The best charter yachts available in remote destinations




Discover one the Middle East’s superyacht hotspots on board 72 metre Serenity. Following an extensive refit last year, the yacht has been granted the first permit to charter in the UAE. The new permit means that she will be able to stay in the region for more than the usual 21 days, allowing ample time for charter guests to explore the region.

Custom built in 2004 by Austal, Serenity can accommodate up to 30 guests in 15 cabins, which makes her ideal for event charters such as the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Other stand out features include a spacious sundeck with a large Jacuzzi surrounded by sun pads, multiple al fresco areas for both formal and casual dining, a gym and a cinema room. She also boasts a great selection of water toys including paddle boards, jet skis and a fly board.

An increasing number of superyacht have been spotted in the Gulf region over the past few years. The UAE offers a host of onshore activities for charter guests to enjoy including shopping malls, beach clubs and some of the world’s best spas. In Abu Dhabi, the Louvre that opened last November is a further draw for visitors.

Serenity is available for charter with SSH Maritime from €450,000 per week.
