Top Christmas Charter Destinations for Winter Sun

Super Yachts Charters - Sun, 12/20/2020 - 00:00
Top Christmas Charter Destinations for Winter Sun 2020 has been a trying year for all, and as travel restrictions are eased and the world begins to open up again, many yachting enthusiasts will look to reclaim the lost charter season with a festive getaway. Proving winter escapes don’t need to be spent layered up in the cold, we give you our pick of the top five Christmas charter destinations in the sun this season.

Antigua & Barbuda
This island paradise is an easy pick for a Christmas charter. Don’t be fooled by the Caribbean islands’ abundant array of pearly white beaches and balmy weather; Antiguans and Barbudans certainly know how to celebrate the festive season in style. A popular choice this time of year due to the inaugural Antigua Charter Yacht Show, the island comes alive in December with yachting enthusiasts flooding to enjoy the quaint UNESCO World Heritage listed Nelson’s Dockyard or the scenic views from Shirley Heights with rum punch in hand. Antigua & Barbuda is also home to a splendid choice of 5-star luxury hotels and resorts to wash away the winter blues, including the sumptuous Carlisle Bay with its very own private beach.  

Abu Dhabi
If you are looking to compensate for lost time with grandiosity and glamour this Christmas, look no further than the underrated yachting hotspot of Abu Dhabi. Blending beach bliss with urban splendour, the yachting elite flock to Abu Dhabi’s glittering skyline this time of year to enjoy the F1 weekend and dine in some of the world’s most renowned restaurants. Dock in one of Yas Marina’s circuit-side berth or drop anchor before a literal palace over at Emirates Palace Marina; no matter where you stay, Abu Dhabi’s penchant for extravagance is sure to make this Christmas a holiday to remember. 

Dominican Republic
Offering island idyll on a larger scale than Antigua, the Dominican Republic is the perfect choice for a Caribbean getaway with a buzz. Off the beaten track of many charter routes, the Dominican Republic is an oft-overlooked charter destination with an array of superyacht marinas ready to welcome luxury yachts. From whale-watching to soaking in the island’s vibrant nightlife, there will be no shortage of activities to while away your stay in the Dominican Republic. But it is the local hospitality and choice of luxury resorts such as the sprawling Casa de Campo which make this island a standout pick for a festive charter this year, offering the very best in relaxation and welcoming as a difficult year comes to an end.   

Australia
A popular choice for a winter cruising holiday, the vast expanse of Australia is a true superyacht haven with some unforgettable experiences on offer. From world-class marinas to remote diving spots, Australia is a region in itself and December is the best time to discover it. Winter blues will seem a thing of the past as you spend an untraditional Christmas day on Bondai Beach, Sydney, or shake off the Christmas hangover with some incredible Great Barrier Reef diving. With Australia’s ever-expanding superyacht facilities, sublime cruising and inexhaustible sources of adventure, the only problem will be when it comes to returning home. 

Fiji
This sprawling chain of over 300 jaw-dropping islands is an absolute must visit on any sun-seeking festive charter. With a balmy tropical climate, the verdant archipelago in the glittering South Pacific is a treasure trove of adventure and beauty. Volcanic formations and mysterious temples make up the islands’ unique appeal, while world-class facilities await your superyacht at Port Denarau Marina. Burn off the Christmas calories with any choice of exciting water sports, including turtle diving, surfing, kayaking and unparalleled hikes.

46m Cloud Atlas Completes Refit Ahead of Charter Season

Super Yachts Charters - Tue, 12/15/2020 - 10:00
46m Cloud Atlas Completes Refit Ahead of Charter Season 46-metre superyacht Cloud Atlas has completed an extensive refit which will see her head into the 2021 charter season in pristine condition. Available through leading Mediterranean agency Flying Charter, Cloud Atlas is an exciting proposition for luxury adventures on the water.

Built in 1990 by the former Lloyd’s Ships in Australia, Cloud Atlas is a revered charter superyacht with plenty of entertainment and opulent guest spaces to indulge in. Now, thanks to the recent refit project, she boasts updated modern amenities and beautiful craftsmanship to welcome guests onboard.

The interior areas have been rebuilt and enriched with new handcrafted top-quality finishes, with extreme attention to detail. The fine detailing and sublime materials justify Cloud Atlas’ status as a world-class yacht, providing a luxurious base for charters with friends and family.

Another feature of the refit is the new lighting system onboard Cloud Atlas. Installed in all zones of the yacht, this brightens up the guest spaces and provides a unique atmosphere to enjoy. This has also involved remaking the exterior steel ship names to add extra flair.

The lighting isn’t the only new technology installed on the superyacht. Another work included in the refit was the installation of a state-of-the-art technology system with a new internet system, home automation entertainment system, security camera and satellite TV system. Guests have access to all technology to enhance their charter experience and entertainment.

A brand-new galley has also been added, benefitting from the latest equipment to allow the Chef better resources to give guests an amazing culinary experience.

