Fall and winter charters have opened up this year, with dozens of yachts in the world’s finest cruising grounds, all the way from the Caribbean to the Seychelles, Red Sea, South Pacific and down to Antarctica. The six yachts below are some of the most exclusive, in their individual ways, on the charter market. But there are many, many more that offer guests expeditions, diving with sharks and whales, sportfishing for billfish, photography seminars, wildlife safaris and even culinary retreats.
The beauty of the yacht charter is that it has grown from being a cruise-ship-like experience wandering from point A to point B, to one that can be focused around the guests’ interests and passion. The increasing number of quality charter superyachts around the world also means the cuisine, onboard amenities and service have seen impressive gains in the last few years. With the Delta variant causing uncertainty about future travel, living aboard a yacht for a week, or two, is still the best and safest way to enjoy life with friends and family.
