Once the charter is booked, what do you need to know? Captains and crew share insider tips on exactly how to get ready for the ultimate superyacht vacation.
1. Take advantage of having a private chef
The chef is here for you. Sometimes that means a midnight snack, other times that means not having breakfast until midday, but it always means getting exactly the cuisine you’re after. A private yacht chef is better than a restaurant, it’s more personal. Rather than having to please an entire restaurant, it’s all about one table and making you and your guests happy.
It’s an added level of attention not found on most luxe vacations. Any dietary requests can be met, whether you’re a vegan or just have a specific craving. Food can be flown in and couriered to the yacht if not available in local markets, making £1,100 pots of Beluga caviar, Japanese wagyu beef and jamón Ibérico as ubiquitous as Cristal Champagne.
