Robb Report's 21 Ultimate Gifts: Cup Runneth Over

Sheila J. Gibson

Whether by land, sea, or air, Los Angeles–based travel company Private Jetaway delivers, and this all-inclusive 24-day America’s Cup vacation for you and as many as seven of your friends includes all three modes of transportation. You will depart Los Angeles aboard a sumptuously appointed Boeing Business Jet and while away the hours sipping Cristal, watching DVDs on the 42-inch plasma screen, or, if you must, receiving faxes and e-mails from the office and working on your laptop.

Upon arrival in Auckland, New Zealand, a limousine will transport you to the docks where your 100-foot-plus sailing yacht will be strategically moored to offer a perfect vantage point for watching the America’s Cup races, which begin on February 15. The crew, which includes a classically trained chef who will prepare gourmet meals for you to enjoy al fresco, will tend to your every need. Between races, the captain will sail you to local beaches, islands, and other places of interest. The yacht is equipped with scuba diving and snorkeling gear, kayaks, and personal watercraft, enabling you to have as much fun off the yacht as on it.

Price: $1,250,000, for eight people.
Contact: Private Jetaway, 323.930.2244, www.privatejetaway.com

Only one package will be sold. Any changes or substitutions to the described trip will affect the price. Transportation to and from Los Angeles is not included in the price. The trip will coincide with the America’s Cup races, which begin February 15.
