Our Pick Of The Best Yachts To Charter This Winter
Isolate In The Doldrums With A Winter Yacht Charter
The best places to charter a yacht and self isolate in luxury with the family this winter are the Bahamas, British Virgin Islands, Maldives, Seychelles, Australia, New Zealand and Indonesia. Motor or sail your way from one beach to another or simply enjoy languishing out in the middle of the sea, with only the dolphins and sunsets for company.
Here are our best picks from the available luxury yachts to charter for the winter season.
For the Bahamas and the British Virgin Islands, we propose The Samara power catamaran. Now I'm not sure if this is a beautiful or hideously ugly yacht, but it is a fabulous floating villa. It even has a grass terrace with two four-poster beds. Bling or glam, you decide. Includes Jet Skis, kite surfing and lounging. Exterior styling by Scott Jutson Yacht Design and interior designed by Sylvia Bolton. 4 cabins, 8 guests, 4 crew.
From $60,000 per week.
