Create special memories with a Thanksgiving charter this winter

Thanksgiving is the ideal time to pause, sit back, relax and enjoy good company and a superyacht charter over the Thanksgiving period is a popular choice for those looking to escape the winter weather and create precious memories with family and friends.

Here are our top five reasons why a Thanksgiving charter is a must do!

1. Recharge your batteries
Allowing for some much needed rest and relaxation as the year draws to a close and before the busy Christmas season begins, a Thanksgiving superyacht charter is the perfect way to recharge your batteries, not to mention the appeal of escaping the winter weather and enjoying lazy days in sunny climates. There will truly be plenty to be thankful for!

2. Thanksgiving without the stress
Able to welcome small and large groups alike, with many yachts offering flexible configurations or family friendly set ups, a superyacht is the perfect base for groups to come together and celebrate. If the idea of hosting a large and busy Thanksgiving gathering at home doesn’t appeal, a charter removes the need for any stress and planning, and the most difficult decision to be made on your Thanksgiving yacht charter will be what beverage to enjoy or which beach to cruise to.

3. Warm weather for a winter escape
The Caribbean and Bahamas are particularly popular destinations for a Thanksgiving charter, thanks to their warm weather and close proximity to nearby Florida. Beautiful weather, warm air and crystal waters in the Caribbean and Bahamas make these unforgettable parts of the world a popular choice for Thanksgiving charters and throughout the winter season. With countless islands, untouched beaches, a chilled onshore vibe and fresh and vibrant cuisine, your itinerary can be as busy or as relaxing as you like.

4. Enjoy a sumptuous Thanksgiving feast
Food is at the heart of every Thanksgiving celebration and your own private superyacht chef will be able to conjure up a spectacular Thanksgiving feast to remember. Whether you are after a gourmet turkey with all the trimmings, or your own custom menu bursting with local flavours, your yacht’s chef and crew will be able to set up a stunning meal and decorated table for guests to enjoy, with striking scenery as the backdrop. Why not ask your crew to create you your own bespoke cocktail, with a Thanksgiving theme, to add that extra special touch?

5. Game time on board
Of course for many Thanksgiving wouldn’t be complete without watching the NFL game. With superyachts offering high-quality on board AV and communications set ups there is no excuse to miss a single second of all the action. Some yachts even have their own outdoor cinema set up for a truly unique experience, watching the game under the stars.
