Swap the boardroom suit for a wetsuit before diving headfirst from the aft deck into clear, turquoise waters. Anchoring off a sandy-shored island in a secluded bay aboard a yacht is the ideal way to while away long, hot days in privacy, with top-tier service and paradise at your fingertips. Offering freedom, safety and comfort together, life aboard a private superyacht is carefree.

A Caribbean yacht charter is the most enjoyable way to escape the chill of city life , island hopping to a new location every day. Expect it to be a hot and humid 30°C with a scattering of tropical rain showers but follow the locals’ lead and cool off with a dip in the inviting shallow surf. Alternatively, the quintessential yachting destination of the Maldives is best experienced by boat offering year-round sunshine, white velvet sand beaches and bounty island bliss.

Things to look for in a winter superyacht charter

Experience life under sail or lounge on a sprawling beach club at anchor, the choice is yours. Either way, be sure to pick a yacht with an experienced crew who know the best anchorages in the area, aboard a yacht with a shallow draft so you can tuck in close to the reef-lined shore. A comfortable superyacht tender for guests to island hop together is also a must, as is a treasure chest of watertoys.

You can't have too many watertoys, from adrenaline-pumping waverunners to SeaBobs and paddleboards, e-foils and waterslides

The Bahamas provides a serene setting for a soothing massage on a beautiful Bahamian beach, though the spa facilities aboard most superyachts will give paradise a run for its money. Start the morning with yoga on the aft deck followed by hours of rejuvenating treatments. Finish off with a stretch in the sauna or a midnight dip in the on-deck hot tub for a starlit end to the day.

Entertainment areas for all ages

While the high-octane pursuits of fast-paced jetskis and kiteboarding may excite the older crowd, for younger generations the joy of mastering a stand-up paddleboard knows no bounds. Marvel at the marine life beneath your feet in the balmy gin-clear waters. Take a SeaBob into the shallows and swim among the fish, ducking and diving with every turn. Even the array of yacht tenders straddles guests’ needs, providing wake for boarders by day and sophisticated guest transfer by night.