Dasha Tinkova On Life Onboard Luxury Explorer La Datcha

Super Yachts Charters - Thu, 12/03/2020 - 11:30
Dasha Tinkova On Life Onboard Luxury Explorer La Datcha When the 77m Damen explorer yacht La Datcha was delivered in September this year, the industry marvelled at news of her radical charter itinerary. Pushing the boundaries of explorer yachting to unprecedented heights, guests onboard La Datcha will be coral reef diving in the Seychelles one month and heliskiing in South Kamchatka the next. We spoke with Dasha Tinkova, Marketing Director of the Tinkoff Collection and daughter of La Datcha's new Owner Oleg Tinkov, to gain exclusive insight into what guests can expect from a stay onboard this 77m luxury explorer yacht.

‘The Tinkoff Collection started about six years ago,’ Dasha tells us. The venture, which initially began with the family building a ski chalet in Val Thorens, has grown with the addition of a bespoke luxury rental in each of the family’s favourite destinations - including a Mexican villa in Cabo San Lucas and a Tuscan palazzo in Forte dei Marmi.

‘As a family we’re very active, we love to do extreme sports. We found that often when we went on holiday somewhere remote, with extreme sports and activities on offer, the accommodation was a little bit lacking. The perfect example is the place in Astrakhan in Russia.’

Each of the Tinkoff Collection homes sleeps between 12 to 16 people comfortably, complete with spa, pool and gym facilities. The idea, Dasha explains, is for holiday goers to enjoy the very best in comfort and privacy afforded by renting a home instead of a hotel. Now with the addition of the luxury explorer boat, this philosophy has been given new life. 

‘Normally when you go to places like Kamchatka, where it’s not catered for any kind of luxury, you stay in a tiny cabin in the middle of the woods with no WiFi or anything. So having the boat and being able to go out, have a crazy day of heliskiing then come back and stay in the height of luxury, that’s a really great thing.’ 

La Datcha is currently completing her safety video in Turkey, Dasha tells us, but the Tinkov family will be the first to stay onboard overnight in an upcoming trip to the Seychelles. 

We asked Dasha how La Datcha compares to previous luxury explorer yachting experiences she and her family have enjoyed. ‘Last winter we went to Greenland on an explorer, which was amazing,’ Dasha says. ‘However, the viewing platform on that boat was outside, so if we wanted to go out and see the polar bears it was absolutely freezing. We wanted to make sure ours on La Datcha was inside, with comfortable seating and all the rest.’

‘I would also say the standard on La Datcha is the best of the best. Every room has a TV, sometimes even two and a third in the bathroom. Her entertainment systems are Bang & Olufsen, her furnishings are all Baxter and Promemoria which is the world’s most expensive furniture.’

With such a high cost venture of course comes a great emotional investment. Oleg Tinkov was ‘very hands on’ even down to the most intricate detail on La Datcha, Dasha explains. ‘My dad was very particular even down to the duvet covers. We treat our properties the same; they’re very personal projects and we spend a lot of time in them, so we want to make sure it’s everything we love to the highest standards.’ 

And the great care paid to the project has certainly paid off. La Datcha has already generated a huge amount of charter interest, particularly to the island of Madagascar where very few boats can access and luxury accommodation is virtually nonexistent. 

‘Because it takes so long to get there, very few yachts will go for a week’s charter,’ Dasha goes on, pointing to the benefits of La Datcha’s unique business model. ‘But with La Datcha, you book the week you want based on the destination, so you have to adapt to the itinerary of the boat.’  

There is much room for flexibility within those destinations though. With two helicopters, a submarine, a large rescue boat and four jet skis, guests onboard La Datcha will never be wanting for toys on which to explore the local area. 

We were interested to know whether La Datcha’s 25 crew members had been specially trained to prepare them for her wild itinerary. Dasha relayed a message sent to the family from the boat’s captain:
‘The crew onboard La Datcha have been handpicked from a number of specialist programs… We are all trained professionals who have dedicated our careers to this industry however in addition to what would be seen on a normal white yacht, the deck officers are polar code trained and certified to navigate in both the South and North Pole region, with particular reference to ice navigation.’

La Datcha will also be staffed by two diving instructors trained to operate ‘The Triton’ (a three-man submarine), a paramedic and a nurse, as well as coming equipped with its own ICD Compressing Chamber in case of any diving emergencies. 

‘If you are in somewhere like Kamchatka or Madagascar, getting to the closest hospital might sometimes take hours, so it was very important to have all the necessities onboard.’

The crew experience plays an extremely large role, even on a charter as unique as La Datcha’s. ‘We generally stay onboard to eat. There are so many zones to eat, and the crew will lay each table differently every evening, so it feels like you’re going to a new restaurant every night.’ 

Dasha goes on, ‘When you’re out in these destinations, local fishermen will often come up and sell the catch of the day. So you want to make sure the chef knows how to cook that, what it’s best paired with, etc. Our chefs are amazing at that.’

There is much to be said for the combination of luxury accommodation with high-octane destinations, but a truly unforgettable charter experience is found in the details. With this in mind, the latest addition to the Tinkoff Collection is sure to prove a resounding success.
