Captain's Corner: Life on board a charter superyacht

Captain's Corner: Life on board a charter superyacht

Hanikon, 50m

While charter guests come and go, captains are on board for the long haul. We spoke to a handful of skippers to find out what they love most about life aboard their chosen superyacht.

1. Captain Paul Harman, Hanikon

My favourite thing to do on board is finding remote or secluded anchorages away from the crowds in perfect weather conditions.

We have a new outdoor cinema system that has been very well received by guests. It can be linked to Airplay and the internal Kaleidescape system showing the latest movies. Our expansive sun deck and seating area is perfect for this. We recently purchased a brand new 6m inflatable slide which is very popular with family charters.

As for meals on board, I was lucky enough to sample a range of our award-winning chefs meals during the 2017 Antigua Charter Yacht Show. He has many technical talents but my favourite is poached turbot with coconut lime foam, burnt onions and yoghurt. It was fantastic!

It’s a difficult choice for my fondest memory of being out on a charter. It's between perfectly timed sunset cruises on the Amalfi coast or working as a team to pull off challenging charters in remote locations such as Cuba.

Managed for charter by Y.CO, Hanikon is available in the Mediterranean this summer with a weekly charter rate starting from €225,000 EUR per week.
