There’s nothing so exciting as chartering a yacht in the winter. Be it to escape the frost of our usual Decembers and raise anchor to chase some unseasonal sun, or embrace the ice and take to the Fjords and northern waters to experience winter from the water, boating is best. Here are our 5 favourite yachts to charter this winter…
Axioma is one of the most popular charter yachts on the water. Her exterior is showcased by a huge glass-edge infinity pool on the aft deck, surrounded by space for sunbathing. The yacht also features a large Jacuzzi with swim-up bar on the bridge deck, and a sundeck with BBQ, seating and sunbathing – not to mention the exclusive new partnership with The Organic Pharmacy. AXIOMA’s world-class yacht spa is now only using products manufactured by this premier beauty brand in all guest treatments. This is first yachting partnership ever launched by The Organic Pharmacy, offering the opportunity to enjoy a unique experience not available on any other superyacht.
The highlight of Axioma’s stunning beach house style Alberto Pinto interior is an extraordinary double-height salon atrium with mezzanine gallery. Axioma accommodates 12 guests in 6 sumptuous suites, including a master-sized VIP suite and a dedicated Owner’s deck with media lounge. Guests can work out in the gym with adjoining massage room and steam room, or enjoy movie nights in the yacht’s 3D cinema.
One of the most talked-about launches of 2017, Seven Sins offers unparalleled ocean living, highlighted by a huge beach club set beneath a glass-bottom swimming pool. The beach club features a gym and sauna, with fold-down side balconies opening onto the water; this space can also be converted to a drive-in tender bay.
Above the beach club, a large pool offers a counter-flow current mode, designer lighting and a Jacuzzi function. With accommodation for up to 10 guests in 5 suites,Seven Sins features innovative use of glass throughout, maximising natural light in the interior and offering fantastic views.
Boasting an enviable regatta record including first in class at the Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta, Herreshoff Classic Regatta and Voiles de St Tropez, Eleonora was built to an exacting standard following the original lines of legendary Herreshoff racing schooner Westward.
One of the fastest classic yachts on the water, Eleonora is equally suited to fast competitive sailing or relaxed family cruising, with wide, uncluttered decks for al fresco dining and sunbathing. Eleonora is led by a passionate crew and a captain with 18 years of professional sailing experience.
Built for long-range cruising in luxurious comfort, Ocean’s Seven is a family yacht ideal for relaxation, entertaining and dining. With quality Dutch design by Vripack, Ocean’s Seven was refitted in 2014 with new decor throughout including designer Italian furnishings and Oriental artworks.
10 guests are accommodated in 5 cabins, a full-beam master suite on the main deck, plus two VIP suites and two twins below, each with an extra Pullman opening up the yacht to a total of 12 guests. On deck, guests can relax on the semi-shaded sundeck with Jacuzzi, bar and electric barbecue, or retreat to the skylounge on the bridge deck. A stabilisation system and at anchor stabilisers reduce roll.
Launched in 2017 by Sanlorenzo, Les Bruxellois is a fun family yacht with versatile spaces inside and out. Al fresco dining for 12 on the main and the spacious sundeck offers a Jacuzzi, convertible to a sunpad, with removable awnings for extra shade. The upper salon can be used as a dining room or relaxing lounge area.
Les Bruxellois accommodates 11 guest in 5 suites, including a main-deck owner’s suite offering full-width ocean views from the bed. A hydraulic swim platform lowers completely underwater, enabling quick access to the yacht’s impressive collection of water toys which includes jetskis and Seabobs.
