<< Back to Robb Report, December 2003

    You and nine guests can be party to a once-in-a-lifetime event in Greece next August, when the country that created the original Olympics in ancient times hosts the summer games for the first time since 1896. Private Jetaway of Los Angeles is offering a two-week trip for 10 that will transport you aboard a Boeing Business Jet from New York to Athens, where you will attend the games’ opening ceremonies on August 13. The gift also includes tickets for each guest to two additional major Olympic competitions.

    A megayacht docked along the Athens waterfront will serve as your residence throughout the games. The vessel will be well over 100 feet in length, and depending on the specific yacht that Private Jetaway charters, its amenities could include a master suite with a marble bathroom, four staterooms with private baths, a wine cellar, a baby grand piano, gym equipment, a hot tub, mountain bikes, as many as three personal watercraft, water skis, and gear for fishing, snorkeling, and diving. A master European chef will prepare your onboard meals, and between Olympic events, the captain will sail wherever you wish to visit in the Mediterranean.

    Price:Starting at $1.5 million.
