As you move into the 50 – 60 meter (164feet – 196feet) size bracket, you are looking at some of the finest charter yachts on offer. This charter fleet offers exceptional comfort levels and multiple on board spaces. Most yachts of this size will have a displacement hull, delivering large volumes and opulent designs. If true luxury is for you, then this is the size bracket to start in. Most yachts of this size will be able to welcome up to 12 guests, with between five and seven cabins. This will appeal if you have larger groups to accommodate but without wanting to compromise on comfort. The added space on board will often allow space for a private owner’s suite – ideal for those who like their privacy – as well as a generous VIP cabin.
With larger yachts, a bigger crew is required, so charter guests can expect the very highest service levels with at least 12 crew on board, and often more. If you or your charter guests have a specialist field of interest many yachts of this size will have expert crew on board, such as a masseuse, nanny, PADI dive expert or water sports instructor. If you’ve struggled to find the perfect time to learn a new skill, or share a relaxing experience with family now is the time. The IYC charter team can help match your interests with the perfect crew, ensuring an outstanding charter from the second you step on board.
For those wanting to make the most of the playground that the ocean provides, a yacht of this size will ensure you have access to an impressive line-up of water equipment thanks to plenty of storage for tenders, jet skis, inflatables, dive gear and more. Many designs will feature beach clubs that take you to the water’s edge and generous swimming platforms. If diving is your thing, then pick a destination with plenty of reefs and dive sites. Dive down to one of the several shipwrecks dotted around Mykonos or explore the huge stretches of reef in Eletheura in the Bahamas.
Explorer yachts are fast becoming a popular style of charter yacht, and there are several explorer-focused options for those looking for a real adventure. Delivering long ranges, tailored expedition equipment for making the most of a destination, and a crew who delight in taking you to visit secret spots unreachable by standard yachts, an explorer yacht is sure to suit those with a thirst to see the world in a different way. Nowhere is off limits, so let your imagination run wild – the North West Passage is an unforgettable experience, as is the snowy wilds of Alaska.
The extra space that bigger yachts have on board translates to numerous appealing features for those who appreciate the good life. From elevator access across every deck, to full helipads, 50 – 60 meter yachts are full of added extras. Many will boast special facilities such as wellness spa hubs, fully-equipped gyms, game rooms, wine cellars and plenty more.
