Let’s be honest, we are not all adventurers at heart, some of us want to just kick back with a Pina Colada in the sunshine after a dip in the Caribbean Sea. There are those, however, that seek a more adventurous time on their charter, perhaps exploring a Fjord lined with snow-capped mountains or a remote Antarctic peninsula.
Our charter fleet can accommodate all interests, allowing your inner adventurer to shine, or simply to soak up some rays. Check out some of our hot (and cold) picks for a sensational charter this winter.
Winter Sun- Highlander
This 50m yacht is the hot pick for indulging under the Caribbean sun this winter, where you can unwind on her sun deck and take in the idyllic scenery from the hot tub. With seemingly endless stretches of white sandy beaches to explore, the Caribbean is a popular destination for the winter months. It is not just about relaxing though, each of the islands is unique in its terrain, and you can go hiking up volcanoes and mountain ranges or slip into the crystal blue waters for a spot of diving and snorkelling around the coral reefs.
If that is not enough for you, Highlander has an extensive water sports collection onboard from Seabobs and Scuba gear to paddleboards, waterskis and an inflatable gym. If the stunning setting is not enough, there is plenty available in the toy cupboard to keep everyone entertained.
Winter Snow – Planet Nine
One of the most premium picks for an Antarctic adventure in complete luxury, allowing you to be one of the few to explore one of the remotest parts of the world. Onboard you will want for nothing as she is equipped with a myriad of facilities, from her impressive beach club to her steam room and sauna. Her 180-degree view observation deck means guests can soak up the spectacular surroundings without braving the elements as this Ice Class cruises around the Antarctic.
The master suite takes up one complete deck of the five-deck superyacht, giving you the ultimate getaway and some serious ‘you’ time. When you are choosing to be more adventurous, you can make use of the yachts own helicopter to get you closer to the un-touched snow-capped mountains.
Winter Sun – Mermaid
Back to the warmer options within our charter range, next up on our winter list is the motor-sailor Mermaid. She will be spending the winter cruising the Eastern Med, and as her crew are from the area, they have an in-depth knowledge of the Adriatic and Greek cruising grounds to be able to create a unique charter.
You do not need to head to the Caribbean to get your winter rays in and while cruising through the Adriatic you can enjoy a gastronomic tour of the region served to you by the talented onboard chef. This charter, full of diverse cuisine and culture allows you to explore the fine architecture of many of the old-town cobbled lanes of Koper, Slovenia, and Zadar, Croatia. As well as taking in the scenic route on the way to the Bay of Kotor, Montenegro.
Winter Snow – Firebird
Now, heading towards higher latitudes our final winter snow options is onboard the Oyster 885, Firebird, which has been fully kitted out for more extreme conditions. Complete with boot warmers, you can wake up in the morning cruising onboard your private floating chalet in the Norwegian Fjords and ski tour up to ride down pristine powder fields that drop down to the still waters for a completely unique experience. At the end of the day, you can relax with some delicious freshly prepared tea and cakes in the knowledge you have earned your folly.
Alternatively, the jaw-dropping scenery in the Lyngen Alps in the Tromso region offer countless cultural excursions as well as being a photographer’s dream location, with the allure of the Northern Lights.
With a new location on the books for Firebird, heading to the even more remote island of Svalbard, in May/June, this ‘final frontier’ before the north pole, offers more adventures of sledding, skidoo adventures, ice cave tours and wildlife.
These options are just a few of the charters we can arrange for you. With access to over 2800 yachts in the industry, get in touch with our dedicated and friendly team to help plan your perfect winter escape, be it for the sun or the snow:
