Since her delivery in 1999, the 77-metre Boadicea has taken guests around the world during her time as a popular charter yacht. The Terance Disdale designed-yacht can be seen in many Mediterranean hotspots with her luxury features such as a cinema, spa, beach club with a bar, medical room, pool and touch and go helipad.
To find out what life is like for charter guests of Boadicea, we join the captain and his crew on the Amels superyacht for a week of Greek island hopping as recommended by Cecil Wright & Partners.
Day one: Athens
Meet Boadicea in Athens, the city that gave birth to democracy. Head off to explore the iconic ancient ruins, including the world-famous Parthenon. Afterwards, foodies can go to Athens’ central market, Varvakios Agora, to wander through the colourful spice stalls and fishmongers before returning to the yacht for a welcome dinner on board.
Day two: Kythnos
Make the 47-nautical-mile cruise to the tranquil island of Kythnos. A weekend bolt-hole for Athenians in the know, the island is home to nearly 100 beaches. Kolona beach is the most famous and is a great place to spend the day at anchor swimming or making use of the yacht’s toy box. If you fancy stretching your legs, head inland to visit the picturesque rustic villages of Horta or Dryopida.
Day three: Sifnos
Awake in the cerulean waters of Platis Gialos Bay on the island of Sifnos. Enjoy breakfast on board before visiting the petite chapel of the Seven Martyrs, which is perched on a rocky outcrop above the sea. Dine in one of the island’s many traditional mezedopoleío to sample local delicacies such as kleftiko (slow-cooked lamb wrapped in paper) and giouvetsi (veal casserole).
Day four: Milos and Poliegos
In the morning Boadicea will cruise to the island of Milos, famed for its lunar-like rock formations. Spend the morning exploring the dramatic rocks at Sarakiniko beach before relocating to the neighbouring island of Poliegos, inhabited only by a herd of goats. Drop anchor near the Bay of Mirsini and swim in the emerald waters.
Day five: Koufonisi
Head off the beaten track to the two islets that form Koufonisia, one of the secret jewels of the Cyclades. Pano Koufonisi and the unpopulated Kato Koufonisi are separated by a 200-metre strait and are nicknamed the “hollow islands” because of their huge caves. Relax on the secluded beaches before an alfresco dinner at anchor under the stars.
Day six: Paros
Relocate 30 nautical miles to the whitewashed villages and windmills of Paros. Stop off at the island’s colourful fishing port and wander through the flower-filled lanes. In the afternoon discover the tiny uninhabited islands that stud the deep blue bay. For the best beaches, sail over to Paros’s petite neighbour Antiparos, which has just one little harbour village.
Day seven: Mykonos
Finish your charter with a bang on Mykonos. Explore Little Venice’s labyrinth of streets or head to one of the famous beach clubs. Those seeking a more cultural experience can visit the nearby island of Delos, one of Greece’s most important archaeology sites. Enjoy a final dinner on board before departing from the international airport the next day.
