Popular television shows such as Below Deck have made superyacht charters a sought-after vacation option. Being on one of these vessels is like being in your own private resort. And, in light of the current pandemic, many private yacht charter vacations are being booked months, and even years, in advance. That said, there can also be last-minute cancellations, so don’t hesitate to inquire if you’re looking for a yacht for a trip in the near future.
What is a Superyacht?
A superyacht (also called a megayacht) is a very large and luxurious marine vessel. In general, these elegant yachts have a professional crew and range from 130 feet to more than 500 feet in length. The extensive amenities and top-notch crew that cater to guests provide a high level of comfort and service. For the absolute pinnacle of travel, a superyacht is the way to go.
The Superyacht Crew
The crew aboard a superyacht is very professional, discreet, and capable of creating the most enjoyable atmosphere for guests. Captains, chief officers, stewards/stewardesses, deckhands, chefs, and engineers are all very well versed in their positions. Of course, the safety of the crew and guests is of utmost importance. For this reason, basic safety training is a mandatory qualification for all crew on a charter yacht larger than 78 feet. In addition, the number of crew aboard a given yacht is typically dictated by the size and amenities of a given yacht. Superyacht crew can range from 5 to 15 or more crew.
Worldwide Superyacht Destinations
Depending on the season, superyachts are most often found in the Caribbean or the Mediterranean. Other expedition superyachts travel to more exotic locations like the fjords of Norway and glaciers of Antarctica or the secluded islands of the South Pacific.
Guests can expect a vast array of water toys and amenities on their superyacht. In fact, larger yachts may have more than one swimming pool, other boats, and some even a helicopter or submarine. Other lavish amenities can include features such as cinemas, gyms, tennis courts, and spas, just to name a few. If you can dream it, there is a superyacht with the amenities you desire.
