One of the most fantastic aspects of a superyacht charter – and there are many – is the opportunity to visit some of the most inaccessible, exclusive and beautiful places. Unlike most long-haul travellers who are limited to just a few of these ‘desert islands’; those who charter a superyacht from Burgess have the whole archipelago to explore… By day you’ll lounge on deserted beaches and swim over pristine coral, then retreat at night to the comfort of your own floating luxury villa
The Maldives with literally thousands of reefs, cays and islands to discover is a superb destination for divers, both novice and experienced. Also available here is TRIPLE SEVEN with light, minimal interiors echoing the clean white beaches and providing a welcome place to relax after a day on the water. Cruise between the islands, some uninhabited, others with six-star resorts – the choice is yours.
With an equally flexible layout that can accommodate either eight single friends or four couples, SAPPHIRE remains in the Indian Ocean all year round, dividing her time between the Maldives and South-East Asia. Other yachts, like TITANIA find themselves in the Maldives en route to South-East Asia and beyond. With seven stunning double suites, a gym, massage room and swim-up bar, TITANIA is a world-class yacht wherever you choose to anchor for the night.
South-East Asia also offers great diving off Thailand’s coasts and Burma’s Mergui Archipelago, as well as fascinating culture and exciting cuisine on shore. The island of Phuket, on Thailand’s Andaman Sea coast, is a popular superyacht hub, having several luxury marinas as well as some superb hotels and restaurants on shore: the first and arguably finest Aman resort was built here and Nikki Beach have recently set up in Bang Tao bay.
The predictable monsoon winds that govern the seasons of South-East Asia and the wider Indian Ocean are great for cruising under sail; MONDANGO 3 is a sleek flybridge ketch, with colourful interiors and great deck spaces, including a jacuzzi. Perfect for island hopping, from Phuket you could head south through a myriad of limestone and coral sand islands to Malaysia, or beyond through the Malacca Straits towards Singapore and Borneo.
For the northern summer, MONDANGO 3 continues to voyage into the South Pacific. This vast ocean offers some of the best cruising in the world, its remoteness lends exclusivity – and those who charter a superyacht can experience its true diversity and beauty up close. It’s little wonder that NOBLE HOUSE is based here. She carries everything you need to enjoy a charter amongst deserted atolls and is a watersport school so guests can safely explore the jewel-like fish that flit through the glittering aqua waters. Alternatively make the most of the world’s largest sailing catamaran, HEMISPHERE, while she’s based in Fiji this winter – or perhaps catch up with her in New Zealand during 2015.
From the Mediterranean to the Antipodes, BURGESS can ensure you find your perfect superyacht charter this winter; so what are you waiting for?
