Sydney, Miami and St Barts are famous destinations for celebrating New Year's Eve on a luxury yacht. But if you’re after a true getaway to celebrate in style on your superyaht here is our pick of four dream destinations for an escapist New Year’s Eve.
Chilean Patagonia is the ultimate New Year’s adventure. More yachts now visit one of the last wilderness regions on Earth each summer, from small sailing yachts to the luxury megayacht Sherakhan, which visited in 2014. The main gateway is Punta Arenas, capital of the Magallanes province, but a route from Puerto Montt to Punta Escondido in the north rewards adventurous sailors. Either way, you’re guaranteed astonishing scenery, isolation and a sense of derring do – you’ll need to be self-sufficient on board and flexible in your schedule. The flip side of environmental purity is strict rules – yachts can only navigate during the daytime and often under speed restrictions. But given that this is one of the world’s most pristine environments, slow cruising sounds pretty good to us.
