No request is too outlandish on a luxury charter… Absolutely London investigates the incredible world of superyachts
By Caspar David
After one of the most difficult years in modern history it is safe to say that everybody is ready for a holiday. West Nautical sells, charters and manages luxury superyachts from its head office in Newcastle upon Tyne and, as travel restrictions begin to ease, the team is once again providing clients with trips of a lifetime.
Whether it’s a relaxing cruise around the UK, a holiday in the South of France, island hopping in Greece or a trip to the picturesque Amalfi Coast in Italy, West Nautical can make it happen. Whatever you need from a holiday, the team of experienced luxury yacht charter experts will make your dream vacation a reality.
“We are thrilled that travel is returning to normal and we can resume providing guests with the holiday of their dreams. All our yachts are fully COVID-19 safe and have protocols and sanitation measures in place to ensure guests can relax knowing they are in safe hands.” said Geoff Moore, Managing Director at West Nautical.
No request is too outlandish on a luxury charter and in the new post-lockdown world the company anticipates many guests will be in serious need of ultimate relaxation. A luxury yacht charter provides guests with the perfect way to do this. West Nautical can even assist with the booking of private jets for those who want as much seclusion as possible.
Geoff explained: “Many people will be worried about tourist destinations being crowded in the current climate, as crowds are obviously still a daunting prospect, but one key advantage of a yacht holiday is that you can get as close to the action as you feel comfortable with. You can enjoy selected trips ashore to your favourite restaurants, shops and attractions, while remaining isolated from the crowds in your luxurious accommodation on board.”
Geoff added: “For those who have never holidayed on a yacht before it might seem overwhelming, but West Nautical takes care of everything, allowing you to relax while we make all arrangements in the background to get the trip organised.”
Why charter? A Superyacht gives you and your guests the luxury of privacy and exclusivity. You will be able to reach more remote areas, hidden coves and have once-in-a-lifetime experiences off the beaten track. You have the flexibility to design your own itinerary and embrace spontaneity.
You will have your own private chef who will make incredible dishes, all tailored to your dining preferences. You will be able to start each morning with a swim in the ocean followed by a delicious freshly prepared breakfast. Spend the afternoon doing watersports or sunbathing on the sundeck with your favourite drink in hand. There is no holiday that is more luxurious and exclusive than your own private yacht with your friends and family.
Superyachts that are available for charter range in size and price and have a variety of amenities, features and water sports toys on board. Charter fees start at £10,000 per week for an all-inclusive holiday for six guests and increase to yachts which cost over £1m per week to charter. There is a variety of yachts available to suit varying needs and budgets. All charters have cancellation policies in place which prohibit any changes to COVID-19 restrictions affecting the cancellation or re-scheduling of your charter.
