wide variety of world-class diving opportunities. Home to the world’s largest lagoon and the second-largest barrier reef in the world located off the main island of Grande Terre, the expanse of sheltered azure water created by the lagoon is a UNESCO world heritage site and covers approximately 9,300 square miles.
The 400-plus islands surrounding Grande Terre are within easy cruising distance of one another, making this South Pacific jewel perfect for a week-long island-hopping charter on board RAMBLE ON ROSE.
Papua New Guinea
Papua New Guinea is the latest cruising ground to attract a new breed of charterer keen to set sail on a journey through more unspoiled and less travelled waters. From sea kayaking through secluded coves to discovering volcanic landscapes and rainforest ashore, the opportunities for diving, snorkeling and genuine adventure are endless. The waters are blessed with year-round warm temperatures and provide both amazing underwater life and well-protected anchorages for a good night’s sleep.
New Zealand and the America's Cup 2021
Superyachts don’t generally need much excuse to venture to New Zealand with its spectacular and varied landscape, but with the America’s Cup coming to Auckland in 2021 expect to see the waters brimming with both motor and sailing yachts as they head to Auckland Harbour to see Team New Zealand take on the Challenger. Charter RAMBLE ON ROSE to witness these magnificent machines flying around the course as they battle it out for the oldest sporting trophy in the world.
Whether you are looking to explore the underwater world of the South Pacific, explore the unique and ancient cultures of the Pacific islanders, or witness the phenomenal racing machines in action during the America’s Cup 2021 in New Zealand, RAMBLE ON ROSE is the perfect yacht on which to explore.
Refitted earlier this year with a full AV and IT upgrade and a stunning new interior, RAMBLE ON ROSE is the perfect yacht on which to explore the phenomenal cruising grounds of South East Asia and the South Pacific. Not only does she have an extensive sun deck, but she also has a lavish beach club – ideal for accessing the outstanding selection of water toys carried on board. Her 15 highly professional and enthusiastic superyacht crew are always on hand to teach guests how to use her wide range of equipment, including sailing dinghies, SUPs, jetskis, SeaBobs, water skis, wakeboard or the flyboard.
She is also an approved RYA training centre for personal watercraft, so even those with no experience can rest assured that they will be able to ride the wave of adrenaline that only a superyacht toy can provide. Genuinely one of the finest yachts to have cruised these waters, RAMBLE ON ROSE is a charter opportunity not to be missed.
