Gone are the days when a yacht was simply a statement of wealth. The modern owner is an adventurer, a pioneer reaching for the horizon… but still just as demanding for luxury and quality from their ship.
Increasingly, charters are being used to discover the path less travelled, which brings a whole new set of requirements and needs. These explorer yachts are traveling to the Arctic, Amazon and Alaska to find waters unchartered.
Whilst more rugged and powerful than more traditional yachts, don’t be fooled, these are just as luxurious as their predecessors. Detailed to the highest standards, each delivers the most luxurious experiences and comes packed with the latest toys for your guests.
But what does an explorer yacht look like? Read on to see some of our favourites…
