Great Escapes: Caribbean and Mediterranean

  • Karen Cakebread

Panthalassa combines  the relaxed informality that adventurers seek in a ketch with a stylish design that lacks for nothing in the elegance department. The 184-foot Perini Navi yacht sports a light-filled interior designed by Foster + Partners, with six cabins (all with en suite facilities) that accommodate a total of 12 guests. Two of these cabins offer a choice of king or twin bed arrangements, and the availability of an additional four beds allows for varied accommodations that make Panthalassa ideal for groups of friends. A striking oval staircase (below) links the yacht’s three levels, which include accents such as leather-paneled walls and handmade silk rugs. Another interesting interior feature is a soundproofed dining room that can convert to a conference room or a theater. On deck, guests can lounge in the shade of a Bedouin-style tent or gather on the flybridge near the barbecue and bar. The array of sea toys includes tenders, Seabobs, WaveRunners, and inflatables, and a crew of 11 takes care of less exerting matters such as massages and meals.

Rates: from $200,000 weekly. Contact: Y.CO, +377.9350.1212, www.y.co
