Ultimate luxury vs adventure

Once you’ve seen the Riviera and the popular parts

of the Mediterranean and Caribbean, then what?

Increasingly, UHNW individuals want to contrast the

experience of 5 star luxury with that of adventure.

Since yachting allows the customer freedom of the

seas, they can decide where to go – and when.

Within Europe, newer yachting destinations such as

the Eastern Mediterranean are becoming increasingly

appealing. Similarly there is a growing desire for access

to even more remote locations such as the Galapagos,

Antarctica and Asia.

As a result the number of explorer vessels and even

yachts with ice-breaking hulls is increasing. Similarly,

the number of long range vessels allowing for voyages

across greater distances has increased. Numbers of

ancillary craft is also rising to facilitate the storage of

additional sporting materials such as diving equipment

and providing extra accommodation for guests.

“People hanker after what’s newand exciting.

Where haven’t we gone yet? What canwe

do, as opposed towhat we have done, is

the biggest thing. What is there other than

just the so-calledmilk run in theMed or

the Caribbean. Let’s start travelling further

afield, seeing newdestinations, newplaces.”
